First Class

We are a family of four taking our 2nd trip to Africa. Knowing a little more of what we expected than our 1st trip Thwane Safaris could not have been a better fit for us. We felt like part of the family from the first day we arrived. Their sons Rhuan and Marno went out of their way to entertain and guide our 14 yr. old son, Dino and 17 yr. old daughter Olivia. Our children will never forget the memories they made with these wonderful boys. With the instruction of Marno, our son shot a trophy Wart Hog with a cross bow for the first time. Our son also had a most extraordinary opportunity to dart a Rhino from a Helicopter in order to cut off her horn and save her from poachers. My son will never forget his part in saving this beautiful animals life. We all had the opportunity to hunt with Marius and Leoni as well as the boys.

We shared stories and had many great laughs over delicious meals at their unbelievably beautiful dining room table. The first class accommodations are beyond words. The Barnard family has become very special and personal friends to us through this trip and we can’t wait to see them again.

A BIG thank you to Marius, Leoni, Rhuan, Marno and the amazing staff at Thwane Safaris for making this trip the most enjoyable trip of a life time and most of all for spoiling our children!
