What people are saying about KwaZulu-Natal

A perfectly organized tour. Pick up at Oak Ridge Guest House perfect. Our guide, Gregory, made us feel from the start that this is our day today. An absolutely exciting climb to the Sani Pass. I can only recommend everyone to 1. do the tour and 2. book the tour as a private tour. We had the Toyota to ourselves. Looking at the Range Rover with 6-8 seats, we were more than happy to have decided on this tour. Everything was fine, including the little things.

What a wonderful way to experience KZN's oldest game reserve. We did the full day safari with started punctually with a 5am pick up from our BNB and included a healthy breakfast and braai for lunch. The guide, John was exceptionally knowledgeable and by lunchtime we had seen a large number of rhino, elephant, lion and buffalo as well as kudu, impala, giraffe, zebra and warthog.

Our guide Skigh knows what he is doing and has interesting information about animals, birds and what it is like to have grown up in this country with many problems, there is a small breakfast, then lunch is grilled in the park! This is not a classic game drive tour, you should go to other parks. The nature in this park is incomparable and definitely worth a trip!

This was a great experience both on land and in the ocean. Sakhile was an amazing, friendly, funny, and very knowledgeable guide. I highly recommend this experience.
