ROY ALLEN – Southern Mozambique

“The trip was excellent. Grahame is an amazing birder and guide. I enjoyed every minute. Pity we had to cut it short because of lockdown but I would happily do the trip again for the ones we might have missed. And thanks Charmaine too- your organization and care were world class.“

KAREN DIXON – Botswana Warblers 

“The trip was great, as always, and the company most enjoyable. Strange how we can all be splitting our sides with laughter at six in the morning, but it often happens”


“On behalf of Yvonne and myself, we would just once again like to say a very BIG THANK YOU for our wonderful trip to Botswana. We enjoyed it immensely.

We had a comfortable flight back and have come down to earth today. Please thank Charmaine for all the excellent catering.  Thanks so much, Grahame, it really was a very special trip all round – Monty the Monitor included.”

PENNY ABBOTT – Garden Route

“I particulary enjoyed getting to discover the birding opportunities of this area.  Visiting the Garden Route National Park, which I thought was really nice.

Very good trip, would be a pity if potential guests were not interested because they think they know the Garden Route. This gives a whole new view on the area.

This trip represented good value for money, in view of the quality of accommodation.

Another lovely trip.  Thank you !

GABBY BRIEDE – Garden Route 

“Particularly enjoyed the varied habitat and the Swartberg Pass.  A wonderful birding experience, the Swartberg Pass was awesome and the Cape Rockjumpers on the crest was magic.  Guiding was excellent!  Many thanks Grahame for a wonderful trip.  I enjoyed it very much.  Great accommodation.”

SANDY & OTTO SCHMIDT – Trogans, Tuskers and Turtles

“We have been on several Reach Africa trips. The selection of places, accommodation and activities gave us excellent birding opportunities, nice mammal sightings and the time to enjoy the areas we visited.

We cant fault the trip in any way.

Very enjoyable, good company, a lovely varied selection of places to visit and a nice combination of time in the field and free time to relax. Very happy, can’t think of anything that needs improving.”

PENNY DE VRIES – Northern Namibia & Okavango Panhandle

“Enjoyed Grahame’s excellent birding skills, the venues at which we stayed, the boat trips, the small group. Got 25 lifers!

Having down time during the day was also great.Everything went smoothly, the planning and organisation, the bird list, the air tickets. Can’t think of anything I disliked.  I loved every minute.

I do think it’s good value for money, despite being a lot to shell out when you consider what is included, it’s good value. Keep doing what you are doing.

I will be telling my birding friends how much I enjoyed it. I’m looking forward to future trips.”

MARGARET BENNETT – Northern Namibia & Okavango Panhandle

“Grahame looked after me – as he always does. I enjoyed it and am happy to have managed it at my age.   Geriatrics don’t get a lot of adventure in their lives!  

HEATHER BENNETT – Mana Pools September 2019

“Just a short note to say how much I enjoyed the trip to Zim.  Thank you for all the extras as well, like carrying my suitcase, transport to the airport, and much more.”

PETER & KARIN SALMON – Mana Pools September 2019

“Many thanks to you for a wonderful trip to Mana / Zim and the NC trip you put together for us. We are already longing for another safari with you!”


“This is my 5th trip with Grahame.  Excellent birding, no hassle.  Most enjoyable.  We keep looking out for your programme.  Commendable that Grahame caters so well in extended conditions.  Looking forward to another trip with Grahame.”


“I was referred to Reach Africa by a friend.  I particularly enjoyed the birds, animals and landscape.  I found the trip to be good value for money.

Would like to discover other national parks with you.

Grahame has more energy than anyone I know. Plus, what eyesight!  Overall impressions, EXCELLENT.”
