They have good equipment, optimised procedure and professional guides which make us feel safe. Make sure don't wear slippers and take care of your camera or mobile. You'll never get it back if you drop it.

We stopped after seeing Sibebe rock and the rock art paintings. It was a peaceful place to have a very reasonable lunch while watching all the grazing wild game. The mushroom soup was outstanding!
