Meg, our representative at Giltedge worked tirelessly to ensure we had the best itinerary and accommodation to make this a trip of a lifetime. It did not disappoint! Everthing ran smoothly. We were looked after wherever we went and it suited our travel needs (with children) perfectly. When we mistakingly left an ipad somewhere Meg had this returned to us promptly and if we needed any questions answered whilst on our trip she was always available with great advice. I would recommend Giltedge in an instant to anyone travelling to Africa. Thank you!
