The tours you booked for us were excellent. Excellent guides, who certainly 'knew their stuff'. Did you realize that the tours were personal tours, in that we traveled in a car with a driver-guide, and not in a coach with other folk? The guide would stop whenever we asked. We had to buy our own lunch, but each time were taken to somewhere were we had a good choice. We thought they were excellent value for money. If you should book these tours for anyone else, we can recommend Malcolm Lee as a driver/guide and a young man by the name of Jack.
This tour was a joy from the moment we boarded the bus till our guide David, who had become a family friend by this time, dropped us off. It was not of course possible to see everything within the two days and David tailored our visits to places and a pace that suited us. His knowledge of and pride in his homeland came through strongly and we were unable to ask any questions that he didn't know the answer to. From flora and fauna for my wife to the battles of long ago for an old soldier. The vehicle was first class and the driving very safe.
Hi Nic and Beate,
We finished our 4 day trip yesterday and are happy to declare that it was one of the very best times we have ever had. A big "Thank you" for your team at Southern Circle and particularly to our new friend Jac Du Toit. His knowledge about South Africa flora, fauna, culture and history is thorough and we learnt a lot from him. Above all his straightforwardness and unique sense of humor helps.
We will have no hesitation in recommending Southern Circle Tours and Safaris and Jac to all our friends.
Thanking you once again and with Best regards.
Good evening Nic,
I just wanted to give you some feedback on our recent tour with Southern Circle Tours and Safaris.
Our 6 day wildlife expedition was one of the best tours I have been on – and I have been on many tours in many different countries.
A very BIG thank you for a wonderful trip in your country. It was "magic" and I enjoyed it so very much.
Everything happened except being able to see the view from Table Mtn - a very small sacrifice!! I did at least have the cable car ride.
I was very sorry for you that not more people took up the trip - they don't know what they are missing.
We got back home on Friday from Murchison Falls in Uganda. It was a long trip.
Thank you very much for organizing this once-in-a-lifetime trip for us. We enjoyed it all thoroughly. You have a beautiful country; the people are friendly; the food is fresh and delicious and the infrastructure works well. Uganda of course, is more raw.
We were remiss in not filling out the questionnaire and mailing it to you form Joburg. My apologies. I have attached the completed form in PDF.
We returned to Israel from our vacation in South Africa exactly two weeks ago. And we still are excited and full of impressions. Almost every morning Luba and I tell each other about night dreams that again and again relate to Africa.
We had a fabulous time. Everything was spot on. Peter was an interesting person to travel with as well as being a very knowledgeable guide. The lodge was for us something we thought we may never experience on such a short visit. We look forward to our City Tour when we return to Durban

Just wanted to say a big thank you to Jac our tour guide (from the group on the tour from 03/06/14 -07/06/14). Jac is an excellent tour guide that gave us an in depth history into South Africa. His knowledge and passion for the country's animals and plants real shines through. His passion for South Africa is invaluable. Thank you Jac for a wonderful memorable trip.
