Wonderful

The tours are well organised and the guides are very friendly and definitely know exactly what they are talking about. Tember, Neville, Theo and John (our guides for the four days we were here) are incredible guides! All four are really friendly and are happy to explain anything you want as many times as necessary. We learned lots about the different wildlife and landscapes from their knowledge about the place.
