Dear Maxine & Cheryl
We are now back from our great trip to Zim and Botswana with all the family. The whole trip went really well and was very professionally organised. A special thank you to the staff on O B Joyful ñ Nysan, Warren, Silas and Pilate ñ they could not have been more helpful and went out of their way to give us a superb holiday. The meals were absolutely delicious and the boat trips on the tenders memorable. Thanks guys.
The transfer to Binga was rather longer than the 4 hours (over 5 hours going and more on the way back!) but apart from a burst tyre all went well. Thanks to Laurence for his driving.
The AíZambezi staff were great and made a plan when the original rooms booked were not available, and a special thanks to Mufty the duty manager who helped transport a rather large stone elephant family to Johannesburg and also retrieved a bag which had been left behind and brought it to the airport for us. Enjoyed the dance troupe and the marimba band at mealtimes. Shearwater were very professional and we all enjoyed the activites, especially the white water rafting (voted number one) and elephant back safari.
Thanks also to Mowani for a superb stay. The meals were great. Thanks also to Anastasia and Moses from your office for transporting us on the game drives and even arranging a lion sighting, and for the lovely cruises down the Chobe watching all the elephants and assorted wildlife.
Thanks to Six and Ramjass for the transport arrangements.
The trip could not have gone better ñ even our flights were on time. So a big thank you to all at Flame of Africa for the trip which celebrated several birthdays and our 50th wedding anniversary.
Very best wishes
