    I would like to take this opportunity to say what an incredible time I had with Josh, Michael, Jurgen, Richard and Johan. The time and effort you all put in showed in the way we all thoroughly enjoyed the trip

    I am still not convinced that you didn’t do a background check on all the guests. The way we all got on so well and the very similar sense of humour we all had, was nothing short of amazing.

    Lastly, let me say that our trip was (without doubt) one of the most amazing bush experiences I have ever had.

    Thanks again, Lots of love, Jane.

  • I spent 8 days with At Close Quarters this past August at Djuma Private Game Preserve. It was an awesome 8 days - everyday was something new to view and learn while with Michael, Joshua and Heinrich. I am a novice photographer and they helped me along the way to take wonderful pictures. I hated to leave at the end of my time with At Close Quarters and can see another safari with them in my future. Now with their exciting news of new places to go it will be even harder to decide which safari to take with them. They are very caring about their quests and making sure that we were always happy and our needs where taken care of for the entire stay. I follow on Facebook and always smile when they post pictures because seeing the brings back so many wonderful memories of my time with At Close Quarters. Thanks to all with At Close Quarters for an awesome experience. Velma from Michigan.

  • To Joshua, Michael, Heinrich and Johan,

    This was my second adventure with At Close Quarters, and I hope to make another in the years to come.  You are kind, attentive, and gracious hosts.  I can attest to the fact that the meals you provide are scrumptious as I ate freely of your offerings and gained some excess baggage during my South African stay. The Sabi Sand is a area renown for its big cats and this trip provided your guests with a myriad of sightings of both lions and leopards and many cubs.  I hope the best for you in your guiding and photographic endeavors.  I certainly have, and will continue, to recommend you to anyone.  Thanks again for the wonderful time together with you, the lodge staff, guides and trackers, and the other guests.

    A wonderful thank you to the At Close Quarters team for an experience of a lifetime. We really enjoyed being with other photographers and the photographic teaching and coaching was of a very high standard. We also had a game viewing experience that was possibly unrepeatable with 6 Leopards and 15 Lions in one day. The hosts were relaxed, friendly, knowledgeable and very professional. The accommodation and food was excellent. All in all a most wonderful experience and I can without hesitation recommend At Close Quarters to anyone seeking an amazing photographic experience.
