Relax in the oversized sofas on the viewing deck with a chilled drink in hand watching over the waterhole to see who will be next down for a drink, will it be beautiful zebras or the magnificent elephants.
Joanne Swinton dealt with us and our holiday with endless good humour and patience. Her suggestions were perfect and we all had a magical time. She really knew her "stuff". She even organised a car and driver for our first full day in Dar es Salaam which was a kindness beyond any duty. She arranged for our unaccompanied children to be chaperoned through all the airports, and for my husband and me to be taken care of too.
