"We had an amazing time on a beach/bush safari with Jonathan in the Bazaruto Archipelago and Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Park. We spent a few days on the beach and island hopping the pristine islands of the archipelago and even saw dolphins and humpback whales, before spending a day driving to the park. There we saw elephants, lions, zebra, buffalo, and all kinds of birds. Jonathan is very knowledgeable about the bush and recognizes birds from their calls, he can also track all sorts of animals and showed us where a bush pig had been from the tracks. He even brought us tracking a black rhino on foot, which was extremely exciting and a once in a lifetime experience. Not to be missed. The trip was run smoothly and professionally and my family and I loved it." -Isabelle, UK
"We had an incredible time on our safari. This is a truly one of a kind experience - we were able to see dolphins and a sea turtle as well as zebra and wildebeest. Amazing bush and beach excursion and definitely a must when visiting here." -Chris, Sweden
"If you are wanting something a little different from the standard holiday faire, you can not
do better than putting yourself in the hands of Jonathon Retzlaff of Vilancolos canoe safaris.
We were blown away by the beauty and diversity of the area, the relaxed hakuna matata feel and the incredible depth of knowledge that Jonathan has.
He has the incredible ability of seeing the smallest details, things that would pass
most people became visible, we photographed things that we would never have seen and it was worth every penny.
We will go back in a heartbeat and can't recommend this company and experience highly enough, absolutely the best in the business." -Steve, UK
"Would highly recommend! Jonny was really knowledgable and passionate about the wetlands. We were picked up from our hotel and chatted about the town and area as we made our way to the wetlands where we spent a few hours being paddled through the old hippo channels. We enjoyed a beer while the sun went down and waited for the fireflies to come out- I’ve never seen so many in my life and I’ve done similar things in Borneo and the Amazon. Really enjoyable evening thank you." -Caoire, UK
"Had a fantastic time on the river with Jay. Went on the evening trip and seeing the sunset followed by the fireflies was truly amazing, and for the ones who are into birds its definitely a must-see in Vilanculos. Not to be missed!" -Irinja, South Africa
