If you are looking for some awesome, knowledgeable people to work with, these are the guys I highly recommend. Their friendliness and result-driven approach is what I love about them.

Spent 5 fantastic days exploring the wildlife of SA with these guys. 

Went on numerous tours, including an incredible night safari (not to be missed!) 
- And saw 4 of the big 5! 

The guides are friendly and knowledgeable, being on hand to answer all our random questions in an engaging way. Only thing missing was the Leopard! 

Couldn’t recommend more highly.
