“On several days we had no option but to have a buffet lunch & a buffet dinner leading to many eating & spending more than they’d wish too. Whilst this may be unavoidable ocassionally, whenever possible there should not be no more than one buffet per day.”

“Would love to see the game parks move to electric vehicles and limit numbers. Train journey - need to reserve as didn’t see much due to overcrowding. Not down to explore but as tourism expands going to be a problem”

“There were a couple of people on the trip that didn’t seem to fit with what I’ve always understood Explore to be about (off the beaten track, local experiences, travel rather than a holiday). Perhaps be clearer in the marketing? ”
