I had a fab day with Alan at Addo Elephant Park. His genuine love for the wildlife and incredible knowledge (he was able to answer all of my questions, and I asked a lot of questions) made for an inspiring day in a beautiful part of the world. Well worth it!

We booked at fairly short notice and were driven by Alan's wife Angelika around Addo Elephant Park. Alan was driving another small group and was able to share information on where animals could be found and so we didn't miss much. A chance mention of Lighthouses resulted in a half day tour being booked to visit the Cape Recife lighthouse... More
