Absolutely unbeatable holiday. We did the two week "On Track Sabi Sands and Kruger Safari" package and found everyone involved in the trip was extremely good, our guides had extraordinary knowledge of South Africa's wildlife.

We returned from an amazing safari in South Africa in late February, after what had been the trip of a life time. We travel to Africa regularly and finally we have found a safari which gave us the chance to enjoy and view wildlife but also to experience the bush. Back on Track Safaris provided a 14 day package which... More

This was our 4th trip to Africa and and we wanted something more involved than just looking at the game. Paperbark is the base for Back on Track safaris and Will and his team gave us everything from animal tracking with their excellent ranger Anton (known as the Leopard man) while based in a large thatched bungalow with solar power...
