Thank you George and Yoav. So much Refreshing air was a wonderful feeling. The trees are spectacular. I loved Yoav’s knowledge as we all walked along. I enjoyed smelling the leaves that Yoav knew where to find.
Thank you for a great experience. I additionally enjoyed your Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary experience as well with a Uni group. Keep up the great work. Love the experiences you provide.
