The tour was great, we saw hippos, crocs and even and elephant. The problem was I booked and paid for a private tour. At the last minute it was changed to a 10 person group.

As with every group tour, one couple was 15 minutes late, no apologies and the woman could not have been sicker. No mask on the ride out, the guide made her put one on on the way back. She ruined the trip and never apologized for anything. I am sure we will all be sick after being in a small space with this woman for 3 hours. So rude.

We did several tours with Teshni. She was wonderful to communicate with and make our trip special. She went above and beyond to make sure our group got the most amazing experiences. I would highly recommend her company to make your trip more memorable.

Unfortunately the weather was not good this day. It started with us getting picked up 30 minutes late in rainy weather. We did see a lot of Hippos, but no crocodiles.

Home to Africa's Big Five- we saw elephant, Cape Buffalo, lion, and rhino on our safari. We did not see leopard but met people that saw three in the early morning on the day we traveled.

This was one of a number of privately arranged tours we had whilst on a Norwegian Dawn cruise.
Under African Skies were great communicators, not helped by me leaving my mobile in the car at Heathrow! Anyway, we joined our small group trip with our helpful and knowledgeable guide for the drive up to the park.
There were a number of boats of different sizes operating from the jetty and we were quickly loaded on to one and set off up the lake. It did not take long to reach the first of three family groups of hippos we saw on our trip along with a shoal of catfish and various birds. Unfortunately we did not see any alligators. We also did not see the Coelacanth that the guide on the boat claimed was living in the lake, hardly surprising as they are only found at depths of 1500m in the ocean!
On return to the bus the guide drove us to an outdoor market where we were able to purchase some locally produced nicknacks along with the usual selection of mass produced carved hippos, alligators wall hangings etc. One of the group purchased a very large carving of an elephant head which did look quite impressive and stimulated a conversation about how they were going to get it home.
The whole trip lasted well over 4 hours and would have been even longer had we opted to stop somewhere for lunch. Overall a vey good experience and we are quite happy to recommend Under African Skies.

Brilliant well organised day. We were on board a cruise ship, but there was good communication to ensure we knew when to meet and where when we disembarked the ship. The guide was superb, and was very informative as we were travelling to the park. Once in the park he worked really hard to make sure we saw as many animals as possible. Breakfast and lunch were provided, and were superb and home cooked. Thoroughly recommend this tour.

We were not disappointed. We saw lots of hippos and birds but missed the crocodiles.
One hitch as we were supposed to pay entrance fee at the park. No cash allowed. Crefit cards okay. Our credit card was charged but we were told it was not. Glad we called our credit card conpany otherwise we woulf hsve been charged twice. Not the fault of the tour operator but of the park. Just a heads up for others

Teshni is a very professional and personable guide and host. She worked with our group to customize tours based on the time we had in port and our interests. She had excellent recommendations and responses to all of our queries, and went above and beyond to make sure we had an excellent experience. I highly recommend her services.

We had a great time with Daryl, lots of conversation about the area and living here. We saw plenty of hippos and the boat captain was excellent at pointing out the wild life and telling us about it.
We feel we have learnt a lot more about South Africa and thoroughly recommend Under African Skies.
