We wish to confirm what everyone else is saying - Frank Watts is an excellent guide, great guy and fabulous cook! We had a fabulous three days with Frank in Kruger and saw an amazing range of animals including some rare sightings such as wild dogs (2 sightings of 20 dogs in total within a couple of hours), Black Sable...

The reason the Frank is the best is because of his passion for both the animals and the others (humans) in the park. His knowledge of animals, birds, trees is vast. Frank could not believe the luck of the Kiwis from down under as we saw the big five twice in one day, especially when the second time was within... More

You are right, it seems that Kiwis come here with some serious luck. I just finished another safari with New Zealanders and it was also awesome. No wonder my son lives there. I will bring the book next time I come over there :-) More

We are aware that there will be other good safari guides working around Kruger. We went out with others but by far our best trip was with Frank Watts. In fact, in conversation with another guide it became clear that Frank is regarded as 'the best' within the guides fraternity. One said, "Oh, you had the best there. I learned... More

We had a fantastic time with Frank for a full day safari in The Kruger. He picked us up at the appointed time and delivered us back to our villa as promised. We were able to see 4/5 of the Big 5 including a few cheetahs. As previous reviewers have written, Frank is very knowledgeable and hospitable. I would recommend... More

Frank is your host and you will not find a more knowledgeable, likeable and committed guide. With all his life spent in the area he knows it all but still has the enthusiasm of a 20 year old. Go to his web site and choose the day tour or something longer. We had a day tour (6 of us) and... More

My experience at Kruger National Park was absolutely amazing thanks to Frank Watts' ability to bring us across the path of some of Africa's most stunning animals and scenery! It was my first time on a safari and I believe it will be my best safari ever. We saw so many neat things! Frank brought us within meters of an... More

I chanced upon 'The Other Animals Safari' on the net (which in itself is an interesting name). I had no clue that it would turn out to be a great find. I started 'experiencing' their good service even before going to Kruger. Frank Watts and Dianne kept answering my numerous mails with patience and gave me a good idea of... More
