Mr Robert Gillespie

"Top for accommodation and food and after the first day experience with our Ranger driving too fast for the conditions everything after that was top notch and Ray could not have been more helpful in ensuring that everyone was OK and enjoying the experience. Daily Lunch on the deck was superb, especially as we had the animals to view just across the river."
