        Hi, We are planning to go to Umani Springs and / or Ithumba in November and we have a few questions: 1) can anybody recommend a good operator who could arrange transportation and booking with DSWT? 2) If we have to choose only one between Umani and Ithumba, what would you recommend? Thanks!
