Alex, UK
As you say, we are now safely back after a wonderful nearly 3 weeks in southern Africa.  All your arrangements went perfectly. Avis had got us a Corolla (I had called in to check the booking/car type on our way through Jo'burg to Durban the previous week).  Hippo Hollow Lodge was excellent, and again everything fell into place as planned.  We did your Panoramic Route recommendation the first day Sunday, after a long Saturday flying and driving - then 2 early mornings in the park, and a more leisurely breakfast and return on Wednesday.

So everything was great, and we did appreciate all your trouble in making the arrangements for us.  And we shall certainly be happy to recommend you to our friends with similar requirements in that area.  I am sending Pierre a copy of this, with our thanks Pierre for passing us on to someone so helpful and efficient!

Many thanks.
