  • I went on the Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve Overnight Tour with Shelldon, a fantastic guide! Not only he was very knowledgeable about SouthAfrica, the Zulu history, the animals and being very friendly, he made sure that the tour was tailored to my expectations (i.e. I really wanted to see the elephants, so we kept on driving until we did !!): couldn’t ask for a better guide! Thank you Shelldon!

  • Shelldon was our guide for the Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve two night tour and tour of the markets in Durban. We ended up calling and scheduling our tour last minute, but they worked with our odd schedule and promptly (within one hour) called us back and had all details worked out. Throughout the tour, all scheduling and paperwork (at game park, cat sanctuary, river cruise) was taken care of so we could just enjoy everything. Shelldon is the best guide I have ever had. He was professional, friendly, and so knowledgable on history, culture, wildlife, and literally everything. He clearly loves what he does and made this an amazing experience. If debating either what to do while in South Africa, or what company to go with for tours… chose a tour with Shelldon and Country and Coastal Touring.

  • Amazing adventures. We have found Country & Coastal Touring on website opinion as a very good tour operator. Now we recommend this trip to everybody. Our guide Sheldon Wells was very professional, eager to answer our question, but first of all he had a big knowledge about nature and animals. He was on time in the hotel. 8 hours trip gave us wonderful memories and beautiful fotos. Thank you C&CT.
