"Just a quick note to let you know our trip went well and the choices you made for camps, time at each and sequence were all good.

Traveling from Livingstone to Duma Tau to Xigera to Mombo was right on: We moved from a nice hotel environment to the camp closest to nature, notched up a bit at Xigera and Mombo is without doubt the finest of the Wilderness Safari camps in terms of facilities and staff training."
