Testimonials

  • Review by Joyce and Peter Buckman from UK

    "To say we enjoyed our safari is an understatement. It was fantastic! We saw over 30 different animals including the Big Five. The disabled facilities for Joyce who is a full-time wheelchair user were excellent. We also visited Sabine and Alfie's B&B which again offers first class facilities for disabled travelers visiting the Cape Town area. Alfie, a big hug and thanks for a really memorable holiday."
