Great tour. Communication for initial pickup was good and on time, from there our guide TK looked after everything. Backpackers accommodations were a good standard overall (varied from basic to really nice). Activities were brilliant and scenery throughout the tour was fab. Tour guide TK added a lot of knowledge and was keen to share South African history and culture with the group as well as learn about our countries current affairs, culture and history.

Amazing! We did see a lot of animals and our guide Simba did a really good job, showing us around and taking the time to watch the animals for a little while, explaining their behavior etc. and answering all the questions - he was also very funny! :) we had a great time. We would do this tour anytime again and can highly recommend it!

The game drive was truly amazing. Our field guide, Simba made it even more memorable with his exceptional knowledge by making his stories funny and interesting.

The guides are friendly and go out of their way in all aspects. A must do for any wildlife lovers

The guide was very nice and had a lot of interesting information and stories
