Client Feedback

  • I did not plan to stay with Judie and Bruce but i think that this was the best part of my journey. Sometimes you do meet people in your life where you do have a good vibe with. It is unbelievable that you can have that kind of connection after a couple of hours. They help you out if you need their help, the give you the right advice if you ask for it. They are very professional in what they do and there heart is on the right place. I learnt a lot about the bush, there are so knowledgeable and i spent one year in the bush before i met them. I did not spend only that first night at there place. I have been back twice to spend more time with them. I hope to keep in touch with them for a long time. I will be a visitor again when i will visit them but it feels as a member of the family.

Rain is revered; we pray for it, dance for... read more »

Things go croak and jump in the night.

During this season of plenty, our nights in the bush are filled with a cacophony of sounds that are often unrecognisable. Frogs are responsible for many of these and even for the most determined nocturnal explorer, the frogs in question can be very difficult to find. They can be tiny, well camouflaged and concealed in... read more »
