GP Wentzel, G Adventures

Craig and I have worked together since 1999 and I can’t recommend him and the Safari Brothers team strongly enough. Craig has a passion for anything mechanical and is also a qualified diesel mechanic which means his vehicles are impeccably maintained. We’ve shared some great adventures and run many safaris, tours, and transfers all over Southern Africa. He’s particular about his work, operations, logistics, the drivers he employs and client safety, which are all reasons why we have a long-standing business relationship with Safari Brothers.

Safari Essence, locally based DMC in Maun Botswana, has grown and nurtured an unbreakable relationship with Safari Brothers, we have almost daily contact with one of the best and most ethical Ground Handlers in Southern Africa.

Lankester White Travel really loves working with Craig as he is deeply passionate about this continent and its people. He has a stellar understanding of the logistics involved in travelling around Southern Africa- combined with an in depth knowledge of each of his destinations this ensures fantastic trips as well as a wonderful human to engage with. It is very important going forward in this industry to partner with people such as Craig who are really committed to Africa and the protection of her people and her places.
