My experience with the safari itinerary, staff, guides and events was wonderful. All were well thought out and executed, while the guides and staff remained comfortably informal and friendly. The two guides knowledge and willingness to share was very much appreciated and entertaining. I would highly recommend this safari package to my friends.

This trip was extremely well organized and facilitated. The accommodations and meals were beyond anything I could have imagined for mobile camping. Next time I'll bring my dry cleaning, too. The guides were very responsive to all of our needs, and so adept at tracking the animals we came to see. I would highly recommend Royale Wilderness to anyone. Many thanks to Johnny and Isa, and Bill for getting us all on board.

The safari was fantastic!!! D & D was professional to the max and their logistics was nothing short of incredible. Our family left yesterday and we spent the day with Meredith & Paul who could not have been more welcoming or gracious hosts. All in all, your planning was spectacular and you created a memory that will last a lifetime ??? Best regards Jim
