Ian was great and patient especially as my youngest daughter was nervous. Once in the water, we had a blast. We didn't use wetsuits because it was a hot day (34C) and the water temp was also warm. However, you do get close to rocks etc and I think wetsuits would be a good idea to prevent scratches and cuts. I suppose it depends how deep you go. Also follow the advice given by the team- get there a little earlier and enjoy the whole Cape Vidal experience. The water was crystal clear with no large waves although we warned about currents further out. The hides in the park are well maintained and we spotted hippos and many bird species. We also saw a white rhino about 5 m from the road as we drove back.

Saw impalas, mongoose, birds and an inquisitive hyena on a pleasant walk through the light, warm rain.

Sometimes it's good not to be cooped up in a car.

Thank you for the lovely review Nikolai

We are glad that you enjoyed the Guided Walking Safari and got to see a lot! Nature is amazing when you slow down a bit and yes it is a very different experience from a regular game drive indeed.

We hope to have you back again for another adventure.
Safe travels.

Last minute booking with Ian and the team and it was fantastic. Ignoring the early drive to Vidal (which is a blessing for those who love wildlife spotting) when we got there Ian was friendly and helpful in terms of what happens next. He explained the processes, any concerns and safety and we were off. We saw a multitude of under water life and Ian being keen eyed spotted a lot of rareties which we could enjoy. Honestly having him there just made the experience a lot of fun without any stress and actually made our use of the beach afterwards even more relaxed.

We had an awesome snorkling trip in the so called aquarium in Kosi Bay. Cristal clear water and so many different species to see. Rick was really nice, explained a lot and answered all our questions. After the snorkel he took time to discuss the sightings with a warm coffee. We enjoyed it very much and recommend to do that snorkling when visiting the area of Kosi Bay (Kosi mouth). Thanks Rick for that experience 😀
