In November 2019 I had Joined the Legend Safari team on a photo safari at the Mashatu game reserve in Botswana. The entire process from the initial contacting up to an including the entire safari was an absolute breeze. The team was so professional in everything that they did right down to linking me up with their suppliers to score special rates for equipment hire on their strength.
I had not met any of them until the beginning of our safari but their constant contact with us on a regular basis helped to break the ice and it felt as if we had known eachother since forever.
The accommodation, meals, safaris, guiding, photo guiding and everything in between was just perfect. They are a team that is very knowledgeable and experienced in their field and are always on hand to help along the way to make your trip a comfortable and memorable experience while assisitng and guiding you throughout the safais to ensure that you are able to capture those breathtaking moments perfectly.
I would highly recommend anyone that loves the African bush or would like to explore it, to seriously consider joining Shaheen and his amazing team at Legend Safaris. YOU WILL NOT REGRET!!
Thank you Legend Safaris for the lifetime experience. I look forward to our next one soon.
We met as strangers and left as friends!!
Legend Safari completely swept me off the ground and just really blindsided me in all the best ways possible for a safari, as I had zero ideas and expectations of what a safari was going to be and what I wanted. Shaheen, the owner of the company, was already very friendly, patient and easy to talk with from the beginning over Whatsapp. A big factor that led me to go on a leap of faith and book with them was probably his demeanor. I got lucky and just signed up for the 7 day Sabi sand plus 3 days including the Panoramic View and a day in Kruger National Park.
WHY I CANT STOP TALKING ABOUT THIS SAFARI:
Shaheen and Zaheer (Photographic Guide) were always down to earth, approachable, soooo friendly that you just think of them as friends for the week, going on this amazing experience with you, on twice daily rides. We laughed all the time, but still easily dove into conversations on important matters; whether it was safari and wildlife related, or other worldly things we wanted to discuss. Like I said, we were like friends, and I consider them a big part of my South African experience by connecting with the locals and seeing life through their eyes. They were also knowledgeable and outspoken about whatever they knew of the present animal, even though in our “Safari Tank” of 8 guests we had a tracker up front, and a ranger who is also a driver that had a well of info on even more wildlife subject matters. I was with two groups and I can tell you that everyone became like a family, one unit, because Shaheen and Zaheer just exuded this happy, optimistic, and fun energy while maintaining professionalism and running the operations smoothly. What a great time. I’m still smiling so big writing this and thinking about my amazing trip from last month. It is amongst the top coolest thing I’ve ever done in my LIFE!
Prepare to dive into a diverse variety of food, three times a day, family style. I really looked forward to them because that’s when we all got together to share stories about ourselves, make fun of each other, gossiped about what pride of lions would encounter what coalition of lions or what leopard bush drama had happened or might happen, and just a good time around the table. It was always enough food that’s you don’t have to worry about starving. I really like the desserts too, pecan pie!!
CAST OF LION KING:
So I thought safaris would be just like.. “there’s a zebra, there’s Zazu the bird, and there’s Timon and pumbaa and they are this this this, and that and brown and have four legs and love to eat grubs. Like I said, I hadn’t done a great job at researching safaris. But I didn’t realize that our whole week of Sabi Sand would be like a TV SERIES! We knew the name of the prides, some of the lionesses and their history. So each encounter was special and built on the last incident. It was really personal and contributed a great deal of depth, meaning to the understanding of what we were seeing, not just random snapshot of animals. So some drives later became like another episode with the return of the main character and a few supporting cast members. So so so amazing.
My favorites were the LEOPARDS. I spent time with both groups from October 19-25, meeting 6 leopards through the week on the 12 total drives. (Tlalamba, Tingana, Mr Q(Uarantine$, Inkanyeni, Mondzo, and Thandi.) all with some kind of backstory, personality, and especially expressive characteristics. Since we had seen and been following Tlalamba since the second day of my safari, and towards the end! I felt like I KNEW her and could observe growth and changes and even fall in love with her, through real life. Wild animals seen on tv became much more REAL and tangible almost. Such a truly wild but personal experience.
Always felt safe, even when the big cats walked right past our car. I knew that we were in a safe place, as long as we followed instructions and remained calm and quiet during close encounters.
My room was always tidy, clean, comfortable and always provided me a good sleep to be ready for my early day at 05:30am!
As I’ve told my friends and family about my trip, I realize it sounds like I’m recapping detailed, narrated episodes of some wild life show. It’s because that’s how into we get, and because these animals have been observed and watched through SAFARI LIVE, they have the knowledge and resources to explain to us who they are, what roles they have, why they do what they do... and how their life is played out in front of you.
Thank you for not just helping me see the BIG 5, but in a way that is respectful of the animals, engaging, empowering and inspiring for us as people, and as individuals who want to keep seeing them free and thriving in the wild, where they belong.
I would come back and bring my mom and sister!! GO WITH SHAHEEN AND ZAHEER! They’re the best!!
