Bush & River Safari Package


Outstanding trip

Our guide David was excellent. He spotted and pointed out a huge amount of animals, he gave interesting and informative commentary. The food provided was delicious and well prepared and presented.

Brilliant value and service

Travelled with 2 children of 5 & 8 and friends and did a 3 day tour found the package brilliant value and would highly recommend. The staff were really friendly and knowledgable and made every trip an unforgettable experience

5 Day Safari

It was an amazing experience! The guides were awesome (I'd ask for John!) and extremely knowledgeable. He knew where to take us to see what we wanted. We even managed to find the elusive black rhino whom he had only seen twice in his five years of working there! The hotel accommodations are incredible - 5 stars in my opinion...

Half day Safari and Boat Safari St Lucia

We booked the half day safari at Hluhluwe-imfolozi game park and the St. Lucia estuary boat tour as a package.
