This trip to South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe was a real eye opener and dispelled pretty well all my preconceptions about this part of Africa. It was very professionally organised around features known in detail by Steve and that knowledge was passed on to us as we visited those features.

There were no places we visited which failed to take our interest and the administration of the tour was at a level that was not rushed or high pressured and had room to fit in some additional activities by popular request.

The cost was all inclusive (except for a couple of meals) so there were no surprises. This was the best tour of several that I have ever been on and was a true holiday as well as very educational.
