We cannot praise Tim enough for what was surely an experience of a lifetime. We had planned at week long stay near Durban and decided to book Tim Brown Tours for a two-day trip to Hluhluwe–iMfolozi Game Reserve.
We opted for the two day trip, compare to a one day tour, because it would give us a more relaxed and less stressful experience, and in hindsight it was a wise decision, although if you only have a single day it would still be an experience you should not miss out on. The two days means a more varied tour and in Tim's company it is both compelling and a great laugh. He has a great knowledge of both the animals and nature, but also of the history and cultural aspects of South Africa.
We got to see lions, elephants, rhinos, giraffes, buffaloes and bavians - all extremely close - the lions and elephants approx. 2½ metres away! On the second day after our morning drive and breakfast we went to Lake St Lucia for a boat trip where we say crocodiles and hippos.
We spent the night at Hilltop Camp in Hluhluwe–iMfolozi which is a very nice lodge with friendly staff and good facilities.
All in all this was by far the highlight of a very good vacation in South Africa. We hereby give Tim Brown Tours our highest recommendations.
