Had to borrow a phone so I could be picked up as requested when I made booking. Once at Emerald, took about 20-30 minutes to find the booking made with and fully paid for 2 days prior with SafariNow. Requested upgrade - done great, Bed Comfortable. Requested wakeup call for 5:30 next day. No Call!. Managed to wake up before 6 for transfer back to Airport (reqested previous evening). Reception closed at 6:00am. Got very worried. Someone strolled in just on 6 am to take us to airport.
