We booked a 2 day safari with Frank because of the reviews seen on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. We were fortunate to see the big five (plus a second sighting of a cheetah) in addition to other animals, birds and reptiles that are part of the Kruger ecosystem. I was impressed with the rapport Frank has with a number... More

We booked a full-day safari with Frank on the basis of previous Tripadvisor reviews, and he more than lived up to expectations. Frank is a friendly guy who's easy to hang out with for the day, and his wealth of knowledge about the fauna and flora of the Kruger is fantastic. We had a brilliant day and saw loads of... More

Thank you for your review. It really makes it so much more enjoyable with a small group who show their appreciation and enjoyment - it is infectious. Watching those lionesses scattering those poor impalas was really cool. Glad they all got away :-) More
