I was disappointed, as we purchased the VIP Desert Safari, and according to the voucher, we were to be picked up from our home and dropped at our home, in a private 4x4, however this did not happen. We had made arrangements to go on 31 December, however the company was unwilling to pick us up, because of traffic and they had no drivers, so we asked about 1 Jan, and the same reply, so we settled on 2 Jan as the date. However there was still a debate on meeting the driver, rather than being picked up at our home, rather we had to drive to meet the driver, and then rather than a private 4 x 4, we were driven to a hotel to pick up another family. So the details of the voucher was not honored. We did not have VIP seats at the dinner, we did not have private 4 x 4 pickup and drop off at our home. We have unhappy with the whole of the situation from the start.
