Just returned from an excellent day with Zongi and driver Pascal.
They were truly first class and both did your company proud. Zongi’s knowledge and obvious passion for his country were exceptional. Well done. We look forward to our next tour with African Blue out of Durban in a couple of weeks time.
Kind regards
