What a great experience! We have booked Wayne as our guide for the private Safaris in October and it was the best decision. So many great animal sightings! Wayne knew all the spots and places where to go so we had a fantastic time in the bush. We really enjoyed his cooking skills and the sundowner drinks. If we will ever come back to ZA we would definitely book Wayne as our guide again. Best wishes from the sisters from Germany!

This was my first time in South Africa and on a Safari,
but I don't think it could be better. Our guide and Ranger Wayne shows us so great, interesting and beautiful places. It was a great experience and I when I come back I would only do thus trip with him again.

We spent 2.5 weeks on safari /touring South Africa with Wildtrackerssafaris/Ocean and Vine Adventures & Tours and had an amazing experience. Our Guide, Wayne Donaldson, was fantastic. He has deep knowledge of Cape Town, including the Garden Route and is experience as a safari guide is the best. Wayne exceeded our expectations in every way and provided the 6 of us with a trip of a lifetime. All accommodations were exceptional, including restaurants and meals prepared in camp. Wayne's knowledge of the bush and animals was such a gift to our overall safari experience. Thanks to Wayne for providing outstanding hospitality and preparing a tour that exceeded all our expectations.

Wayne exceeded our expectations in every way! The three weeks we spent in South Africa with Wayne flew by. All of the accommodations, meals and adventures that we had with Wayne from Cape Town, the Wine Lands, Garden Route, Walker’s River Camp and Eagle Owl Camp were beautiful and very comfortable. Wayne is a phenomenal tour guide, driver, cook, grocery shopper and photographer. No matter how hard you look you will not find a more knowledgeable guide to Kruger Game Reserve. His fantastic sense of humor kept the four of us laughing. This was the best trip that we have ever been on and we have traveled the world. Thanks, Wayne, for the trip of a lifetime!

Wow! Wayne was an amazing guide through the Timbavati Nature Reserve. He always had us in the right spot at the right time! Seeing all of the animals ( elephants, lions, leopards, hyena, Buffalo, porcupine etc) up close and personal was such an awe inspiring experience. We even saw a pack of wild dogs, twice! Not only did Wayne guide for us but he made sure we were well fed. An amazing cook as well! I am so grateful to him and Respect, our tracker, for all that they did to make our trip such a memorable experience. Thank you! ❤️

Hello Jen, Thank you so much for a great review!! I really enjoyed guiding you and your family on this safari. As you know with all our Elephant sightings I think they where all coming to say their good byes to a very special man who left us to early. This safari will always be a special one to me, having met Eugenia as well and knowing all about her passion for animals and birds around the world. Not to mention the pack of 37 wild dogs with their 19 puppies !! Till next time Regards Wayne

We spent the most amazing 4 days with Wayne at Walkers River Camp. We would highly recommend Wayne for a true African experience. He went above and beyond our expectations, especially as we were 3 generations, starting from 7 to 72 years. His knowledge, patience and expertise is incredible. We would recommend him to South Africans and tourists visiting SA. Thanks Wayne for everything.

We were invited guests to Walkers Bush Villa in the Timbavati reserve in July 2019. Thanks Wayne for always finding something spectacular to look at....Leopard (twice) Elephants...soooo many of them and the Lions....to name but a few. Great to have an experienced ranger to learn from on every trip...be it early morning game drives or sundowners. An incredible experience with wonderful memories made.....I think we will all be waving at the Giraffes for many years to come (ha ha ha). Thanks Wayne, much appreciated!!

We went back to the Timbavati Reserve to give our kids an authentic ‘African Safari’ experience, as well as spend time with our friends. We stayed at Walkers Bush Villa for 5 wonderful nights and Wayne was our guide and cook (we loved his chicken curry potjie). Memories of awesome sundowners, crisp early morning drives and the abundance of wildlife with superb sightings will stay with us forever. Wayne did not disappoint with our game drives nor the photos he took to remind us of our special time there. We will certainly be back...sooner than later! Thank you Wayne (my son did not want to leave!)

Wayne hosted my family during 3 great days at the Walkers Bush Villa. We were a quite diverse group with ages between 7 and nearly 80 and we all fully enjoyed the experience. Both at the camp and the bush Wayne did a great work and we all left thinking we should repeat at some moment.
Among several top sightings I would highlight wild dogs fighting hyenas for the leftovers of a kill, several leopards hanging on trees and huge buffalo herds coming for a drink.

Hi Daniel, Many thanks for such a great review, and sorry for the late response ... just been a bit busy!!. It was really awesome to meet you and your family, and really enjoyed been able to guide you around on your safari in the greater Kruger National Park, at Walkers Bush Villa. We where really lucky with some great sightings, and that's what makes a safari out here so great, is that you just don't know whats waiting for you around the next corner. Until next time Keep well Regards Wayne
