We had a wonderful trip and we're so thankful to Hank at Ulungele Tours! I was unsure about hiring a private driver and guide, but it was a great experience. Hank was very knowledgeable about his country. He is easy going, kind and respectful and he worked hard to make sure our holiday was great. We toured Cape Town and the Cape of Good Hope with him. Then we spent five days together on the Garden Route. He knows this area intimately and showed us all its splendor! We wanted to do some things that weren't on the usual itinerary and Hank had no problem accommodating us. We enjoyed our chats with him and learning about his country and culture. Travelling with Hank made our trip more enjoyable and relaxing. And he is willing to stop anytime for photo ops!!! lol I'd highly recommend engaging Ulungele Tours! You'll be glad you did :)

Hi Gerri Many thanks for the glowing review that you have written for us, very much appreciated. It was an absolute pleasure taking you around Cape Town and The Garden Route and I have learned quite a lot from you as well. You have certainly surprised me with the activities that you have done and off course of which you have enjoyed, especially the sand-boarding trip. Making sure that all guests enjoy and have an awesome time, is my part and keeping up to that promise is something that I will keep!! Kind Regards Hank Daries Owner - Ulungele Tours and Safaris

We spent a great two days with Hank touring the Cape Peninsula and Winelands. We found Hank to be very knowledgeable, personable and very honest. In short, we had a wonderful time and we give Hank our absolutely highest recommendation. If there were six stars, he would deserve them!

My husband and I spent a 2 week vacation in South Africa with extended family. Hank was our tour guide. This is my first travel experience with a guide accompanying us and I really appreciated it. The tour was great, well planned and tailored for us. Hank was very knowledgeable, and made everything easy. A lot of planning goes behind an easy experience! He's also a good driver.

We appreciated his professionalism and his insights of the people and culture.

This is Hank’s most popular tour and it’s easy to see why. It’s a full on day punctuated with history (apartheid, the Cape, geology and wildlife). He’s super knowledgeable and keen to share.

He took us to many interesting places (Simonstown, Boulders beach, Cape Point, Cape of Good Hope, Chapmans peak) amongst others.

He was patient and took his time to explain everything.

We would have no hesitation booking him again and strongly suggest you do the same for any tours of the Cape.

Hi Paul Many thanks for your review that you have written for us, much appreciated. We did spend quite a memorable day around The Cape Peninsula especially the hike down to The Cape of Good Hope. I know that will go down as quite a memorable day between you and your wife. But at least, you can tick it off your bucket list that you have done it and you have survived it. All good, many thanks for your support and also the recommendation of which I hope that I can connect with as well. Thank you once again.

Hank our guide was amazing. He was like a walking encyclopaedia, so knowledgeable about the places we visited and the local history. Would definitely recommend this trip to get the most out of a trip to Cape Town.

Booked Hank and Ulungele on a recommendation from a friend; I wanted to introduce Cape Town and the Western Cape to my immediate family to include all the essentials in one week. So glad I did; Hank helped me plan the itinerary and then executed it in a pitch-perfect way. From a walking tour of central Cape Town, to drives to Cape Point, Simons Town and the penguins, to a safari at Aquila and a picnic at Boschendal, all were carried out in style with charm, punctuality and incredible erudition by Hank, the perfect guide to the Cape and its many wonders.

We have spent two beautiful days in Cape Town with Hank and I can’t recommend him enough. Hank took us to the vineyards and we visited the whole Cape Peninsula.

His energy is something that is not easy to forget. When I travel I usually pay so much attention to people, and I must say he is the highlight of my whole trip to Africa. He was kind, patient, professional, knowledgeable, friendly and so much more.

Book your South African adventure with Ulungele, you will not regret.

We had the pleasure of a 2 day tour with Hank. We had been recommended Hank by some friends and from the initial contact it was a breeze to deal with him. The actual tours were fabulous. Hank has so much knowledge and passion for his country. We highly recommend Ulungele Tours.

Hi There!! A heartfelt thank you for the support. It was an absolute pleasure taking you around our beautiful country side, although it was a small portion of South Africa, but maybe next time we can extend the visit and explore more. Many thanks once again!!

My husband and I just returned from a 2 week trip to South Africa. The first week we were on Safari in the northeast part of the country; the second week we flew to CapeTown.

Prior to leaving on the trip, I did much research on tour guides in Cape Town and as a result came upon a great review of tour guide Hank, founder of Ulungele Tours and Safaris. What a great “find” he was. As a result, we contacted him via email before we left on our trip as we had many questions, as you might imagine. Hank couldn’t have been nicer and more patient answering everything we threw at him.

Upon finally meeting him at our hotel we spend the entire day touring, with him as our guide, as he drove us in one of his clean, first rate vehicles from Cape Town down the peninsula to the Cape of Good Hope. He is/was so friendly and knowledgable on all subjects about his native South Africa. He was our history, geography, and sociology professor all in one.

Pricing was excellent; well worth the time he spent with us. Door to door service with refreshments inside his vehicle. He allowed us to spend as much time as we wanted at each of his suggested stops. In fact, he took us to a really nice restaurant in Simonton for lunch on our drive back.

So, if you’re thinking about visiting Cape Town and are in need of an A-1 tour guide to help you navigate all the sites that CP has to offer, your fist and only choice should be Ulungele. And be sure to ask for Hank.

Hank is an amazing tour guide who made our trip to South Africa very special. He set up an itinerary which encompassed everything we wanted to do over the week and really tailored our experience to our interests as the week went on. Such a lovely man, he taught us so much about Cape Town, the country and the people.

I fully recommend Ulungele tours to anyone visiting Cape Town. Choosing Hank for your tours will be the best choice you make, other than choosing to come to South Africa in the first place.

Thank you Hank, all the best with your future plans!
