I chose Leadwood Expeditions based on reviews and was not disappointed. From start to finish, the company provided everything we asked for and more. Showed up on time in a Landcruiser. Vehicle was in great condition and even had outlets. Stephen, our driver/guide, was wonderful, knowledgeable, and full of answers to all our many, many questions. Including those from our 12 and 15 years old daughters.
