Seafu was an excellent driver. Super professional and friendly. We felt secure the whole time and the trip was great. We wanted to switch one of the stops, and he arranged everything so we could do it. We highly recommend it

If you are looking for a nice and relaxing road trip to see the main highlights this is your choice. The safari was the best part from my point of view. Our guide was very knowledgeable, chatty and supportive.
