This was truly the experience of a lifetime and one of our guides Shelldon had a lot to do with my sentiment. He is extremely knowledgeable about the area, the animals, the local customs and the people. The safari was far more than we expected as another guide (Bungee) took us on the night and very early open jeep tours where we encountered two male lions that had just made a fresh warthog kill.

Shelldon was our guide for the Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve two night tour and tour of the markets in Durban. We ended up calling and scheduling our tour last minute, but they worked with our odd schedule and promptly (within one hour) called us back and had all details worked out. Throughout the tour, all scheduling and paperwork (at game park, cat sanctuary, river cruise) was taken care of so we could just enjoy everything. Shelldon is the best guide I have ever had.
