October Safari

On our October tour we had the pleasure of welcoming Heike, Werner and Volker (DE) on our safari. Unfortunately Mr and Mrs Winstanley (UK) had to cancel in the last minute due to poor health. We hope we will be able to welcome you on one of our future tours! 

Alfie learnt some German and Heike was the official translator ;) Thanks Heike! They had a great time exploring the bush in the Kruger with lots of animal sightings and in Cape Town they enjoyed the luxury of our Epic Guest House with day tours to our amazing scenic sights.

They said they had 2 holidays in one! The first part is in the bush on Safari and the second part in Cape Town with more sightseeing’s.
We look forward to welcome you back! ;)

New Zealand is back - 3rd time round!

Thank you Moira for your report:

Kruger Park lunch
Had a great time in South Africa with Epic Enabled - Joburg, Kruger, private game reserve, and Capetown.
Natalie with Jessica the Hippo
Great people and very eay to deal with - as a group we had pre-requested some items of the trip and the guide was flexible and had some great alternative ideas as well - Accommodation excellent , as well as the equipment provided - a great stress free holiday for everyone.

Chrissy with Cheetah @ Tshukudu
Within our group of friends we had peole in wheelchairs, mobility issues, visual impairment , and brain injury -quite a variety of complex personalities however everyone commented on the relaxed, yet smooth running of the tours.

Inside Epic's safari vehicle
For several in the group it was a repeat experience - though when animals are involved there is no repeat experience - each one is different and special at the time to the various individuals.

The focus of the group was to view the wildlife and also have the opportunity to get up close to others - which is certainly a possibility at Tshukudu - yes many of the animals have been orphaned and it has been necessary for them to have had human contact but they are not 'tame'.
Lift into Epic's Safari vehicle

None of the group had any issues with any of the vehicles in which we were transported - they appreciated the efforts of Alfie and Jakes for them to be able to transfer to sit and travel in the usual game drive vehicles.
Dan @ Robben Island
Capetown Accommodation was five plus star - "absolutely marvellous" was one comment, and the mix of organised tours and free time was appreciated.

Everyone had a great time - and some are already saving for yet another trip.
