Absolutely phenomenal experience, the tour guide was well versed and gave so much information on all the animals we observed "Kevane" he was super awesome with his guest and their comfortability. He really went out of his way for us to have the full experience in seeing the big 5. Absolutely an epic experience!!!! Thank you so much for the hospitality.

A very good trip, saw plenty of animals inc loins rhinos and elephants the ranger was very knowledgeable too. A drink was given on arrival and a buffet lunch was also provided, which was more than adequate. The only one of the big five we didn’t see was the Leopard which supposedly was not unusual as they are rarely seen. Well worth the money.

The excursion is highly recommended! Both tour guide Zayed and bus driver Isaak put a lot of effort into it. The lunch buffet was good (everything from traditional local food to tiramisu). We saw all of the Big 5 animals except the leopard. In addition: zebras, giraffes, springboks, hippos, etc. Think of an ID card (ID is enough).

Great trip for a very good price. Before the Safari there is even a huge food buffet inclusive and during the safari you get free drinks. Really great experience, thank you!

Very nice experience! Well organized, I was able to see many animals I wanted to, lunch was very good. The car was very safe and the driver very good. Recommend!
