Big-Five Safari Full Day Guided Private Transfer from Cape Town
A Game Park Tour to Remember
, Feb 2020
Dave Coxton was excellent company for the two and a half hours drive to the Aquila Safari Park, full of local knowledge and a good conversationalist generally. The Safari Park had modern administrative buildings and caring staff to supply lunch and then the safari. We were guided by Nicholas who was very informative about the animals and had a nice sense of humour whilst keeping us all safe on his safari wagon. We saw four of the big five, as expected the leopards were not to be seen as they are nocturnal. The area is quite barren with few trees for shade therefore the hippos and rhinos were using the lakes to keep moist and cool while the lions used bushes and rocks for shade. Nicholas was well-acquainted with the park and knew where the animals were likely to be seen. The elephants were entertaining as they threw dust over themselves to keep cool. A two and a half hour safari passed quite quickly and the group were left satisfied with the animals spotted. It is either 3100 rand for a couple to enter the park and have lunch or 3500 in high season. To see wild animals up close this was money well-spent. Dave took a different route home which gave us a comprehensive view of the scenery outside Cape Town and also avoided traffic jams that his wife had reported to him whilst we were on safari, a clever move that saved us a load of travelling time. We can recommend Dave and his Born in Africa business as reasonably priced and offer great companionship for the five hours we were together in his beautiful Jaguar car.
We had an amazing day with Mike! He took us through different route on the way forward and backwards, so that we can see as much as possible of different scenery along the way. Ask for Mike when booking and he'll definitely do his best for you to have a great day :) We managed to see 4 out of the Big 5, which was quite amazing. 100% recommend
If you're staying in Cape Town for a short time, this is a great way to experience a safari in one day. Essentially this is a private transfer to and from Aquila Private Reserve (takes about 2.5hrs each way). They also help to organise your booking at the Reserve, which you pay for separately (not part of the cost of this item). The safari itself is a great experience; you can get fairly close to the animals. We were able to see four of the Big Five plus other animals such as Giraffes, Zebras and Ostriches.
In our case, our names were not initially found at the Reserve for some reason, but our guide, James, was able to work things out for us and we were able to join the safari as planned. James was a great guide/driver, providing a good amount of information on Cape Town and South Africa's history on the way to the Reserve and back again. He made sure we were well-taken care of.
Spotting the Big Five—lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, and Cape buffalo—is a priority for many visitors to South Africa and this tour is ideal for those with limited time. Travel from Cape Town by private vehicle, enjoying views of the Breede River, Hex River Wine Valley, and Table Mountain along the way, then join a group safari drive at a private game reserve and enjoy some incredible wildlife-watching opportunities.
Join us on a sightseeing trip to the most south westerly point of Africa in a small group.Comfort as well as a much better personal interaction quality with the driver guide is guaranteed.See the penguins from point blank and get personal with the richest floral kingdom in the world.Pick ups and drop offs are at door to door service.
From the 1st minute, our guide Reuben was a delight. Funny, friendly and incredibly knowledgable. The trip was a great insight into life in the Cape and a must do for first time Cape Town tourists. 10/10

Thanks for a great day. Theulis was the perfect guide, informative and thoughtful ensuring that all our needs were met. There were 11 on our trip, an ideal number to share the day with.

Cape Peninsula Guided Private Day Trip from Cape Town
good relaxing day
, Jan 2020
Mikey the tour guide was really nice. He was very friendly with my kids buying them chocolates and sweets. He was also very professional, he changed the tour to adjust to traffic and busy times At Cape of Good Hope.
We enjoyed the tour a lot.
We booked after reading all the wonderful reviews of Dave, the tour guide. And the tour description said that we would be picked up in a “luxury vehicle”. This vehicle never achieved a comfortable temperature, and we had to have the fan on high all day, so we had a hard time hearing. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, but didn’t want to stick with the planned itinerary. When you travel halfway around the world and set aside a day of your life to have a nice tour (not too mention the expense!), it’s very disappointing to have things not work out....

Private Tour: Table Mountain, Boulder's Penguins & Cape Point from Cape Town
Private Tour the Way to GO!
, Jan 2020
An excellent way to spend a day in Cape Town! Our guide Peter went out of his way to make the day very special and to make sure we got to see and do all of the activities advertised. He had a vast knowledge of SA history and was a delight to be with for the day. We can not recommend this tour enough.

Hermanus Whale Watching shared boat trip and private wine tour from Cape Town
, Oct 2019
This was a great day trip, well worth a visit while in Cape Town. Our guide Danton made sure we had a pleasant time. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. The six course paring menu at Creation wines was amazing. The whale watching was great. It was the first day in four days that the boat went out because the seas were rough. We took Dramamine in advance of the boat ride and were not sick. Others did not fare as well, so take precautions or sit in the lower back portion of the boat where you're less subject to movement (the views are great from there too!). Overall we'd do this again in a heartbeat. Ask for Danton, you won't be disappointed!
Despite some last minute shuffling around, the tour was excellent! Cornelius was fantastic and the company the whale watch was chartered through did an excellent job- whales all over the place and mostly right next to the boat!! The wine tours were just what we were looking for- great wines/ great venues and Cornelius also had a few stops on his own that were particularly scenic- great day!
Lesson learned- I had to supply my contact info for the booking- but we brought my wife's cell phone/ iPad to Africa. Although I had also supplied alternate contact info (hers)- when the local travel group made a significant change to the pick-up time- they only attempted to contact me- not using the alternate info. I hade re-confirmed all the details two days before we left- I believe your local company had not made any arrangements for the whales OR the guide and had to scramble at the last minute...not very professional- but the day was a success!
Spend a day whale watching and wine tasting on this private full-day trip to Hermanus from Cape Town. See migrating Southern Right Whales off the coast of Hermanus from June through mid-December. Sample some of the local wines at two estates.

Private Sightseeing Trip to the Cape of Good Hope and Boulders Penguin Colony
From $89.44 (Price varies by group size )
, Feb 2020
We have spent a great day with Seraphin! He is very knowledgeable about the history and nature of South Africa. He answered all of our questions. He was really interested in interacting with us as we have exchanged on his and on our family and life. A fine person!
We had an excellent tour guide Felix who shared the history of stops along the way along with other historical spots where we were not scheduled to stop. It was extremely windy when we went to the Cape. The sights are beautiful. At the Cape Lighthouse there are baboons. Leave any food in the car or be careful if you purchase takeaway food there as they will steal it from you.
My husband and I had a limited amount of time in Cape Town, and wanted to make the most of our visit. We hoped this tour would be a good way to maximize our experience, and it definitely was. Xavier picked us up at 8 and asked us what we wanted to see during the day, so we didn't end up repeating sites we had already been to. We also had to cut the tour a little short to make a flight, and that wasn't a problem at all - we were still able to see bo kaap, cape of good hope, boulder's beach, and take a 45 minute hike and have lunch before going back to the city. Even more important than the flexibility of the tour was how wonderful Xavier was. He is warm and charismatic and has so much knowledge about South African history, nature, politics, and anything else we thought to ask about. We would highly recommend this tour!
Go at your own pace with this private and customizable program.Have the pleasure of visiting the endangered African penguin at Boulders beach.The private use of a clean and spacious vehicle is guaranteed. The maximum amount of time is 8 hours but we are more than happy to go an extra mile if needs be.

Shark Diving Full Day Guided Private Transfer to Gansbaai from Cape Town
Great Tour but a little misleading
, Dec 2019
We got to see sharks which was awesome! It was so much fun. Our tour guide was so nice and knowledgable. They really went to of our way to make sure we were happy. However, it did say in the description in the tour that we would also stop at one of three places either a vineyard, a hike or visit penguins. We didn't do any of that nor was that even offered to us. It was a long day because the shark place was 2.5 hours away, however I would have preferred that it wasn't even in the description then. I was looking forward to either the penguins or the hike. That was the only downside.
