Private tour experience was fantastic. I had a great time and got to see and do everything I wanted to do on my own schedule. Highly recommend!!!

A brilliant way to see the big 5! Close by and inexpensive, good food, cordial hosts, and just fun. The day was wonderfully entertaining and educational about the animals. The ranger-guides-drivers are well informed and knowledgable. If you have limited time and a limited budget, this is a great way to see the South African wildlife.

I really enjoyed this tour, the private guide was amazing, he went above and beyond to ensure a great time, and the safari was also great.

Great tour really in fact. Local operator Kabura Travel and Tours took privately took me to the Aquila Game Reserve, and the person that took me to location Alan was a genuinely really nice guy, who had given me a comprehensive history of South Africa to its modern day. When i got to the reserve, I was pretty much expecting a private drive in the reserve, but that was not the case, and jumped in an open truck with other tourists. This marked as private, i expected a more private experience. Nevertheless, i still enjoyed the reserve. Managed to see only four of the big five. But that was good enough as i missed out only on the Cape Buffalo!
