    No interaction at all with the tour guide until about 20 minutes from the end but to be fair that was him spotting a leopard in a tree about 100m away. There wasn't lunch included water included as advertised. The driver was safe etc but we were unlucky not to see any elephants. We did see 2 leopards from distance though.
