A holiday of a Lifetime with Explendor Tours
Breathtaking! Every part of this vacation was exceptional. Our tour guide Stephen and Emily made this a trip of a lifetime for my family. We spent 3 weeks in Botswana, Zambia and South Africa traveling around viewing the wildlife and I can say we were impressed. We saw every animal we wanted to see in the wild, not just at the sanctuaries with the exception of a cheetah, which we did see at an endangered species centre. All of our accommodations were excellent but the girls at Rivernest Boutique Cottages made us feel like part of the family.
If you want to be up close with the elephants, Elephant Sands is the place to stay. We watched them frolic in the waterhole for hours.
I think anyone travelling to South Africa should book their trip with Explendor Tours, they will not be disappointed.
Thanks again to Stephen and Emily for making our vacation one we will never forget, you were amazing hosts, we will miss you both.

An amazing trip made just for us.
Explendor Tours was great with staying in contact from the day we began our email exchanges. They were helpful in creating the exact tour that we wanted. Once on the ground, we had a private tour with guide Stephen and Emily. They are both wonderful people who go out of their way to accommodate your wants and needs on the trip.
We felt very looked after and would recommend Explendor Tours to anyone. You can't go wrong with them.

One "lekker "holiday
We ended up booking our holiday quite late and were lucky enough to find that explendor tours still had time! The best thing that ever happened to us! Stephen and Emily were the best guides we could have wished for! They put in all the time and effort to make it the best holiday we could ever wish for! They were both such a laugh and we genuinely had a fantastic time! Honestly, it was like being on holiday with a group of friends! It was a sweet lekker- lekker time! We are already thinking about our next trip with Stephen and Emily!

A lifetime experience!
More than expected, Steve an incredible guide!!. the accommodations and meals were good. 100% recommended



We spent 14 days on safari with Stephen & Gerhardt. They introduced us to the beauty, the animals, and the people of the Kalahari. We stayed in wonderful hotels, visited spectacular private reserves, and got off the beaten path to have close up encounters with the animals of Africa. From Kudus to Elands, Giraffes to Zebras, Lions to Elephants to Cape Buffalos, we had multiple sightings of all of them. Our guides were knowledgeable, familiar with the local people and adventures, and treated us like we royalty. A flawless vacation, with memories for a lifetime.

Stephen and Chantel provided my wife and I with a truly incredible experience through South Africa, Botswana, and Zimbabwe. Stephen's knowledge, and overall personal skills with everyone he encounters is something to behold. If you want to see wildlife, he will do his utmost to find it.

An educational trip from Graskop to Pretoria with him. He provided outstanding natural history interpretation, great historic and cultural discussions, and great photo stops along the way.

My mother at 84 yrs is a Matriarch of note and generally complains about everything and anything, However in Stephens' company, the dour complaining Matriarch, became a young -at-heart Lady, mesmerized and thrilled by his intrepid and qualified leadership, his knowledge left us all gaping with awe. My mother was totally absorbed and hung on every word Stephen had to impart.
