Technically the tour was okay the price is amazing and the park is awesome. Sadly though the provider arrived 30 minutes late and didn't have any knowledge of the animals so he was only able to drive, not act as a guide.

Wouter D, Sep 2017
We had a great safari. Our guide was very good at spotting animals, perhaps with the exception of birds. During our full day private safari we saw elephants, buffaloes, crocodiles, jackals, deer, peacocks and turtles. The tour was a wonderful experience. The breakfast and lunch were very good. The jeep could use some maintenance, and if the guide could speak better English he could probably inform us better about what we are seeing.

Robin K, Jul 2016
This tour was absolutely amazing!!!! The driver was spectacular. He was experienced and knew where to go and what to show us. He wanted us to have the best experience always on the look to see where the animals were and taking us to parts of the park that were so beautiful it took your breath away. We took the full day tour and it is by far the best way to see the park. It was a high lite for our entire family.

Tour guide was creepy. He kept touching me whenever he would try to show me something. It made me feel very uncomfortable. But otherwise if you are a dude or a girl thats not alone, this tour would be great. Guides were very knowledgable with identification and species information.
