Mike was a great guide we saw all the animals I expected to see The drive from capetown is long but he kept us entertained with relevant information. We were able to customize the stops to our liking

It was extremely special sharing a safari with our family from the UK 🇬🇧 our guide was amazing and spent time explaining why the animals are doing what they do etc. An extra bonus was I bumped into my primary school buddy who I haven't seen for 40 years. Really special day all round.

This was an amazing experience! I was picked up at the rental and transported to the reserve by the tour company. Getting there was almost as wonderful as the Safari itself. The driver was incredibly knowledgeable about the history of all things along the route. We stopped at a winery and a grape orchard which are plentiful in Cape Town. ...Then the reserve. I took hundreds of amazing photos that made even a lousy picture taker like myself look like a skilled photographer! The pictures make themselves, but I guess the same can be said for anywhere in this region!

If you're looking for an excellent day trip from Cape Town then this one should be on your shortlist. Our guide Werner was excellent, very knowledgeable and a very friendly and likeable chap. The scenery for the drive to the reserve is great and the lunch and safari were both very good. All in all a great day at a reasonable price. Highly recommended.
