  • Dear Rob, I know you have already heard from other family members that we had a truly memorable holiday. Everyone was well, happy and delighted throughout. We constantly commented on how everything felt “just right”, each place we stayed fitted our needs perfectly and we loved the contrasting styles. The amount of travelling was easily manageable and in fact we were glad of longish road journeys in order to catch a glimpse of the real world beyond the luxuries that we enjoyed. With best wishes and very many thanks for the great care you took to arrange everything so well for our group spanning 7 decades!

    Carol travelled with her extended family through South Africa and into Botswana’s Tuli Block
