    I'm amazed by the indifference shown by some of the sales reps that you have encountered. I'm in Brisbane at present, living part time here and part time in Africa due to Covid. In February I wanted...

    30 Day Trip To Botswana

    Yes, that's our plan for a 7 month safari to East Africa when we return in 2022 or 2023. We will leave our Bushlapa in storage in SA. We will move fairly often with quite a few 1 or 2 day stays, so...
