Bushtrails provided the best family vacation we have taken in decades! I cannot imagine a more informative or enjoyable way of touring Namibia and southern Africa. Jaco is an expert travel guide / companion (and excellent chef) who made us feel comfortable and safe throughout our first-time camping safari. So many great family memories. We highly recommend to all!

We have utilized BushTrails’s services for two different safaris. Not only have we had the best experiences but it has been the best way to take a vacation. I wish BushTrails could coordinate and guide all of our global vacations!

An adventure with Jaco is priceless! He will truly listen to the kind of adventure you would like to have and deliver so much more! My wife and I had an amazing off the beaten path experience with a complete stranger and left with memories of a life time, but the best of part of the whole trip was gaining a friend, who I now consider my brother.

My wife and I have travelled with Jaco for close to 5 weeks over the course of 2 trips to Namibia and Botswana. We have stayed in various accommodations, from 4 star lodges to bush camps in tents. We travelled primarily to photograph wildlife. Jaco has an intimate knowledge of both countries and our travels have been absolutely superb in every respect. We were able to visit areas only a local would know about and his knowledge of the countries and wildlife is first rate. He also happens to be a great guide and good company, as well as an excellent cook. For anyone looking for an up close and personal experience travelling this part of Africa you cannot go wrong with BushTrails. Highly recommended!!

"Thank you Pieter. I just checked out the new site. Beautiful. Easy to browse. Great pictures! But, really, it's hard to express the emotions that these activities evoke. The friendliness of the people that we met. Or the memories that people will take home with them. We never tire of talking with folks about our trips. "
