Elize, I just wanted to thank you for another wonderful holiday. I can assure you it just keeps getting better ! The boys are very grumpy and are already saying "I miss Shumbalala". Please thank Hans, Chris, Jacque, Raymondo and everyone else for making it again such a special time. Last night was quite an experience and the highlight of the trip. It really is a special place. Thank you from all of us, God bless and I hope we see you next year.
