My May 2018 trip

On this trip, I visited South Africa & Zimbabwe between 5-May-2018 and 19-May-2018 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

GoodGood

I wish we had known just how early in the season we were going and the limited amount of game sightings we should expect, we would have gone later if we had.
Otherwise the trip was well done and worked as planned.

This is the second time we've used Maruska and were very pleased before, so perhaps it was poor communication on my part.
