Our trip back went fine thanks very much, you chose a very nice hotel in Johannesburg for us, in fact all the hotels were excellent.
We would certainly think of coming back to you again for our next trip. The team at Makanyi were very good and the only down side was the rain and cold for 2 days!! Got to see many animals and Lloyd has thousands of shots to surf through.
Got to come back to Africa as we were not lucky enough to see leopards – and of course cheetah, but next time. Tracked 2 male lions one evening in the dark and got some superb shots.
Thanks so much for your guide around Cape Town such a beautiful area, and it was a shame we couldn’t spend more time in Johannesburg as originally planned, but time we can go further afield.
Helen and Lloyd
Thank you to the Ikon team for an adventure of a lifetime! This safari package that you put together for me was spot on. I can’t stop talking about it. Tintswalo & Xanatseni Private Lodges were in my book “Ten Star” lodges, the staff couldn’t do enough to make my safari so personable and one to remember. For a photographer and adventurer like myself, the private camps was the way to go. The guides at the camps took us out super early and brought us back after dark, so that we could get those epic African photographs. There was nothing that the staff or Gary Parker (our personal guide) couldn’t make happen ~ all you needed to do was ask.
I never imagined taking photos of the “Big Five” twice in a nine day safari! And we actually had the big five bagged by the end of day two! Who does that? IKON does that! Gary picked us up at the airport and was our guide all the way up to the last day when he dropped us off back at the airport in Johannesburg.
