Client Review
“Shelldon was an amazing guide — you can tell when someone loves their job, and Shelldon definitely loves what he does. He takes pride to ensure that his customers are satisfied and that they have the best experience possible. I was traveling solo which meant that Shelldon only had me to deal with 🙂 Over all, he was able to go with the flow very well. I am a relatively chilled person so we worked well together and I let him educate me on the sites. My tour included Hluhluwe Game Reserve (over night), including a night drive, the cheetah rescue, and St. Lucia (hippos). It was a jam packed schedule but I loved every minute of it.” Hotel-Sam
