I think the main grouse for Gondwana has to be the overall lack of animals in this vast stretch of land over 11000 hectares. However, the accommodation and food were excellent, and services from staff, especially Vincent, Colin, and Alvin were fantastic. Young ranger Mike also should be praised for his unrelenting "chase" of animals, even though his "people" skills really need improving. Overall as a first timer, this place has been a great experience, so well done Gondwana!
