All our friends who had visited SA had said what a wonderfull country it was so we came with high hopes and expectations, and were not disappointed thanks to Peter Augustinus of Afrika Unique, it will be a holiday we will remember for a Lifetime. Peter created a jam packed journey on the 10 Day Cape Spectacular, lots of the very best of the Western and Eastern Cape. Keeping us on a firm time schedule Peter ensured we had seen and done more things then most tourists would do in 4 weeks !. Each day had own special magical and fascinating moments from the wine cellers to the Meerkats, Canopy Tours, and all the game drives in the Eastern Cape plus ALL the viewings of Big 5. Our sincerest thanks to Peter for looking after us so well and givin us the Holiday of a Lifetime."

Right from our first contact via email following a speculative enquiry, Peter seemed to be someone who knew what he was doing, emails were anwsered promptly, references provided without hesitation, and the whole thing was organized with minumum fuss. We had made our own arrangements for our stay in Cape Town and our journey to Port Elizabeth, but after running our plans past Peter to be sure, he made some great recomendations which led us to change our plans, he organized our car hire and itenary with accomodation stopovers en route to Port Elizabeth, and our return flights to Cape Town WHAT A STAR. ALL The suggestions for things to see and do en route "Meerkat Man", "Monkeyland" Birds of Eden" etc were spot on. The 4 Day Safari was wonderfull, itenary well thought out giving us much variety of game, accomodation etc. We would have only seen a fraction of what we saw, had it not been for Peter, nothing was too much trouble, positioning vehile for best photo shots, in fact we seemed to get the best of everything, SERVICE, GAME DRIVES, SUNDOWNER DRIVE, ACCOMODATION, particular "WARTHOG LODGE, RHINO TRACKER "Gladman at Mvubu", highlited by the "Elephant Back Safari" was very special. A BIG THANK YOU, for making my 50th Birthday trip so "AFRIKA UNIQUE" !

Peter is certainly capable of pleasing all types of clientile as we saw when he could speak to others in several languages. Peter lived up to the promise of a 10 \"DAY SPECTACULAR\" a GREAT TRIP for both of us. The great service from the day we were fetched from the Cape Town Airport to our farewell in East London was absolutely fantastic. The great mixture of sights along with informative desriptions of all that we saw plus other historical information was exceptional. Starting with wineries through to garden route and coastal forests on to the wildlife areas of the Eastern Cape seeing all species in the several different parks visited, all our hopes of different game sightings were met. Peter is certainly capable of pleasing all types of clientile as we saw when he could speak to others in several languages. The standard of the whole \"safari\" from food, accomodation, and the great diverse of events in things to see and do were incredible. We are gratefull to have had someone so capable and enjoyable to share our experience of South Africa.
