Wayne Jones is an exceptional birding guide with his ability to hear, identify, spot and describe the field marks of so many elusive birds.

Wayne Jones is a terrific guide, and the local guides/vehicle/driver were excellent. I got 60-odd new birds, which I think was very good. Your office staff are excellent: helpful, on-the-ball and quick.

Markus was great, I’ve been looking forward to travelling with him. His birding skills and management of the group were both excellent.

Mr. Nigel Redman's knowledge of the birds, mammals, and other wildlife was extraordinary. His enthusiasm was contagious, and his pleasant demeanor was a joy to be around. He also was great at looking after the participants' "creature" comforts. I would consider it a privilege to travel someday again with him.

Andre was really good. I feel he is a potential superstar leader. He has great birding skills and his people skills a pretty good too and will improve with time. He is at his best when helping the tour group work on those tough skulkers. On our next to last day we got three or four of these tough to see birds and it was all due to Andre's skill and patience in dealing with the birders in the group. It was very impressive. That day was one of the best birding days I've had and it involved a lot of hiking. I'd certainly recommend any birding trip with Andre as a guide.
