David Highly Recommended 

We honestly couldn't wish for a more passionate, attentive and vigilant tour guide. David made each Game Drive so interesting as he showered us with his wealth of knowledge about all the birds, animals and plants. I learned so much!

Perfect

We saw 4 of the big five (lions, elephants, rhinos and buffalo's), and even if the weather was against us, we enjoyed our full day safari a lot! Our guide Ngcebo was kind, funny and he was full of knowledge: he helped us to understand the animals' living habits, to identify all the beautiful birds we saw... And both breakfast and lunch were very good. Everything was perfect!
