|Full Day Open Vehicle Safari & Panorama Tour ex Nelspruit - Thursday, December 14, 2017|
20 & 21 November 2017
We are now back in London from our time in South Africa, and we are happy to say that the tours you helped organise made our time in Nelspruit the most rewarding and enjoyable of our time in South Africa.
We were particularly pleased with our tours guides, who not only provided explanations and facts about the various animals and places we were actually seeing, but also about the local history and/or points of interest and surroundings we would see on the way from back to our hotel. All in all it was amazing value for money, and we couldn’t be happier.
I will be certain to recommend your services to friends and colleagues should they be travelling to South Africa!

The safari was excellent. I am glad I was able to spend a night in the park. It is clearly worth much more time than that.
Best possible feedback for Dave the guide. He was personable and knowledgeable and he was able to show us a lot of things.
I actually enjoyed having the cool, overcast, and even some rain as I have not experienced that in a park before. It really helped with the colours for photographing birds.
Thanks for your help in arranging this all rather last minute.
|2Day/1Night ex Maputo - 25 & 26 November 2017 - Thursday, December 14, 2017|
Our safari was a great succes. We are very happy about the service that you provided. We are especially happy about Dave (our guide) en the safari vehicle that is very comfortable and allows you to see the most possible. Also the accomodation is complete and clean.
The rest of the services were all very good and we had a great time at the park, thank you!
|Full Day Open Vehicle Safari ex Malelane-October 2017 - Thursday, November 23, 2017|
Thank you for organizing our safari, it was fantastic!
I have recommended the same to friends of ours, who are visiting in November and will forward your email address to them.
|Maputo/Kruger/Panorama ex Marloth Park-November 2017 - Thursday, November 23, 2017|
Good Morning Felicity,
We have just returned to Scotland after our vacation.
Thank you for organising the trips, and we would like to give you our thoughts.
Trip to Malputo
Solomon was a very good guide and managed the border crossings with ease what an experience. Malputo was interesting.
We were amazed at the volume of traffic and it's importance to SA, but with it all explained to us by Solomon it made sense.
Dave collected us at the designated time. Very knowledgeable about all the animals and birds in the park. We had expressed an interest in seeing the Rhino and had hoped for some sightings. With the day being exceptionally hot, by midday the animals had retreated into the bush due to the heat. We got a feel for what to do and returned ourselves for another excellent day in Kruger.
Our guide, Sarel, was knowledgeable about SA and was interested in the UK and the comparisons which made interesting discussions on the journey.
Although the weather was against us as it was misty and damp especially as we climbed up into the area above White River. Interesting agricultural and forestry operations in the area and this was explained.
The visit to the pot holes, the canyon, the roundals and the Mac Mac falls were the only places we managed as God's Window was shrouded in mist and not worth going to. The highlight was lunch at a SA outdoor restaurant eating local food cooked in the traditional way - excellent.
|3Day/2Night Kruger Open Vehicle Safari ex JHB-October 2017 - Thursday, November 23, 2017|
Our 3Day/2Night Safari was perfect, our experience was perfect and the guiden, Dian, he was perfect.
Thank you so much for organizing our Kruger adventure.

I preached on Sunday evening using the Bible text of Luke 10 - Meeting new finding "people of peace", then I mentioned you. You have no Idea how much you bkessed our trip by all means. I believe the time we stayed with you was the rare moment we were not cheated. We were all pleased with your work, attention, love and care. As I said to my church: Felicity is the kind of person we should have one copy in all kind of public services, attending people, doing the work fully. You made our trip to South África and we all will remember that forever. Thanks again.

|Maputo City Tour ex Malelane - September 2017 - Wednesday, November 22, 2017|
The trip was great! We enjoyed it a lot, Solomon was a great guide and we enjoyed his company very much; his knowledge of Maputo and the recent history and culture of Mozambique made the trip that more enjoyable!
|Full Day Open Vehicle Safari ex Maputo-Solo Traveller-Sep 2017 - Wednesday, November 22, 2017|
The safari was perfect - we saw everything except cheetahs which I wasn't expecting to see anyway! We saw all of the big 5 in one day, and a black rhino! The guides were really good, and the company you used, was good with comfortable vehicles.
You were right to recommend 1.5 days instead of 2, although I must admit I was like a little kid for the first few hours of the first day, so excited for my first safari haha. I was really impressed with everything.
I was really very grateful for the time you spent on the phone with me, it was reassuring and helpful, just to hear that someone in the industry seems to have genuine concern/support for solo travellers, as it can get very expensive otherwise! Your advice was very well received and I would have no hesitation recommending your company to anyone. I have no idea if I am to be sent with work to this part of the world again, but we often have people from our department flying over to Mozambique, so I will tell them to make sure to check your safaris out (and to get a multiple entry visa - the buses would not have been very favourable to me if I only had a single entry visa!)
Genuinely though, thank you for organising this fantastic tour. I'm still buzzing from the safari and hope I will be back again one day to do more!
All the very best,

Excellent 2 night private safari Kruger South Safaris - guided by Marc
My cousin and I enjoyed a fabulous 2 night safari in Kruger for our 50th birthdays. We were very fortunate to have Marc as our guide. He was extremely knowledgeable, patient and obliging. I've been on a number of day tours before, but this was something very special. The wildlife sightings were incredible - a leopard in a tree metres away with dinner, masses on lions lazing on the river sandbank, mothers nursing their cubs, lions mating, wild dogs twice, cheetahs too stuffed to twitch whilst zebras ambled past, herds of elephants etc etc. We are Australian and love our birds, so the fact that Marc was a qualified bird guide was an unexpected bonus. Having written about our fabulous safari, I just want to caution people that the animal sightings can't be scheduled no matter how much you want to see them. Often they aren't in clear sight lines and don't perform on demand. We were just really lucky and Marc had great knowledge of the park so had lots of options. Doing the safari by ourselves allowed that flexibility to wait patiently for things to happen and it nearly always paid off. I would definitely recommend South Kruger Safaris - for matching our request so well with our actual experience,and Marc for delivering such a great tour. Cheers, Donna & Lynette

We had a lovely day. For me it was a trip down memory lane.
Solomon was a delightful guide, accommodating our every whim.
So thank you!
|Full Day Open Vehicle Safari ex Nelspruit 20/07 - Monday, August 21, 2017|

Thanks a lot for a great tour... Everything went well. Great tours and great guides.
|3Day/2Night Safari ex Nelspruit 02/08/17 - Monday, August 21, 2017|
I spoke with my daughter who was excited that they saw "all 5!" but she said that by far the best thing about the safari was the driver. He was knowledgeable, funny, entertaining - as you said, he clearly loves his job. I did post on your Facebook site.
|Full Day Open Vehicle Safari ex Nelspruit 20/08 - Monday, August 21, 2017|
I've just returned from my tour. I really enjoyed it. I've seen 3 of the big five (Buffalo, elephant and leopard) & loads of antelopes.
Mark was very professional and friendly and so were his lovely parents.
Thank you! I'm looking forward to booking again with you.
|Full Day Open Vehicle Safari ex Marloth Park 12/07/17 - Monday, August 21, 2017|
The safari was great, thank you! Solly was a great guide and we got some really good photos of 4 out of the 5 Big Five, as well as some incredible bird shots! I'll definitely recommend you guys to all my friends in the USA and UK, I don't think the Mexicans travel much! 😁
Thanks for booking us a memory of a lifetime!
|Full Day Open Vehicle Safari ex Nelspruit 12/08/17 - Monday, August 21, 2017|
All was perfect!!! Mark is really Nice. He gaveus a lot of information. We were Lucky and helped by him for seeing: Cheetas léopard anf hyena playing with puppies. (And a lot of others)

|2Day/1Night Kruger Open Vehicle Safari ex Maputo March 2017 - Wednesday, April 19, 2017|
We enjoyed our trip to the Kruger Park.
The Guide helped a lot and we were able to spend to wonderful days with lots of animals.
Thanks for the wonderful Trip!
Thank you so much for your patience while organizing it :-) Best wishes from Germany
|3Day/2Night Kruger Open Vehicle Safari ex Maputo April 2017 - Wednesday, April 19, 2017|
We had an absolute whale of a time on safari!!!!! We can't wait to come back, and we're trying to persuade Ed's sister to visit KNP during her honeymoon late next year. We will definitely recommend that she contact you.
Dave was a fantastic guide, and I'm glad I can take this opportunity to give you some positive feedback. Within minutes of meeting he put us completely at ease, gave us plenty of information (but not too much) and, importantly, explained the procedures so that we had exactly the right expectations. He was a real gentleman (unlike my Ed!) and carried bags, poured wine, washed mugs, shared his binoculars and camera, etc, etc. His knowledge and experience were genuinely the best part of our whole safari experience.
Thank you for organising such a wonderful experience for us. Next time we're planning a trip in Africa, you'll be the first person I contact. Also, if I hear of anyone who's thinking of going on safari, I will recommend that they reach out to you.
Very best wishes,
|2Day/1Night Safari ex Maputo - Monday, March 13, 2017|
Everything went smoothly and it was a great experience. Dave was a great guide and companion, we just missed the leopards and cheetahs and we all had a great time.
Thank you for organizing things so well!

25 February 2017
The Maputo Day Trip went extremely well. Our guide, Winston was very friendly and informative and we felt very safe driving with him. We really appreciated the fact that he spoke both Portuguese and Shangaan. We don't know what could have become, had he not spoken the languages.
All in all, it was a great experience. Thank you once more for the efficient service, you guys are really trying !!!!
We wish you nothing but the very best in your business endeavors...

|3Day/2Night Safari ex Maputo - Monday, March 13, 2017|
just wanted to say thanks for the well organization for recent days spent in kruger! Since the moment they pickup us in maputo and during the safaris with the guide with all explanations and being so kind and patient. Nice accomodation as well as good breakfast and dinner.
we showed 4 of the 5 big, we only missed leopard! Next time! ;-))

Wow, wow, wow!!! Our tour guide's name was Rufus, friendly, down to earth, on time, hands on, you mention the rest. The truth of the matter is I had fun with capital F. Not only did I enjoy every minute of it but I enjoyed every second of it. My boyfriend was so impressed with your service.
Rufus gave us an outstanding service and I must say you were always of assistance with the bookings as well.
I wouldn't have chosen any other company for our Safari Kruger tour, given a chance I would do it with you over and over again.
Everything was on point. You outdid my expectations.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Kind and warm regards

Thanks for a great tour of the Panorama Route. (19th and 20th December). Our very professional guide....Johan Viljoen picked us up on time from our guesthouse in Nelspruit and we immediately developed a great relationship which made for a memorable day. Johan's local knowledge was invaluable and we were highly appreciative of this. We managed to get to all the major sites along the route and thoroughly enjoyed this experience. We enjoyed Johan's company and would most definitely recommend him as an ideal tour guide. Thank you for a great experience. Daniel and Jenny Katzen - Melbourne

We had the feeling that he does his job with passion and knows a lot about the kruger

Our Kruger safari was actually one of the highlights of our whole 2 weeks trip! We liked our guide very much. With him we witnessed some amazing moments at the park: Lions mating, elephants in the middle of the road, and dozens of elephants bathing together! About the organization it was quite good: punctuality and competence of the collaborators. My daughter will share some of her photos in your facebook page!
I wish you all the best for 2015 too,
My best regards,

Hi Denise, thank you for the mail and for your service.
I had a great time with the tour at the Kruger park. I’m not going to forget what I saw. The fifth guest was a nice acquaintance and we spent good time together. I hope to be back with my family and spot a lion or two..
|Audrey Bendayan - Sunday, June 08, 2014|
Overall, our stay was spot on what we hoped for: good hotel, nice room, excellent guide, car not too crowded, organisation perfect for transfer, pick ups and so on.
Your recommandation and advice previous to our departure were also very helpful
We also appreciated highly your coordination with British Airways for our luggage - you did that litlle bit extra to help us and it was greatly appreciated.
Hans and Dave were really nice to us.
The only thing that we would change is the packed breakfast... it would have been nice for it to be not exactly the same every day... but that's being pecky, really... ;-)
Thanks for everything. We had a GREAT time thanks to you.
Audrey et Dominique.
|Xabier Mendaza - Tuesday, June 03, 2014|
Hi Denise, sorry I hadn't write yet but Im still in Tanzania. I was planning to tell you how it went.
The tour was fantastic (even we didn't see lions :( ), but the managers and guides were really helpful and supportive. I even booked another Night tour for Saturday (my colleague didn't).
Thank you so much for everything! I will definitely recommend your company whenever someone wants to go to Kruger!
|David Hernandez - Saturday, May 31, 2014|
Everything went just perfect with the safari tour. It was a unique experience for us and we really enjoyed it. Our guide Mario was really good and the service that he provided during the tour was outstanding. He was very attentive with us all the time and he is a very kind person. The dinner that he prepared for us on the camp night in Kruger was excellent, a very good idea and much more authentic than the camp restaurant, we appreciated that.
We have no negative feedback, we were completely satisfied with the services. So may be we will come back in the future.
|Mark Kendal - Thursday, May 01, 2014|
Thanks for your emails and apologies for the delay in replying.
The safari was fantastic and greatly exceeded my expectations. Felicity was a brilliant guide and great company. Her passion for and knowledge of the wildlife was evident throughout. I had a sense that she really took pride in giving us the best possible experience. Felicity's friend Esther was also great company. They were both great at spotting animals large and small. I was amazed at how much we saw in a short time.
Felicity and Esther made it a very special time for me. Please do tell them how much I appreciated and enjoyed my time on safari with them. It was also lovely to get to know them better over a wonderful barbecue at camp.
Thanks also to you of course for organising the safari so well for us at such short notice.
I will recommend you to anyone thinking of going on a safari. And I'll be back myself. Meanwhile, I will like your facebook page and post some pics.
All the best to you, Felicity and Esther.
|Ginger Dunn - Thursday, April 24, 2014|
Thank you so much, both Mozambique with Sully? and Swaziland day trip with Nick were wonderful. I really enjoyed them and was glad I got a better price for having other guests join. I think Moz with it's expensive Visa would not be something I would recommend but Swazi was so beautiful and I would indeed recommend that trip.
Thank you again for your help and I will recommend your services to others.
All the best, Ginger
|Peter Gibb - Monday, March 17, 2014|
Yes we really enjoyed the safari, thank you. The guide was very knowledgeable and managed to get us some great close ups of elephants and lots of other animals. It was an excellent day, despite the bad weather!

A very happy and prosperous New Year to you as well.
We had a wonderful Safari tour and was met with the same great service as last time. It lived up to all my expectations and we could not have been more satisfied with it - the hotel is wonderful, the guides are highly qualified and we were extremely lucky and saw all the big five during our stay - much more than we could possibly have expected.
Truth been told, I was meaning to write you to thank you - but then my vacation was done, and I am back to the hectic office! Sorry for this, because I am very pleased after this stay and we even talked about that we should send you a big thank you.
|Bjørn Askholm - Wednesday, December 18, 2013|
We had a very good safari, thanks! Uta was VERY good! Accommodation was just fine. The bushwalk rangers were not very entusiastisk, though. There was no tracking, and we passed so many things, they could have stopped and explained. They had a standard route and just walked around...
Over all we had a brilliant tour! You hit our wishes spot on! Once again thanks for your always prompt answer.
Kind Regards Anders, Marie and Bjørn
|Erez Diamant - Friday, December 13, 2013|

Sorry Denise for writing so late, but i forgot it sorry!!
Yes we had a very great enjoyable experience Krüger Safari tour!! We had luck about the weather, the only bad thing was that we didn’t see the BIG 5 but that dosen´t matter because we have been in the wildlife and not in a Zoo…….
Thanks for that great organization and we hope that we can return to South Afrika anytime!!
We wish you and your family a merry christmas and a happy and healthy new year

|Linda Clary - Wednesday, November 13, 2013|
I was just thinking this morning that I needed to write to you. I actually bought a thank you card and stamps in SA and never got a note written!
The Kruger, Swaziland, return from Maputo, and transports to the lodge and to Nelspruit were the best organized and most reliable parts of my trip! I wish I had found your website before I had planned the other parts of my journey. I particularly appreciated your keeping in touch with me that Friday night I had to travel from Llongwe to Blantyre and the next night I could not get from Jo'berg airport to Nelspruit. It was wonderful to know there was someone I could call if things got even worse! I will write to Leonie and Johan also to thank them for a great stay in Kruger, a great night safari, and superb transfers. Your organizational skills, attention to details, and follow-up is a model for anyone in the travel industry! I don't do Facebook, but I will be writing you up on Trip Advisor. I cannot thank you enough for all your help, patience, excellent arrangements, checking on me, and follow- through. I sincerely mean it when I say you are the #1 travel agent/agency/website in my trips to all 7 continents and about 115 countries! There were a few aggravations at the end of my trip, but none involved your arrangements. I got someone else's bag upon arrival in Antanarivera, it took about 2 hours to get to and from the 17 km from the airport into the city (elections were looming), I got sick, and my camera was snatched out of both of my hands as I tried to take a picture about 6 inches outside the car where I was sitting in traffic! (The police say that they have found the camera card if I come up with the reward, so hopefully I will get my pictures.) The night before I was to fly back to Jo'berg, Delta e-mailed me that my flight had been cancelled, and I needed to leave Jo'burg on Oct. 30, instead of 31. I could not leave Madagascar until 3:30 and had to take the train into Stanton to pick up a stored bag. I did not make the flight, but Delta put me up and fed me, and I left on the flight that I originally booked. I have yet to figure out all of that! I came home still a little sick, but after two doctor's appointments on Monday and Wednesday of last week, hospital tests, and some medicine for a terrible cough, I am much better. At least, I was well enough to decorate, get the bakery to do the right groom's cake, do the final arrangements with the restaurant, and host my son's wedding rehearsal party last Friday night. It went well, as did the wedding on Saturday, so that was a relief! I hope you are having a good spring, lots of bookings even during the rainy season, and many upcoming holiday guests to please. Let me know if I can ever give you a reference, or feel free to give my name and e-mail to anyone.
Your very pleased client,

We just returned from our trip to the Kruger Park. Everything worked out very well.
The pick up was perfectly organised ( even from our "unusual" accomodation) and the Pestana has wonderful terrace with an amazing view. The game drives were also impressive. Especially the night drive was wonderful. Also the balance between game drives and relaxing at the pool or on the terrace was just right. Thanks a lot for the uncomplicated booking procedure even on our short term request.
|Simone van Ruijven - Monday, November 04, 2013|
We had a great time with ivan! We could not wish better. He took good care of us and we've seen the big 5 and many more.
When we're back, we'll post on your facebook!

Apologies for the delay in responding to your email.
Yes we had a wonderful Kruger Safari experience! The night Safari was great – saw a big pack of lions and lots of Rhino’s! The accommodation was lovely and very comfortable and we also enjoyed the day Safari. It was the perfect experience for my friends who had not been on Safari before! They loved every minute of it!
Thanks again for your help and service. It was prompt, professional and provided for a great experience! I’ll be in touch should I need to arrange something similar again.
|Barb & Julie Penner - Tuesday, October 29, 2013|
Yes, we had a great time, both at the canyon and at the safari.
Thanks for the arrangement! Barb and Julie
|Bjørn Askholm - Friday, October 18, 2013|
We had a great time all the way through! It was an amazing coincidence that Nick was going the same way as us at the same time! It was easy end entertaining getting to the lodge, and we had great dinner in the reserve, before going to sleep. Next day we had a really good full day safari, and we particularly appreciated Dylan Fosse, our guide on that trip. Please let him know, and don't hesitate to use him any other time. There was some trouble getting dinner that evening, but it worked out just fine as well. The bush walk was a very different experience. You are much more "in the nature" and use all your senses. Off course we didn't see as much, but we really enjoyed it! Getting to Swazi was no problem. Nick took us there right on time! We have no complaints. Nick lodge was just fine. Off course staying in the park would have been even greater, but given the situation it was a really good alternative, as animals was also walking on the street i the reserve, and it was quite close to the gate anyways!

Please excuse me for not having wrote you before, but I'm in Malawi and I haven't had much time. The trip was excellent and Nick was a magnificent host. I'll shall pass trough you facebook page as soon as I got time. Tank you very much for organizing this wonderful trip and I surly will write to you next time I'm around
|Gerald Prior - Monday, October 14, 2013|
Again a big thank you for the perfect day I was able to experience today. Johann has put me on a full day tour with the other people from Germany and a german speaking driver. And, in the evening I could enjoy the Sunset Tour.
Great experience - perfectly organised!
|Joana Rodrigues - Tuesday, October 01, 2013|
Everything was wonderful, the Safari and all the team. I will recommend your services to my friends and in the future I hope to do a longer Safari.
Thank you for your help.
|Cátia Marques - Friday, September 20, 2013|
Thanks for reaching out. We had a very good experience, it was all very organised and our guide was super knowledgeable. We saw many animals!
It was great to have the possibility to have the door to door transportation, being picked up in Maputo and then brought back.
Thanks so much for organising, we had a great experience!
|Alexa Smye - Wednesday, September 18, 2013|
I had a really good time at Kruger and have nothing but good things to say!
Thanks for your help!
|Kathy O' Boyle - Wednesday, August 07, 2013|
We were extremely satisfied with the services received. All the guides we had contact with were excellent - knowledgeable, professional and very pleasant. The quality of all the tours was high; even the drives to and from Maputo were very interesting because of the landscape and the conversations with our driver Jose. The hotel was lovely. In fact, we liked the Pestana Kruger so much that we stayed on an extra day. We also upgraded our room when we were there so that we had a balcony overlooking the crocodile river.
Thank you for all your assistance in arranging the tour.
Best wishes and kind regards,
|Jack Ruitenbeek - Wednesday, August 07, 2013|
Both John and I had an excellent trip, and I also very much appreciate your flexibility with the 'on-again/off-again' nature of Jim's participation ... he's well recovered now from his illness but - based on our rave reviews - will definitely try for some other date when he is in Maputo again.
|Scott White - Tuesday, July 02, 2013|
Everything was wonderful. Transfers, tent, food, staff, safaris... all amazing! We especially enjoyed the morning walk. Excited and scared coming face to face with two herds of elephants. Not for everyone though.
Once again, thanks for everything.
|Lisette Andreyko-Peerlings - Monday, June 03, 2013|
Thanks for checking in Denise, it was a fantastic experience! We both wished we whad been able to stay one day longer, both at the park and at the inn. Jannie was fantastic, did he tell you we were able to follow a cheetah on the road for about 10 minutes? Awesome! The inn people were fantastic as well.
All the best, Lisette
|Tracy Moen - Monday, April 29, 2013|
We were more than pleased with all the arrangements. Jannie was incredible. It was an absolute pleasure to learn about the animals from him. We were in constant amazement from the moment we entered into the Kruger gate. Thank you!
|Babu Ramabadran - Wednesday, April 17, 2013|
Had a fantastic time in Kruger
Ivin was really good
Thanks a lot for the awesome Safari
|Oliver Porter - Monday, April 15, 2013|
Morning Denise. Yes yesterday was fantastic. I think we were very fortunate to see everything we did. All three of us would like to say thanks and let you know Jessica Ney is really top class. Not a question asked was left unanswered. Her knowledge and patience with us was what every guide should aspire to. We felt safe the whole trip and as a pilot I have to compliment her eyesight. She spotted things that we missed at every turn. Her passion for the job was evident which made it all the more enjoyable for us. Thanks again for a wonderful experience. Regards, Olly.
|Jens Petersen - Monday, March 25, 2013|
it has been very hectic since we returned from Saouth Africa last Sunday. I just need a little time to acclimatise and I will provide our feedback. But for now I can at least tell that we were extremely happy with our guide Ivan.
Hi Denise, Sorry for late feedback.My wife and I had an awesome safari experience. As we didn’t have too high expectations to the camp on beforehand and really didn’t know what to expect, we must say that Skukuza Camp absolute lived up to any of our expectations. We had a great time and our guide was good company.Our guide Ivan Spies was excellent and it was a great benefit that we didn’t have to share the jeep with other tourists. Ivan took care of any of our needs, and very much thanks to him we believe that we got all what we came for. A few drawbacks are related to the lack of understanding the meaning of service in some of the camp restaurants and the Skukuza Golf Club, where we had some of our meals. They have a long way to go. And I assume they don’t really care as many tourists are from abroad and may only visit the Kruger Park once. But in general people were kind and smiled. We will have no concerns by recommending your services to family and friends. The safari we booked via you were well organized. Everything worked out fine from we were picked up in the airport until we were re-delivered at the airport after 4 fantastic days.
Kind regards,Marianne & Jens Petersen
|Garry Corcoran - Tuesday, February 19, 2013|
Sorry I did not give u ferdback. Rio Vista was great. Staff room food all excellent. I would go again. Kruger: Well next time please tell the cats I am coming. Did see lions though. Poor guide did his absolute best but those bloody cats were shy. Saving grace was the Rhinos. Did not see them anywhere else. Right now I am Animaled out, yes I still love them all but I have seen enough up close and personal. Anyway thanks for all your patients and efforts. I will certainly recommend you And Rio Vista to anyone who comes this way. Mad dash to Cape Town then back to Joburg for a couple of days. Then it's all over! I will come back to Africa and particularly SA. A beautiful country. Now heading for Southerost point and into Capetiown tomorrow.
Regards and thanks again
|Faiek Abrahams - Monday, February 18, 2013|
Many thanks to you for your willingness to assist outside your working hours and even over weekends, it is people like you with your services that makes our country, very proud of you.
My two Malaysian friends; Jayaa and Oliver had a fantastic time with their guide Ivan who did a sterling job.
Will recommend your services to anyone without any hesitation.
Keep up the good work and good wishes for the year.
|Helge Arhus - Tuesday, February 12, 2013|
We just got back home in Norway today, after >2 weeks great holiday in SA. Thanks again for arranging our Nelspruit stay in such a short notice!
I'll be happy to recommend your services, and will make a posting to your wall in the near future.
|Matthias Schudlo - Friday, February 08, 2013|
Thanks a lot.
I fully appreciated the tour. Everything that Erwin (I hope I spelled him right) arranged for the sight seeing was wonderful. We managed to see the big5 and Erwin made sure we could see the animals always from the right angle and gave us a lot of insights into details of landscape and each animal we have seen.
|Andre Fujichima - Wednesday, January 16, 2013|
I would like to thank you again for your assistance during the trip to Krugger and the safari.
The hotel management had apologized for their shortfalls as well as had made a bigger effort to make my last day a more pleasant stay.
I am sorry for sending you a text at 6am on Sunday morning but I had no one else to rely on to rectify the matter. Johan also had a very problem-solving attitude which I was very happy about.
Overall, thank you very much for your assistance. The trip was very successful!
Greetings from London!
|Marlon Benett - Wednesday, January 02, 2013|
Happy new yr Denise
We had a fantastic time . Will be definitely recommended it to our friends. Thank you for the great services.
We absolutely loved it and got to see the big five.
|Dennise McKillen - Wednesday, October 31, 2012|
Sorry I haven’t responded earlier, but this week’s activities have taken up a lot of my time. Yes, the weather was a bit ‘off’, but at least cool! We did manage to see the ‘BIG 5’, albeit some in the faaar distance! But this is the nature if game spotting – you have to take what you get!
I really enjoyed the day, very relaxing and Ivan certainly made the day as good as he could in spite of the weather and some animals not co-operating!
I have given Tumblestone Manor your details and I am sure they will be contacting you in future for their guests,
|Cynthia Warren - Monday, October 08, 2012|
Thank you so much for arranging accommodation at Lino's Lodge. It was perfect. Our tour guide Felicity was a joy. She has a wonderful sense of humour and is very knowledgeable about Maputo and Mpumalanga. She took good care of us and I enjoyed her company and that of the other people on the tour.
| Peônia Brito de M. Pereira - Tuesday, September 25, 2012|
Hi Denise, no problem, all went right!
Yes, we saw a lot of animals only the leopard was missing to complete the big five!
I loved Kruger and I hope I can come again to stay more days!
Thank you very much for everything!
|Ami - Wednesday, July 25, 2012|
We would like to thank you for the wonderful safari you organized for us. Janni, the guide was exceptionally good and we are all very happy.
All the best
Ami, Itzik, Osi
|James Beasley - Tuesday, July 24, 2012|
Yes, the safari went very well thank you. I had a great time.
We saw all the big 5 tho not the cheetah. Can't complain at that!
Ivan went over and above the call of duty each day so no complaints there at all. We also got on well with our other lone traveller who joined us.
So all in all an unforgettable experience and thank you for organising it.
|Carlos Macie - Tuesday, May 01, 2012|
I'm highly satisfied and my wife and kids are happy too.
Got a very professional work from you.
Jannie was kind, attentive and very respectfull. You couldn't choose a right person to take us to that safari. It was really wonderful.
I will defenitely recommend your services to friends and everybody that asks me about Kruger safari.
|Nadhiya - Sunday, April 29, 2012|
I wanted to thank you again for a lovely safari on Friday. It was a great experience and our guide, Ivan, was courteous, professional and knowledgeable.
I will definitely be using your agency again and will recommend you to others.
Thanks once again
|Diego Dal'Molin - Thursday, March 29, 2012|
Sorry for my delays.
I was very satisfied with your services. Thanks (9)
Rio Vista Lodge is a good place to stay (8).
Kruger Safari and guides were very good (9)
Service in general was very good. No complains at all. Next trip I will be contacting you again.
My friends also liked a lot.
|Marks Rapoo - Thursday, December 29, 2011|
Thank you very much for the e-mail.
On behalf of the family I would like to take this time to thank you. This was our first experience and all of us thoroughly enjoyed the trip to the Kruger. We had planned to do a self drive but later decided to leave this to professionals like you. We do not regret the decision we took as we got value for our money.
The experience will be with us for a very long time to come. We saw all the Big Five in the ten hours. Thanks Irvin. Lots of information was shared with us and learnt a lot. He really knows his stuff. Thank you Irvin.
We also thank for arranging the trip at such a short notice. That shows commitment and passion for your work. This speaks volumes for not only you and your company but tourism in Mpumalanga as a whole.
Rest assured this was not our last holiday in your province and city.
Once again thank you.
Hope you enjoyed your Christmas day and wishing you a successful 2012.
|Michel - Tuesday, November 08, 2011|
Yes our safari was overall quite good, even exceptional for the last day when we could spot something like a dozen of lions in 4 different locations, with a very amazing scene at one place (another great scenery was the view of a couple of lions "copulating" the previous day!!!). We saw so many animals and very often in interesting situations (hord of buffalos, elephants, hippo...). With a nice cheetah quite close to the road as a final touch!
Ivan is quite a nice guy and was never sparing with his efforts all the days long. He is a very calm person. I must say that as I am rather a stressed guy myself, I pushed him a little bit from time to time when I didn't understand some of his options. But no doubt I would go with him for another safari!
Accomodations was great in both locations - I love Olifant, we could all have spent one more night there. We were so tired that sharing a room was never a problem.
Lukas and Nick are very nice and interesting guys, thus a lot of pleasure too.
At the end of this email, I think i could go from "quite good overall" to great!!!
Many thanks to you and cheers
|Lukas - Tuesday, November 08, 2011|
The trip was great. Days were very hot and we saw a lot of animals. For a european this is just amazing to see the animals in freedom, living like they are supposed to.
I made a lot of pictures, although my camera was very bad compared to the ones of the others. Being only three in the car made the trip very enjoyable. Olifants camp was amazing. I could have stayed there a few more days.
Ivan was a great guide. I liked him a lot, also personally.
We saw all animals possible I think. Even a black Mamba and a Leopard.
Thank you again for all your help
|Phillip Eastwood - Monday, October 17, 2011|
Denise, I had an excellent day in KNP on Saturday with Jannie, who was an excellent guide to all that the Park offers Many thanks for organising it at such short notice.
|Roger Ford - Saturday, July 30, 2011|
I finally got back to France after 24 hours in Joberg airport. Anyway thanks for a great day in the park last Monday.
I will definitely come with you again if I am in Nelspruit and recommend you to my friends
|Hiten Vadhar - Friday, July 15, 2011|
Dear Denise Carey,
Good Morning to you. we reached safely at Bangalore India after completing very good tour to south Africa.
we enjoyed much as per our plan. we are fully satisfied with your services and the arrangements asked for.
we would like to come again in future and recommaned your Name to our friends too.
|Vicente Lourenco - Monday, May 09, 2011|
I have returned do Brazil yesterday night and only today I had a chance to read my mail. Regarding the safari at Kruger Park , I should say that it went very well. Ivan (that that accompanied myself and my wife), was very gentle and attentious in showing us all the details of the park. We have enjoyed it very much. Thank you very much for your attention and for the service provided.
|Scott Mcnaughton - Tuesday, May 03, 2011|Baie dankie, en ja – ons het die Maputo dag toer en die verblyf by Inkuba Game Lodge verskriklik baie geniet en wees verseker dat ek albei sowel as jou dienste met vrymoedigheid sal aanbeveel in die toekoms. Natuurlik glad nie lekker om terug te wees by die werk nie, maar nou ja.
|Andre Ferreira - Thursday, March 17, 2011|
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
Our family went for the first time to Maputo on 6 January 2011. We arrange with a local tour company to went into Mozambique. Therefore a tour guide was a necessity. We heard from my auntie to ask for Felicity Carey because she is "good". She was also last year October their tour guide into Mozambique. I was over the moon when it was confirmed that she will be our tour guide for the next day.
She was sharply at my address in Marloth Park at 06.30. Full of energy, outspoken, in full control of anything (border post, coffee shop, station, tour of two hours in Maputo, Costa da Soll). Incredibly but she knows everything and have an answer for everything. Her knowledge over the spectrum - from sugar cane up to the revolution in Mozambique is incredible. The way she "handle" people positively is amazing - just because she believe in herself and a personality which attract people. Always a smile - a girl who loves the nature and the wild life..
As a tour guide she is an asset . Hope the Company will give her recognition.
|Victoria Lundberg - Tuesday, November 30, 2010|
Everything went just great and we had an awesome time in South Africa!
The safari was one of the best experiences i have ever had, i dont know how to explain it in words, it was just sooo great! Thank you for making that day so good!
|Joan Russo - Tuesday, September 07, 2010|
Hi Denise --
For some reason, the trip home was a bit more challenging (multiple security checks and an SAA delay) but all is well in the end. Gorgeous weather here to come home to, so that was nice.
Thank you for a wonderful experience. Your professionalism, patience and experience made all the difference, and I really appreciate that. Donald and I would be delighted for you to visit if the U.S. is ever on your itinerary. I truly hope we have the opportunity to see each other againm
|Gary Zelko - Tuesday, July 20, 2010|
Hi Denise and thanks again. I am back in New York and appreciated all your help. regards, Gary
|Nick Peterson - Wednesday, July 14, 2010|

|Neil Purton - Monday, July 12, 2010|
Thankks Denise, everything was excellent, actually better than expected. No complaints!
Thanks again Neil
|Leo Simmons - Thursday, July 01, 2010|
I've just returned from a wonderful trip in SA and watching the World Cup. I was very satisfied with the one day game drive and just wanted to thank you for setting that up for me as well as working with my latest minute accommodations.
I will most certainly recommend your services to my friends, family and colleagues. I also hope to visit SA again and enjoy a longer, proper safari.
Cheers for now!
|Anne Gajewski - Saturday, June 26, 2010|
Good morning Denise,
We had a very good time at the Kruger National Park. The guides were very friendly and capable. All was fine.
See you next time ;)
|Joanna Tan - Monday, April 12, 2010|
Thank you for all the arrangement. We had a very good time but unfortunately we only had 1 day and it was too little in Kruger Park. Your guide Mark was a very experienced guide and detailed too. We had a lovely and fun time with him.
We are looking forward for a longer days in Kruger Park near future.
|Sophie Harlow - Thursday, March 25, 2010|
I would have sent this sooner but have only just got access to the internet - I am now in Durban.
Thank you so much for Tuesday!!! It was beyond incredible - we managed to see the big 5 and then some (all in 10 hours).
PG was a brilliant driver and very very informative.
I just wanted to say thanks again for something that both me and my friend will never ever forget and I have already started recommending people to you and will continue to do so in the future!
|Bill Silvert and friends - Monday, February 15, 2010|
Hi Denise, I wanted you to know that we were very happy with the safari you arranged for us, and in particular we were very pleased with our guide, Mark, both for his pleasant and helpful personality and for his knowledge and competence. If we return for another safari we shall certainly want to go with him again.
|Liam Collopy - Sunday, February 07, 2010|
Just to let you know I had a great day with Mark on Safari and he arrived on time to collect me. It would not have been such a good experience without his expertise. Many thanks.
|Jeff Edwards - Saturday, January 09, 2010|
I thoroughly enjoyed the Maputo tour last Wednesday. What an absolute star Felicity is. You could not have put us in better hands. Thanks for a really great little tour Denise,
|George en Rina Lubben - Thursday, October 22, 2009|
Bedankt voor de rondrit safari door jou Paul Krugerpark heel interessant en indrukwekkend mooi, wij sturen daarom enkele foto's naar je toe, van ons en de dieren die we door jou hebben gezien, nog bedankt.
Met vriendelijke groet,
George en Rina
|Mr Y Solley - Friday, October 09, 2009|
I would like to express my sincere gratitude for providing me with a fantastic trip to Maputo, Mozambique.
The time I had in South Africa was limited and I could only get one day off work, and your company was the only one that offered a one day trip to Maputo, amongst many other wonderful trips advertised on your very user friendly website. The services I received were amazing. It was completely professional, efficient, very helpful and most importantly got me the cheapest quote I could have imagined!
The trip itself was a booming success - and it has provided me with life long memories, that I will never forget. The trip was made even better by our OUTSTANDING guide, Felicity. She was helpful, accommodating, welcoming, had a great sense of humour, and was such a nice person. Her unbelievable and intimate knowledge of everything about Mozambique was so astonishing, I thought she ought to work for google! Her explanations about the social/political climate, the architechture of the buildings, and her knowledge of the local way of life was seriously impressive. I have never met such an amazing guide. Her knowledge of Portuguese was also fantastic, and it helped make the trip even more fun. She showed us how to barter with the locals and as such we all got great bargains! Lunch overlooking the Indian Ocean was a highlight and simply spectacular. We had a choice of seafood platter, with lots of culinary delights from the sea, or some Portuguese style chicken. Both were absolutely fabulous.
I truly recommend this company to anyone contemplating a trip. I had an amazing time and Maputo is a wonderfully diverse and interesting place. We got to see so much in such a short space of time, without ever feeling rushed in any way.
I will be forever grateful, so thank you.
Bon dias and Moito Obrigado!
