      Amazing, very knowledgeable full day drive
      We went on an amazing all day long game drive with Jakes. I was a bit apprehensive about spending 6 hours on a drive, but it completely flew by. Jakes was extremely knowledge about the animals, birds and plants and ensured we had some topographical variety to maximise seeing different things. Would highly recommend!

      Best safari experience
      The sunset game drive for us was the best experience, maybe I’m partial because we were lucky to have an unbelievable up close encounter with a herd of elephants, including a playful mischievous baby one that came right up to our vehicle which meant mama and the rest of the herd came up to check on us also. It was a little tense but the guide Jules was very knowledgeable and advised us to just remain calm, which in turn kept the herd calm and they just looked at us and kept on going. We then followed them to the water and got to see them play around and swim for about an hour right in front of us. That was beyond anything I could have expected.

      Best experience ever!
      Amazing experience, we had a drive scheduled for 6am they showed up about fifteen minutes early each day, eager to take us on our safari. Jakes, Jules and the whole teams are VERY knowledgeable about the animals, not just the large ones but even little things like the dung beetle, the spiders and the birds. We saw pretty much everything we hoped for except the leopard, but that was expected. Truly could not ask for a better experience or nicer people.

      5- Star Kruger National Park safari thanks to Jakes!
      We had an amazing Safari Tour. Jakes went out of his way to make it exciting and we learned a huge amount from his rich knowledge of the flora and fauna of Kruger National Park. We even spotted a rhino on the way out! Would highly recommend.

      Fantastic experience and amazing memories.
      Our safari with Jakes from All Or Nothing Adventures was an amazing experience. Jakes tailored the day to suit us brilliantly. Not only was Jakes a super friendly and funny guide, his experience and knowledge of the Bush gave us great facts and meant amazing sightings of lions, hippo, rhino, elephants, crocodile, buffalo, giraffe and much more. We had an amazing time with Jakes, and have memories that will last a life time.

      Rare sightings and super helpful
      Our first expedition into Kruger National Park, and we’d booked Jake to guide us with the view of seeing the animals but also preparing us for our self drives to come. Jake was super helpful and answered any questions we had, mostly regarding what we should do when we encounter any of the big five, so that we didn’t die or do anything stupid! Alongside this, we were so blessed to witness some rare species within the park including wild dogs and the ground hornbill. This trip was well worth it and I’d highly recommend to anyone heading into the Kruger

      Incredible adventure 🦁
      We had an incredible adventure at the reserve, where we were fortunate to witness some truly amazing wildlife. Jake's professionalism and friendly demeanour made the experience even more enjoyable. Our sunset drink was also a memorable moment, as we shared it with wild dogs and male lions nearby. 🌅🦁🐾 Would highly recommend

      The perfect start to our trip. Jake was not only really friendly and polite, but also incredibly knowledgable on everything we saw and asked him about. We were blessed with some beautiful sightings of the animals and he went above and beyond to give us the best experience amongst them. I would highly recommend this excursion!

      Sunset Game Drive with Jake
      Jake and Team are super supportive in the planning process. Once you`re doing the Game Drive you realize the wide knowledge of Jake. He´s explaining the Flora & Fauna as well all the animals. It is a loving Game Farm with different kind of Flora & Fauna which makes it even more interesting. Specially the drive through the "dry" river on the sand is highlight. We really enjoyed the sunset Game Drive with Jake and would do it again. Simon and Family

    We had a really enjoyable sunset game drive with Jakes. He was organized, courteous and knowledgeable. He did his best to give us an all round experience and fielded a barrage of questions from my 10 year old son with ease. Would definitely do it again when in the area.

    Leadwood experience with Jakes was fantastic! He learned us a lot about wildlife and we saw lions, hippo's, elephants, giraffes, zebra's, nyala's and more. Jakes and his nice daughter drove us around and we had a lot of fun. The private estate makes that you will not be with many others watching the lions or other animals. Most we had is that we were there with 2 cars.

    Thanks for taking the time to give us a 5 star rating ‼️ We certainly had some good sightings 🐘🦛🦒🦓 Biggest issue with any sighting in open reserves are traffic. Good control with two way radio’s, eliminates that problem completely 👍🏼 Hope our paths will cross again in future 🙏🏼

    We went on a few different drives with Jakes on the Rietspruit Game Reserve and had a great time during all of them. We had some amazing sightings of lions and rhinos! Even when we didn’t see a lot of game on our drive, Jakes would keep us occupied with his knowledge and stories about the bush. He is truly one of the nicest people we have ever met. We will definitely come back!

    Jakes drove us around in the Rietspruit area showing us many interesting animals (and plants, signs, tracks) a.o. the 3 lion brothers on our side of the fence and another male plus female in heat on the Moditlo side. Lovely interaction between the two.
    Not only were Jakes' comments very informative, he tells in a very pleasant way.
    Thank you for a lovely early morning drive and see you again!

    Jakes from All or nothing Adventures took us out on a morning game drive in the Hoedspruit area. We had a lovely drive, and although we saw only lion of the big five, Jakes made sure we enjoyed every other sighting, feeding us lots of new information. It was an enjoyable morning. We look forward to the next one.

    The gamedrive was a once in a lifetime experience! The game driver was very knowledgeable, extremely friendly and truly has a passion for what he does. We saw beautiful scenery, saw many of the big 5 and ended off with a view at one of the many beautiful dams. Best gamedrive I've been on!

    It was our first game drive with two small kids in the early morning. Jakes and his friend give us as a family a memorable time.

    The are really sweet and kind people with a lot of animal-knowledge, organized a break with coffee and cookies on a beautiful place, which was also a safe place for the children, between fences on an airstrip.

    Thanks again.

    To be able to see all the different types of animals in their own environment and to see how the pedidators hunt for other animals,the whole experience made this a Holiday of a lifetime to remember and cherish.The staff at Camp Bethel were very welcoming and friendly,the food was slightly disappointing and not to everyone's choices. Perhaps there were slightly too many power cuts/surges especially when we got back from a Safari and we were looking forward to a shower. The amount of travelling time was at times tiring.
