The guide was excellent in explaining not only about each animal, but also about the history of the cities we passed on the way. Struggled to find and photograph as many animals as possible within 5 hours of the game. Meanwhile we left Johannesburg and 5 hours away from the reservation. Staying in the van for 15 hours was exhausting
Amazing experience! We had a dream to enjoy the kruger a bit and our new friends Ben and Patrick helped us with it to the best of our ability. We are speechless to describe how important it was to make this happen. thank you very much from my heart.
Very nice trip! The guide was very symphatic and we were really lucky- saw 4 of the big 5, so great day. Would 10 of 10 recommend this
