          Derwyn-CapeTown
          Hi, We stay in Cape Town and were considering taking a few night stay in the Okavango Delta. I came across some attractive deals / offers from you via Trip Advisor. I would like to know if you can tailor a package for us that would include some game viewing and transfer to/from Maun airport (We would fly in to Maun from CT direct)? I am concerned much of the pricing is in USD and aimed at European/US wage earners!! Perhaps you can assist? We would be looking at a 4-5 nights stay and would like to return fully relaxed with a full ‘Okavango Experience’ and one we would want to recommend and repeat. Regards, Derwyn & Dee
