    We are a family of 7 with three adult sons , daughter in law and 16 year old daughter that planned a 16 day trip to South Africa. In the middle of the trip, my husband and youngest son planned a safari hunt in Policawani.  Ian was hired to meet us in Johannesburg to help navigate entry with guns, fly with us to cape town for two days of family tours, get the boys off to their hunt and then take the remaining five to Durban, St Lucas and eventually to Kruger national park where the hunters rejoined the family. 

    Ian is trustworthy, knowledgeable, street smart, and flexible.  He quickly assessed our family dynamics and fit right in.  He allowed us to  change plans  to fit our new found  knowledge of a beautiful country.  Ian guided us through an onset of  ranaulds syndrome in my  daughter and a bout of severe gastrointestinal  issues in my daughter in law, while also securing rugby tickets for the family and  joining us for a suburb dinner with friends of friends. All while keeping us safe, educating us, and showing us the best his country has to show while answering our questions  on it's often turbulent history.  

    In short,  you could not ask for a better guide.
