Hi Nic

My husband and I had a wonderful tour down the Garden Route with Yvonne.

We felt we had to let you know what a special lady you are employing as she couldn't do enough for us. She was always looking ahead and trying to fit in anything we wanted to do. She is a very caring person and we enjoyed sharing our holiday with her.

The tour was brilliant and we saw everything we wanted. The accomodation was varied and interesting. la Plume was brilliant and Corlu was a great host. We were made to feel special and it was great. The ostrich farm was great fun too.

After 11 years we returned to south africa for a 2nd holiday. We were happy to see Southern Circle was still around. Booked and paid with them via the internet. All our desires very full accommodated in a customised travel scheme. All hotels very excellent picks. Our combination of guided tours in/around Cape Town followed by drive yourself with pre-booked hotels along the Garden Route and Addo was very well organised. Very kind and knowledgable guide. Great tips on things to do and where to eat. At any moment in time either in presence or via mail or phone great service was provided.

Julie L - Support during COP 17 Conference

Dear Beate and Nick

Thank you SO much for all the support during the COP 17 Conference.

As you will have seen in the news, the results were disappointing in that the big green house gas emitters managed to put off reducing their emissions until about 2020, bad news for all of us. We will be negotiating over the next years and hopefully people will wake up more to the threats to all of us. But all your support really made a difference to our work, so we are really really appreciative. Congratulations for such a great service!!! I hope to be back but for fun and a safari.

Antonio from El Salvador - COP 17 Conference

On behalf of all my friends, part of the El Salvador's delegation to climate change negotiations that took place in Durban, we wanted to thank you for all the effective, kind and unconditional support that you provided each one of us while fulfilling our task. Your excellent service was really critical to the success of our mission in Durban.
Let us thank you for this once more while wishing you and your families all the best of health and prosperity for the New Year with all best wishes,


Jennifer M. I, Garden Route Tour, Robben Island.

The tours you booked for us were excellent. Excellent guides, who certainly 'knew their stuff'. Did you realize that the tours were personal tours, in that we traveled in a car with a driver-guide, and not in a coach with other folk? The guide would stop whenever we asked. We had to buy our own lunch, but each time were taken to somewhere were we had a good choice. We thought they were excellent value for money. If you should book these tours for anyone else, we can recommend Malcolm Lee as a driver/guide and a young man by the name of Jack.

Thomas W - 2 Day Battlefields of Natal Tour Review

This tour was a joy from the moment we boarded the bus till our guide David, who had become a family friend by this time, dropped us off. It was not of course possible to see everything within the two days and David tailored our visits to places and a pace that suited us. His knowledge of and pride in his homeland came through strongly and we were unable to ask any questions that he didn't know the answer to. From flora and fauna for my wife to the battles of long ago for an old soldier. The vehicle was first class and the driving very safe.

Dilip S - Kruger Safari - 4 Day Tour (SCJL)

Hi Nic and Beate,

We finished our 4 day trip yesterday and are happy to declare that it was one of the very best times we have ever had. A big "Thank you" for your team at Southern Circle and particularly to our new friend Jac Du Toit. His knowledge about South Africa flora, fauna, culture and history is thorough and we learnt a lot from him. Above all his straightforwardness and unique sense of humor helps.

We will have no hesitation in recommending Southern Circle Tours and Safaris and Jac to all our friends.

Thanking you once again and with Best regards.
