The booking service did not have as down as having booked a guide. We arrived on the Sunday and there was no-one there. We did some bird watching ourselves along the river. When the Green Hub opened I went in and complained. Joe apologised, said nothing was on the system and arranged to meet us at 6.00 the next day. Joe was an excellent guide and a wonderful young man, I recommend him highly. Wreally enjoyed our tour and will do it again sometime.
I spent the day with Joe along the river looking at birds & seeking the finfoot. Joe was a credit to your organisation & to his country. His knowledge of the river and its birds was excellent. His enthusiasm was contagious. He brought the day alive and we found the finfoot at the end of the day. He was more than a birding guide. He was a guide to the culture of Durban and to his nation. It was a privilege to spend the day with him. The highlight of my stay in South Africa ( except for seeing my new grandson!!! ) Rom Rubycz
We had a great time birdwatching. Joe is a knowledgable and interesting bird guide and he has a passion for what he does. Joe would be a great credit to any organisation. I gather that as he is having to focus on developing cycle routes he will be passing over guiding to someone else. This is a great shame as he has a passion.for birding which shines through.
