Brenda and I can’t thank you enough for the effort you all put in to ensure we had the most fantastic wedding one could ever imagine.When we tell people of our trip they don’t believe what was done for us and are completely blown away by the fact we actually got married in the bush.
The whole experience of the game drives and the care and attention given by the team is second to none. From the breakfast by the pool to the Boma ladies waving us away before the wedding now all seems surreal.
