Always attentive to everything I needed, Giada was the best person I could find to make my reservation and take away all the doubts we had during the process. She was very patient and willing to clarify everything, to solve everything, even when I sent wrong information, she was willing to solve everything. I really appreciate your attention.

Hi Donna, Thanks for the message. Just want to thank you for all your work you've done to secure our reservation at Kruger. Our stay at Kruger was FA-BU-LOUS. and we loved our experience in South Africa. Couple of our friends are currently considering traveling to south Africa in the near future and we have provided them with your name so they can contact you for any help they might need for their trip. Once again, It was a pleasure to deal with you and we want to thank you again for all the hard work.
