What a great experience! We had the same guide two days in a row and what can I say, we are absolutely thrilled! Our guide not only had a lot of specialist knowledge, he could even imitate almost all animals and we are sure that this is why we were so lucky to see a lion twice. They had long since left the road and disappeared into the tall grass, and his lure call made you cross the road again. In addition, we were really lucky to see the Big Seven on the 1 1/2 day safari with him! And many more frolicking, impressive animals! The name of our guide was: Heyn. Thank you Heyn for the great and unforgettable experience!

We had an amazing experience on the tour. Jerry was a phenomenal tour guide and had amazing insights about the animals of the park. He was very generous with his time and made sure we were able to see as much as possible. Even though when we went it was cold and rainy and not the ideal weather he was able to show us many different animals and get us up close to them. He is highly recommended.

We really enjoyed our safari morning drive. We got to spot a number of animals and overall was an awesome experience. Our game driver Edward was amazing and made the whole experience worth while for us. One could definitely tell this is something he enjoys. We loved every moment of the game drive. Thanks to Carol for her services.

It was really great! Our guide Gavin was very knowledgeable and also really tried to explore all the places where we could see the animals. Great experience

Our ranger was very friendly and knowledgeable. He had answers for our questions and we also learnt a lot from him.
