He made every effort to ensure all our wishes were met, confirming booking on an open safari truck on our arrival. He also drove us around a different part of the park in the... More

Our guide Barry made sure that the 4 hour drive flew by with his steady flow of useful and intriguing information both about animals and South African culture. The safari itself was beautiful and we saw loads of different animals. Worthwhile for anyone touring KZN.

Booking was really easy and quick. On the day safari we saw plenty of animals: 3 out of the big 5 as well as giraffes, zebras and antelopes. Lunch was lovely and our group and guides were great. The guides were really informative both on our drive up to the park and in the park. Would recommend this to everyone!

The initial online contact with John was professional and friendly, and he quickly finalised arrangements for our day safari. He also confirmed our booking again just prior to the day and provided us with information on our guide Paul, including a contact number etc. Paul was very... More

Once there we were lucky enough to see lions, elephants, white rhinos and giraffes. We spent 6hrs in the park, lunch is spent in the only restaurant in the park (food... More

Our group of seven were thrilled to experience 3 days/2 nights on the Hluhluwe Big 5 Day Safari. Coming on the heels of volunteer activity in Zambia and Durban, we were uncertain what to expect, thus were pleasantly surprised that the low cost of this adventure didn't rob of us the experience of a lifetime. The safari guide was gregarious... More

While on tour with a cricket team, we had a one day opportunity of visiting a game park from Durban. Easy contact was made by email with John and his team and we booked a Big Five day safari. Next time we will define which Protea Umchlanga we were staying at (Ridge not town). The three hour drive north went... More

Wanted a one-day safari and received actually a full one day introduction to Durban, the area and the amazing Zulu culture. It was certainly my money's worth and more. John was my first point of contact and worked very hard to find me a place on my desired day (very busy day). On the actual day Barry with wife Elizabeth... More
