I liked pretty much all aspects, really. Obviously the cycling, but also the hiking and kayaking. We were super lucky with the weather, the evening meals were spectacular...what more can you ask? People should bring lots of energy bars, sports drinks and a laundry line. Oh...another thing, please recommend to customers to bring one roll of clingy wrap to wrap their cycles during the transfers on the trailer. This will save so much time and effort to clean the entire bike after every transfer. (There's a lot of sand on route)

The evening meals were great. I couldn't believe how tasty they were and always very filling which we needed for all the calories we burned each day. Both Peter and Albert worked extremely hard throughout the trip. It seemed like they were always doing something - preparing meals; providing us information about the countries we were visiting, the animals we'd see along the road & stopping to allow us good views of the animals. I thought that Peter (biking guide) and Albert (team driver) did a great job supporting the trip. Albert was a great part of the crew. He was always positive and had a smile on his face --- he wanted everyone to have a good time. He did a great job driving and was able to spot animals way before anyone else. I also enjoyed that he provided information about the places we were seeing and the animals.

Peter and Andrew were great. They both had both had an excellent knowledge of flora and fauna. They both worked very hard for three straight weeks! Most Enjoyed - Camping in the game park Namibia! What a fantastic place!!!The whole trip exceeded my expectations. And I sure did not expect the high quality of the campgrounds!!

Peter (the guide)was an excellent leader, with a good sense of humour and a lot to do. It required organsiation and energy to ride, fix bikes, load and unload the trailer, shop, cook and camp. Excellent bike mecahanic - quick and efficient and lots of helpful advice for the cycling conditions. Good route knowledge. Great knowledge of the country, the wildlife, culture and people. What I enjoyed the most - A sense of travelling from point A to point B. Chobe river, the safari, camping in Moreami seeing animals in the wild. The group. The scenery. Good mix of cycling and other activities.
