“Dear Ivor, Ryan and Chase

On behalf of the Wildlands Conservation Trust, we would like to thank Zululand Walking Safaris for leading the 2012 Rhino Trek, a fund raising event in partnership with Save the Rhino in the UK, allowing people to experience walking through big 5 country in Zululand, and raising money for rhino conservation. Your professionalism in leading the trail was remarkable, and in particular in making people who are novices to walking in the bush feel comfortable and totally at home. Everyone on the trail had a fantastic experience, which was made possible by your guides knowledge of the area, add more value to their experience.

Thanks again, and we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Zululand Walking Safaris to anyone wanting a genuine Zululand bushveld trail experience.

Kind regards,
Kevin McCann”

“Dear Ivor,

I am writing to thank you for leading Save the Rhino’s Rhino Trek South Africa 2012. Myself and the other trekkers very much enjoyed the five day walk through Somkhanda and Zululand Rhino Reserve – it really was a once in a lifetime experience we’ll never forget.

We were particularly pleased to have learnt so much along the way – from the tiny creatures and plants to the Big 5. Seeing the white rhino and calf was a huge highlight, as was being so close a bull elephant. You were expert at keeping the group safe and it was great to learn about conservation issues on the ground.

I would highly recommend your walking safaris and would be happy to be contacted by anyone thinking about taking part.

Many thanks for a great trek,
Jo Paulson
Events Manager”

“Hi Ivor,

Just to say a big thank you for the amazing trip in the bush. You couldn’t have been more informative about the animals and your knowledge of the environment and nature in general was extremely informative. To go on a five day trek out with the wild animals was an incredible experience and one I will always remember. It is also good to know one is in safe hands when doing something so different and potentially dangerous, so thank you for that.

I would also like to thank you for treating my blisters so expertly. Glad you had your medical kit with you!

It was a very professional trip all round.”


“…..Thank you also to Ivor, Chase and Dylan for an amazing walk through the ZRR. Your knowledge (and sharing of that knowledge) brings the South African bush and all that she hides ALIVE!
As you know, this was my second walk for Save the Rhino and I grew up visiting game reserves as I grew up in South Africa, yet still I learned so much this time too.
You guys are so very special……”

“What an amazing experience to work with such a dedicated and professional team of trail guides. We employed the services of Zululand Walking Safaris for a two week period, which required a self-motivated team to co-ordinate and manage a large group of students while providing them with a top-class bush-skills trail experience. The trail guides out-performed themselves and I did not have a single moment of worry about the students safety. Thanks to Ivor and his team for their professionalism! – Simon Morgan, Wildlife ACT”
