Our time in the Kruger National Park was greatly enhanced by having Niel guiding us. He was entertaining and engaging for us and our young children. We saw and learned so much more thanks to his skill and knowledge. A super family experience!

We did a 5-day safari in Kruger. Niel organised the trip really well, he was quite flexible and approachable. We highly appreciated the good communication by email and on Skype. We had a fantastic time and could not have hoped for a better experience!
