“You booked a flight for us that meant we would be late (just) for the first excursion. Luckily the tour leader was happy to wait 1 hour before starting excursion, and this was not a problem.”

“It is a wonderful trip but I would suggest spend a bit less time doing the city trips and a bit more time at the wildlife areas as they were the star and the city trips were much less interesting.”
