Heike, Jasmine and crew,

While the response is somewhat delayed it doesn’t diminish the thanks from us all for your efforts in making our second trip to Makutsi even more enjoyable than our first. Yours and Karl’s efforts to not only find but get us to see “the throw rug” known as Zero was very much appreciated by all of us old buggers from Western Australia. The opportunity to see the old guy was yet another highlight for us, Zero probably was over “bloody tourists” well and truly interrupting his afternoon snooze. Between the rhinos, ostrich, honey badgers, cheetahs and leopard we were lucky to fit the moggy into the schedule. Attached are a couple of pic’s I took of a rhino just “chilling” that Natalie and Dereck found while on the Simba drive. You probably have many but they are special to me at least. Undoubtably we will return as we now have the tented camp to include into the mix as well as renewing the general banter enjoyed with all of the guides and staff.

Cheers / Jeff Howe


Hello Makutsi team!!

We have finally had 5 minutes to send you an email of thanks for our wonderful stay at Makutsi! Everything about our stay there was fantastic – we cannot speak highly enough of the experience we had there. A huge thank you to Natalie, Derek and Ralph as they were the guides that took us on our drives and tours etc. Every single time we went out we had a new experience and these three guides were an integral part our enjoyment!!! Natalie, in particular, was so passionate and so friendly and she made our safari drives and our tour to the local village so enjoyable through her enthusiasm and respect for the local people and culture. We thoroughly enjoyed spending time with her and thank her so much for sharing her stories and experiences with us. On another personal note, we cannot thank you enough for the sunset drive with Derek you organised for us on the night of Jacob’s birthday. It was absolutely the perfect way to celebrate the occasion in a very personal and private way which is exactly what we wanted! We hope Derek has as much of an amazing experience here in Australia as we had in Africa – feel free to give him our contact details should he need anything while he is in Sydney!! The accommodation was always immaculately cleaned, and throughout the entire week we were so well fed!! Our thanks to all the workers who together made our stay so memorable and enjoyable. As you know, our safari trip was the end of a 7 week holiday around Europe and the UK as well – but now in talking to family and friends, our experiences in Africa are by far our highlights. Thank you to the Weber family, and all of the staff, for welcoming us into your home and creating such an amazing experience. Kind regards

Megan and Jacob Peters / Sydney, Australia
