I cannot recommen Shelldon, and this tour, highly enough. We've just used hsi services for a shore excursion to Isandlwana and Rorke's Drift while in the port of Richard's Bay. This was a bucket list item for my travel partner and I was happy to tag along in the hope of enjoying some nice scenery en route. Having no real prior knowledge of the region, and my friend's mostly as a result of watching the movie "Zulu", Shelldon's encyclopaedic knowledge of the history leading to this conflict kept us enthralled for the entire three hour journey there. And once on the actual sites, it was all brought to life so clearly. And for the non-military history buffs, the scenery en route was jaw-droppingly beautiful and much more than I could have hoped for. As I said at the beginning, I cannot recommend this trip, and Shelldon in particular, enough! Thank you for a truly memorable day!

Shelldon was an awesome guide. He custumized a 3 day tour for our group of seven friends. He picked us up in Durban and on our way to Hluhluwe we stoped at the Cheetah Rehabilitation Centre to see cheetahs and other cats very close. We did a Game Drive in Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve in the evening and we did more on the next day. We always had the option to do something else or to use the open cars from the hilltop camp. Shelldon told us a lot about Southafrica, Zulu culture and the animals we saw. And we saw a lot of animals like elephants, rhinos or buffalos. On the last day we went to SodwanaBay for diving. It was an excellent spot were we got to see turtles and a shark! As an extra he recommeded a perfect surfing spot in Durban to us. I totally recommend Shelldon as a guide und will definitely do a tour with him again whenever I come back to Southafrica.

Sorry for taking so long to reply. Thanks again for booking, I had a great time with your group, so much so that I'm now considering taking up diving! Hopefully you'll be back to South Africa one day and get to visit the Kruger National park. Thanks again Shelldon

Can’t praise our Guide Shelldon enough. The trip was a great success. Even for those none historians, Shelldon brought to life the unfolding dramas of the day.

I can not recommend Sheldon enough-of Coastal & Country touring- he is outstanding and gave us the trip of our lives. Traveling with my 80 year old mother and 11 year old daughter- he took all concerns off our minds- handled everything and we never felt safer or more engaged. We did SO many tours with Sheldon that I can’t just list one to review bc I feel like we did them all. On our trip he accompanied us on the following itinerary: Thousand Hills tour, Tala Game Park, Zulu cultural experience, Humpback whale watching, St Lucia Hippo Safari, HluHluwe Game Park overnight, Mandela & Gandhi history tour, Thousand Hills Steam Train. He was also always willingly at our disposal to help in the event we needed anything which traveling w children can arise. Sheldon was fantastic and I will only ever use him for any tours in South Africa. He made it fun- and my daughter loved him, even calling him Shelly affectionately by the end of the trip! Thank you, Sheldon, for going above and beyond to make this trip safe,educational, exciting & fun for us ladies traveling alone!
