Hi Anthea, I booked a 6 day safari in Tanda Tula with you last September. Just a note to say it was truley amazing. We saw all the big five and the people were wonderful. We met many new friends. We are photographers and started a photo/blog with some of the photos we took. Again, thanks for the help in finding the perfect place.
