Driver arrived on time to pick us up and got us there safely. Guide was friendly and informative. He also made no promise of what, if any, animals will be seen. As such, it did feel like we took more time riding around looking for animals more than anything else. Unfortunately, we only saw 3 out of the big 5 (no cats). Sightings of antelopes, rhinos, elephants, zebras and giraffes were nice. Lunch break was appreciated after a lot of riding in the morning (food was ok). Don't regret the excursion, just not sure if it was worth the cost.

An excellent day spent on safari. Polite driver and an engaging tour guide. Petros made the safari enjoyable and we were delighted to see a good range of animals close up. He took time to not also speak about the animals, but also about the plants and trees. Information and communication prior to the safari was very good also.

The trip was nicely arranged and the team has proved to be very professional. The provided the services as committed. However the safari vehicle driver put utmost efforts to make us see all big 5,we couldn't see Lion and Leapords.

A Great safari with many sightings, even a snake on the road. Beards of elephants and many other animals, often near the road. We had a knowledgeable and funny guide/driver, always on the lookout for sightings.
