Our guide was amazing. He was very friendly and told us slot about his culture, so interesting. We saw unbelievable small frogs to Elephant’s and a gracious Rhino, so close we nearly touched it.

Thank you so much for this lovely review! Sakhile is a great guide! Always special to hear about the Zulu culture from a true local and his eyes are like the eyes of a hawk! Sakhile is also known as the Chameleon wishperer, as he always knows to spot them as well as the little beautiful frogs! Hope to see you again!

We have just returned from our second adventure with Rick and elìse, but this year with our daughter jade and her husband Harry.
It takes us about 20 hours to get here from England, but boy is it worth it, everything thing they do comes from the heart, the snorkeling trip is the highlight of our trip, in fact so good we did it twice, somewhere between 80 and 100 varieties spotted all in total safety.
We found ourselves constantly calling rick and Simon over with what's that one and that one?
from them, not really knowing what to expect, food was delicious
Acomodation was sublime beautifully constructed, private and relaxing.
We also went on the bird walk, right on our doorstep beautiful unspoilt countryside. We have been to an awfull lot of beautiful locations but this is our favourite.
All made possible by this gorgeous couple.

Dearest Anton and Clare, Thank you so much for this amazing review! It again was a pleasure hosting you and also meeting a part of your family! Time for us to start building the next Forest Hideaway unit in Kosi Mouth and for you to bring the whole family! Looking forward to that one!
Warm regards, Rick, Elise and Maya

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.
