“Bucket list!”

Amazing and exciting experience. This is just like being in a movie!! Everything was perfect, starting with the accommodations and of course the experimented Ranger and Tracker make the whole experience just perfect. I’ve got to see the Big Five in two days! Thanks Guidian and Erik!! I would definitely come back here.

“Unforgettable experience”

Fabulous lodge, great staff. Kids of 7 and 10 loved their kids programme and will remember for a very long time sitting 3 foot away from elephant, lion, leopard ,hyenas in an open vehicle. They are determined to go back.
