Mention Sue Dean to anyone in the country who is interested in plants and nature and they know who she is. Impressive and well-deserved. Sue led my botanist clients and I on a wonderful guided walk around her private reserve and we were thrilled. Without her, we would never have noticed many of the plants and we would certainly not have learnt much just looking alone. Sadly, the current drought is causing much harm and Sue is visibly upset to see this, but next year the rains should come and all will be good again.

I recommend this tour to anyone - not only those with a specialist in plants - because many people think the Karoo is dull and this reserve, with Sue's knowledge, will change the way people perceive the Karoo.

Thanks Sue!

It was a real privilege to take a walk through the Wolwekraal Nature Reserve together with Sue Milton. Learned a lot from her about the plants and animals in the Prince Albert area.

This walk was fascinating and it made me really see the Karoo and all its beauty through different eyes. Sue's love for all things natural is inspiring and I learned so much from her. I will definitely go again when next in Prince Albert as there is just so much more to see and learn. I highly recommend this walk for any nature lovers.

Dr Dean knows her subject and takes you on an interesting walk. It was informative, but I would say, imho, somewhat dry, humorless, too academic. `if you are staying in Prince Albert for more than 2 days, thid tour should be on your list "to do"

We were a large group from the Plettenberg Bay Bird Club and were taken out on an inspiring informative wander through the reserve with Dr Sue Milton Dean sharing her vast kknowledge of Karoo plants & animals small & large. This is a outing not to be missed by nature lovers a definate value for money. As my husband & I were travelling to Tankwa the following day this added a new perspective and enriched our stay.
