We stayed in Tembe Elephant Park and met Themba at the gate for birding in the area. It was an amazing experience! Not only is he a birding expert, but he also knows the area well and have connections and we could not have seen so many new species without him. We are alteady planning our next trip. Thank you!!

It was great!!! Themba knows everything there is to know about birds, even how to call them by whistling. Thanks to him we saw lots different species and ended up with great fotos. We even saw rare birds (in St Lucia) thanks to Themba knownig every bird call like the Southern banded snake eagle and the spotted groundthrush. He also gave us accurate tips about were to see birds. A completly recomendable experience!

Themba was amazing. We saw great birds in St Lucia and his knowledge and expertise is very impressive. We saw Livingstons Turaco, Grey Cuckooshrike, Rudds Apalis, Green Malkoha, Klaas Cuckoo, Red Billed Firefinch and many sunbirds. I highly recommend going on a walk with Themba!

This seats very well with me and even nourishes my Soul if service delivery supercedes your expectations. It's also for this very important reason that I still continue to groom Youth as future touristguides and conservation leaders so that our Birdlife & wildlife always remain intact for the present and future generations. Your support to come and experience our birdlife in particular really make such a huge contribution towards birds conservation as well as our local guides livelihoods. Thank You!

My daughter and I went with Themba for a full day birding trip on 16 July 2022. This was really an outstanding experience! Themba is a master bird spotter! We are bird photographers and thanks to Themba we managed to get good shots from the Pink-throated Twinspot, the elusive southern Yellow White-eye, Square-tailed Drongo, Lemon-breasted canary, Red-backed manniken, Black Cuckooshrike, Grey Waxbill, Pale flycatcher, Yellow-breasted Apalis, Yellow-throated longclaw, various waterbirds, and the highlight of the day, beautiful photos from the southern banded snake eagle. Thanks Themba, for a wonderful day!
