what’s they are saying?
My wife and I went on both the Swaziland tour and the Panoramic tours with Gavin and where do I begin?!
Gavin gives you more than a sight seeing tour with some brief information on the sites passing by – He really gives you an in depth, eye opening and simultaneously entertaining background on the various sites. Being the inquisitive type I had a fair few questions about the animals, cultures, structures, customs etc etc and he took me through them in such an amazing way. I had initially only booked the Swaziland tour and was picked up from the airport by Gavin and enjoyed it so much that I booked the Panoramic tour for my last day in Kruger which ended up with Gavin dropping us off to the airport.
The tours were extremely relaxed yet somehow managed to cover so much ground in each of the days. His restaurant selections, stop off points are very well thought out and not to mention his ability to speak 6 languages (many of them African) is simply incredible!!
I would highly recommend the tours for couples, families, singles, old, young etc. I’ve been lucky enough to travel a fair bit in my lifetime and can say Sasekile (which means beautiful) is truly up there in quality, comfort and most importantly feeling immersed into the region and culture in the short time we were there…beautiful indeed.
Thank you again for the hospitality and will definitely be back one day! ‘My Word!’
Sasekile tours are the real deal. Gavin is deeply knowledgeable and explains things in an engaging way. Most importantly, he is a very safe and responsible driver.
Our tour to Maputo visited most of the key sights, and had a perfect pace to it. The tour included food and drink at an authentic local restaurant, which made a nice change from tours that take you to a tourist trap.
Having been fortunate to visit 120 countries, I have been on a lot of tours. Without question the Sasekile tour to Maputo was one of the best I have been on.
