What our Clients say
​​​"Having never visited the continent nor travelled on a guided 4x4 tour, my fiancé and I had no idea what to expect from our upcoming week in the bush. One of our greatest concerns was safety, and immediately any worries were assuaged by our guide, Johan's, attentiveness and professionalism. Our busy minds were quieted by the rush of wind and wild lands that passed alongside our caravan and nights spent around the fire talking story and enjoying the play of animal sounds soon lulled us into the single most relaxing and memorable journey we have yet experienced. Our guide's knowledge of the region, experience as an overlander, and passion for sharing it all with others can not be beat. If an authentic, overland experience is what you seek, then look no further. Can not recommend this trip and Johan enough!" Mason Schreck, San Francisco, July 2016
   
"Hi Johan. Thank you for the perfect organisation for our Botswana Trip. My wife and me have been very impressed and enjoy the trip. We had well informed an good rangers. All the Lodges had been gentle, clean and well  organized. A real adventure for Europeans. You can use me every time as reference for future activities" 
Max Fenner, Switzerland, October 2016 
     
"This was a great holiday with every day bringing something new and exciting.  We experienced all the accommodation options, including the main lodge, the walking camp, the tree houses and even spent 2 days at the beach seeing turtles.  The walking safari was very unique and really felt like a safari from another age, although make sure you bring practical footwear.  We stalked a Rhino, although maybe you could say she stalked us.  The tents were very luxurious, even had indoor plumbing, so don't think you will be roughing it too much.  Each experience was excellent and unique.    We saw the big 5 and all the wildlife we could have hoped for, even a leopard.  The food and wine were excellent everywhere and the staff really treated you well.  The perfect Safari holiday.  
Give it my highest recommendation."  Brad Novak (UK), February 2017
