We had a fantastic holiday with friends and Duard and the second holiday is already booked. The places that Duard took us to and the itinerary daily was just amazing. 4 x 4 sand dunes and a picnic in the dunes was brilliant. Boat rides to the seals and dolphins Mokoro rides seeing elephants in the water etc etc and mustn't forget the singing in the van along the way. The whole trip was from start to finish so well organized with great lodge selections along the way. A truly magical holiday.

We had the most amazing holiday in Namibia and Botswana. We said we wanted to visit Namibia and see the big dunes and from that rather vague wish, Duard put together the most fantastic private guided itinerary, including activities we probably would not have thought of (quad biking, dune riding, mokoro rides, horse riding etc etc). Everything was arranged perfectly and all we had to do was get up each morning and be ready for another great day of adventure! Duard is a fully qualified field guide/ranger and loved to share his passion for Africa with us. We were due to visit Namibia again with Duard in May this year but due to Coronavirus, our trip has been postponed until next April - counting down the days already! I would highly recommend Makwela Transfrontier Safaris for anyone who wants a fantastic guided trip or just a brilliant itinerary and well kept vehicles for a self drive.

I regularly use the Makwela Transfrontier Safaris and can highly recommend them. In this difficult time it is not yet clear when you can go on holiday again, but you can already think about where you want to go. Have you ever thought about a safari? No? Then you should consider that. I advise you to take a look at what Makwela Transfrontier Safaris has to offer in southern Africa. If you book your safari with him, success is guaranteed. Duard is a qualified guide and ranger, so if you want, he will join you on your private trip / safari for the entire trip. Makwela Transfrontier Safaris also offers guided safaris to all the destinations, your privately guided safaris specialist. Your one stop travel destination partner!

A spectacular journey through Botswana, combining lodges, camping, mokoros (dug out canoes), game drives, excursions, gourmet meals cooked over the fire, amazing wildlife sightings and encounters. Absolutely unforgettable, once in a lifetime adventure. Planning and communication very easy, greeted at the airport with a warm welcome and gifts! All around a 5 Star operation! Can’t wait to plan another trip with Makwela Transfrontier Safaris!
