Hello Debbie I just wanted to take time to let you know how much I enjoyed the first 4 days of the tour. I was very surprised to see Peter at the airport so early to meet me and to hear I was his only guest. The trip through to Sabie was through some amazing scenery with so much to see. Peter included lots of information about what we were seeing and the SA culture and way of life. Kruger was amazing with two full days of animal spotting and Peters enthusiasm when we spotted animals was infectious. Peter is an absolute gentleman he delivers information in a friendly but professional manner and was very considerate to my mobility issues (my recent knee operation). He turned my trip into an amazing experience which I will never forget. Thank you Peter and Southern Circle.
Please note my change of email address.
Now for the next four days
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 DurbanPeter V
Just wanted to say a big thank you to Jac our tour guide (from the group on the tour) Jac is an excellent tour guide that gave us an in depth history into South Africa. His nowledge 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.Lynettte D
We would like to say how pleased we were with our tour and that David was a fantastic guide. He went out of his way to show us a lot of the country side and the real African life on our way home and we really appreciated his knowledge and company We will certainly recommend your company and David to our friends if required Regards Ann and Robert
People have asked me what my highlight was – and of course it was KRUGER !!!!! still can’t believe how many animals we saw – seeing the BIG 5 – twice in one day was amazing – everywhere we went they all thought that was just unbelievable !!!! Seeing the animals so close was just incredible – the appreciation I have now I can’t describe – you have to see it to believe it. Takis was so patient, his knowledge was amazing and his passion is Kruger. I feel that we came away from South Africa much the wiser and way more knowledgeable and that was down to our driver and guide Takis.Nic J
Well we are back home now and I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for your wonderful safari to Kruger National Park. Our guide was always on time, so very imformative as we asked a lot of questions but he always had the answers for us and if he didn’t he would find out and also he was so passionate about the Kruger park and I know this is his passion – the animals and photography. He was so helpful and a great driver. After spending 4 days with him – when we left I missed him the next day so please tell him he was wonderful (we did). I hope we weren’t too bad from his point of view !!!! So Nic I want to thank you again for everything you did for us – I have passed on your company to a few people already and some I have talked to are wanting to come visit South Africa and I will be certainly telling them how great you were to me and my Dad and recommending them to you. Best wishes Nic and I hope one day to be in contact with you again if ever we are back in your beautiful country.Linda and Dave
It is important that I let you know that Jacques, who we had the pleasure to spend two full days with, is a terrific guide! We had two very enjoyable days, and could not be happier with our time in Cape Town. He is extremely knowledgeable, caring, fun, passionate, and sincere. He is also a great listener, who gave us 100% of his abilities to make sure we had a blast! Thank you for your services.Chuck Banker
We’re back in Canada and still very jetlagged J hopefully that will be over very soon. First of all I would like to thank you and Nic on behalf of the whole group for all the arrangements you have done to make it a very pleasant, successful trip. We’ve enjoyed every minute and so did our Canadian friends. A special thanks to you Beate for your willingness to help us on a Sunday afternoon to get the camp accommodation sorted out in Kruger.Corne
We had once again a wonderful stay in South Africa, to which you all contributed in your own way. Marianne and I would like to thank you again for that! We thought Jacques pulled our leg when he introduced him as Jacques du Toit. This given the fact, we returned to you because of our fantastic experience with Jac du Toit 11 years ago in Joburg/KrugerKwazuluNatal!Eric and Marianne
Jessica and I would like to thank you and your fantastic staff of guides for one of the best trips we have ever taken. We had a fantastic experience from the first day through the last. You are to be commended on the quality and expertise of your guides.Your organization and itineraries were superb. We really feel that we have come to know your country far better than the western media presents it. We wish you continued good luck in your business endeavors and we will certainly recommend you to any and all interested in a South Africa tour. Thanks again for everything.Jim and Jessica
My wife and I would like to express our complete satisfaction and pleasure with the services provided by your firm. In particular, Jac was a most excellent and informative guide…we can’t imagine a better person to lead a group through the tours we arranged. His passion for the history of the country, his knowledge of the Heritage sites and his prompt and courteous service stands alone.
As you may know, a portion of our trip was managed by another tour group and I can assure you without hesitation that Southern Circle Tours will remain our only recommend to others and I intend to use your services for both personal and professional requirements in the future.Dan
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. David was an amazing guide. He was a real gentleman and treated my daughter and I so well. He was knowledgeable not only with animal and birdlife, but the fauna, the geography and the history of your beautiful country. It was a real treat having a personalized tour! If you could please pass on our thanks to David, that would be much appreciated.
Once again – thank you and I hope we are able to use your company again someday!Linda
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.Dilip and Kirti S.
I just wanted to thank you very much for organizing the Garden Route tour last week. It was excellent and exceeded my expectations. Jacques de Toit was a fantastic guide/driver and really helped make the trip – please pass on thanks to him. It was all certainly helped by only having four people (and what turned out to be four very like minded people) on the tour which gave us room to stretch out and of course by your stunning scenery in South Africa. But the standard of accommodation (other than Fish Eagle Lodge) was very high, there was a reasonable allowance for dinner, the recommended restaurants were very good, there was time to relax as well as ensuring that we saw as much of the countryside as we could. All went well in Port Elizabeth and the arrangements for the flight back.
So thank you very much – I will certainly recommend you to others.Veronica F
We completed the garden route tour last week and have been in Capetown for the week. We fly back to Canada tonight via London. We had a wonderful time on the tour with Hanz. He was great and we really enjoyed it. He made it interesting for us and was extremely conscientious about showing us SA and explaining the history etc. We felt he was a good friend when we he dropped us off. He has a good sense of humour and we had a lot of fun. He took us to an extra museum which was above and beyond what we expected. Very thoughtful.
We have friends who want to come next year,one of whom is a travel agent,so we will forward your info. Debbie was extremely helpful also answering my numerous questions.
Thank you again.
Shirley and Robin Toronto Canada.
