Amazing trip, I'll come again!

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!

Informative, comfortable & sensitive to our needs.

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.

Sehr empfehlenswerte Tour für jemanden der Lust auf Safaris hat.

Guide war sehr pünktlich am Hotel zur Abholung und auch sonst sehr zuvorkommend, Bedürfnisse und Wünsche der Gruppe wurden berücksichtigt. Die Safaris waren sehr beeindruckend Bedenken muss man die vielen Kilometer und die doch lange Zeit die man im Bus verbringt, jedoch ist es dies auf alle Fälle wert!!!
