Isac was very kind and showed us lots of beautiful places and adapted the tour to the needs and wishes of our group. He was very punctual with the schedule, which made it possible to see a lot of things between the sometimes long drives. The caves, walk with elephants and addo national park were absolutely amazing. The accommodations (3*) were really good.

Had a great day quad biking. Had so much fun, I even fell off my bike and it was worth it and a big part of the experience. Our guide was also a pleasure, taught us well & took great pics!
