By the way, if you're not sure about self-drive, it is perfectly ok, and a very good way to easily see the region. Shadrack met us at the airport (waiting when our plane was delayed) and drove us...

From the very first contact I instinctively knew Shadrack was a good man with a great company. Shadrack and his UK based colleague Nikky helped us to choose a varied experience of lodges and safaris. The correspondence was first class providing advice and guidance on all the questions we asked from visas, airport transfers, hotel bookings. Shadrack was able to... More
