On behalf of The Trek Tours Australia team Hi 813fiona, Thank you for the lovely review and for sharing your experience with us. It is always wonderful to hear of the connections made with guests and guides on trips. And sharing an experience like this together can create lasting friendships. The trip is certainly a great balance of challenging trek and peaceful afternoons spent swimming in waterholes so that you are left feeling both challenged and rested and also miles away from the day-to-day. Thanks again for sharing your experience and best wishes for your next adventure. Best regards, The Trek Tours Australia Team
