Although some of the revenue might be donated to the township people, this tour is seriously overpriced. The tour took 2,5 hours and we have been inside a jeep for most of the time. The only main stop was at a local pottery, we stopped there for almost 45 mins for commercial reasons only. They should either donate 75% to the local people or add more sightseeing in the tour to justify the amount paid. As far as i have experienced, they are making money over the back of the township people.

So my Fiancé and I did a one day private tour (08:30-22:00) with Peter. We went to the Addo Elephant park and then in the afternoon (14:30 on) you go on tour in the adjacent Scotia resort... this was amazing. Peter really helped find all sorts of wildlife (not just elephants) in Addo and was an excellent guide.

Before we booked this we had looked into all sorts of alternatives and stays in what are all private game reserves (NB these have often been stocked with game artificially). This option was probably about 1/4 or less of the price of staying in one of the many reserves. I think I'd have been a little disappointed if I'd have spent that much on staying in a reserve when this provided the same wildlife experience. I'm honestly not sure one needs to stay for 2 or 3 or more days at enormous cost, as these game reserves aren't that big and you'll just end up seeing the same animals and things again and again unless a lion butchers something right in front of you!

Anyway, each to their own, this option fitted our trip and finances better then staying in a resort...

Thank you Peter for a lovely day.

Great tour of the PE Township. We had Peter Giddy as the guide, and the lovely Ongezwa from Mosaic Tours as a back-up guide.
It was very interesting and informative.
We visited a township school as well as going to a shebeen for lunch.
I would definitely recommend it to anybody!

BEST safari experience I've ever had. Malcom is incredible and so knowledgable. Answered all our questions and knew where to be and what time to be there. If you're looking for some amazing pictures and an awesome experience go with Mosaic! We even had a chance to see an aardvark in the daytime (which I'm told is a big deal). :)

Took a half day City Tour and it was well worth it. Really good tour of neatly 4 hours, found out so much we didn't know. Our guide Craig (sorry for calling you Keith) is a top guy, would be over the moon to have him again. I liked his honesty and opinions and understood him. A top bloke. Good company well looked after. Will use them again.
