I really enjoyed both the marine and the land-based part of the Big 7 Tour, watching elephants, buffalos, zebras, penguins, dolphins and even whales!

We did a Big 7 -safari in October and saw more animals than we expected. Seeing whales on the marine safari was amazing, even though we missed the dolphins. It was a great experience and I recommend it if you have time only for a one day safari.

What an incredible day. We never went 15 minutes without seeing something exciting! We saw 4 of the big 5 plus so much more. Luke was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating, as well as simply good company! The vehicle was comfortable, and we were picked up and dropped off directly from our lodging in Port Elizabeth. Definitely recommend, without a doubt.
