The staff were very welcoming and accommodating. Our ranger jack was absolutely fantastic and a real credit to the Shanwari Reserve. The passion, enthusiasm and fantastic knowledge was second to none. There was nothing he didn't know continued to provide information from the plants to the animals and threw in some astronomy information for good measure. Great interaction with his clients made us feel welcome was thoughtful and considerate to those who may have been nervous or new to the group built trust up very quickly therefore made us feel more comfortable and enjoy the experience more. The element if suspense made the experience even more exciting. We would appreciate it if he was recognised by the management team for his performance. Thanks for a great adventure Rebecca and Naz
If we were to provide constructive feedback I would readjust the feedback cards so that the criteria for feedback incorporated excellent and refrain from using "above average" suggestions would be poor average or excellent if you want a real factual feedback
