    Wow, wow, wow!!! I don't even know where to start. This 6 days trip, Ultimate wild Safaris, was amazing! First off, the company itself: When booking these types of tours from the US, most will ask that you wire transfer the money or pay the credit card service fee. I got super nervous on this part. After spending 6 days with this company- I now can safely tell people, don't worry! They are a very reputable company.
