Full day Safari at Hluhluwe-Imfolozi We have been very well take care of by David our guide throughout the day. The park was very nice and gave us the opportunity to see many animals. David gave us very interesting comments on the animals which we didn't get at Kruger park. Overall, we were very happy with David who kept the day very rich in sightings...
Theo-tastic We booked a full day drive and had the pleasure of Theo as our guide. He made our day with his personality and great eye for animals. He was also an excellent cook! We entered the park and within minutes we had up close shots of rhino followed by elephants zebra giraffe and many more.
Unique experience and brilliant service My 2 friends and I traveled to St Lucia for a 24h safari experience. We did the night safari with Timbo, the 5am safari with Jacques and also the boat trip. All 3 trips were great, but the highlight is probably the 5am trip to the iSimangaliso game reserve with Jacques. Jacques was a very good guide, with great knowledge about the reserve and the animals. We saw giraffes, elephants, impalas, a cheetah, white and black rhinos, and also lions eating their kill. Jacques' passion and enthusiasm showed during the trip was contagious and contributed to the feeling of an unique experience, also created, at least for me, a slight career envy. What a great job where the lions and elephants share the office with you 🙂 We also very much appreciated the care shown towards us, it was probably one of the coldest days in a long while (as we were told), the provided blankets and tea/coffee was very welcome. once again, thank you!
