We would like to give our biggest thanks to the wonderful driver Mr Dries de Bruyn, who drove us to Cheetahs Safaris 5 th of march and back and then showed us around in JOhannesburg a whole day. He was very nice and kind and showed us the " diamonds" of Johannesburg.

My overall experience with Climax was wonderful,Cecil was so helpful prior to Departure ,gave us tonnes of ideas on what to do when we did have spare time and the Itenery itself was fantastic !
When we arrive we never once had to worry about what we had to do or where to go ,it was all so organised and Nic our driver went above and beyond the call of duty ,My Partner proposed over there so between Nic and Cecil they organised a jewellers to go too ,again above and beyond !

South Africa, has such a natural beauty, diverse cultures, and amazing wildlife, is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular countries in this world I would recommended my trip and how to organise it through yourselves and Climax !

We can't say enough positive things about the wonderful Beauty by Diversity tour we just completed with Climax Tourism Services. Cecil was always extremely prompt in answering all of our questions, and he had great suggestions when we asked how to fit a few changes into our itinerary. Our guide, Nico, took care of everything for us - almost to the point where we forgot how to think on our own! In addition to having enormous insight into the culture and wildlife of South Africa, he was well-organized, knew exactly where he was going, and had a great sense of humor. Everyday was filled with laughter and fun. The food and accommodations were wonderful as well. Everything was well-planned and went without a hitch, and we truly felt like we got a tremendous value for our money. South Africa is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, and our diverse itinerary gave us a great taste of what it has to offer. Table Mountain, Cape Point, Pongola, the Featherbed Experience, Kruger Park, and all of South Africa's natural beauty, mix of cultures, and amazing wildlife will stay with us forever. Thanks again, Cecil and Nico! It was a trip of a lifetime, and it certainly was above and beyond what we expected

Thanks for your help arranging for our time at Buffalo Ridge Safari Lodge. We loved the lodge, the people, the food and the game drives – had excellent guides

Just a note to thank you for organising such a memorable and enjoyable visit to South Africa. We certainly saw a lot of the country are all inspired to visit again in the not too distant future. The accommodation was excellent. The lodges especially were absolutely wonderful. The best thing, however, was our guide. Mart was excellent. She was a mine of information but, more importantly, she became one of our group and we were all sorry when we had to leave her. Your logo is certainly correct; we did leave as friends.

Best wishes

We arrived home from Syria on Sat after an amazing trip. I wanted to let you know that we were more than pleased with all the arrangements that you made for us. All of our accomodation and meals were good and some were outstanding, especially the guesthouses in Swellemdum and Outshoorn. We would like to have spent a week in each of those. South Africa is much more beautiful than I imagined and the variety of terrrain, flora, etc kept our interest throughout the tour. We enjoyed Seppie very much and he took excellent care of us, going above and beyond anything we could have expected.
We were so impressed with your country that we may someday return for a longer visit, in self catering accomodation, but that will have to wait until the bank account is replenished.
I intend to spread the word here that South Africa is a great winter holiday detination and if I get the chance I will recommend your services to anyone who wants to go .
Should you ever have a request from a customer for a reference from someone who has used your travel service, we would be happy to provide it.

Thank you so much for making all the arrangements for our South African trip. I have lots of good memories of your country. The trip took us to so many beautiful sites and varied countryside. I realize there is a lot more that we did not see.
For me the highlight was actually standing on the most southern point of the continent. It is something I never dreamed of doing; my heart was doing flipflops. I thank you for respecting our wish to see the beauty of nature rather than doing the tourist things like elephant rides. The hike to the falls in Tsitsikamma National Park is not for the faint of heart or the unfit. As the oldest member of the group I was pleased to be one of four who made it to the falls. Also, I was the first to the top of Signal Hill.
I will recommend your company to anyone asking for help with a tour of S.
Africa. Your care to make the arrangements made our trip very smooth. Seppie kept us entertained too. His easy going manner and flexibility were appreciated.

Our experience with Climax Tourism Services and specifically with our guide, Mart van der Walt, was thoroughly enjoyable and informative. We were absolutely thrilled by seeing all the BIG FIVE and so many more species of animals and birds as well as the spectacular scenery from Cape Town to Kruger Park to Johannesburg. My wife and I and two young women from Ireland traveled in a up-to-date van with a good speaker system and stayed in pleasant accommodations. We had numerous opportunities for interaction, not only about the wildlife and geography, but also about the history and cultures that created 21st century South Africa in comparison to that of our own countries.

Dear Cecil,
I'm sorry that it took us so long to get in touch with you, but after our Kruger vacation we spent quite some time in Europe and upon return to the US we had tons of stuff to catch up with. But now we want to thank you for the perfect organization of our trip - everything was super! Although it seems that it is a much slower pace for many things there, we've got everything going fairly fast upon arrival and with car (much older and worn out than expected) and mobile phone we were rapidly on our way. We arrived to the Inn earlier than expected and got scared by the last days of the cold spell... Once in Kruger, the weather turned out to be perfect and had a very enjoyable time there. To our surprise, we've seen lots of animals already up North (Punda Maria area) and had plenty of occasions to take pictures. Unfortunately, we still don't have the "big 5" - the leopard keeps hiding, so I guess we will have to return in a few years. Maybe you'll be willing to take care again of the bookings...
Thus, everything went well, even the weather turned very windy and cool only the day we left (and we've seen the worst later on, on the news). All the info we've got from you was very helpful - thanks again!
We hope that you will be able to provide this wonderful service for many years to come and show the beauty of your country to people from all over the world. And be assured that the day we think of doing it again, we'll contact you!
Best wishes,
Ramona and Matt

Remeber us!!
How are you doing - I hope you are keeping busy (on a pink tractor if I recall some random conversations correctly!!)
I was talking about our trip with some friends at the weekend and I thought I'd look up the website. I 'm glad to see the 13 day one is still going so others get to have such a great time as we did - how I would love to do it all again sometime!
I noticed that Jennifer and I's comments are not on the guest feedback - and I thought our experience with the alcholic grandmother would be such a recommendation! I am sure we gave you a glowing reference... although I think you needed a holiday after our trip just to get over the whole experience.
Anyway Jennifer and I are meeting up in Ireland in September so I'm sure we will recount every detail of our trip - I know we had an absolutely fantastic time.
I hope you are keeping well and the tours are fully booked!

DUTCH ALTHLETES MS ANGELI SPIERGENBERGER

On behalf of CEO, Mr Colin Stier and myself we hereby would like to thank you and your tour guide, Mr Chris Kruger, wrt the Pilansberg tour and visit to Sun City ON 08 March 2007. For the High Performance Centre, visited by foreign athletes, is of the utmost importance to render professional and service of high quality for they are important to us. Their experience and hospitality of South Africa may change wrong ideas and perceptions. We need them to bring about a great understanding wherever they come from of South Africa. We want to exchange our deepest appreciation and gratitude for the professional service the Dutch Athletes experienced. They came back to me and thank us for the tour and mentioned the way Mr Chris Kruger took care of them. Your Professional service was noted by our MD, Mr Toby Sutclife and we will certainly make use of your service. Please do thank Mr Chris Kruger for make us proud to have a Tour Company who are very professional.

Richard and Stephanie Coggill

Now we have been back for a week we just wanted to send a quick note to say how delighted we were with our Climax Africa trip. The accommodation and the itinerary you had developed for us was perfect. The mixture and style of lodges together with the different types of locations worked really well.
Andre was an excellent guide: attentive and knowledgable and he provided us with a wealth of information about the country and the wildlife.
We would not hesitate to recommend your company to others planning a trip to South Africa and we would readily use your services again should we plan another trip to explore a little more of your country (probably in a year or so!!)
Thank you once again.

Andrew Tanner and Julia Taylor - from Australia

A mighty thank you for the experience your team at Climax Tourism Services offered us, both Julia and myself had a totally wonderful time with Andre at Pilanesberg National Park from 22nd to the 25th January this year.
We did enjoy the opportunity that you offered us to see something that is indeed uniquely South African and our guide Andre was fantastic to say the least. We found Andre to be exceptionally easy going about the schedule and flexible so that we were able to squeeze about all we could out of our 4 days on Safari.
His knowledge of the animals, their habitat and general ecosystem in and around Pilanesberg gave us an excellent opportunity to see all that we could in the time we had, we didn't see any Buffalo, Leopard or Lion, but we did see a Cheetah and some Black Rhino which was the highlight for me.
Another point worthy of comment is Andre's obvious passion for the birdlife, I am sure that we saw much much more than other tourists due in fact that Andre would be just as happy to stop for a Blue Waxbill as he would for an Elephant.
Thank you for making our final activity on South Africa soil so memorable and we will certainly be in touch in the future for a return visit to go into Kruger National Park.

Karen and Lesley - from UK

Apologies for the delay with feedback from the holiday. Demands of work!
We had a wonderful holiday, made all the more enjoyable because of the intelligence and vast knowledge of our amazing guide Mart. What a source of information and stories she possesses.
We had some wonderful experiences along the way, culminating with the high point of Kruger.
Definitely want to go there again one day.

Ole Tjomsland - from Oslo, Norway

After returning to Norway with several degrees below zero I would on behalf of my family like to express our sincerely appreciations for all arrangements you made for us during our stay in South Africa 20th December 2006 – 4th January 2007. Furthermore I would like to thank your excellent guide Andre Gildenhuys, whose efforts, knowledge and friendliness by far exceeded our high expectations. His very skilled contributions made us feel very welcome in your beautiful country resulting in an unforgettable holiday. I am more than willing to be used as a reference for his excellent guiding-skills.

Paula J. Mullins - from USA

Hi, Mr. Harley - I am finally sending this note which is long overdue. I went on the mini safari to Kruger Nat Park with Kathy Adams- House back in Sept & Johan Noppe was our guide.
I wanted you to know that I had such a wonderful time & the time there was magical. The arrangements & facilities were nice & little things like the basket with goodies to begin our morning was greatly appreciated.
Johan was such a wonderful guide - so nice, attentive & knowledgeable. The only possible way the trip could have been any better was for it to have been longer but not even sure that would have made a huge difference given our incredible experience for the 3 days we were there.
Thank you so much for making this experience so memorable. Hopefully, I can return some day & have told several friends about it in hopes they can visit some day.

Leonie and Colin Metcalfe - from Leeds, England

Returned two weeks ago from the best holiday we`ve ever had (South African Highlights). The holiday far exceeded our expectations, just got better and better as it went along. I picked your Company purely because it seemed to offer just what I was looking for - small tours to the places I wanted to go to, allowing for independent travel at the end. I had no idea what to expect, in fact I was expecting something middle of the road to basic, probably with some hitches along the way. I was certainly wrong there!
We couldn't believe it when we were picked up at Johannesburg by Eugene who was to be our guide for the first leg of the holiday (Kruger Park), when he told us that the tour comprised simply of the three of us, he would take us to our hotel, and collect us next morning (time to suit ourselves so we could have a lie in after long flight). We thought Fantastic... don't expect this again. After a wonderful few days in the Kruger (personally I had not been bothered about visiting the Kruger, as I`m not particularly "into" animals, but this proved to be one of the many hightlights). we flew down to Port Elizabeth to join the Garden Route Tour, where we were met by Peter. Again, to be another individual tour .. just the three of us.
To be individually chauffeured around with what in effect were personal drivers was a fantastic experience. Not only did we have their personal attention the whole time, but as we got to know them, and they us, they each knew what we would be interested in seeing, and went out of their way to show us (eg garage of vintage cars in George) - well off the beaten track and certainly not on the itenerary. Again, if we were not interested in something on the itinerary, they would make sure they took us somewhere else they knew we would enjoy more. No way would we have been able to see many of these things had we been on a large tour, or done it ourselves on a self drive option.
Both guides were superb, and can't possibly be beaten for their knowledge, friendliness, helpfulness and sheer good company. In fact, after leaving Peter at the end of the tour in Cape Town, we had arranged our own accommodation, where we dropped us off, and on his return home to Port Elizabeth a few days later, he telephoned to make sure we were ok and to wish us well on our return home. Not only that, but as we were staying a good way out of Cape Town and didn't want to hire a car, we were anxious as to how we were going to get around Cape Town and surrounding area. No problem there... Peter put us in touch with another guide who he knew of in the area. What service!
The hotels/lodges were excellent (one even included Basil Fawlty Mark 2!) and as for La Plume ..... I'll say no more ... in no way could that "B & B" be bettered. Certainly equivalent to 5* in UK.
I would thoroughly recommend your Company (and have done), to anyone and everyone. I only hope that next time I book with you (which I will), the holiday we chose will be as good, as it can't possibly be any better.
Keep up the good work and keep me posted of any new trips you organise.
Many thanks - will certainly be booking with you again.

Ted Steiner - from Canada

Overall we had an excellent experience. The guide, Andre, was outstanding. The food and the vehicle were great. Our only complaint is that the lodging at Skukuza was not as nice as we had expected. It was generally clean and secure, but not luxurious by any means.
We would also, in retrospect, have preferred to receive a choice of airlines and flights to Mpumalanga, as the flights that were arranged for us turned out to be much less convenient than if we had been able to fly on SAA (since the rest of our tickets were on SAA).
I would happily recommend this tour to friends or family, particularly if Andre is available as the guide.
Thanks for helping provide this experience for us.

Kathryn Davis - from United Kingdom

Yes, thank you we had a lovely holiday, I guess we didn't fully appreciate the difference between the basic government run lodges in the Kruger and the more elaborate ones that you see in the brochures. However, this did not spoil our enjoyment and we all had a very good holiday, now for the feedbck.
First of all we would like to say thank-you to you and Cecil for all the information and advice supplied to enable us to have a most fantastic holiday in South Arica.
We chose the trip Beauty by Diversity and with Mart as our guide, who was very knowledgeable on all animals, birds, plants, history and culture we felt we achieved a fantastic amount from those 13 days.
We had perfect weather for Table Mountain and one of our party abseiled part way down, only to find she had to climb up again!!
The scenery on the Garden Route was spectacular. My husband said the Aqarium in Durban is the best he has ever seen and could have spent a lot longer there.
In Kruger we saw so many animals, its easier to say the only one we didn't see was the leopard. We were impressed with the country and the friendliness of all the people we met and would very much like to go back.
Thanks again to Vera, Cecil and particularly Mart who drove theCombi and guided us for over 2000 miles.

Oct 2006

Steve & Nicky Hilliar - from United Kingdom

My wife, Nicky and I arranged much of the trip over the internet and took a 3 day safari at Madikwe.
Cecil was most helpful in advising on the 'independent' part of our holiday. We wanted a safari in a non malaria area, and Cecil suggested Madikwe, which was excellent.
The accommodation was supurb and organisation faultless, we saw lion, elephant, zebra, rhino, giraffe, hyena, sable, eland, wildebeest, buffalo and the scarce wild dogs. Tremendous viewing for us on our first safari.
From our initial contact,organising the safari (and tour of Pretoria at the end of the holiday), being collected and dropped off at the airport all was handled efficiently by friendly and knowledgable tour guides.

Hugo & Maya Winiger

Maya and myself we had the chance to find the best tour guid we could fid for our trip and visit in the Pilanesberg game Reserve . we very much appreciated her comments, information in all respects about annimals, plants and genral. We felt very safe all the time and 100% assisted.
Thank you again for all .

Sep 2006

Robyn Lassey - from New Zealand

We were indeed very happy with the arrangements made for us for our South African safari trip to Pilanasburg.
Rudolph was a WONDERFUL guide. He arrived very promptly to pick us up from the hotel - indeed he was early. From the very beginning he did all he could to ensure that our experience was a wonderful one. His knowledge of the birds and animals was great and he shared so much with us. We found him to be friendly, approachable and always cognisant of our needs. I could not praise him enough and would thoroughly recommend him to anyone wanting a safari guide.
The accomodation arranged was great - the only comment I would make is that I think that many New Zealanders (including us) would have been happy to save a little more money and stay in a safari tent rather than the grander accommodation.
I think it is always a good measure of a holiday to be able to say at the end of it "if we were doing this again - and knew it was the only opportunity we would have to do this we would do exactly the same thing"!
Your efforts on our behalf were very much appreciated.

Francisco Tome - from Portugal

We are now back to work after an excellent holidays in SA.
This email is to say tank you to you for the excellent tour you to the operator who organized our group. Really everything was very well prepared and the choices were all very good. Marta was excellent and made us felling her like a friend and not a guide what was wonderful.
We hope you can return one day to SA and than we will contact you again.

Jul 2006

Susan Green - from Canada

We found this operator through The Africa Guide.
Cecil contacted me with all the information I could ever need in planning a trip to South Africa which was quite useful.
We were going to be in South Africa for 9 days and had a big list of places we wanted to see so we arranged a customized itinerary. They worked with me tirelessly to include everything in our itinerary and to stay within our budget using a combination of day tours and self drive.
Our trip was fantastic. The tours were great and we were very happy with all the accommodations.
For anyone traveling to South Africa, I would highly recommend using this tour operator

John Davis - from United States

My buddy and I just got back from the safari at Kruger and Moholoholo.
We expected to have a good experience of course, but we never would have imagined just how great a trip it would turn out to be. We saw all of the "Big Five" as well as countless other animals, and found the accomodations to be just what we were looking for.
I must tell you that one of the most positive and enjoyable aspects of our trip was our excellent guide, Mart Van der Felt. Her knowledge and professionalism was top notch, and her enthusiasm and joyful personality was positively contagious. This added a dimension to our trip that was far beyond what we ever would have expected. If we asked her a question about something, and she did'nt know the answer (a rare occurrence), she would show up later after researching the subject with even more information than we had asked for.
During the long drive to Kruger and back, she dazzled us with her knowledge of the geography, history, and culture of the people that inhabited the various landscapes we travelled through.
It seemed like Mart couldn't do enough for us, even bringing Charlie lunch when he wasn't feeling well one day, or offering to do our laundry (I thought this was way above and beyond so I did it myself).
In closing I would like to thank the operator and his staff for the speedy answers to all my inquiries, your service, and for making my first safari something I will remember for the rest of my life. I would gladly recommend this operator to any friend who is interested in going to Africa.
Hopefully I will get the chance to return some day.

Mar 2006

Rob & Jenny Atkin - from Australia

The five days we spent in the park filled us with a sense of awe and sheer delight. The range of plant, bird and animal life which Nico taught us about totally exceeded our expectations. We were so fortunate to have a guide of his calibre. The tour ended in Pretoria, somewhat with a sense of sadness that we were saying farewell, but the tour was the highlight of our 5 week vacation, and the memories and photographs will endure.
We must say thank you to Cecil for his organisation, and a big hug to Nico for his skills, knowledge and friendship.

Sue, Lou and Louis Kuhlmann - from United Kingdom

My husband and I and our 6 year old son have just returned from our trip of a lifetime and it could not have been possible without the fantastic services of the operator.
From our very first contact, Cecil dealt with our queries with the utmost professionalism and dedication. He is a truly passionate South African with a wealth of knowledge and information about one of the worlds most beautiful countries.
After many wonderful suggestions and ideas from Cecil, we decided to spend our safari experience at the Serondella Game Lodge in the Thornybush Game Reserve.
From the moment we arrived we were treated with care and gracious hospitality. Our accommodations in a private thatched chalet was simply luxurious. Delicious meals were served on a beautiful deck overlooking the magnificent bush and waterholes, the sounds of the area were magical. Our hosts, tracker, and the entire staff were warm and welcoming - their knowledge of the bush, wildlife and surrounding areas made our visit that much more special.
The game viewing far exceeded our expectations thanks to our fabulous tracker Themba and Ranger John - we saw the Big 5 within the first 24 hours of our stay, not too mention the other countless spectacular species of mammals, birds, snakes and insects - we even had a constellation lesson of the stars on our game drive back one evening! Well done Jess and John of the Serondella Game Lodge for making it a truly magical place - we will treasure our beautiful memories for years to come, a trip we will never forget!
And a great big thank you to Cecil for guiding us through what has been a journey of a lifetime.

Fritz and Susanna - from Switzerland

We got what we were looking for. We saw a lot more tambuki than we expected...
The service provided by the guides on safari was very, very, very good. We learnt a lot about your country and the bush (from the helmeted guinnefowls to the wildebees, the hartebees and the marullahtrees...)
If one wants to see a lot of animals we blieve that a place like Masai Mara is more appropriate, especially so because there you don't have do drive on roads only.
Of course, when we come back to South Africa and we certainly will recommend your services to our friends all over Europe.

Jan 2006

Bruce Murray - from Australia

Our trip to Africa was wonderful....we were lucky to see a fair proportion of the country in a short time. We were particularly impresed with the service provided by the operator based in J'berg.
The courtesy, professionalism and service we received from Cecil, the proprietor, made our trip.His knowledge and service was second to none...we really felt we arrived as strangers but left as friends.
All this from a simple booking over the internet.....we will certainly recomend them to our friends and rebook ourselves in the future.

Jan 2006

M W Streeter - from United Kingdom

On safari, our guide (who grew up in South Africa) knew what species we were looking at as soon as he saw it, he also had a reference book so we could find out more about the animals. We took our own binoculars, but he had some available too
Amongst many other things, we saw a cheetah eating and feeding it's cub. We also had a close encounter with a Bull Elephant (luckily it held it's trunk up, so we knew it was a 'false charge'). My son was impressed!
Ten out of ten!

Dec 2005

Alexandra & David Wallace - from United Kingdom

We highly recommend our recent safari trip to booked through this operator.
From start to finish everything was first class.
We met people from many different countries, thus making it interesting and good fun. We hope to be able to look forward to another safari in the future.

Had a wonderful time with a great guide who was very knowledgeable made to feel at ease and well looked after.
Only wish we were back there now.

Jesse Yu, McKinsey & Company - Tapai & Singapore

Just got back to Taipei after 30 hours... whew! at one point, I wasn't if we were going to make it because the flight was just so long.
I wanted to give you a big thank you for a super fantastic trip at pilansberg - the group, including myself, were very satisfied with the experience, particularly because you had the local knolwedge to show us local scenes such as markets, black homelands, point out the different types of wild animals and answering our gazillion, incessant questions.. perhaps the most tiring of it all =) We were also very thankful for your professionalism and care, such as customizing the trip to our needs (sun sity, lion farm), acting with a sense of urgency when Gillian dislocated her jaw, etc.
I am personally looking forward to visit SA again.. and perhaps other parts of the African continent next time around. If you ever find yourself in my neck of the woods, don't hesitate to give me a shout!
Take care,

Sep 2005

Patricia & Claudio - Italy

Nancy Haws & Janine Hegarty - Colorado, USA

Where do we begin?
Travelling with you these past five days have been some of the most memorable times in our lives.
Janine and I were so excited about this journey to South Africa… but experiencing it with your deep love for culture, wildlife and conservation deepened our respect and understanding for this unique country in Africa.
Every morning felt completely different than the one before. We could never have imagined such thrilling sights, sounds, tastes, touches and fragrances as we have enjoyed throughout this trip.
Thanks so much for sharing your country’s riches with us.
You & Cecil represent the very best ambassadors for South Africa’s diverse wildlife and wonderful people.
I hope some day you, Adele, Lydia, Leo & Lulu can visit the US. You are most welcome to call us if you need help or would like to spend time in Colorado.
Stay healthy. Best of luck in all of your endeavours. Always take good care of this gorgeous country of yours.

Melissa Ellwanger - USA Delegation to the Codex Alimentarius

This has been such an incredible experience in every way. Thank you for helping us create our own African Safari experience - it has been better than I could imagined. Your responsiveness to my requests for information and your personalized service has made this unforgettable. I could not have asked for anything more! Your hospitality, knowledge and personality make the whole experience even more enjoyable.
Thank you for the safe driving, cooking, information and entire journey. I have thoroughly enjoyed myself and would love to come back again.

Natalie & Brian Allen - Chicago, IL, USA

...our trip was really great. We truly appreciate all you help in organizing our lodging before and after our safari trip.... this was the most amazing trip I have taken. I learned so much about the general history of South Africa... I absolutely loved staying on the river at Lower Sabie... the variety of animals and birds was fantastic...even when the elephant pushed us back on the road... Thank you for your patience and answering all our questions with expertise.

Jim and Ike - Mas Du Petit Grava, Provence, France

I cannot begin to express to you how much our two days with the animals of Kruger Park has meant to us. Not in our wildest imagination did we expect to see so many of them and of such variety. Our close encounters with the elephants and giraffes are among the most memorable of our many experiences.
All of the above was made even more significant as you shared with us from your personal knowledge and experience with the animals and the Park. Your love of and commitment to what you do didn't end at dusk. Certainly, among the best moments were enjoyed as we ate meals that you magically produced from your food box and freezer, with candles and table cloth, no less.
Thank you for your professionalism and personal attention that made our time with you so special. We will be sharing your information with our friends and clients.
We look forward to repaying some of your hospitality when you visit us in France. Plan to come soon.

Although it is a bit late, we still wanted to thank you for the wonderful and interesting trip and time we had at the Kruger Park of S-A, we all enjoyed every minute of it (and we hope you did too), and we are definitely planning to come again for "second round" at the Kruger.
We are keeping the right to use you as a guide for our future trips to S-A and other African countries, and also to on pass your name among our friend and relatives with our warmest compliments...

Winston and Natalie Williamson - Nelson New Zealand

We are very sorry for taking so long to get in touch but gosh time does go by fast these days! We had a fantastic tour of South Africa and especially the part with you and Nico.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time with you two and thank you so much for showing us around so well. We are still sorting through photos and have some amazing ones of animals, including of course the leopard and those lions close up.
Had a look at your web site and found this interesting and have advised the office as it is always possible they could have clients requiring your services. Who knows maybe we will be back one day. Or you should make a trip to NZ for sure!
Kind regards Cecil and if you see or talk to Nico please say hi from us.
