What others thought

A belated and sincere "big five" thank you to all your team members for making the marathon trip to Entabeni Conservancy a truly memorable lifetime adventure for my daughter and me. Everyone we met was extraordinarily helpful, resourceful, and serviced our every needs. I am a non-runner since 2007 when my physician said those running days are over, but said I can walk as fast and long as I want. So it was so exciting to walk the half-marathon, to meet the many locals, participate with fellow marathoners from countries all around the earth, to be greeted by spectators, cared after by watchful Rangers and to safely walk a trail knowing/ seeing animals in their habitat.  For those who enjoy a day at the zoo, well this is the best way to experience animals. What a killer hill!  Loved it.  What a beautiful day and welcoming finish line!!!  What a party afterward!!!  Loved the safari's and trusted knowledgeable guides.  Thank you all so very much! Can't wait to do another trip.  We truly enjoyed our time and will highly recommend your group to others as the best marathon sponsors worldwide.

The whole trip was extremely well planned, there was always something to do, the people were awesome, and the overall experience is something that you will only ever get to experience once in a lifetime...unless you come back that is :)

The marathon was a fantastic experience. The safari game drives and other activities such as mountain biking, bush walks etc. made it a great holiday. Also, it was very well organised.
