Why choose Doug and Jan as your companion guides?
Our points of difference which makes these tours unique:
- Both are internationally renowned as two genuine, fun loving professional nature guides

We find with many of our private tours we form such a bond with our visitors that we all feel more like friends than tour guides. We do however ensure you have as much private time each day as you would like, and also include some days for options. We ensure every moment runs smoothly and has the opportunity to be flexible depending on you and the weather.
Our vehicles are luxury Volkswagons, immaculately maintained, fully equipped and air-conditioned to provide the very best in luxury travel.
For families, groups of friends, or business groups larger than 8 people, we hire a luxury mini coach.
