    5.0 - Excellent

    One of the best trips of my life. Absolute Africa have been doing overland trips for over 30 years so they know their stuff. Couldn't fault the itinerary, the amazing food we cooked, guides, equipment. Met really great people too who I still keep in touch with. This is the best way to see Africa. If I had the time and money i would have loved to the full trip from Nairobi to Cape Town.
