“Over the years it became apparent that there was a definite need and demand for quality overnight safaris in South Africa and most particularly the Kruger National Park. We had a dream of fulfilling this need, and have done so over the past 18 years to the point where we now specialise in overnight safaris in the Kruger National Park.”

– Dean Cherry
