Read what Safari guest, course participants and students say about their experience with us.
Spent 5 days logging mentored hours towards my Trails Guide qualification with African Bush Co. under the mentorship and guidance of Massimo in a Big 5 reserve in the heart of Zululand. I walked out of there twice as confident in my walking and decision making abilities due to his expertise and experience. Whether you're a serious trailist or are just interested in immersing yourself on foot in a Big 5 reserve, Massimo is undoubtedly one of the best in the business to do it with. He is an absolute trails wizard. The overall experience will be very difficult to beat. Worth every cent - will definitely be back.

If you're planning to go on a safari i will truly recommend to go with Massi. He's a genuine man, full of dedication and knowledge about nature and has an amazing way of sharing his passion. We just spent 2 amazing weeks with him on a combo of safari and beach. The trip was tailor made for our interests. The first week on safari had daily trails and games drives, a lot of time to focus on both small little things and the big animals. The sightings was incredible and gave many good photo opportunities. Massi knows exactly how to park the vehicle to take the best pictures, and also gives you suggestions for settings on your camera. We did a sleepout under the beautiful cover of the milky-way. What magic to sleep next to the fire in a big five area🤩 The second week started with 4 days at the remote beaches of Sodwana Bay. A true paradise both for surfing and diving. The coral reefs has an incredible diversity, and is a must visit for all divers. We ended our trip in St Lucia, the perfect place for anyone who has an interest in birds. And you won't find a better bird guide than Massi, in the middel of a conversation he can point out birds from calls that you can barely hear. We attended a horseback safari that ended with kanter along the beach, sunset boat cruise with crocodiles and hippos, and last but not least a visit to iSimangaliso wetlands Park and Cape Vidal. So thank you Massi for an amazing and memorable trip, looking forward to go with you on safari again. 🥰

Highly recommended to anyone looking for mentorship or even just an amazing bush experience. Massimo is an outstanding teacher, guide, and trails mentor, and overall just an awesome human being! He really helped build my confidence and skills in walking trails and I will definitely be back.

The professional personalisation is just amazing,
The time taken not only just to walk and get encounters but to sit and discuss scenarios possible different out comes, and what reactions can and should be taken makes it so much more than just walking hours, you will get a much bigger picture about walking and approaching dangerous game
Fantastic experience in an awesome big 5 area. 2-3 encounters nearly every walk and of course Massi, who is one of the best out there. If not one of the most passionate than at least one of the most handsome guides and trainers in the bush.
Absolute 5 star experience

Massimo is my mentor and I could not ask for a better one. He is a great teacher and a person iI would trust with my life. I would not be the guide I am if not for him and his faith in me that I could make the grade.
