Having lived, worked and travelled extensively throughout Africa over the last decade I honestly thought I knew everything about safaris and wildlife on the Dark Continent. Spending a week in the bush with Johan and Frank made me realise there’s so much more to learn when it comes to understanding the beauty, history and magnitude of Southern Africa. From the years they’ve spent there as a family, their complete understanding of the wildlife - how to track and see it, the landscapes - how to explore and enjoy them, and the culture - how to immerse yourself in every aspect of it, is shared in a friendly, personal and adventurous way.

I have now had two safaris with the Steenhuisens. The impact each trip had on me was like nothing else I’ve ever experienced. Nothing has made me question my life priorities as much as this time spent immersed in nature. You simply feel so alive. The Steenhuisen version of this type of adventure is truly the icing on the cake.

The African "bush" experience is one on which you can place no value other than priceless. Integral to that experience is the passion and knowledge that comes from deep understanding and time in the game. Johan and his team are blessed with all the required elements. I couldn't recommend them more highly

To Whom It May Concern.
This is to confirm that we have travelled extensively through Sth Africa, Botswana, Namibia on two separate occasions with the Steenhuisen group. Each of these trips has been extensive both in time spent in these countries and the planning that took place. We enjoyed both trips immensely and the planning and research and knowledge of each area by the Steenhuisens was outstanding. I would highly recommend this group to anyone who wishes to see these countries in a relaxed atmosphere with safety and knowledge from the guides in the forefront plus, above all… having fun !!

When they said wear natural colour clothing I thought Blue would be fine, I mean the sky is Blue? Thankfully the experience and resourcfullness of safariFrank kept me safe and secure on our adventures through the wilderness, where we got up close with Buffalo, Elephant and Rhino. There was never a dull moment and driving around the game reserve looking and learning about the different habitats and mini ecosystems was amazing. I highly recommend the trip it was a real eye opener seeing nature in such a raw state of being.

My travel with the Steenhuisen’s to South Africa was nothing short of life changing. Not only was South Africa magnificently beautiful in a way I just could not have appreciated before I had actually experienced it, but the authentic, ‘real South Africa’ experience that only a native South African who genuinely loves their country, made all the difference. I’d go back in a heartbeat.

I have travelled twice to Africa with the Steenhuisen’s. South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Namibia. Tremendous attention is paid to planning and detail. Eventualities are all well anticipated. For a newcomer to Africa you are quickly put into your comfort zone. There is never a shortage of adventure, experiences, good discussion, good food and drink. The Steenhuisen’s have a feeling for Africa, it’s people, it’s wildlife, it’s environment, it’s past and it’s future. They have not only given me the best 2 holidays that I have ever had but they have forced me to reach inside and re-evaluate many of my ideals and ideas about this great continent. They have also created an itch that I do not think that I will ever be able to completely scratch! Go with safarifrank and explore one of the greatest parts of this earth.

Jenny and I, visited Ingwelala with Johan and Welna in July 2013. The trip was a wonderful TRUE bush experience and the evenings were the highlight! Night viewing provided such a range of high level exposure to Hyenas, Leopards, Buffalo, Elephant and Lion. The chest wrenching sound of the mature male Lion’s full roar right next to us, will always be etched in the memory banks! Naturally this experience is predicated on one’s hosts having a fundamental affiliation with this environment. Our bush experiences with Johan and Welna have always been spectacular. Thanks a million and good luck with your ventures.
