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.

The pilot / guide was very knowledgeable and obviously passionate about wildlife and the Isimangaliso Park. Not only did he tell us about the hippos and crocs, but we stopped to look at beautiful birds and trees too

The experience was awesome. Like that we could bring our own snacks and drinks. It was a relaxed informative trip. My grandmother enjoyed the trip. The guild was very accommodating.

Was nice, enjoyed the river and managed to see a croc

The guide, Brandon was friendly and knowledgeable.
