What was your most memorable moment in Africa?
Driving up to the bush dinner at Gomoti at the conclusion of our afternoon game drive and seeing the area lit with hanging lanterns and bagged candles. The African staff provided entertainment (3 African songs) when we arrived. It was totally unexpected and really wonderful.
If you could give future travelers one word of advice, what would it be?
Keep in mind it is a sedentary trip (hours on the safari vehicles morning and late afternoon) and your schedule is dictated for you.
