We arrived on a cruise and arranged Tim Brown Tours to pick us up for our stops in Durban and Richards Bay. We visited Hluhluwe and Tala Game Reserves on two consecutive days. Our guide, Themba, was an expert on both parks and made sure we saw all the animals. Plus he is a real gentleman, and it was great... More

What a disappointment this trip was. Having used Tim Brown Tours before we were expecting the same standard. In fact our trip had been contracted out to a guide who himself contracted it out. Assumptions had been made that as we are in our 60s we would not want to do any proper hiking. The guide, himself in his 60s,... More
