Is the caliber of the experience and areas allowed as good when using guide/naturalist from the Park vs from your specific safari camp?
We have (what I consider) unusual circumstances. We have requested using the naturalist from our camp (at additional cost) and are being told that we have to pay in full over 5 months in advance. Safari will then be based on availability (no guarantee) but is non-refundable.
We have done 5 safari camps throughout Africa and have never heard of a policy like this. Has anyone had a similar situation to this? (At this point we are seriously considering using park naturalists but done want a less desirable experience)
