Has anyone been on the OAT Ultimate Africa trip?

If anyone has been on this trip, how was it and what time of year did you go and how was the wildlife viewing?
Thanks

Tiger Paw - Do an OAT search here. We've discussed this a bit, but not too many people on this board have taken the trip. I'm still considering it for next year, just weighing out the options and waiting to see if a friend is going to join me. (I think from the feedback I got when I asked about this tour, if you like tours, it seems to be a pretty decent one and a good value.) Good luck!

cooncat---Thanks, I did the OAT search. Sounds mostly positive. I also am just checking options for a trip in 2006.
Any other OAT opinions?
If there are 16 people on the tour,how many are in each vehicle on safaris?
Thanks for any information.

The only negative posts I've come across had to do with overbooking issues. Here are links to those comments for whatever it's worth -

It seems that both were for trips to South America, so I don't know how much it's an issue on their Africa trips. They could've also been isolated cases but I just thought it was something to be aware of.

People who have gone on their trips seem to post overwhelmingly positive feedback.
