Sotiris (our tour guide) was amazing! He was flexible and willing to customize our tour. My boyfriend and I am big animal lovers and we did not want to support any breeding facilities or so-called rehabilitation centers that were just tourist traps and he was very honest about them. We felt that he really cared for our needs and even... More

My visit to Shakaland was absolutely amazing. It was like an out of this world experience. The people that work there was so kind, friendly and really treat you like royality. The African experience was just what I needed to know about our South African history.

This was my fifth trip and I was as happy as always. Been to St Lucia and stayed the night in Hluhluwe. Saw four of the big five and managed to get away from an angry elephant, all thanks to our excellent and skillful guide Sotiris. I, and my 11 year oldson, highly recommend going with this excellent touring company.... More

When I learned that the concierge was planning to simply put me in a car with a taxi driver (ie not a real certified guide) I cancelled the 'tour'. I called Sotiris after... More
