Praise from Natural Habitat travelers:

E. Schmitt

"This was the most fantastic trip. I have been on Safari with other companies and other guides but this was 400% better. Our leader Victor was very good at his tracking, he was humble, informative, gracious. I cannot say enough about him. I feel very blessed to have this Botswana guide versus a South African guide for this trip. Awesome individual."

K. Farrar
"Victor was wonderful. His expertise and professionalism made this trip the extraordinary adventure that it was. He has a great knowledge of African animals. trees, birds, etc. Identified tracks, bird and animal sounds, etc. He anticipated where an animal was going or was going to do. He always answered my questions. Very aware of giving us the opportunity to get good pictures via location of the vehicle and the sun. Would definitely take a trip again with him as the guide."

S. Le Blancq
"Victor was an exemplary expedition leader. We could not have wished for a better guide. He was deeply knowledgeable, very personable, funny, patient and just plain good company."

P. Prochazka
"I cannot give high enough ratings to Victor. He was an outstanding leader and guide in all aspects. I truly believe he made our trip a memorable one. His skill and knowledge were unsurpassed. He worked tirelessly to accomodate us, educate us, and locate the wildlife (tracking, etc.) while maintaining a true environmental ethic and respect for the wild animals."

S. Johnson
"Our leader Victor was very good at his tracking, he was humble, informative, gracious. I cannot say enough about him. I feel very blessed to have this Botswana guide versus a South African guide for this trip. Awesome individual. If ever I come back to Botswana I would like him to be my guide. You should be very proud to have him as an employee. I can not say enough about him."
