          My sister and I are staying with you from Sept 23rd through Sept 25th. We have been told by our travel agent that we will receive full board (3 meals a day) and 4 game drives (one our day of arrival, 2 the next day, and one on the morning of our departure) but our service voucher says "In a luxury room (twin) on a Full Board + 02 Game Drives including drinks basis) for two nights. Your site says breakfast is complimentary. I want to insure that we will in fact receive 3 meals a day and go on the 4 game drives promised. Please respond quickly as we fly out on Sept 18th!
