    2.0 - Rather poor

    The tour guide/leader knew nothing about the itinerary. It was her 1st trip in Africa. She's from New Zealand and introduced herself by saying she has a thick accent. She did nothing to improve on it despite the fact that this tour had many of the 34 participants from countries that do not speak Eng as a 1st language. As an ESL instructor in Canada I know that accents can and should be changed when working with public. Many arrangements were left to either improvisation or last minute decisions. We arrived at hotels that were overbooked, campsites with stuck, or flooding toilets/showers that were more than 200 m from tents. The meals provided were repetitive to say the least. A broken board inside the bus was never replaced, but notices could have been posted daily using tacks or tape. There was daily confusion with departure and arrival times due to lack of posting and thick accent. The interior of the bus was lacking some pockets and liquid holders; some seats reclined either too much or nothing at all. The driver of Peeky did as much as he possibly could but he was overwhelmed by the amount of issues (both pax and mechanical). The charger inside the bus was off most of the time. The leader never made sure the blue light had been turned off which generated electrical problems. Daily, we were asked to buy our own 'snakes' to complement the provided meals, but the cooler was too small for 34 people, and the fridge was only for the tour meals. The choice of a winery for our 2nd to last nite would have been nice barring the fact that there was only one meal choice: beef despite the fact that majority of people had chosen chicken. Choose places that provide the services required rather than subjecting clients to their 'choices'. Large groups like this one impose delays on crossing broders, or ordering food in restos.
