I learned so much about Durban in such a short time period and was very thankful. We did the one day safari and... More

What a disappointment this trip was. Having used Tim Brown Tours before we were expecting the same standard. In fact our trip had been contracted out to a guide who himself contracted it out. Assumptions had been made that as we are in our 60s we would not want to do any proper hiking. The guide, himself in his 60s,... More

We booked a three day two night safari tour and it exceeded our expectations. Our guide, Sebu, was experienced informative and attentive. Everything was first class and I would have no hesitation in recommending Tim Brown to anyone looking for a top quality tour.

Excellent day made even better by Dick our guide who was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Wonderful opportunity to see animals in their natural environment. So much squeezed into so short a time. Can't praise the guide too highly always prepared to go the extra mile to make the day what we wanted and so informative from start to finish. Shame... More

Used the opportunity of a business trip to SA to see a bit of the surroundings and the great reviews on TripAdvisor made me go along with Tim Brown tours. Not a minute of regret! Although it's a long drive for just a day, the experience was unforgettable. Amazing landscape and seeing beautiful elephants, giraffes, rhinos, buffalo, zebras, etc. even... More

It all started with watching the movie "The Lion King".... Having watched the Lion King after many years at the request of my son (he's a precocious 5-year-old) I was once again drawn into that amazing feeling of wonder for all the natural treasure that Africa holds. My son was for days after asking all sorts of questions and mimicking... More
