I would like to commend you on putting together and excellent itinerary for the Trans Botswana 4×4 trip. But, most of all I have to commend your staff!
I have very seldom been so impressed – their hard work, friendliness, dedication on making the trip as enjoyable for everyone and delivering such good service.
Cronje is an exceptional guide. His knowledge, his patience, his great personality and his respectfulness at all times! You are extremely lucky to have him as one of your team leaders.
Thanks Bhejane Adventures for another memorable trip. We live on an amazing planet and you provide the opportunity to explore it.
Graag wil ek baie dankie se vir die geleentheid om so ondervinding mee te maak. Die Classic Namibia toer was ‘n wonderlike avontuur.
Die toerleier het my verbaas. Hy was altyd vriendelik, altyd bereid om te help, planne te maak in buitengewone omstandighede en sy kennis van die omgewing het hy graag met toergangers gedeel en ek moet se in my opinie het hy regtig die ekstra myl gestap om almal te akkommodeer. ‘n Merkwaardige jongman wat ‘n groot aanwins vir julle besigheid is.
Die logistieke span was ook uitstekend. Altyd gereed met ‘n koffietjie en ‘n groot glimlag. Hoewel hulle omstandighede uitdagend was het ons heerlik ge-eet tot koek gekry wat hulle op die oop vuur gebak het!! (Ek kan nie eers een in ‘n oond bak nie!) Die daaglikse potbrood was natuurlik ook ‘n treffer. Die kampterein was gereed elke keer wanneer ons na ‘n lang dag daar opgedaag het en niks was te veel moeite vir hulle nie. Hulle het naderhand elkeen se voorkeur geken en sommer vroegtydig reggestaan.
Die toer was goed georganiseer en toergangers was deurentyd op hoogte van wat gebeur en volgende gaan gebeur. Hierdie vier manne het my beindruk en as dit nie vir hulle positiewe, hulpvaardige en vriendelike houding was nie kon dinge baie anders gewees het. Voorslag ouens voorwaar!!!
Ek hoop om in die toekoms weer ‘n toer met julle te kan mee maak.
We have the utmost praise for the team which took us on our Zambia and Malawi adventure, the team was led by Paul Wigley together with Danelle, Sanana and Ofentse .
The whole team worked so well together – nothing was too much trouble, they all went out of their way to make sure we all had a fantastic time. Sanana and Ofentse went ahead to make sure that our tents were ready for us on arrival and the food they prepared given the equipment available the countries we were in was outstanding, we never had a bad meal.
Paul and Danelle ensured that every lunch stop was an experience, and everything was fresh, how they achieved this we don’t know, but they did. Danelle was superb you would never have known that he was the new kid on the block, he was always attentive to the smallest detail and entertaining.
Paul, was a superstar of note. His knowledge is mind-boggling in its width and depth on every subject throughout the trip, either on the road or in camp, at all times he was available to assist in any way possible, this was particularly valuable when crossing border posts. In summary, it was a fantastic experience, this was echoed by everyone at the party, and we are looking forward to our next trip with Bhejane.
Philip and I just returned to Knysna after an epic Trans Botswana tour with Bhejane.
In my personal capacity, I would like to compliment our team under the leadership of Cronje Wessels.
Cronje managed our rather large group perfectly. Never seeming stressed, diplomatic, always getting us to our destination on time, sharing interesting information with us on the regions visited, pleasant, friendly and professional at all times, amongst others and simply a pleasure.
Ed, Sanana and Jarryd were also perfectly lovely and professional. The food was fantastic and it never ceased to amaze me how such a tiny team could produce such fabulous meals on time for such a large group, there was always more than enough. My only complaint is that the food was so delicious that I now have to cut back for a few weeks to fit back into my clothes!
It is my wish that we join another Bhejane tour within the year, perhaps Mozambique / Malawi or Natal.
Please convey my best wishes and deep gratitude to our lovely team.
We would like to reiterate just how wonderful our trip was with Phil and his crew on the Bhejane Desert Rivers tour. It was truly varied and exciting as well as relaxing trip and indeed Debra said that there was not a day that she did not have fun and enjoyment and I certainly echo 100% her sentiment.
It was truly an awesome adventure and a journey where the memories ( and the dust that now lives inside the Defender………….) will certainly remain for a long time. Phil’s team fed us and looked after us in a really great and safe manner and we can only say that God willing, we will be able to join in another adventure with Bhejane sometime in the not too distant future.
We wish you and Bhejane all Blessings and continued growth and success for the future.
We have arrived home safely after a truly wonderful trip to Botswana, Chobe National Park and Caprivi. Thank you to Lindsay and the team for working so hard to make it a very memorable holiday for us all, and especially Comfort and his excellent catering.
We would unhesitatingly recommend Bhejane to our friends. The three families from England have never experienced bush camping and they have all raved about the holiday.
This was our third holiday with Bhejane and we will come again!
Many thanks to you and your team
Herewith our heartfelt gratitude for everything you have done for us. Our Secrets of the Knysna Forest was so much more than expected. Our guide Mark was amazing and being all in one truck made it special. His knowledge about everything just too much to take in and I wish I had a tape recorder. Thank you.
Wow-what an awesome Trans Botswana tour we had this past week with Bhejane Adventures. This will be one of the holidays I will always remember – it was just plain LEKKER!!
The guys were so professional, and the food was just plain great – you can be very proud of the guys! Everything was so well planned and everybody on tour had a great time.
We are already looking forward to our next tour with you guys – please forward me the info for the Moz Bush to Coral tours 2020
Denise and I just returned from the Bhejane Kaokoland Desert Rivers tour and we were both enthralled with the scenery, quite magnificent! Dries ran the tour and for a 24-year-old he did a fantastic job and during his evening talks, everyone was focused on what he had to say which only showed that the man’s maturity was beyond his years.
Hansie and his team were great and with some new Bhejane recipes and I would say that out of the 11 tours I have done, this was the best!
Two more on the bucket list, Kgalagadi and the Bats and Bills in Zambia and will be booking that soon.
We have just returned from the Zambia Liuwa Plains Migration and are still glowing with happiness. We were guided by Cronje, assisted by Dries with Sanana and Ofentse looking after the camp.
What amazing young men! So passionate about their job, so passionate about wildlife. The food Sanana and Oftense provided was out of this world – I still dream of Oftense’s pot bread! Cronje’s knowledge and passion of the countries we drove in was infectious. He was calm and collected in every small crisis and nothing, ever was a problem or too much trouble.
We were looked after and treated royally. I cannot find a single fault and cannot think of a thing we would change – except to go for longer!
Well done, Bhejane, well done.
You have not seen the last of us!
Graag wil ons vir Bhejane baie dankie sê vir die heerlike toer saam met Cronje en sy span deur die Kgalagadi en Mabuasehube. Hulle vriendelike en gemoedelike hulpvaardigheid deurentyd en Comfort en Björn se heerlike cuisine het ons baie waardeer. Die pragtige gebaar van ‘n veldblom/gras rangskikking op die tafel met Valentine’s dag, het hulle sommer diep in ons harte gekruip.
Hierdie was ons 11de toer saam met Bhejane sedert 2010 en ons hoop van harte dat ons gesondheid hou om nog ‘n paar doen, al is dit om oues weer te herhaal.
Nogmaals baie dankie en baie sterkte met die groot organisasie om alles so klopdisselboom te laat verloop.
Ons het regtig elke oomblik van die toer geniet. Soos Andre se"Dit was die beste groep mense waarmee ons saam gery het". Die span wat Cronje, Bjorn, Gilbert en Comfort ingesluit het was altyd gereed om te help en al die vrae te beantwoord. Die kos was weereens uit die boeke en die koffie en water wat reg gestaan het, was nogal 'n voorreg en ons het dit baie geniet. Ons is spyt dat ons nie meermale saam met Bhejane kan toer nie, want elke toer is 'n belewenis.
I’ve been meaning to write to say what a wonderful trip we had with Cronje and his team through the Kgalagadi at the beginning of the month. They really were superb !!! Fantastic organisation, knowledge, food, people skills!! We would highly recommend Bhejane to our friends and hope to be able to do another trip in the not too distant future.
I feel that I have to extend a special thanks to you people for arranging the Bhejane Zululand Conservation Miracle 19 - 27 April, 2021 tour. The program was well developed and the team with Malcolm, Pete, Comfort and Tambiso was well prepared and the knowledge of Malcolm and Pete was extremely appreciated. The extras that Malcolm organized gave colour to the tour.
The food was once again at the high standard of Bhejane and the food crew must be commended.
Would you kindly forward this message to the crew.
Looking forward to tour with you in the future.
Thank you to Bhejane as an organization, for getting us out of our covid pandemic fog, and out into our beautiful country.
Each day was an adventure of unknown roads, passes (exhilarating and a bit nerve twitching) interesting towns such as Clanwilliam with its museum and veldskoen making shop, the stars explained and described in Sutherland, breath taking geology of mountains, fields and factory of tea and buchu (what hard work to produce my tea bag), caves like Stadsaal and Truitjieskraal to ponder the people who lived there before us, to see their paintings, to take in the temple like feeling of those gigantic stones and caves, and visits to character filled padstals and a winery, packed with goodies.
The fossils, unique plants such as the maartblomme in Niewoudtville which had us on our knees photographing their beauty and solemn prayerful churches with their Easter emblems still evident to contemplate.
A variety of ever different campsites some with rivers, pools, to swim in and enjoy and as much as we enjoyed our stay at the Lord Milner at Matjiesfontein on the last night of our trip, we missed our tent! So much to photograph, with so many sunset and sunrise colours...
We had the super team of Evan Naude, our photographic guide and tour leader, very ably assisted by Gilbert and Bjorn, camp setter-uppers and chefs(apart from tyre fixing etc)
They were professional, highly competent, and made camping great fun and easy. Meal time was a real treat enjoyed out in the open - not having to shop or cook! And very tasty meals they were
Evan was very knowledgeable, and enthusiastic, not only with his photographic knowledge guidance but also about our country, its geology, fauna and flora.
Please convey our thanks to them.
