Whilst working on a horse back safari company in South Africa, 18 years ago, I first heard about The Wild Horses of Namibia and it became a dream of mine to come and see them, on a previous visit to Namibia I realised time limit and distance were not in my favour. Dayne Braine was my guide to the Desert Elephants so I contacted him to see if he could assist me with in a bespoke safari to the South of Namibia, taking in Sossusvlei, Wild Horses, Kolmanscop, Ludderitz, Fish River Canyon and the Quiver Tree Forest and Giants Playground.
Batis Birding Safari and the Braine Family as a whole have surpassed my expectations, minute care and attention to detail whilst organising to cover my itinerary requests and special dietary requirements, I have returned triumphant a dream realised and a new wish list for the future; Etosha and Caprivi.
Sean Braine as my guide, was brilliant, he has an amazing encyclopaedic knowledge of birds as well as a creative eye and technical understanding to assist in developing my personal interest in photography, he was amusing interesting enthusiastic and extremely patient with answering my random questions on diverse subjects from mammals, history, landscape, geography to are we nearly there yet!! I have even purchased a bird guide in preparation for my next visit and I am not waiting 18 years to fulfil this one.
I cannot recommend Batis Birding Safaris and the Braine Family more highly and do not hesitate in recommending them for anyone considering a specific safari to Namibia whether it be birds, wildlife, general interest and photography, Batis Birding, Steve and Louise, Sean and Dayne Braine love what they do and I must say they all do it exceptionally well. thank you very much indeed and I look forward to my two week Etosha and Caprivi adventure.
