South African Walking Safari Aug 2015
5 - Excellent
  • Anonymous
“A fantastic trip which gave us a some highlights of South Africa. We really enjoyed the Drakensberg area and especially loved the chain ladders! Walking in the indigenous forest was a great experience. We enjoyed the 2 nights in Swaziland as the area was very scenic and the walking good. Visiting the Karongwe and Kruger was so worthwhile - we saw so many animals, birds and plants. Our day on the beach at Cape Vidal was great fun and we loved the big waves and the white sand, a real opportunity to relax at the half way point”
Amazing Sights and Wildlife Encounters
4 - Very Good
  • Mikaela Elizabeth Dibble-Kahn
“This trip was full of amazing people, places and of course wildlife. There are a lot of early mornings and long days of driving and it can be exhausting setting up and breaking down camp almost everyday, but I you want to see a lot of countries and places that you wouldn't usually be able to reach and you have a limited amount of time, then this tour is great. As a solo female traveler, I felt safe and comfortable during this trip and made a lot of other traveling nomad friends during this adventure that I plan to travel with in the future. They were also very good at providing vegan food for every meal for those of us who requested it. My favorite part was the Serengeti, absolutely unreal some of the encounters we had.”
Great way to see SA
5 - Excellent
  • Anonymous
“An interesting and varied trip, including trekking in several locations, safaris in a number of places, a trip to a beach and a boat ride to see hippos and other wildlife. I like hippos and gazelles.”
