"Martin is a highly guest-oriented expert on the flora,fauna, geology, climate and history of Africa. He is an extraordinary game-tracker with a remarkable knowledge of animal behavior. He can often predict "what will happen next".  He is exceptionally attentive to the health, safety, satisfaction and welfare of his guests.  My wife and I have been on a total of 7 safaris, two with Martin.  No other trip, with very well known, expensive and highly rated international firms, could begin to equal the satisfaction and pleasure of having Martin as guide and leader."
