What our guests say...

  • Wildlife was at and above my expectations. I saw most of the mammals I had hoped to see (except Cheetah) and several that I didn’t expect. As regards birding I saw (mostly with the aid of my guide!) over 250 species on the Lawson’s tour (and nearly 400 in my 4 weeks in South Africa).

  • We saw an amazing variety of wildlife considering we only spent eight days on safari. It was particularly pleasing to see animals at such close quarters. It gave us a good opportunity to take some great pictures. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and so would like to rate it 10 on the Lawson Scale.

Dave’s highlight – the leopard in the tree in the Kruger, also enjoyed the different varieties of birds which I wasn’t expecting. Val’s highlights –... Read More

  • I would definitely rate Lawson’s as a 10. I had no worries about my stay---being transported from the airport to meet Leon, being assigned a room, being driven around all day, talking about the wildlife with Leon, the opportunity to photograph, the smells, the sounds, the good food was just perfect.
