Holiday review by Mr. Christopher Weston-Simons

Name: Mr. Christopher Weston-Simons

Date of trip: 16/08/2015

Number of people: 2

Our main purpose was to visit our son and to gain some insight into the local cultures and problems. We were able to achieve this with him, but the other parts of our visit allowed us to see a wider view. We drove about 2,000 km in all. Highlights were: The Zulu Battlefields The cave paintings at Kamberg The game Whale watching at Rocktail

Tribes Service:

There seemed some confusion over our dates. We did not have the required references to check in at Hluhluwe National Park, which took a little sorting out. We had the request the number for collection to visit Rocktail Beech Camp, however the number supplied was the wrong one. So we had to sort this out ourselves.


We found the guides at the Zulu War sites excellent. We also found a guide ourselves to visit the cave paintings in the Kamberg Reserve, who was excellent and we would recommend visit to the paintings if anyone is staying in the area.

Social & Environmental Responsibility:

In our travels we tried to support the local community and craftsmen and women and knew that our tips made a difference.
