”Ralph Waldo Emerson said : ‘Life is a succession of lessons that must be lived to be understood.’ You have helped us learn a few of those lessons over the last two weeks. The experience has not been one I can easily sum up – I have been moved by the beauty of this land we have seen and these people we have encountered. I know I cannot say exactly how, but I will be a different person for having been here.”

”I learnt to be wary of the crocodile; heard the hippopotamus laugh; saw two elephants oblivious of our presence frolicking in the shallows; watched the majestic fish eagle, posing on the fork of a petrified tree, throw back his head with a plaintive cry, and with a flash retrieve a catfish in one talon; saw a secretive jackal; a shadowy herd of buffalo at night; crossed the path of a secretive but purposeful porcupine. All these wonderful memories bound together with the pleasure of your company, and solicitous attention to our every need.”

Brian Quinn and Catherine Mann,

“Dreaming the unseeming
We set out on our drive,
And ended with faces beaming
For we saw four out of five.

With boredom well resisted
By anecdotal tales,
As guide turned and twisted
Along the dusty trails.

And now our trek is over
As we make our homeward tack,
But we savoured every second
And next year we’ll be back!”

Brian and Catherine again – Kruger, 2001

My wife & I, our son, his wife and their three children (age 3-7), spent the better part of five days touring the Cape Town area with Steve and his trusty new set of wheels. We have nothing but good things to say about Steve! He was punctual, light-hearted if we were a bit late, and always ready to make itinerary changes on the fly when weather or other requirements went awry. One such change had him traveling almost two hours out of his way, over hill and dale, when dropping us off for three day stint at one of the private game reserves. Lesser folks would have worried about the beating their car was taking, or the unexpected return trip that ended after dark, not Steve. For him it was all in a day’s work: Hakuna Matata – no worries.

Steve also offers the usual sort of interesting tidbits you’d expect from a top-notch tour guide, but his easy demeanor, complemented by his geography teaching background, allow for a more thoughtful exchange than you’re likely to find with most tour guides. And if you get him on a roll, he’s more than willing to share a few jokes, to include some with the predictable but enjoyable accents of the outlanders who visit South Africa. In sum, we had a totally exhilarating experience in Cape Town and Steve was a significant contributing factor. We have no hesitancy in recommending him highly. If you have any doubts, the coup de grace is his daily rate, which we found to be extremely satisfactory. Enjoy your visit! We certainly did. Thanks Steve!!
