Customer Reviews

This remains a wonderful outing and a fantastic learning experience for our learners. Unfortunately the guides this year, and in particular the man who seemed to be in charge, were not as good as last year's. The man in charge slouched on the table while speaking to our learners and I felt he didn't share all the information with the learners. - Cordwalles-Hayley Tweedale

We went for the guided hike and canoe ride and it was amazing. Informative, fun, friendly and accommodating - I would definitely recommend it! - Michelle Van Der Westhuizen

Me and a group of honour's students in landscape architecture from the University of Pretoria were privileged to visit the uMngeni Guided walk through the mangrove forest. We had a fabulous experience with a very informative guide. Our guide knew so much about the ecology and could answer every question directed at him. It was a lovely experience and the students learned a lot and had a beautiful time in nature. Thank you kindly for making this possible and for teaching young people about the delicate composition and interactions of nature. Best regards Dr C A Breed, University of Pretoria - Dr C A Breed
