It was a very enjoyable experience. One suggestion is around the starting times of the morning drives. I understand that they move forward in 30 minute increments as sunrise comes earlier, but in my experience, you are still not early enough. And if you happen to visit at a time just before it changes, you are really quite late arriving to the bush. Last week we should have left no later than 5:30, if not earlier.
