Feedback from Tour participants (Longer, Scheduled and Customised tours):
"A big thank you for a great trip with so many birding highlights thanks to your skills and good company, and everything ran so smoothly with an excellent choice of sites and places to stay. Checking through all my lists on the flights back I calculate I had 145 new species (ie about 50% of the bids were new) which was more than I expected...
Dr Paul Thompson
"I've been able to enter my Botswana list into the South African spreadsheet (attached), and see that we managed 157 species in the 4 days + another 5 during the conference, and that 41 (forty one) were new for my African list. So I'm very pleased!
"We are now back to Belgium after 3 weeks exciting birding in SA. Ca 320 species, 2/3 of them we could watch thanks to your skills. We thank you again for your patience and professionalism that enabled us to find our way into the rich fauna of SA.
Bernadette and Roland
"Thank you very much for having taken us for the bird watching trip. It was excellent, and I enjoyed it very much. It was very nice to see all these different habitats and associated birds. I saw 290 species of birds and 35 species of mammals, which is amazing.
Thank you once again for your fantastic co-ordination and I hope I will be able to see you again."
"Accomodation was at just the right level, Buffelsdrift & Kurisa Moya top performers! The Catering was again at the right level, the rythm perfect (very important in fact!). The itinerary was perfect. Timely and planned, arrivals as scheduled, no surprises! No concerns about security on the Eastern Leg, and the guiding was very good... Birds: Very Well!"
Knut Arne Nygard
"Thank you again for this wonderful trip…. Everything was perfect."
Jean and Denise Jean Léveillé
I am writing on behalf of us both to express our thanks to you for leading an excellent, albeit short trip in the Gauteng-Mpumalanga area. For the two of us, it not only was an exciting introduction to Southern African bird species in general but we had the benefit of experiencing some pristine habitats and the bonus of regional specialities and endemics....
Thank you again - it was a priviledge to be with you.
"So the whole South Africa trip was a resounding success. We had a SUPER time. Many, many thanks again to you for the spectacular start! I think I got 205 new birds in the five days with you, and seeing 90 on the first day is a personal record that will be hard to beat."
"I was very happy with the itinerary, localities and pace - just what I was hoping for... I was very happy with the quality of the guiding....Satisfied customer - would gladly go birding with you again."
"Thanks again for all your help, It's been a real pleasure birding with you."
"I must express my gratitude to Etienne Marais for his splendid work as a guide during my trip…" Ron Nelson, Holland
Ronald R. Nelson
"Just a short note to say thanks for providing an excellent two days birding. It certainly was a great way to finish what has been a wonderful birding holiday. Our final tally for 3 1/2 weeks was 485 species seen with a further 6 heard, far beyond our expectations for this time of year in South Africa."
Nick and Shiromi Davies
The birding was phenomenal - my friends here are very jealous. I have some nice photos and lots of good memories.... I want to thank all of you for your kindness and hospitality you provided to Chris and myself. Your company, perspectives, and interpretations made it so much more interesting. I had an excellent glimpse into your beautiful country and its assortment of bird diversity, mammals, reptiles, and of course the cultural aspects.
