Tour Reviews

Review by Gertrud K:

Review by Sirry (sourced from operator):

We have been around and travel 5-6 times a year but nothing compares to this trip. Every day was an adventure filled with different activities, places, people and scenery. We were never in danger and felt safe throughout the whole trip. Our guide Jesse was amazing and made our trip even more enjoyable. He was always there to help if needed and his knowledge on the animals and surroundings was enormous, he simply had answers to all our questions and we learned so much from him. His cooking skills were great, food was delicious! And the important part; his driving was really good, we never felt unsafe on the road. The most important part however was that he was extremely fun and brought the group together.

People where so friendly and scenery was breath-taking. We even saw the Big Five (we spotted two leopards!!) on our trip among African Wild dogs and Pangolin which I have heard is really rare so we were extremely lucky. Our favourite part was definitely on the Zambezi river where we canoed with hippos and camped on islands with wild elephants, it felt like a dream!
We completely fell in love with Africa after this trip and we miss it every day! The desire to go back will probably never go away so we will have to keep coming back to Africa and explore more of this wonderful continent! When we do so we will definitely book with you guys. We have already and will continue to recommend your company to our friends and families.

Review by Linda (sourced from operator):

This tour was way better than my expectations. It was a real adventure and I have traveled a lot before this trip, but I must say that this trip was my favorite of them all. Africa gave me a very special feeling. I will visit Africa again for sure in the future.

Review by Evelyn (sourced from operator):

The combination between nature and the rest was perfect. Cool group and a very good guide. Perfect holidays.

Review by Carrie Ward (sourced from operator):

Wyatt is an excellent guide, very knowledgeable with fauna and flora. The meals he cooked for us were delicious. He made an effort to see we enjoyed some of SA specialities (Baboti and Braai). I will recommend this tour to friends and family.

Review by Emile Okkenhaug (sourced from operator):

This tour exceeded all my expectations and our guide just made it a memory for a lifetime!!.

Review by Julia Sundt (sourced from operator):
