Our 12-days tour in Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe was organized by Jenman African Safaris. All the programs, all the lodges were perfect. We had excellent time, relaxing and exciting as well. They did a very good job.

The pop up roof on the vehicle also broke which detracted from the picture taking. Africa is a beautiful country to see, as are the All the amazing animals but I would recommend shopping around.
