Sorry to take a few days to write this note to all the staff at Mfuwe Lodge, and Chindeni. My family group said it "was the trip of a lifetime" Thank you all for making it a great success. Susan was a wonderful host at Chindeni. The entire group loved her and it was obvious she had a great rapport with her staff. Hope to see her back next season. All the staff at the lodge worked hard to ensure the group had a great time. it was great the Elephants cooperated too. A special thank you to Francis who drove us to camp in the torrential rain. His driving skills have really progressed since Ian, Lisa and I took him out on training trips. Peter Milanzi was terrific. His knowledge of the bush made the tour really special. The group would like the e mail of the Royal Geographic Society to nominate him for guide of the year. Please send to me and I will forward to my clients. Mtimba, zikomo for having the sun downer at Ele crossing. It was fantastic and made the farewell evening very
