Hi Brett and Rosey!

Kichwa Tembo, Masai Mara Safari Feedback

October 2018

East Africa, Kenya, Masai Mara, Kichwa Tembo

Dear Brett and Rosey

I just want to say what a fantastic time we have had at Kichwa Tembo. It exceeded all of our expectations. The animals were extraordinary. We saw the Big Five within 2 days! I would recommend Kichwa Tembo to anyone, but more importantly, I would strongly recommend Brett Horley Safaris when planning a safari experience.

Northern Tanzania and Zanzibar Safari Circuit

October 2018

East Africa: Zanzibar, Tanzania, Arusha, Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti National Park

Hi Rosey,

Words can not describe what an amazing time we had on our trip to Tanzania. We absolutely loved every single minute of it. From our arrival in Zanzibar, where we were completely overwhelmed by the natural beauty of the island, the incredible accommodation in Xanadu, the wonderful service and food – and the highlight for the boys was definitely the snorkeling and jumping off the dhow into the ocean at sunset!

Dear Brett

We wanted to thank both you and Rosey for the very well planned adventure in Namibia. We both absolutely loved it! We would also like to thank you for the lovely bottle of sparkling wine (which went down a treat after a long day!) and the fruit you organised for our anniversary. We very much appreciated it. The trip was amazing. Namibia is certainly a country of breathtaking scenery and wonderful sightings of the animals.

Extra special sightings at Ivory Tree Lodge, Pilanesberg NP

August 2018

South Africa, Pilanesberg National Park, Ivory Tree Lodge

Dear Brett,

Thank you so much for the arrangements you made for African Horizon Technologies at Ivory Tree Lodge. My clients from Water Now Inc in North America said it was one of the best experiences of their lives. So much did they enjoy the trip that they have already confirmed they would return again in June/July next year. Seeing 4 of the Big 5 in less than 24 hours was remarkable, along with two cheetah on the prowl was awesome.

August 2018

South Africa, Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, Walkers River Camp

Hey Brett,

Once again you have left your mark, on not only my wife and I, but on our kids too. It was a privilege to ride on the back of your vehicle and absorb your knowledge and passion for the bush. Absolutely amazing and unforgettable sightings in the Timbavati with Mfezi and yourself. We look forward to using Brett Horley Safaris for all our future safari experiences.

July 2018

South Africa, Sabi Sand, Djuma Game Reserve, Galago Camp

We had a wonderful stay at Galago Camp. I have to recommend our guide team; Taxon, the guide, was a very knowledgable person. We were fortunate to view the Big 5 close up, thanks to the effort of our guide team. The wild dogs were extra special. Thank you for recommending Galago Camp, we appreciate your effort.

Feedback after an overland safari in Uganda

June 2018

Uganda: Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Kibale Forest, Queen Elizabeth National Park, Murchison Falls, ZIWA Rhino Sanctuary.

What a trip we have had! I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of camping and wildlife. The tour was quite full-on with so much mileage, but boy did it give you a fabulous taste of Uganda. Lovely people, lush landscape, awesome wildlife.  I’m so pleased that I decided to do two runs at the gorillas.

Rhino Walking Safaris and Pafuri Camp

May 2018

South Africa, Kruger National Park: Pafuri Camp, Rhino Plains Camp

My adult son and I just spent a week on safari with Brett Horley Safaris doing all of the arrangements with only a few weeks’ notice. We divided our time between two Kruger Park Camps: Rhino Plains Camp in the south and Pafuri Camp in the north. ​Both camps were fabulous, with Pafuri being a bit on the higher end of the posh scale and Rhino Plains having more diversity of animals. We also did a combo of walking game drives and riding game drives.

A family affair at Walkers River Camp, Timbavati

April 2018

South Africa, Timbavati Nature Reserve, Walkers River Camp

Brett,

Thanks for a fantastic experience in Timbavati last week and one I hope to repeat again one day. Your approach to the whole week was professional and your ability to engage with the children is a very special skill. Our party comprised seasoned safari goers and novices across the full age spectrum and with not one dull moment.

Kruger National Park and Manyeleti Private Nature Reserve

March 2018

South Africa: Kruger National Park, Manyeleti Game Reserve

Made the impossible possible!

We had a last minute plan to head into the bush with plenty of obstacles that could have thwarted the trip but Brett and Rosey stepped up to make it one of the best adventures of our lives! For starters there was the logistics: We were a pair coming from separate locations, Bahrain and India. When my flight from India was over 12 hours delayed arriving we were doubtful we could make the drive to Kruger in time for check in but with both Rosey and Brett on the line making sure we were on the quickest route and calling ahead to the lodge to let them know of our late arrival it all ended up working out!

Zimbabwe: Victoria Falls, Mana Pools, and Hwange National Park

April 2018

Zimbabwe: Victoria Falls, Mana Pools, Hwange National Park

This was our fourth trip with Brett Horley Safaris, having now been to 7 different parks in 3 different countries (South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe). If that isn’t a corroboration of their brilliant work, I’m not sure what is. This most recent time we went to Victoria Falls, Mana Pools and Hwange National Park. Brett’s contacts on the ground ensure the best possible breadth of options, and every trip we’ve been on has been put together meticulously.

Dear Brett,

Our trip to SA has been truthfully rated as one of the ‘Big 5’ holidays for all in the group. From the moment we set foot in the Timbavati game reserve everybody knew they were in for a massive treat.

“Walkers River Camp a trip of a lifetime” – Guest review

South Africa, Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, Walkers River Camp

Lads!

Where do I start? Absolutely epic trip last week. Cannot believe some of the game we saw and you both made damn sure it was a trip of a lifetime. However, it has made this week back in the office even more sour.

nThambo Tree Camp in Klaserie a fantastic Greater Kruger experience

South Africa, Klaserie Private Nature Reserve, nThambo Tree Camp

Firstly, thanks for an extremely enjoyable experience at nThambo Tree Camp. This was a lifetime dream for me and I’m sure for all the others, and you made the dream more than I would have thought possible, so thank you very much for your patience with us and for what seemed to us that you went that extra mile. The dog chase being one example, but also the freedom you allowed us. All in all, a fantastic experience. I will recommend you to anybody I know who is looking for this type of experience.

A first-time safari experience at Walkers River Camp, Timbavati

South Africa, Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, Walkers River Camp

I just wanted to send you a little message to THANK YOU both for such an amazing safari experience at Walkers River Camp. It was mine and Jess’ first time on safari and I can honestly say it was the best holiday we have ever had. We thought you both were absolutely fantastic. Brett, your knowledge was extraordinary and it’s just not the same being back home now, seeing an animal/bird and not having anyone to ask what it is. We can’t compare you to any other guide but it was clear to see that you were highly respected by the other guides and how much you enjoy your ‘job’.

A perfect private South African safari experience

South Africa

Well, the dust has well and truly settled on our trip. When we were organising this trip we had only a vague idea of how it would turn out as 6 people have different expectations, so I was really pleased with everyone’s feedback on their enjoyment of the trip. You were a big part in the success, so many thanks for your involvement in the planning and execution of the safari, there were so many memories stored away by all of us.
