"Intimate wildlife experiences and specialist safaris"

Guest Feedback

"I appreciated Chris’ professionalism in helping me to choose Sandibe and then confirming my booking. Chris answered all of the questions I asked him and provided additional information that was very valuable and useful.

Staff at Sandibe were welcoming and made me feel at home. The managers were very helpful and the staff delightful to spend time with.

Sandibe lodge is set in a spectacular location and is surrounded by wildlife. I saw 4 of the big 5 and couldn’t have been happier with the experience. Botswana is a beautiful place and the people very warm and welcoming – I never felt unsafe at any time.

Overall, my Botswana experience was excellent and a sheer delight, and this is due in large part to the assistance provided by Chris."

"What a lovely country you have!! God bless. We all had the time of our lives. Both in Pilanesberg and Capetown.

The weather was a bit wet and grey the first few days in Capetown, but we finally got a chance to go up to Table Mountain yesterday before we flew out.

As for Kwa Maritane!! It was quite the experience, the place, the food, the game rides, and the water hole all made for an amazing experience. I am already recommending this vacation for the rest of my extended family.

Me, my mom and my two girls (one now who wants to move in SA), are all thanking you for helping us arrange for quite an extraordinary experience."

"We did indeed have a great time at Phinda. We liked the way the day was divided so that we had so much game viewing time - and the viewing was very good. Our guide was informative and the tracker was very good and knowledgeable. Overall it was a very pleasant experience. Thank you for organizing it, we will certainly tell friends about Talon Safaris."

"Words cannot explain, it was heaven! The feedback from we got from the lodge did not have enough writing space on it after Nix got hold of it! And as for Sibu (our guide), what a fantastic ranger! Take care, and thanks soooooo much for a memorable getaway!"

"Thank you for arranging one of the most memorable safaris, beyond anything I could have ever imagined! We were so fortunate, and managed to see 3 wildebeest river crossings. There were more animals than my eyes could comprehend. I will be sorting my photographs for weeks to come, and shold be done just in time to visit again:) Your services were exceptional, and we felt at ease with all arrangements all the time. Serengeti under Canvas is a truely spectacular and magical place!"

"We had a great time, and Dave Varty pulled out all the stops to make sure that we go back to Londolozi again. Great lodge, and a great team of people - our ranger was Jess who was truly fantastic. Thanks for organizing for us! Thanks for the Follow up, what exceptional service!"
