Just an update. Spoke to Craig, and like SanDiego1K, he sent me on to Chris as my safari is both self-drive and Namibia focused so he thought Chris would be a better fit. Already talked to Chris and starting to work with him. Btw, really enjoying Chris, but also wouldn't hesitate to work with Craig in the future. Just his willingness to admit that his focus isn't the best for what I was looking for and that he personally made introductions and put me in touch with someone else was a fantastic example of going above and beyond.

Thanks all!

Chris was born and raised in Namibia and has extensive knowledge of the safari industry there. He is also very knowledgeable about many of the African safari destinations.
