Most sensational holiday ever

“Just the most sensational holiday ever. I am still pinching myself and wondering if I really took the photos I have and that I really experienced all these amazing things. The entire crew were sensational from Norman, who looked after our cabin, to Richard who served us in the restaurant along with Keith and Marlon and the wonderful expedition team. Safety was always paramount and the zodiacs were comfortable and taking photos worked well as people cooperated with either kneeling or standing. I would highly recommend this trip as a trip of a lifetime and worth every penny. Thank you so much Quark Expeditions, Solan and all the team and crew.”
