It was a beautiful trip for two and a half hours between the green mountains and animals like the giraffe and the zebra and in the end we passed on snakes and crocodiles. You will enjoy the tour and thank you

Valley of 1000 Hills is worth a drive just for the beauty of it. We often take our landy down into the valley and have a cold drink and bag of crisps at Mfula Store
