Customer Reviews

We had a wonderful trip to the Featherbed Nature Reserve. Both of our guides were excellent and we enjoyed the lunch tremendously. No suggestions at all as to how the experience can be improved. - Darlene Rushing

An excellent morning trip - great value for money. We were pleasantly surprised by the amount of vegetation considering the fire in 2017, and had been expecting there to be less. The ride to the top in the trucks gave great views over the Knysna Lagoon and the walk back was easy with plenty of interest to see. The buffet lunch was superb and in a beautiful setting. Highly recommend this trip. - Carolyn Andrew
