1st 'Gehandicaptenreizen' Christening of Epic Guest House

We currently have a great ‘Gehandicapten Dutch Group’ touring with us up in Kruger Park. 
15 fun Hollanders of varying ages had a very enjoyable & happy time with us in Cape Town – and even the weather ended up being kind to them in time for their Table Mountain outing, sunny but cool.
We did so much in their short time in Cape Town with Alfie, including Table Mountain, City centre, Signal hill, Chapmans Peak, Waterfront, Cape Point, Penguin colony, Robben Island, Market, Stellenbosch Winelands and lots more.
Epic Guest House welcomed the whole group of 15 for a jolly Pizza dinner which turned into a real fun evening amidst lots of laughter.
And some of the clients wanted to pack up our newest addition – Shingi, a 3 month old cutest and happiest puppy :)
Their Kruger experience will be updated in the next blog post.

Africa Safari Birthday Present

Thank you Lisa, Wendy & Ian!!! You were such a special Family to have join us for our September Kruger Safari trip.
We were disappointed when the other clients had to cancel on such short notice, as much as they were. And we thought you might also be sad, and to travel in our smaller vehicle!

But you made it such a great tour, with your spontaneous enjoyment, always enthusiastic – your comment about the highlights of the tour being that there were so many, it was not possible to think of only one. That was wonderful to hear.

It was amazing that you said you were apprehensive Wendy before the trip, as you had never been to Africa and didn’t know what to expect. Or how Ian would manage with his wheelchair. Lisa knew what it’s like in the Bush from travelling in Africa before, and as this was a Birthday gift to you Ian, you simply went ahead and loved it. It was so interesting to hear your comment Lisa, that this safari was so different from your other experiences. In a very positive way!
The wide variety of animals you experienced was a great treat – and something which can be taken for granted so easily.  But your appreciation was absolutely marvellous. Especially the thrill you expressed at seeing the Fish Eagle fishing, expecting its catch and then a swoop of another Fish Eagle stealing it! You are truly privileged to experience that. 
Seeing the majestic Sable antelope was one of the many highlights, as well as the graceful Cheetah chasing the Kudu in the game reserve.

We look forward to seeing you out here in South Africa at some future time...
