Edward is A++! He picked us up at our hotel on a cold fall morning complete with blankets which saved me thinking it would be warmer in the AM. We got into the park and immedietly passed all the crowds to search on our own and it paid off! We saw the big 5 by 11a AND African Dogs. Something... More

The drive was more than just a transfer as he spotted animals en route and explained about them and the environment. After... More

Edward Themba was our guide and driver on two occasions, from Buhala Lodge to Hoyo-Hoyo and later from there to Mpumalanga Aiport. Edward did an excellent job, each drive through the Park was a wonderful experience and we had most interesting sightings. We appreciated very much his experience and knowledge about wildlife, flora and local facts. He was punctual and... More
