My wife Margaret and I rode together on the Waterfalls and Wildlife Safari in August, 2014. This was our first such excursion and we were a little apprehensive (and excited too!). We had a wonderful experience. Rene and Colette provided thoughtful advise and material to help us prepare for and remember the trip. Rene does a great job of balancing the sense of wonder about the magical qualities of Africa (he has poetry in his soul) and the calm reassurance and sense of humour that allows you to relax and remember to take it all in. There are many thoughtful touches (we were frequently being surprised and delighted!) At the same time Rene made room to individualize your experience based on your interests and preferences. We will talk about this experience for years.
