Probably the most powerful and touching part of the whole African trip. The things which guys went through are sad and shocking. You can visit the places where you won't defeinitely go alone. I felt completely safe with the guys as they know the place well and the place knows them well too. Some of these 8 guys joined us during the tour at different points. I regretted that you generally don't have much time to talk to all of them and hear all the stories. It's all about walking, watching, listening and talking, 3-4 hours just flew by really quickly. I loved the sort of happy end story with this start-up and I want to follow them afterwards, the initiatives that they want to bring to the slums of their origin are very touching. My honest respect, it was very interesting and life-changing experience

I did not expect much in this park at the gate of the city. Yet I was pleasantly surprised by the white rhino experience seen very close and by two faiths. Hunting lions etc… our driver guide was very attentive and attentive to our desires. One of the people had difficulty with his knee and our guide helped us and was still thinking about how to put the vehicle to help us down or up. I recommend !!

I had an enjoyable experience as I lucked out with a personal tour (no one else came). The staff were very receptive and responsive to my queries. Being picked-up and dropped off at my residence was very appreciated. My guide was knowledgeable in providing me context about the park and driving to find the animals. He was also very patient and made sure I was comfortable throughout the tour.

Great service, both the pickup-return to my place, and the guide through the park! Highly recommended.

Very professional and supremely knowledgeable. I had a great time at NNP.
