This was a good outing we got to see four of the big five (we did not see the leopard). We saw plent ly of giraffes and zebra’s. The only disappointment I have is that we didn’t see more animals such as the lions and elephants. Overall the organization was great and the lunch that they provided was good as well.

Reliable logistics (pick-up and drop-off times). Friendly, sociable and knowledgeable guides. And we spotted all of the different species you would like to see on safari, except for the lions (which is a matter of luck and expectations had been managed accordingly on beforehand).

Safari fantastico. Non siamo riusciti a vedere tutti i big five, ma l'esperienza è stata comunque bella. La nostra guida è stata molto esaustiva nelle spiegazioni delle caratteristiche dei vari animali che abbiamo avvistato nel tour

Wonderful three days safari. The lodges are wonderful and Given, our safari guide, a real legend. In case you're thinking of doing a safari this one is among the best exepreimces you can find!

Fantastic experience, great value for money, enjoyable, and great tour guides to show you around whom are very knowledgeable.
