This was a lesson in what can go wrong with a family holiday and the virtue of using a good agent such as DialAFlight. Martin and Vincent were superb at handling the damage caused by circumstances beyond their control. WELL DONE and thank you.

I would have liked more detail about the Elephant House accommodation (Stable Cottage). I appreciate that the style goes with the area and access to Addo National Park but if given the choice I would have opted for an upgrade. However, overall this was a very memorable trip and the Safari at Pumba Lodge far surpassed our expectations.
