This tour starts off with a visit to the Kinyonga Reptile Park, a center for reptile-related research and public education, home to many species of snakes, frogs, and other interesting reptiles. At Kinyonga, you'll get to see and learn about reptiles, numerous amphibians and arachnids, many species of which are endangered in South Africa.

Had a wonderful day of quality time with my family during the Panorama tour! The comfort of not having to drive or search to find the best sights was great, and just to be able to enjoy the tour with my girls was priceless. Our guide Edward was fantastic! He knew exactly which sites to visit at which times in order to miss the rush, was extremely knowledgeable re the area, the sites and the history of the area (will never look at plantations the same again), friendly, efficient, professional, kind - and made us feel at ease from the moment he fetched us. Will definately book another tour through this company again! They really go the extra mile! Thank you for such a wonderful experience overall!

What an experience!

From the moment when we were picked up, the friendliness of our host Louis and his mannerisms immediately ensured me that our day was going to be an unforgettable one!!! His knowledge and humour was brilliant! Young man I can only say thank you for making our 5 year anniversary one for the books! I would highly recommend you for any tour to anyone and will ask for you personally on any tours in the future! Thanks for an experience that I have wanted to relive from 29 years ago, a holiday I experienced with my parents and have always wanted to do again, thank you again! Carry on chasing your dreams and being the unique individual you are friend. God bless.
