  • Gavin
“Highlights - Watching the stunning scenery roll by, tea & scones in charming Matjiesfontein, Prince Albert, Victoria Beach, Monkeyland, Plettenberg Bay, Storms River Mouth walk, and accommodation. Phillip was an attentive and knowledgeable guide. Relaxed and very professional. Good sense of humour.”
Great trip all round
5 - Excellent
  • Carl Daft
“Very well organised from start to finish. All staff friendly and professional and got to see and do a lot during the trip. Saw a big pride of lions very close up within 10 minutes on our first drive and saw all of the big five over the six days - including lots of elephants, many more than expected! Also had two separate leopard sightings which was a treat. Accommodation was clean and comfortable and meals were all good too. All-in-all a very pleasant and enjoyable experience and would definitely recommend.”
