We would definitely recommend the trip. Our bus driver Linda was the best driver. She made our trip interesting, knowledgeable and humorous! We saw lots of animals and had a great lunch at the roadhouse. It was a long day but a very good day!

Amazing trip. Just for others, don't sit in the back of the bus as the dust that flies in ends up in the back. Melanie, our guide was so full of information and such fun. Worth the trip.

No, you don't stop and get out, but the bus does slow and you can take pictures through the window.
