“Fantastic service!”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

I visited Hazyview with my fiance in June and we used Elephant Herd for our game drives. I have had the privilege of staying at 5* resorts in Zimbabwe and Botswana to see game, and so my level of expectation was high. To say that Elephant Herd delivered on all my expectations is an understatement! They were friendly, professional and knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble. We were blessed with some excellent game sightings, thanks largely to the skill of Brendon. I can't wait to go back!

“Chasing Leopards - An anniversary to remember”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

After touring Kruger by day with another tour company, we decided to book a night tour with Elephant Herd and boy were we glad that we did. It was the highlight of our safari tours. Our driver FP was terrific! He picked us up from our resort and after enjoying soft drinks, tea an snacks we boarded open air vehicles for our tour. Our tracker sat on the hood of the trunk and directed our course. We saw giraffes, elephants, buffalo bulls, kudu, and other wildlife as we began our tour through Sabi Sand Game Drive. Just before sunset we pulled over for sundowners. FP had taken our drink orders and we enjoyed wine, soft drinks, and snacks as we snapped pictures that are simply amazing! Elephants walking by with the sunset it the background and beautiful canopied trees. It was our wedding anniversary and this definitely was an amazing way to spend it. We had our 9 yo daughter with us and she loved it. We continued our tour and that's when the excitement began. There was a spotting of the elusive leopard. We raced to the spot, off roading through hills, it was exciting. We arrived to the spot and were amazed not only one leopard but there were 3. We were in for a leopard making show. There were 2 males and a female who was looking to mate. We sat just feet away from the excitement. We didn't see who won the territory dispute but it was truly unforgettable. After that we headed back for dinner. FP had them arrange a special table for us for our anniversary while the rest of the group ate around the fire. It was wonderful as we ate tasty traditional food with a hyena and hippo just below. I can't say enough about this tour and the wonderful people who work for the company especially FP.

“Great service”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

My husband and I have been to Hazyview 3 times over the last 10 years (most recently in March this year) or so and each time we have used Elephant Herd for our safari drives and other sight seeing in the area. Their service is great, and very freindly - you feel like one of the family. Nothing is too much trouble. We have had some wonderful days with them including fantastic game viewing - that leopard on the sand river bridge, sigh.....
We cannot recommend them highly enough.

“Magical Tour”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

The guys and girls at Elephant Herd are truly professional, have enormous knowledge and will go the extra mile to make tour chosen tour so very special and we would recommend them very highly. From our point of view we requested a special trip that was not part of their advertised tours and without hesitation or delay all was arranged specially for us. With superb travel arrangements, comfortable vehicles and collections and drop off's again nothing is to much.

A personal friendly service we would truly recommend a day tour with Elephant Herd and thanks guys hope to see you soon.

Treat yourself and give it a go - we have numerous times and enjoyed every single minute

“Excellent service”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

My fiance and I visited Hazyview a couple of months ago and we relied heavily on Elephant Herd Tours and Safaris to guide us and assist us whilst we were there. We've previously stayed at 5* lodges in Botswana, so we're familiar with Safaris and the likes. I can honestly say that I was truly impressed with the level of service received from Elephant Herd Tours and Safaris, and will use them again without a doubt!
