This was a wonderful introduction to Africa and its extraordinary wildlife. It is a basics trip so if you are not happy with camping and basic accommodation - consider upgrading to other options. Also there is a lot of time driving to destinations but in the end it was a chance to snooze and look out the window. The game parks were incredible and we had a wonderful time. I would highly recommend this trip.
