Bush and Boat Safari

We had an amazing experience with the bush and boat safari. Both guides were very friendly and went out of their way to make the experience memorable and ensure we saw as many animals as possible. Would recommend it for first-time visitors to the area. Definitely made our trip to the area worry-free.

10/10 Safari

The reserve was more beautiful than Kruger with its rolling valleys and many rivers. Our guide Siyabonga was knowledgeable of the area and knew where to go to find the big 5.
He was also a great cook and we were treated to breakfast and lunch. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone!
