    We absolutely loved our Addo elephant experience with Alan‘s Tour. The entire day was full of adventure and we had such a great time with our tour guide Andrew. He had an incredible knowlegde of all the animals and amazing life stories to tell troughout the day. The email communication was very great and very quick before booking the tour. All informations were provided and you had nothing to worry about. We saw loads of animals, Elefant‘s, Kunos, Zebras etc and even the lions came out. The lunch provided was very good as well. Overall an absolutely great experience and I can highly recommend booking tours with Alan‘s Tours.

    What an amazing experience. Andrew our guide was wonderful. Very knowledgeable, friendly and entertaining. He is certainly very passionate about what he does and was able to tell us something about everything we saw. Highly recommend this company and of you get to choose your guide ask for Andrew

    We had outstanding sightings of elephants also of the babies. The big suprise were the meerkats. We had a coffee stop in the morning and lunch. You get a lot of water from the cool box. I could make so beautiful photos because Andy put his car for the right sighting. Thank you so much Andy for this wonderful experience in the Addo Elephant Park!

    We had a fabulous day and would definite recommend this tour to anyone We would especially like to thank Mike for the day also, his knowledge was fantastic and we all enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. We would love to come back to South Africa one day as there was so much we didn't get to see and will definitely be looking up Alan's Tours if/when we do.

    Please thank Alan (once again) for the two great tours and my time with him, which was very informative and which I enjoyed immensely. I will certainly follow available tours on your Web site and book another one, if I can manage to get down your way in the future.

    It really was a wonderful trip from PE to Cape Town - loved it. Each aspect of our holiday from the Queen Elizabeth to the Garden route to the Falls to the animals of Chobe was different and wonderful. Again thank you both for a wonderful Holliday.

    Alan is absolutely AMAZING. You can tell he has a lot of experience,is a source of knowledge and very passionate about the animals. He knows exactly when and where they will appear. We were constantly in the right place at the right time. We highly recommend Alan for your Addo Tour. It was a memorable experience that we will treasure for the rest of our lives!!
  • m_dpp_004c30.jpg More Sandra. 30 May 2018
    Thank you again for the lovely photos. Your company offers an excellent service and we will certainly recommend them to our friends.
  • m_img_2153kl61.jpg More Lucy. 27 May 2018
    I would wholeheartedly recommend Alan Tours to anyone looking for a professional and truly knowledgeable guide. Alan's knowledge of the wildlife was especially informative, because this was my first visit to Africa.
  • m_img_0092j62.jpg More John. 26 May 2018
    Both Alan and Andrew are very passionate about their job and were more than happy to answer any questions we asked. We had indeed enjoyed a fantastic day and most of it was down to Alan Tours. I can honestly say that if anyone is thinking of the day experience at Addo then Alan's tour company is the one to go with.

    Thank you for the link and the photos. We had a great time, Tiina loved it to bits!!!!!!
  • m_12375.jpg More Lander. 25 May 2018
    To be honest we couldn’t have had a better tourguide. Andrew could answer on every question we shot at him and stopped when someone shouted when we saw something. A great guide to have. The experience was one to remember! I would strongly recomment someone that experienced and adventures as him!! As WE strongly recomment Andrew and Addo park to everyone who would visit SouthAfrica or a national park in that mather.

    Iain and Rachel came home with great reports and photos to document the fun and animal adventures they had with Alan. From start to finish I was very pleased with your responsiveness and effective communication throughout the booking process. Bottom line is that I am sure we all will recommend Alan Tours to any friends or relations who plan to visit Africa. Iain and Rachel said the would love to see Kruger with Alan sometime in the future.
  • m_img_2017c29.jpg More Carol. 13 May 2018
    I feel awful now as I intended writing immediately on my return to thank Alan for the amazing tour - we enjoyed it thoroughly and he was absolutely amazing. But, one gets home to a backlog and the normal routine and before long, its pushed right out of the way. I know I would have remembered the next time I plan a PE visit - sorry. Sending you both best regards and look forward to the next trip.

    Ich schwelge immer noch in Erinnerungen und bin immer wieder davon begeistert wie super es mit euch alles ablief. Ihr seid ein traumhaftes Team, mit dem Ich liebend gerne nochmal auf Tour gehen würde. Ein großes Lob geht an Alan und Malcom die die Reise unvergesslich gemacht haben. Immer ein Lächeln im Gesicht und stets einen Witzigen Spruch auf den Lippen
  • m_dscn1819m89.jpg More Ina. 18 April 2018
    Die Elefanten haben mich am meisten beeindruckt! Habt vielen Dank für den schönen, unvergesslichen Tag! Ganz liebe Grüße von uns 4 und falls wir mal wieder in der Gegend sind werden wir uns melden und auch unseren Freunden weiterempfehlen!
  • m_img_2317w55.jpg More Tina, Pamela, Kevin. 13 April 2018
    It was a totally unforgettable day-magical. Alan is so knowledgable and gave us history & insights along the way. We had a fabulous day in the Addo Park spotting buffalo, kudu, zebra, elephants in abundance & even lions. Very exciting! The drive through the mountain pass to the elephant ride in the afternoon was also an adventure in itself. Spending time with these gentle giants was awesome. We couldn’t have asked for a better day-totally recommended.
  • m_img_0337k10.jpg More Jana. 4 April 2018
    Von der ersten Anfrage bis zum Ende der Tour war alles super organisiert. Alle Fragen zuvor wurden immer schnell und ausführlich von Angelika beantwortet. Die Tour selbst wurde von Alan und seinem Kollegen aus Namibia geleitet. Es war einfach unglaublich, Alan hat sich unglaublich bemüht, dass wir so viele Tiere wie möglich sehen und man hat sofort gemerkt mit welcher Leidenschaft er dabei ist.
  • m_img_0348k17.jpg More Kim. 28 March 2018
    No, I didn't see any lions on the day of my tour with Alan Tours, despite our little group's chant in an effort to make them appear, but a tremendous day was had nevertheless. The trip to Addo did not take too long and Alan provides informative, yet informal, commentary enroute. Once at Addo, there was a quick comfort break first up and then into the Park to view some amazing animals and scenery. A scrumptious light lunch at the Park's cafe finished off the morning's adventure nicely and then it was off again in search of more wildlife and those elusive lions. In fact, our search for those lions meant that by the time we left the Park, the sun was setting over it's beautiful landscape with a wonderful gathering of the many animals we had seen that day. Thanks for such an amazing experience.
  • m_img_1077a79.jpg More Angela. 25 March 2018
    Alan picked us up from our hotel, drove us to the park, and gave us a fantastic tour. He knows the park inside and out and is extremely knowledgeable about all of the animals. We saw elephants, lions, zebras, and all kinds of animals -- up close and personal! His van is clean and well-maintained, and we really enjoyed our time with him. Also, his prices are very reasonable. I give Alan Tours my highest recommendation.
  • m_img_0179.jpg More Colm. 21 March 2018
    Alan is, simply put, a phenomenal tour guide: he deeply and intuitively understands and cares about nature and, in particular, the amazing herbivores and carnivores which call Addo home. We learnt so much from him, got some amazing photos, and had a very close-up experience with many of the animals
  • m_img_1098a93.jpg More Angela. 19 March 2018
    It was a phenomenal tour and I plan to give him a great review on Trip Advisor. The photos are just terrific. Please give my best to Alan.

    Our tour guide,Malcom picked us from our accommodation right on time :-))He is an incredible wealth of knowledge and as my husband has a love for all living creatures,big and small:-))Malcom took the time to stop every time, my husband or Malcom spotted anything that moved:-)) In closing,we would highly recommend Alan Tours,we spent a most memorable day,that we will never forget!! The whole experience from booking,the Adventure into the park,the pictures we received that Malcom himself had taken,shortly after our Tour,makes "Alan Tours" stand above and beyond our other Safari experiences!!!
  • m_img_0661a28.jpg More Alexandra. 17 March 2018
    Wir haben den Tag sehr genossen, trotz dem Regen. Es war schön zu sehen wie sich die Tiere über den Regen freuen. Der Tag war super und sollten wir jemals nochmal nach Südafrika kommen, werden wir auf jedenfall nochmal eine Tour buchen.
  • m_img_0092j14.jpg More John. 16 March 2018
    As for Alan, if Diane and myself would have wished for the perfect guide on Safari then it is him. His passion for his job (although I very much doubt he sees it as work) is staggering. His knowledge, warmth, dedication, eye for detail is exemplary. It was an absolute pleasure to be in his company for the whole day. A word about Andrew as well, we felt so comfortable to have him with us in the vehicle, it was almost like having a friend coming with us for the day. Just a note to say thank you very much for everything you have done. Since my first contact with you many months ago to the actual day of the Safari your professionalism and attention to detail has been perfect.
  • m_img_0094j85.jpg More Menno. 15 March 2018
    OMG! I had such a great day with Alan today. Was really the best! If you are looking for a Addo guide; please don’t look any further and book your tot with Alan Tours. His knowledge about the parc, the animals, the wildlife etc is enormous! He is a enthusiastic guide who will go the extra mile. The communication with Angelika (who takes care of the whole back office) is very fast, friendly and smooth. I definately wish everyone this unforgettable experience. My advise; Don’t go yourself or with another guide. It was a day I will never forget!
  • m_dscn1517m14.jpg More Markus. 8 March 2018
    Ich freue mich immer noch über unseren Tag, der war wirklich unglaublich. Noch mehr wurde er geadelt, da mein Kollege der auch schon im Addo war, bisher nur 2 Elefanten zu gesicht bekommen hat. Trotz Wasserloch 22 usw. Was wir alles erleben durften ...... einfach Klasse.

    I would like to thank you for the very informative and enjoyable outing to the lighthouse yesterday afternoon. The learners and staff gained a great deal of knowledge while having a bit of an adventure. Thank you for your willingness to accommodate our many requests and for your patience on the tour itself. You have given us all an experience which we will treasure.

    Von der Anfrage bis zur Durchführung in kleiner Gruppe (4 Personen) war alles Perfekt geplant und es wurde ein herrlicher Tag mit Angelika. Abgesehen von den vielen Elefanten haben wir eine große Anzahl weiterer Tiere gesehen.Es war ein wunderschöner Tag mit Dir im Addopark. Insbesondere die vielen Elefanten haben uns beeindruckt. Z.Zt. sind wir auf der Rückreise nach Deutschland und müssen alle Eindrücke erst einmal verarbeiten.

    What can I say? we had a fantastic day!! We saw so much in one day it was amazing. A big thank you to Alan Tours (I can't recommend you enough) and especially to Malcolm. Such a gentlemen and a fountain of knowledge. Also being the only ones booked on the tour for that day made it seem like our own personal tour.
  • m_img_013684.jpg More Nick. 27 February 2018
    Alan met us off the boat and we had a good filling lunch at the yacht club (included), then it was off to Addo, where we stayed until minutes before park closure. Alan was friendly and informative throughout and took great care to ensure that everyone had a good view and took whatever photos they wanted, repositioning his vehicle as necessary. Alan clearly has a great knowledge and experience of the animals in the park, as a result of which we were able to experience some extraordinarily close encounters, especially with elephants, without distressing the animals.

    From our first contact with Angelika of Alan Tours to our goodby at the pier we felt that we could not have had a better experience. Everything was perfect from our pick up to drop off. Alan was perhaps the best guide we may have ever been with. All of the city tour stops he planned for us were terrific, his knowledge of the history, culture and current political and economic situations was excellent. His manner of imparting the information was concise and engaging; Alan knows how to tell an interesting story.
  • img_9834.jpg More Keith. 17 February 2018
    With Alan Tours once booked you just don't have to worry. They will be there as they are an extremely professional organization. We were fortunate and were picked up by Alan himself and had his van to ourselves. This man is a walking encyclopedia of everything in nature. Alan explains the various features along the coastline. His knowledge of everything around him is quite extraordinary and he was able to answer every (probably stupid) question we asked! If you are coming to PE and want a guaranteed excellent tour then Alan Tours are a huge recommendation

    Another wonderful day out with Alan, he covers everything from the animals, to bushes flora/butterflies/birds and dung beetles. Saw many different animals, hundreds of elephants with their babies, wart hogs and babies. No lions this year but a rhino and my husbands favourite animal, kudus.

    Von der ersten Anfrage bis zur Buchung hat uns Angelika sehr prompt mit ihren freundlichen Mails begleitet.Alan war sehr professionell, mit den anderen Guides in Kontakt und immer darauf bedacht, uns den besten Blick auf die Tiere zu ermöglichen. Wir haben von ihm viel über die Tiere, die kleinen und großen, ihr Verhalten und über die Bäume und Pflanzen im Addo gelernt. Er kennt sich sehr gut aus und vermittelt eine große Ruhe bei der Beobachtung und seine Liebe zur Natur ist spürbar.Diese Tour kann man nur empfehlen!

    The whole day was a great success and everything went smoothly. The commentary by Malcolm and Alan on the way was very informative and interesting and gave us further insights on the history and situation in S. Africa. Thank you very much for organizing it and please thank Malcolm and Alan as well for their excellent company and guidance.

    Malcolm was the guide I hoped to have...professional, attentive, knowledgeable and very pleasant to be with. He was intent on giving us the best tour with comments on the animals, answers to all our questions and dedication to finding the animals. We had a very fortunate day and saw many of the “big five”. I would highly recommend Alan Tours and especially Malcolm!

    Alan really knows his business very well-oriented knowledge of local characteristics and main talks to the other guides! of course you can take the car and to come to the park, but I'm sure you will not see lions
  • m_img_625210.jpg More Carol. 18 January 2018
    We took the big 7 tour which started with an amazing marine experience, when we were lucky enough to witness a bait ball which attracted hundreds of Gannets, Dolphin and some Bryde whales! Then on to Addo elephant park where we saw elephant close up as well as families gathering around water holes, lions shortly after a kill, lots of Zebra, Kudo, Bat eared fox and more. We really enjoyed our stay in the camp listening to the animals during the night, the tour made all the better because of Alans knowledge of the animals and ability to spot them.
  • m_img_0071a.jpg More Ron. 15 January 2018
    You provided Gill and me with an excellent day’s outing in Addo Elephant Park, then you top it off with a slide show that contains a range of photographs that are excellent in composition, sharpness and colour.
