Anthony first studied to become an adventure guide before completing his NQF level 4 guiding to become a provincial guide. His love of nature and people, combined with a strong determination to showcase the beautiful country, made for the perfect mix. It helps him to become a passionate and competent tour guide. With over 20,000 hours of guiding under his belt, he has covered many different tour types, from cultural to surfing, wildlife, and hiking.
Rhys grew up on the coast and spent many years visiting the bush. His wildlife knowledge and knowledge of the South African coast line are second to none. This combined with his enormous ability as a host makes him a great guide to ensure you have a magnificent vacation.

Our Guide was Steven. He was great! We could see so many animals, Steven took care of us the whole trip and he is a great cook! :-)
It was very comfortable, that we had our own car.

Four friends and I booked with Endless Summer Tours for a two-day, one-night safari in Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Game Reserve. We were blown away by the entire experience in the best possible way. Our guides, Steve and Sean, were so much fun, informative, and GREAT cooks! We were so lucky we were able to be upgraded to a bush lodge in the park for our one night stay. It was so peaceful to be so far out in the wilderness. On our game drives we saw so many rhinos, giraffes, and elephants. My favorite part of the safari, however, was driving through the beautiful wilderness. Endless Summer Tours was so accommodating - Anthony with Endless Summer Tours even helped us get a last minute tour booked for a day trip to Lesotho for later on during our stay in South Africa. I can't overemphasize how awesome Endless Summer Tours was from the moment I contacted them to book a tour until the very end of our travels. We had an unforgettable experience and will definitely be using Endless Summer Tours for future visits to SA!
Thank you Endless Summer for the other trips I did with you on this holiday, Durban, Oribi Gorge, Phezulu, and the airport transfers. The guides on these, Anthony and Rhys, were great going out of their way to help us. But I must single out Stephen as he helped to make two days even more amazing than I ever thought they could be. I would heartily recommend Endless Summer to anyone. Fabulous company with a great gang whose aim is to ensure you get the best time possible.
Endless Summer Tours provides that "special experience" just for you. All our queries were answered patiently. Payment methods were arranged to our satisfaction. Tremendous personal service. We were met at the airport and taken straight to Saint Lucia and were on a river trip viewing hippo, crocs,Fish eagles and African kingfishers before the end of the evening. Excellent breakfast, fantastic food. Then on to Umfolozi, our indefatigable guide showed us elephant before we even entered the park. Great lodge accommodation elephant and nyala below our balcony, good food, memorable barbecue by starlight and hours and hours of game viewing and animal photo-opportunities with our skilled, knowledgeable and tireless guide.
We took the three-night and four-day tour from Durban to Hluhluwe/Imforlozi and St. Lucia Provincial Parks in KwaZulu-Natal and could not be more pleased. While Hluhluwe or Imfolozi are perhaps not as well known as Kruger, we lost count of the number of game we saw for most species. At times, our SUV was surrounded by an elephant herd. We saw three lions from a distance of 15 meters. We even had a very long and clear siting of African wild dogs, the most endangered. During the evening braais at Mpila, the hyenas had to be kept at bay by shining flashlights in their eyes, a rhinoceros and buffalo, as well as monkeys, baboons, warthogs and impalas wandered through the camp. All this without the crowds of Kruger. In fact, much of the day we saw no other vehicle on the roads, just the wildlife.
Our trip to the Oribi Gorge with our guide Steve was a day to remember. As there were only two of us, plus Steve, this tour was very special. We had enough time at every spot, there was absolutely no rush and Steve was very informative, helpful and nice. Oribi Gorge doesn't seem to be that well-known as there weren't many people around but the trip was definitely worth it, great landscape and great animals to see there.
