I wanted to place on record how grateful I was with the excellent service that your Driver guides and yourself provided my colleagues and I throughout the England cricket tour to SA.
The staff you employ were as I mentioned fantastic and helped to make the tour the success that it was.
Please pass on my thanks to them all. And of course a big thanks to you.
I very much look forward to working with you on the next tour.
Best regards,

Thank you for a marvellous holiday and a wonderful Africa experience. We had a ball, and both Natasha and Jack were great guides and put up with four old girls, (with a lot of Aussie humour, friendly argument and total chaos), with admirable patience, humour and forbearance, especially handling mobile phone issues.

Natasha was really exceptional. We only had to mention something of interest and she would find it for us, something we forgot was found and she eventually got the hang of Aussie slang such as 'a hot chook'. We called her 'hawk eye' in Pilanesberg, as she could spot the animals from a great distance and also discern what they were. We saw so many different animals and Natasha was always ready to take a photo for us and tell us about the different game. Humour was always present when we were with Natasha.

Jack was a great guide in a different way. We ended up calling him 'son' as we were the 'grannies'. We saw everything bar Table Mountain from the top, but he also took us to the best fish and chip place, how well he knew us by this time. Even though the weather in Cape Town left a lot to be desired a diversion to the Botanical Gardens delighted us all.

The guest houses were great, especially Cape Elegance where we were looked after like family. Once, when we were late back, Jean and Denise said they were worried about us. I have not heard that since before my mother died!

Africa was all and more than I had expected and we were so lucky to see such a lot of the country and the scenery. Victoria Falls was a contrast of course, with the magnificent falls and the beautiful Victoria Falls Hotel for high tea on the terrace, (and a couple of warthogs having a great time digging up the manicured lawns for a roll in the dirt). That really tickled my sense of humour!

I would certainly be happy to recommend you to any of my friends, as the personal touch and the individual treatment made our holiday even more memorable.

Thank you, Chris.

Home from my trip to South Africa what a great time we all had and thank you for your itinerary it worked out very well.

It was so lovely to be met by Natasha each time we were in Johannesburg she was so helpful and took time to find out things if she did not know the answer and helped us all with mobile phone and Tablets and ipads problems, finding patchwork shops for Nanette and myself and cushions for Chris and things for Jill so she did not have to spend time at hairdresser.

Natasha has the eyes of a hawk she found animals in Pilanesberg before anybody else we kept saying how lucky we were to had her as our guide the other cars where driving past I am sure they did not see as much as we did, took a lot of photos which will take some time to go through and sort them out.

We also were lucky to have Jack at the Cape he is a patient man he had a lot of waiting while we were looking at the shops. the only disappointment was not able to get up Table Mountain because of the weather.

When we went to Victoria Falls it was so hot and humid and I personally felt that 2 nights would have been enough for people of our age.

For example we went to the Falls at 6.00a.m. before the heat of the day.

I would like to come back at some stage to do the Cable Car and to get to Port Elizabeth and Durban.

Thanks again for your hard work to make our stay very enjoyable and Natasha and Jack as our guides.

I just wanted to thank you for setting up our flawless transfer July 12th and 15th from Johannesburg to Sun City and back.
Our driver Fred was outstanding and very helpful.
Will be looking forward to using your service again.
Thanks again

Fred was a great guide and highly knowledgable about the area, not just the reserve but the culture and sights on the way to and from. I highly recommend this tour group.
