Having first met Frank on safari in 2013, there was no other choice for our return trip the following year. On this occasion we booked directly with Frank AKA The Other Animals safari and the correspondence we received from both Frank and his partner Di was second to none and left us under no doubt that customer service is prime....

John and Liz, thank you for joining me again on safari. And thank you again for bringing your incredible luck with you. After Christmas 2013 I really thought that was it, but we had an awesome trip again this time. Hopefully we can do it again sometime. Take care. More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. I am pleased you enjoyed your safari with Marc. As you say he is a cool guy. Marc does a lot of work for me (when I can get him because he is in demand with other operators) and the guests enjoy his knowledge and enthusiasm. Kind regards from Frank More

Reputable agency that delivers as promised, no nonsense. We went on a safari with 4 guests for a full day with made it an intimate experience. We saw all kind of wildlife and overall really enjoyed the trip. Mark, our driver/guide (young guy with a beard) is cool and passionate about his work and went out of his way to... More

We visited Kruger national park between 24 Dec to 28 Dec, and just completed 3 days of safari at Kruger with Frank. Every day was unique, and on the second safari, we saw the big five and the very rare African wild dogs in less than an hour. That's because of Frank's 25 years of experience at Kruger. We had...

Our safari with Frank was an absolute treat and hands down, the highlight of our visit to Kruger. It's such a pleasure traveling with a guide who is so knowledgable and passionate about what he does. Finding animals on Safari is always a bit of a random chance but Frank consistently knew where to go, both from his own deep... More

Frank was awesome! Such a cool knowledgeable, interesting and friendly guy. It was great to spend the day with him showing us around and explaining everything we're seeing. We saw lions, hyenas, warthogs, buffalo, giraffes, elephants, hippos, and many more thanks to him. Highly highly suggest to book with him.

This company provided us the patience we needed at a price we could afford. Our tour guide was well educated in the animals and had eyes like an eagle. He would spot the animals far away while driving. They picked us up from The Rissington Inn, grab our prepacked breakfast and lunch. Then gave us the tour of a lifetime.... More

We were recommended to use the other Animals Safaris by a ex Krueger safari guide. And lucky we were. Having booked a sharing safari, 3 nights in the park, our party of 3 were the only ones on this trip. This of course made the whole trip more personal. But I am sure it would have been fine with other... More
