We had a great time today; our thanks to Garth for guiding us. Both the canoeing and the walk were just what we hoped for. The Goukamma beach is amazing… and we come from a part of the world with some wonderful beaches, so the bar is set high!
Thank you Garth for taking Peter and I on such a fantastic walk at the beginning of March around the Robberg peninsular. We had a fantastic experience walking with you and have very good memories of your beautiful country and welcome and hospitality we received. We keep looking at our photos – Peter especially all the videos of the sea crashing in to remind us how fantastic it was.
Dear Garth, We have finally returned home today to Scotland & just wanted to thank you for a truly brilliant trip & a great start to our very diverse holiday.
You are an amazing guide & brought out the best in all of us as you instilled confidence & shared your knowledge from birds, wildlife & geology , let alone climbing & cooking skills . The weather added to making it an adventure . We will do all we can to recommend your organisation to others. Many many thanks, Rona and family
Many thanks Garth for your fantastic arrangement! Leanne and me got a marvelous experience. The only part I feel regret is we couldn’t stay longer there and have more fun together! Wholehearted recommendation from Hong Kong!
Just finished the Tsitsikamma Trail with Garth – had a wonderful time with a great bunch of people. Garth knew his stuff and led us on a great hike in a stunning location. I was sad when it ended! Would definitely recommend
We are home again in the Netherlands and would like you to know we enjoyed the trekking very much!
GEMMA & DICK KORS
Hi you guys, We arrived home yesterday after a WONDERFUL month in South
Africa, thanks in large part to you. Now it’s laundry, grocery shopping and
Good luck in all that you are doing and if you are ever in Colorado …
Best wishes, Nancy
The trip was great. Drakensburg is a beautiful area and we were lucky to get some exceptionally beautiful mornings! I had very little expectations going in (just didn’t know what to expect), and I had a great time! The meals were super tasty! Otto did an a amazing job at bringing delicious and healthy meals on the trip. Very well fed!
The trip exceeded all expectations. It is clear that Garth knows the area very well and loves what he does. He taught us so much about trekking & South Africa.
The meals were way beyond my expectation for a backpacking trip. Garth prepared meals that were delicious & made our fellow hikers jealous. We cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed our time. As difficult as the Otter trail was, I always felt safe with Garth. We have been singing praises to everyone we know. As soon as we can return to South Africa, we know we want to book another trip with your company.
