My sister and I booked a full day Addo Elephant Park tour with Alan. The communication prior to the tour is amazing, you'll get all the information you need and after your tour you will receive photos they take during the day.

Before I forget - Carmen recommends you bring a battery pack to charge your phone/camera. A full day of photo taking will take a toll on the batteries. Angelika worked with us to arrange prepayment by credit card for our tour to Addo Park. We were picked up by Carmen at our hotel at 7:30 and then we drove around... More

It is actually thanks to the animals that 'showed off' for you in the amazing Addo Elephant National Park, but I'm happy that I was the privileged one to be able to share these incredible sightings with you. Receiving such positive... More

Really nice trip with Alan to a nice nearly untouched wildlife park. Having worked in the wildlife obviously all his life, he knows the best spots and is able to answer all the question about the animals there.
