      HIGHLY-UNCONDITIONALLY RECOMMEND!!!!
      Don't miss the unique privilege and honor of spending a day with Sertorio! His knowledge (lifelong learner), demeanor and exceptional passion for his Calling as a Tour Ambassador is unrivalled, and the best for our entire time in South Africa. If we ever return to South Africa we will hope to have the honor again of spending time with this genteel man.

      Interesting Eswatini!
      Sertorio is lovely and knowledgeable, and he is a very safe driver. Visiting Eswatini on a short day trip was interesting and very worthwhile. On our visit we were able to see the glass factory, Swazi candles, the cultural center, and stop very briefly at Go Rural/House on Fire. The day that we visited, the weather was drizzly and grey, and it was quite dark outside, which apparently contributed to it taking a much longer time than anticipated to get to Eswatini. That meant our time in country was short, so we were unable to see a few of the typical sights on the tour. That’s unfortunate, but safety first is important. We appreciated Sertorio’s focus on safe driving as opposed to trying to haphazardly rush to squeeze in more sights, but it was disappointing not to be able to see all the things we’d hoped to see. Overall, Sertorio is a wonderful guide and we recommend him highly.

      4 days/ 3 nights at kruger
      I took the tour with my girlfriend and it was amazing. These tours consist of a combination of luck and knowledge of the guide, which in our case resulted in a very good experience. We got to see the big 5 up close and even saw some white lions. Would definitely recommend.

      Transfer between Sabi Sands Private Nature Reserve and Eswatini
      Being picked up by Sertorio strict on time at the Lodge where I was staying while at Sabie Sands Nature Reserve for a transfer to Eswatini. While I can only talk about the transfer since I had no other activities or tours being planned with Ntwanano Safaris, I must say that Sertorio is a great driver, a gentleman who took absolute care of me. Arriving at the border with Eswatini, we quickly found out that the other Swazi based company was'nt there to pick me up for the Swazi part of the transfer. As Ntwanano Safaris was just arranged to drop me off at the border, Estorio kept waiting untill he was sure that I was able to make it. He even came inside the immigration office to check that I would be alright. All together we had to wait for almost 1 hour and a half untill the Swazi company send his driver while the ride from the border to my accommodation in Swaziland turned out to be less than 30 minutes away ! Sertorio lost 1 hour and half but did'nt even complained a single bit. He was clearly concerned of my well being. Now, I'm considering to tour through South Africa next year in 2020 and I do know who to contact. Thank so much Sertorio and Ntwanano Safaris and I'm sorry for the late review of your wonderful services. See you again soon for sure.

      Drive from Sabi Sands to Maputo - September 2019
      We were collected very promptly from Cheetah Plains in Sabi Sands by our driver Sertorio in a lovely clean 4WD vehicle - very comfortable and spacious. Sertorio was very engaging and chatty and we very much enjoyed his company. He was very knowledgeable and made the long drive very pleasant. Lots of stops along the way and was very mindful of ensuring we were very ok and got to our destination in good time. The entry process at the border was very easy as we had visas already. Thank you Sertorio and we hope you have many clients travelling with you in the future Debbie and Mark

      Excellent experience!
      We booked an all inclusive package 2-nights/3-days safari with NTWANANO. We were picked up in Maputo by our friendly guide, Sertorio. He was talkative and friendly, and drove us to Kruger and guided us the whole day. Very much enjoyed it. He was experienced, highly knowledgeable and super friendly! The itinerary we were provided was quite general, and there was some confusion regarding accommodation/itinerary and pickups due to this. Nevertheless, we definitely got what we paid for and are very content with NTWANANO.

      WILD TRIP TO MAPUTO
      Went as a group of seven down to Maputo for the day. We had the pleasure of Sertorio as driver and guide. Not only is he well informed and knowledgeable, but also one hell of a nice guy. we partied up a storm and he took it in his stride. I will strongly recommend this company. Also, he is an exceptionally safe driver.

      Day tour from Nelspruit to Maputo
      The best way to visit Maputo safely from Nelspruit. We had the chance to spend a full day in Maputo thanks to Sertorio. Sertorio has lived in Mozambique and thus is an excellent guide to understand the rich history of the city. He picked us up at our guesthouse in Nelspruit and helped us get the border visa after the Lebombo border control. Sertorio was very attentive to our needs and we manage to explore all the city and its landmarks. The places he recommended us have never disappointed us and I am really glad we had the chance to visit this beautiful town with Sertorio !

      Kruger tour- one of the BEST experiences of my life!!!
      I came to Maputo for a two-week school/work trip and decided very last minute to go to Kruger! I contacted several tour groups, but since it was so last minute, Ntwanano tours was the only one that still had availability for a 2day/1night from Maputo. Sertorio helped me organize the trip and it was one of the most incredible experiences I have ever done!! Sertorio was very accommodating and coordinated my ride to and from my hotel in Maputo including the visa process, making it very effortless for me. He secured a place to stay at Satara Camp which is known as the ‘cat camp’ and got me a spot the last spot on the night drive (which was really cool!). The bungalow was clean and safe (included air conditioner, shower, towels, soap, and toilet paper). I saw 10 lions, 2 rhinos, 4 hyenas, 1 genet, countless elephants, giraffes, warthogs, buffalo, etc.! The stars at night were some of the brightest I have ever seen and watching the sunrise the next morning was also one of the most amazing sights! Sertorio is very knowledgeable on all of the animals and surrounding (learned some very interesting animal facts), and overall an enjoyable person to talk to. He also was very helpful with my financial struggle and took me to several ATMs to be able to withdraw enough cash to pay him. As a young female I was a bit nervous before the trip, but never felt unsafe or worried. Going on this tour was one of the best decisions I have ever made!!! Don't hesitate to go!!

      Trip of a lifetime - mind blowing!!
      We booked a 5 days safari (4 days in Kruger + 1 day panorama). First of all let me say Khensani was wondeful and soooo patient with me planning this trip. My plans changed a lot, it took me a while to make up my mind and she never gave up on me. I could not be more happy with what we finally decided on. Then, Sertorio. His skills as a guide are amazing (we spotted the big 5 within the first 24 hrs of our our safari, unbelievable), but on top of that he is a wonderful person, very inspiring. All the work that he does for people with specials needs (ex, tours for the blinds) completely blew my mind. I consider myself lucky to have met him and enjoyed his company immensely. He also was very kind and patient with us, fulfilling all our expectations, and more. I definitely can't recommand them enough, everything was simply so amazing, there is no words for it.

    I really enjoyed this Maputo Day tour from Nelspruit, South Africa. If you are staying in Nelspruit, South Africa you can visit Maputo, Mozambique without staying overnight in Maputo. The tour operator help me to cross the borded. He was my driver, tour guide and photographer. I was able to visit and explore all the tourist spots in Maputo in 1 day. I highly recommend this tour. You will saved a lot of money on this tour.

    Mr Sertorio, our tour guide was very professional and always punctual not forgetting knowledgeable. Upon arrival at Maputo International Airport we found him waiting for us to shuttle us to our hotel. The next day we had our tour of Maputo. He took us to most if not all the places of interest and his knowledge of the area was very impressive. Some of the tourist attractions included: The Botanical Gardens (with Samora Machel's Statue); the white church; the beautiful Maputo train station; the Markets; the Governor's House made from zinc which was shipped from Portugal as well as the murals depicting some of Samora Machel's famous quotations. We also went to the township and the entire experience was an eye opener.
    The day after we went to Macaneta Island where we spend the day. It was a day well spent - the island is really beautiful and the lunch was scrumptuous in particular the fish - my son still salivates when he talks about it.

    Although he couldn't shuttle us back to the airport on our departure as previously arranged, he made sure that he made proper arrangements with the hotel for shuttle services.

    It was an unforgettable holiday made it even better by Ntwanano Safaris.

    We stayed in Nelspruit and saw the posibility of going on a daytrip to Maputo - a city we had never dreamed we'd visit... And it turned out to be a great tour ! Pick-up at our hotel was right on the agreed minute and after a first stop at the Matola museum we got to Maputo. Our guide knew a lot about the place and got us to the most interesting places. Really everything went smoothly !

    Loved it, next time around we'll contact the company again for another tour they offer !

    Visiting Maputo/Mozambique with Sertorio was a great decision in our trip.
    I am not going to comment on the Maputo city itself as this is something you can find in other reviews or websites, but will focus on Sertorio.
    Sertorio's own story is completely integrated with Mozambique and South Africa recent histories, so spending the day with him was an incredible history class.
    Mozambique is a country that has just recently got independent (around the 70s). When the portuguese left, they took with them all the doctors, engineers and teachers with them so the country was left with nothing. To reconstruct the country, the local governement invited Sertorio to be an english teacher there. He went there and not only gave students classes, but was continuosly enhancing his craft by studying in the UK and US to bring the best stuff to this new African country. During his years in Mozambique, he also helped in the fight against the apartheid, so he not only made a difference in reconstructing Mozambique, but got to change South Africa's too!
    This is just a brief of everything you can learn with Sertorio...
    Strongly recommend visiting Maputo with him if you intend to visit Mozambique from South Africa.
