While not a true safari, this excursion gave us a good experience of reasonably close-up encounters with a number of majestic African beasts. The vehicle in which you ride through the game reserve is rugged and bouncy. The driver stops numerable times to give us an opportunity to take photos and observe the animals. The visit to the game reserve includes a full tasty buffet. Be advised that this event includes a three hour van ride each way from Cape Town. Kudos to our van driver, Werner, who was friendly and knowledgeable about all things South African. we had good conversations and much laughter with him as we drove.

Melodie was our guide and she was fantastic. The drive to the reserve is as stunning as the views in downtown Capetown. Saw 4 of the Big 5 (leopards are nocturnal so we didn’t see one.) Animals are safe, protected, well cared for. Highly recommend if you are short on time or money.

We have been to Safari before but this one was much better. We were able to see 4 of the Big 5 and from a very close distance. Most importantly our tour guide Mr Werner who picked us up from our hotel in Cape Town, I think he made this whole day truly memorable. He went above and beyond to make us comfortable, stopped us at the amazing farm shop were we had amazing grapes from the farm and recommended to buy Guwava which we did and it turned out to be phenomenal. He was very knowledgeable, very patient and we felt like we've known him for years. When we arrived in the Safari, the weather was cold and windy and he did his best to find us blankets or something we could get from the gift shop. I can't recommend this tour enough as we really had a great trip. Thank you Born in Africa and special thank you to Mr Werner 🙏🏼
