The best and perfect company with the best and perfect guide
Amazing guide, knows so much, so nice and friendly, knows exactly where to go to find the rare animals. they are the best company and i am privileged to have the most enjoyable and successful tour with Brendon.
Next time i'm coming i am definitely going with them again.
Our guide Bradley, was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and was very entertaining. An absolute gem.
Excellent, we were picked up as arranged at 5:00 am. Bradley was fabulous and did his very best to ensure we had an amazing day out. The tour was wonderful and we were extremely pleased with the number of different animals we saw. Even the rain couldn't put a damper on the day.
Texas Desert Girl Meets Djuma Sabi Sands
If you are ever considering a photo Safari in Djuma Sabi Sands area, you MUST book with Legend Safaris. Because of owners Shaheen and Zaheer, their “attention to detail” operation is a well oiled machine from top to bottom. We had sunrise and sunset drives where Ranger Rex and Tracker Mike took us through the different areas to search and find the Big 5. Success! With the help of Zali_photo, we all had our camera settings ready for the best shots. Back at camp, we were generously treated to what I would call Gold Star meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner, no detail left behind. The accommodations were excellent and most of all comfy. Every activity was well planned to a tee. My thankfulness and gratitude towards the staff are beyond words. Because of Legend Safaris, I have a new “Safari family” and fulfilled a lifetime dream. This Texas girl most definitely will return.
Amazing Photographic Safari at Djuma
Traveling from Texas to South Africa was the trip of a lifetime for me. I did not want to go on just any Safari, I wanted to go where I was familiar with the area and the animals. I had been following Zaheer on Instagram for years, so when the opportunity came about to go on a Safari with him, I was eager to jump at the chance and took my sister with me.
We flew into Hoedspruit and were met by Jones, our Transfer pickup arranged by Shaheen. He was delightful and inspiring as he gave us a wonderful chat the entire drive about the History of the area. As soon as we pulled out onto the road leaving the airport we saw Giraffe, Baboons, Elephant, and various antelope on the sides of the road as we drove to Djuma. It was so exciting to see that as soon as your feet touch the ground in South Africa.
Arriving at the Gowrie Gate to the Sabi Sands, we were met by Zaheer and checked in with the Rangers, and then a short drive to the beautiful Djuma Private Game Reserve. Shaheen was awaiting us at the Vuyatela Lodge & Galago Camp. We stayed at the Galego section. The grounds of the lodges were just lovely and landscaped to perfection. Our private bungalow was beautiful and roomy with all the amenities you could desire, from a lovely outdoor shower to a huge indoor deep bathtub for a hot bubble bath, and even chocolate on the pillows with a daily menu of the meals to be served each day. The food served to us 3x a day was AMAZING, to say the least. You never walked away hungry. The ladies of Djuma who cooked and did all the housekeeping can not be left out, they were all fabulous.
Our Djuma guide for the week was Rexon, and our tracker was Mike. They were absolutely the BEST in making every game drive experience memorable. The places you would never believe a vehicle could go thru, Rexon made it easy. He always explained everything in great detail and we learned so much. We had the best of care from the drinks and snacks on the drive to having Rain Ponchos for us when we least expected to have any wet weather.
Our sightings were spectacular...Multiple leopard sightings! Tracking a pride of lions with 9 little cubs and 2 Large Males, resting in the shade on a hot afternoon, watching in awe as the little ones nursed. Following a young leopardess on her morning hunt in the golden light at Sunrise made for beautiful photography. All of the general animals from the birds, to multiple herds of Elephants, Rhino, Impala, Nyala, Kudu, Zebra, Wildebeest, Warthog, Mongoose, Hippo, and Giraffe was all so very special. I have to say, for a Photographic Safari, we were always placed in the most perfect positions to get that once in a lifetime shot, every time. Tracking a drag mark across the road, and through the bush, to find a half-eaten python stashed under a log and followed the tracks to a female leopard with week old cubbies in the den was epic. Following another young leopard from drinking at a pan to settling upon a termite mound at sunset in the background was breathtaking. The perfect African Sunset. Then traveling thru the open wild as the light fades away and parking next to a lone male lion resting in the evening darkness, waiting, as if on cue, to have him lift his head and call out to his pride and his brothers who had gone off far away just absolutely vibrates within your entire body and grabs your soul. Absolute MAGIC!
All the people in our group for the week were just the most lovely individuals. Strangers coming together on Safari, with the love of the animals and the Wild African bush, but at the end of our time, we all left feeling like a family and it was hard to part and say goodbye.
This truly is a wonderful Safari company with very kind, caring, knowledgable, professional individuals. I would highly recommend contacting them to make all your Safari dreams come true. I can't wait to get back and do it all over again.
