    Response from Majenda, Owner at 3 Days - Exploring Selous Game Reserve
    Responded Jan. 7, 2019
    Hello Thank you for the review as this helps us to improve our services. Sorry to hear about the car, it happens sometimes cars breakdown. In your case our car broke 3 rear springs and thus it was not possible to use it the next day and we did not manage to get replacement until when we arrived Dar. To avoid loosing a day without game drives we had to join you with another car which had our guests too. We appreciate for choosing watu safaris among many other operators you may have chosen. Asante sana and karibu sana
