Great tour! We had a first rate guide,Ben(der). Knowledgable , flexible and good cook.
The camping was luxury. The sites were really great. Cruise in the wetlands of the Yellow water a real highlight.
Generally the trip was very good. However we didn't visit the gold-mining area and one campsite was poorly equipped. We would expect campsites to be be very well equipped and for bathroom facilities to be of excellent quality for the money we paid. A lot of time was spent traveling in the bus.
