"I have traveled with Valentine Cumpo as my guide from Botswana to Zambia, Zimbabwe and Namibia. I had the trip of a lifetime. Valentine has showed me beautiful places. He is very easy going, very informed and knowledgeable. His first language is English, this makes communication so much easier. My next trip to Africa will for sure be with valentine again."
