    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.

    Our tour guide Gerhard Pretorius gave us lots of interesting information about the areas we travelled through. He was very carefully planning our days, arranging restaurant visits, tour activities and re-confirming accommodation. He kept everyone well informed about the schedule. Our group was getting along very well with each other so all of us had dinner together with the tour guide every night. The restaurants proposed by the tour guide were all excellent and very special. Most likely, someone travelling individually on the Garden Route would not find these nice places. Since this was a combination of Garden Route and Wine Tour, we changed bus and tour guide in Stellenbosch. Our new tour guide Moudi and the new group were also very pleasant and again we all had a good time having dinner together. All the activities were exactly as advertised and we enjoyed them very much.

Fabulous 5 day garden state tour trip, Isaac our guide was wonderful, open, kind and caring, I learnt so much about South Africa from him, nothing was too much trouble and he became more than a guide, he is now a valued friend. Fabulous scenery, I stayed in wonderful accommodation as was in the hotels/guest houses. The kayaking was fabulous, long journeys on the road however lots of stops and lots to see making each trip great, we had lots of chats and lots of laughs. A trip that I will never forget.

We had a great full day tour with our guide Joel. From the pick-up in our accommodation to lunch (delicious South African "braai") everything was organized very well. Joel knew all the tricks on how to best find the animals and we saw lots of elephants, kudus, zebras, buffalo, turtles and even a few lions. Of course, it's always a matter of luck with the animals, but Joel just got everything out for us. Thanks for that!

direct pick up from Cruise Terminal and 30 mins transfer to National Park, change of car, we used Jeeps for the park, first encounter with Zebras after a few minutes followed by Elephants and a lot of other animals, nice coffebreak with great views, very good explanations from our guide and a very good BBQ in the bush with excellent food. Great safari experience

If you want to see lots of elephants, Addo is your place. We saw lots of other wild animals too. Our driver was difficult to hear (open jeep) but whenever we said 'stop' to look closer or shoot pictures, he stopped. He was also able to spot lions which we had no way of spotting, as they were far away.

It was an amazing once in a life time experience. The group was so lovely and we have had fun from the first day. Our Tourguide Christine has made the tour something special. Thanks
