Testimonials

DJ and Kelly Jacobsz
Hi Simon,

We just wanted to write a little note of thanks for an amazing trip to the Kalahari.

It was a pleasure being with a person who is so incredibly organized, totally unflapable and so good natured.

We look forward to sharing an adventure with you in the near future. Take care Regards
Geoff Otter
Hi Simon,

Firstly let me thank you for a great trip, well organized and catered for. I thoroughly enjoyed myself as did Bruno. The company was also great, which possibly contributed to the enjoyment of the visit to Khwai.
Maryke Olding
I am so grateful to my friend for persuading me to accompany Andy on this experience and my initial discomfort was soon dispelled by the super group of people I encountered.

Special brownie points to Simon for being so considerate. The meals, company and scenery was magnificent.

Many thanks again for a great effort, hope to see you all again soon.

Regards
Gavin Pike
Well done Simon, great trip – well organised, well fed and well guided. We will travel with you again.

You made this trip, and we met some really genuine people that we would hope to travel with again.

Simon’s food was better than a restaurant
