Excellent itinerary, and great staff

The crew there were extremely professional and conscientious, Mambo in particular shared an impressive knowledge of the places and countries we travelled through. The itinerary was varied an every educational, as were the group I was travelling with. I have already been on a number of trips with this company, including through Central America last year, although this is the first time I have been on an overland camping trip.
The variety of opportunities in your annual brochure is impressive, although I choose to travel quite often independently and freelance. However, next time I am thinking of another long-haul destination, I shall ensure that your options are close at hand.
