We had the most amazing two weeks with Oumar and driver Bapi (request Bapi! Best driver ever!) Oumar planned everything amazingly, and accommodated our every off-the-wall request. It was a wonderful 12 days; he even had art packed and shipped to the states for us! The itinerary was well-planned, but flexible enough to get us to two extra countries for the crazy country collectors in our group. We've traveled extensively and have to say, this was one of our favorite trips.
