The tour was organized by Marlin Travel in Duncan with tour consultant Bill Dumont. If I was doing this again, I would go directly to Jewel of Africa. Neil bent over backwards to make this truly a trip of a lifetime.

Bring a deep focus camera (100mm-250mm), dress for the cold and heat, bring adaptors, sunglasses and hats are a must, and above all else bring the desire to explore yourself and other cultures, destinations, and organisms that make Earth one of a kind.
