I traveled with Brian of Open Skies in one of his awesome vehicles ('the Beast') from Joburg to Kariba over December 2010/January 2011 and it was almost certainly one of my top travel experiences. Brian's charisma and hugely entertaining personality and the comfort and reliability of the Beast played a major factor in the success of this trip and I... More

I travelled with Brian Masters of Open Skies Wilderness Expeditions to Zimbabwe in December 2010, and it must rank as one of the best trips I've ever been on. Not only is Brian an incredibly organised and amazingly knowledgeable guide (if you want to know anything about the bush, he's your guy), but he's also hugely energetic and funny. As... More

I went on a 9-day trip to Zimbabwe with Brian of Open Skies Wilderness and a bunch of friends. Brian absolutely made the trip. He drove us 1000s of kilometres in his customised Land Cruiser (aka the Beast) and proved to be an experienced bush guide whose knowledge of the bush is seemingly limitless. The laughs never stopped with Brian... More

My experience with Open Skies Wilderness adventures was unparalelled. Whilst I always felt completely safe, and accompanied by an expert who's knowledge of the wildlife and the region seemed bottomless, I also felt like I was on an adventure that no one had ever experienced before. I will certainly be using Open Skies again, I just wish it could be... More

We have just returned from an amazing 17 day trip with Open Skies to the Kruger, Timbervati and the Kalahari Transfrontier Park. Having been to Timbervati twice before we were slightly unsure of how we would find/enjoy the Greater Kruger but those worries were soon dispelled. The crowds of people which we had always imagined in the Greater Kruger were... More

I've spent a lot of time in the bush staying in a variety of accommodation from camping to luxury lodges. Never have I felt more at home than with Open Skies. With Brian, its like being with an old friend. Relaxed and with lots of laughs. Brian's ability to spot and track game is unbelievable. Its like he's in tune... More

We had three amazing days in Timbavarti with Open Skies and Brian and Dean were absolute stars. Brian's knowledge of both the game and the environment was outstanding and we were lucky to see baby leopards, the nine month old white lion cubs and hyena cubs as well as adult leopards, lions, rhino, elephant, buffalo, giraffe, etc. Which was not...

Was fortunate enough to do my first trip to the bush with Open Skies. Brian's passion for the bush is contagious and his experience is evident. As the title to this review suggests, Brian and Open Skies opened my eyes to the wonders of the Kruger Park and already I'm planning my next trip with them. Brian's intricate knowledge of... More

I can’t overdo my enthusiasm for the safari organised by Brian and Dean. They tailored the activities and budget completely to our needs, providing non-stop, fascinating information about S.A.’s animals, plants and politics, as well as factoring a 10-year old’s football & rugby obsessions into the city transfers. Evenings watching “bush TV” (the camp fire) with large quantities of delicious... More
