A work colleague and I wanted to experience the wildlife of South Africa as we had never been to this amazing country before. So, we flew in a few days early on a business trip and booked a... More

Malcolm was a fantastic guide. We did the underground tour at Cullinan and it was great. Malcolm is so full of knowledge and a joy to be around. I would highly recommend doing this tour. Make sure to bring a camera, cell phones aren't allowed in the mine!

After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided to engage the services... More

I had one day to visit Johannesburg on my way to Bostwana. Janet picked me up at the airport and took me on a tour of Soweto and Johannesburg. She is incredibly knowledgable of the history and current events of the area, and she has lived there her whole life. She is a highly intelligent and engaging person who wants... More

We went on the most amazing day trip to Pilansberg with Linda. The trip experience went beyond our expectations: Linda and her daughter went out of their way to take us around the park and find elephants which we all desperately wanted to see. They showed respect for the animals throughout our trip and were extremely knowledgeable and informative about... More

We were looking to visit South-Africa and after a while decided to look for a guide. We found Ekala and discovered the Davis family, who arranged an airport to airport twelve day visit to Johannesburg, Krugerpark, Pilanesberg, Pretoria and so much more. We were amazed by the sheer expertise and passion for everything related to and living in South-Africa. People... More
