Ian was a wonderful guide. He knows his species so well and showed us what we should look for. Great watching the humpback whales play in the water afterwards with a hot drink

We booked online and Ian was at Cale Vidal to meet us. There was no communication beforehand other than the confirmation. We rented wetsuits, which I was glad of. The briefing was good and they were obviously very safety conscious. The weather wasn’t brilliant so the water was quite choppy and visibility was poor, but we still had fun and saw lots of fish. The team looked after my children really well which was appreciated as it meant we could look around. The hot drinks after were a bonus.

We had an amazing experience doing this walking safari in iSimangaliso Wetland Park. It was incredible to see zebras and impalas up close and learn about their habits and behaviors from the guides, who also shared stories and insights about the local culture and history. We highly recommend this walking safari to anyone who loves nature and adventure. It was a touching and thrilling adventure that we will never forget.

Had the walk tactually taken place, it may well have been amazing, but it didn't happen.
I had booked the tour a week before it was due, and had got in touch with the company a couple of times following that, including 24 hours immediately beforehand to finally confirm meeting arrangements. This was done, though differed to the information on the booking as to the meeting place. Also, the directions were to Kingfisher Lodge / Igwala gwala Forest entrance, neither of which we knew but, hey, St Lucia is a small place.
We arrived dead on time, but our guide - Ian - was not there. After a few minutes, we went to the Lodge reception and they, very helpfully, tried to get in touch with Safari and Surf. (I had also tried the cellphone number supplied, without success.) Eventually, my husband and I set off on the forest walk by ourselves. On returning, we were told by the Lodge manager that the comany had phond to say there had been an "emergency" of some sort. No one tried to phone me. A bit later, I received a Whatsapp to apologise

Good day Val, Thank you for your review. Big apologies again for such a bleak experience with us.. We are really sad about this as it is not a true reflection of who we are..

We had an incredible time. Ian met us at the meeting point. The equipment used for the snorkeling was sanitized and readily available for our use. We had a lovely cuppa after our snorkel which was just incredible. Visibility was fantastic and such a variety of marine life to be seen. Highly recommended!
