Hilltop Camp - Hluhluwe iMfolozi Game Reserve

Morning Keith

A belated thank you for booking our trip to Hilltop. All went smoothly, we really enjoyed our time there. The roads need some repair, lots of potholes, when driving one is looking at the road and not the bush! Many tourists in the park which was very nice to see.

Kind Regards

Dear Keith,

We returned to London on Tuesday 24th and since then we have been talking about the fabulous holiday that we just had all the time.

In Durban, apart from eating, our favourite activity, in Little Havana, Harvey's and tea at The Oyster Box which was quite overwhelming, we did little else. But we managed to go to the theatre and saw a great production of "Geeves and Wooster", which was hilarious, with a cast of three playing all the characters.
We also attended a wonderful concert at the Town Hall.

The four days we spent in the Drakensberg Mountains were beautiful although exhausting to climb. We enjoyed the Champagne Castle very much. Both food and views were excellent, but if,and when we return we might go back to "The Drakensberg Sun".

However,the highlight our our trip without doubt was The Kruger Park and game reserves. All thanks to you. Without your wealth of knowledge, guidance, patience and understanding, we would have missed so much. We cant thank you enough for being our guide,and mentor in so many ways. Hopefully we will see you again, either here in London, or South Africa.

With our sincere good wishes,
Stephen and Pepe

Hluhluew iMfolozi Game Reserve & Kruger Game Reserve

Hello Lisa,

I just wanted to thank you for your help with organising bookings for our recent trip to South Africa. We had a wonderful time and all the bookings you made for us worked like clockwork - we had no issues with our accommodation or bookings for night drives when we arrived at each camp. Both Hluhluew-Imfolozi and Kruger were fantastic; the wildlife was amazing, and the accommodation all the camps we stayed at was excellent. We also really enjoyed the night drives. The only minor issue we had was when we went to leave Kruger and the ranger at the exit gate wanted to see the paperwork for booking our accommodation - I explained that we didn't have any paperwork, just booking numbers, which I could give him. Eventually he accepted this and let us leave, so it wasn't a problem in the end.

So thank you so much for arranging these bookings for us. We had a great trip, and would love to have the opportunity to go back one day.

Amakhosi Safari Lodge, Northern KwaZulu-Natal

As reported on TripAdvisor :
“Amazing Experience at Amakhosi”

My friend and I had booked two days/nights at Amakhosi, and within 10 minutes of arriving, we immediately booked a third. This was my first safari experience, so I wasn't sure what to expect, but everything about our stay was perfect. The staff was wonderful, the suites and main lodge were luxurious without being pretentious, and the food was amazing. When I told them in advance that I was a pescetarian, but would eat a vegetarian meal if fish wasn't available, I was secretly expecting a cheese sandwich or pasta at every meal, but I was very pleasantly surprised to have a delicious seafood dinner made especially for me each night. The game drives with Kevin and Mandla were always an adventure, and Kevin was great about answering the 500 questions we bombarded him with each trip. I have a "no repeat" rule when it comes to international travel, but might make an exception and return to Amakhosi.

Mantuma Camp, Mkuze Game Reserve

Hi Keith
Just wanted to drop you a line to say a big thank-you for arranging the Mkuze leg of our trip. Everything went smoothly and we had a magic time – the tent you booked was the best of the lot with a view out into the bush rather than of the rest of the camp/other units. Will definitely go for this one again (although sadly probably only this time next year!).

Thanks again for great service!

Hi Lisa,

We had the most wonderful weekend away. The camp you booked us in was just amazing and you landed us the best room. We had the Nyala shyly visiting us the first half an hour, amazing bird life and well, you really got us sorted. The staff said it was the best room in the camp and it really was. Thanks so much for your help, and I will be back. I can  highly recomend the camp and accomodation to anyone.

Hi Keith
We are back in Germany since Saturday. We had a very nice time this time in ZA , i say this because we have been to ZA 5 times in 3 years.

Mpila and the tent-camp is just great for the feel of true nature with very nice people and staff around.
I, of course, wrote my very positive feed-back and had it published in "Trip-Advisor" today.

Thank you for your help and i will contact you on our next trip soon,

Hi Keith,
I just wanted to let you know what a great time we had at Gqoyeni. 
Beautiful spot in a beautiful reserve! 
To be so removed from everything was really a treat. 

However we all thought the place was a bit dirty - completely understanding that we are out in the middle of the bush - but a little more attention is needed. 

Thanks & Best Regards,

Morning Keith

Trust you had a very happy & peaceful Easter.

We had a most superb time at Munyawaneni - it was really appreciated by the CT contingent! Great early morning walks and much game viewing, but none of the cats. Thankfully saw many Rhino.
I'd like to get a message through about the wonderful services by Simon (the cook) and Samora (the field guide) .. well worth the extra money for the pair of them! Such interesting fellows .. Simon was most innovative with his cooking & prepared the best braaied fillet I've had in a long while. I didn't do any of the walks but the others found that Samora's knowledge was invaluable'.

Thanks for your services .. shall probably use them again for a trip middle of next year.

Kind regards

Mpila Camp, Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park

We had a lovely stay in the park and were the most pleased with the Mplia safari tent. It is a wonderful camp site and we saw plenty of game on that side of the park.

The only problem we had was when we got to the Hluhluwe Hilltop camp were we where inconvenienced by incompetent service. First we were told that breakfast would be an additional cost and then we were also booked into a chalet to find someone comfortably settled in our unit!
All did however come right in the end as we sorted out the breakfast issue (as this turned out to be a problem of....we still don't know!) and we were accommodated in a two bedroom chalet.

The breakfast was incredible and the spread was unparalleled.

Thank you very much for reserving everything for us as it was an unforgettable adventure.

Hi Jeremy & Dean:

We just arrived back in the States from our vacation to Mpila which was just fantastic. We saw the Big 5. On our last day we saw a Leopard at 9am right next to the road, and later came across 5 lion resting up near some rocks.

Thanks for sorting out our accommodation, we even had a hyena walking around our outdoor fire place looking for scraps.

Thanks for the really lovely trip. You're a fabulous guide! I'm amazed at how easily you interacted with Robert.

The B&B is excellent. We have a whole apartment, with large verandah overlooking the pool. It seems quite secure. We took a taxi to the Hilton this afternoon for the opening ceremony, and got take-away from Nando's on Florida Rd for tea. I think we will be fine. Its a little like Bogota, keep money in pockets rather than carry a backpack or purse, leave valuables in the safe and keep eyes open.

Now that we are all back in England we wanted to email you to thank you for the wonderful time you enabled us all to have when you took us up to uMfolozi.
We all had a great time and appreciated your patience with us in answering our numerous questions.
There is an Elephant in my mirror is a statement that we will all never forget. Les and Chris I know both also really enjoyed themselves. Now we are beginning to sort out some of our photographs we are realising even more how lucky we all were. Thank you very much also for your advice re Rorke's Drift which we made on the Friday and Lesotho which we didn't make. That is for the next time. We all have every intention of returning.
Thank you and every best wish Chri Hartley.

Dear Jeremy,

I’m finally writing to thank you for your help with travel arrangements, recommendations, and for the time you spent with me in Durban on the first day of my KZN adventure. Everything went fine – only a couple of minor issues, which, fortunately didn’t end up being a problem (one was that the iMfolozi River had flooded the road into the park from the main entrance, so I ended up driving around through Nongoma and into the park from the Ulundi side; the second was a flat tire, which fortunately became evident only as I pulled into the Sodwana Bay Lodge, where they had a mechanic who patched the tire while I was diving the next day!). I didn’t see any big cats, but certainly plenty of other game. I had one good day of diving at Sodwana, but there was a lot of surge on the second day, and so we only did one dive. St. Lucia was great. Ndumo, nice and private, but a bit muddy as it had been raining! And, I really liked Ithala. So, it was a trip of a lifetime, and I owe some of that to you!

Best regards,

Hi Jeremy.
Just a quick line to thank you for the service provided by your company which contributed to us having a fantastic honeymoon. I particularly wanted to say what a great tour guide you have in Chris. It takes a lot of patience and excellent social skills to spend four days in close proximity with two strangers. Chris managed to pull off the amazing feat of organising things with meticulous planning and structure whilst keeping the tour totally laid back and relaxed. We felt at ease throughout and his enthusiasm for imparting his seemingly limitless knowledge on south african wildlife and culture meant that we were always interested and entertained.

We will definitely recommend far and wild to our friends. Thanks again

Hi To the Far & Wild Team

Merci beacoup for the wonderful chalet and the fantastic time in Hilltop. Just wonderful and just as I remembered it. We Frenchies had lost in rugby on our very first night in Hluhluwe. You'll never believe it but we saw everything except Cats (but I wasn't counting on it) but especially NO ELEPHANTS, funny how nobody seems to believe me.

Will refer you to anybody wanting to go to the Elephant coast.

Baie dankie

I am writing to let you know that our safari with Chris le Roux was most enjoyable.  Chris' knowledge of the area, political and cultural insight and, of course, wildlife expertise made our safari unforgettable.  You should consider yourself fortunate to have such professional assets as Chris.  I'll recommend him to anyone headed to Durban.

I have finally returned home to the United States from my holiday in South Africa.

Please, please, please tell Warrick thank you; he was a wonderful guide.
Warrick has such a warm personality, that he made us comfortable from the start. He not only guided us through Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park, but he also provided us with a great deal of South African history. His knowledge of South African and its people was magnificent. The history lesson that he provided during our 2-day Zululand and Safari visit enhanced our experience.

I will definitely use Far and Wild Safaris on my next visit to South Africa. Additionally, thank you for meeting our expectations. Feel free to use my comments as a reference.

Thanks again.

Hello Jeremy

We have been seeing almost every animal that are avialble to see. The only ones we didn't see was lions and lepards. Those we will see next time. Everything has been working perfect. We got an extra night at Hilltop.

Thanks a lot

Hi Jeremy.

Thanks very much for recommending Mpila camp at uMfolozi. For both my wife and I (although not used to getting so close to wildlife) it was an incredible experience seeing animals so close at hand (we were only told the next day that Mpila camp was not enclosed. IT WAS REALLY FANTASTIC.

I wonder if you could assist me with the following enquiry. I have a niece from Italy who is very keen to visit the Kruger Park round about July/August this year and she is looking for a guided tour of the park including accommodation and transfer to and from the park from her hotel in Johannesburg. Does your company provide such a service? If not is there a company that you would recommend. Your assistance will be appreciated.

Kind regards

Dear Jeremy,

We had a fantastic time on the safari and what made it so special was having Peter Whylie as our guide.  What a gracious, knowledgeable man he is.  Thank you for arranging for him to be our guide.  My husband and I agree that he made the experience First Class. 
Most sincerely,

Dear Jeremy,
