          We will be traveling to Ngama ourselves the first week in Jan and are beyond excited. It does seem like a well kept secret as far as options for safari in south africa. As you have recently been, i have a few questions which i hope you don't mind answering. First how was the weather and what would you suggest as far as clothing and footing? In addition we are struggling with what activities to do and what to leave off. We will be there for 4 nights what did you love and couldn't live without and what would you choose to leave out? Thanks so much for you help in advance!
