It was a fantastic trip. Our guide Mawanda was an extremely competent guide, very precise and a very friendly and knowledgeable person. Mawanda accompanied us through all 5 days with safe driving, good stories about the places we visited. The organization of the trip itself was also top class. We got to see The Big five both on land and in the sea. We owe Mawanda a big thank you. Ole-David & Benedicte

The four of us had an amazing tour with Devon! He did an amazing job and took all effort to satisfy our hopes. He was very flexible and we could stop even in between regular stops to shop or see things we wanted to. He is a great driver, we felt very safe! The backpacker single accommodations were way, way better than expected. Beside Jeffrey's Bay, were I was a little disappointed... I enjoyed the trip very much and definitely recommend it!

Thoroughly enjoyable. Only the 2 of us on this tour. Accomodation was very good at every stop - we opted for the guest houses. The food was delicious, & the 120 Rand allowance was enough. Addo was everything we'd hoped for, & more. Probably the highlight was the Garden Route Game Park - wonderful overnight accomodation. Two game drives, evening, & early morning - ticked all the boxes. We would have liked longer there. Our guide Devon, was polite, extremely helpful, & a good & safe driver. Extremely hard-working. He was very informative on the flora, fauna & South African culture.
