  • Having been to South Africa and on safari before, I was excited to take a group of eight university students volunteering for two weeks just outside of Durban on a weekend excursion. After hours of searching the internet trying to find the “right” tour operator for my students, I came across Tim Brown Tours and was initially impressed by the fact that Tim Brown with Tim Brown Tours was voted the best nature Tour guide in South Africa at the Lilizela national Tourism Awards 2018. As I worked with the team at Tim Brown Tours, I continued to be impressed by their responsiveness, helpfulness, and all-around professionalism. As I was coordinating a student group with only two free days, Tim Brown Tours was flexible with planning our excursion schedule and most attentive to particular requests, such as change in accommodation meet the group’s needs. And in only two days, the group was able to take in all that the Cat Rehabilitation Centre and Hluhluwe Game Reserve had to offer, as well as St. Lucia Estuary-Isimangeliso Wetland Park in May, 2019. We were pleasantly surprised to have Tim Brown himself as our guide! After picking us up at our accommodation just outside of Durban, onto the Cat Rehabilitation Centre we went where the group toured and was able take photos and even selfie’s sitting (and even lying) besides beautiful cheetahs. Then onto Hluhluwe Game Reserve, where within moments of entering the Game Reserve we met a parade of elephants playing in a mud hole. And Tim’s expertise quickly became evident to the group, so much so that the students “squished” in the safari vehicle just so that Tim could join. Over the course of the afternoon, evening, and next morning on our private safari drives, the group saw three more of the Big 5 - a pride of lions (twice!), rhino, and buffalo – as well as many more exquisite animals such as chameleon, owl, warthog, impala, waterbuck, and zebra. And when it came time to leave the Game Reserve, and the group had only seen giraffe from afar through binoculars, in true guide fashion Tim went out of his way to track down a group of giraffe so that everyone in the group could go home happy. And then the perfect ending to our weekend excursion - St. Lucia Estuary where the group had a restful, yet entertaining (thanks to the hippo’s) boat cruise through the beautiful Wetland Park. The entire time that the group was with Tim Brown Tours, from pick up and arriving safely back to our accommodation and EVERYTHING in between, we were in excellent hands and above all the group had an unforgettable experience! Thank you Tim Brown and Tim Brown Tours!!! I cannot wait to book again with my next group in October, 2019!!!
  • I booked the ‘Hluhluwe Imfolozi “Big 5” Game Reserve and St. Lucia – 2 Days/1 Night Safari’ with Tim Brown Tours for myself and two others. While planning this trip, I reached out to the several tour operators in Durban that offer such tours to Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park. Tim Brown Tours immediately stood out. Praised on the Internet, the company’s excellent reviews promised a great experience. From the planning process to the time of booking, I received nothing but outstanding customer service from Tim Brown Tours. Communication was never an issue—the staff at Tim Brown Tours replied to my emails in a timely fashion and made sure to address each question, comment, and concern. We felt very privileged to have Tim Brown himself as our guide for the tour. Tim’s friendly, welcoming personality and energy radiated from the moment he greeted us in Durban. Conversations were easy—we shared the same sense of humor. Most importantly, Tim is incredibly passionate. It was evident that he loves his job, which made the experience even better for us. During the long drives, Tim kept us informed with bits and pieces of the area’s history and other information. He is very knowledgeable, and was able to answer all of our questions without any hesitation. We learned so much during our two days with Tim. Meanwhile, he made sure that we were comfortable throughout the trip—he was very attentive to our needs and requests. I was astonished by the level of service we received from Tim. He really was determined to provide us with the best experience possible. Such a great guy. Overall, Tim was a delightful guide and lived up to (and exceeded) my expectations. I highly recommend Tim Brown Tours.
  • Fantastic customer service, perfectly managed tour and our guide was really informative and encouraged us to ask questions. Highly recommend Tim Brown Tours for a Safari .
  • Hluhluwe Imfolozi Big 5 Day Safari is not to be missed Our guide was exceptionally knowledgeable and we had the most amazing sightings. From the moment we were collected from our accommodation in Durban to the moment of drop-off was unforgettable. I would highly recommend using Tim Brown Tours for a Safari. We will be back and may do the Big 5 Overnight Safari or possibly the Drakensberg. We are still undecided about which tour/safari to do but we are very sure on who we will be using!
