It was a pleasure having you stay with us and we're delighted that we could meet expectations even on comparison with African lodges- which have long set the bench mark for luxury safaris. Thank you for the encouraging words, it's great motivation for the future. Looking forward to having you back soon- this time with your husband and kids too.
