Clean, comfortable ride

Minivan was on time and the driver was very friendly. We made a nice stop halfway through the journey and saw some crocodiles in the river! The driver pointed out interesting things as we travelled along too. The driving here scares me a little bit as everyone drives so close together, but that just seems to be how it is! The van had working seatbelts, which was a big plus too.
