PLEASE SELECT YOUR SIZE FROM THE DROP DOWN MENU BEFORE ADDING THE MASKS TO YOUR CART OTHERWISE YOU WILL RECEIVE THE SMALLER SIZE!
We shopped in person a few years ago during a safari. The selection is great, and the staff was very friendly & helpful. Since Zambia is a long way away from Texas, our recent purchases have been via the website. We just received an order of masks. Each pack of 3 came masks in a nice little handmade bag and only took a few weeks to arrive. They fit great and my wife gets lots of compliments. Thanks!
They were well constructed but much too small for me. I gifted them to a woman who is much smaller and she could use them. I understood that I specifically ordered a large size.
