This was a really excellent trip, which far exceeded our expectations - maybe we were a bit lucky, but we saw and photographed so many stunning wildlife encounters. The tour guide (Steve) and our driver/guides (Ole Maantu and Nemes) were all very knowledgable and excellent at spotting wildlife. The accommodation and food was generally all really great, and we had a lot of fun with our other travel companions.
