Karin Kedem, Germany

Southern Tours & Safaris prepared that tour, that we booked very shortly before, in a perfect way and took care of everything 100 %. Our guide is a great game observer and we saw not only the Big 5 already after a short time. I appreciated his flexibility and admired his knowledge about history, animals, plants etc. A highly recommended guide who will fulfill all your travel ideas and wishes. Read more

Sylvia, Italy

Our guide was not only a very professional guide, but also a very polite, responsable and helpful person, he always did the very best to meet our expectations and to make this trip an unforgetable adventure. He knew the bush very well and without him we would not have seen so many animals. It did not take us much time to see the Big 5!! ​ During this trip we also had the possibilty to learn a lot about African culture. We are looking forward to planning our next trip with Southern tours!! Read more
