As many of the trips described on this website, can be combined, I do not quote a cost per item. The cost of a trip for a single person can be calculated as follows:
- R2.75 per kilometre, plus
- R125.00 per hour from the agreed departure time to the dropping off at your guesthouse or hotel.
- Meals and entrance fees are excluded.
For 2 or more people the cost above per person will be reduced on a sliding scale, as follows:
Number of people
% per person
Should you wish to use my services as a guide on a self drive trip, only the rate per hour will apply. Transport cost to where I am to meet you and meals and accommodation, where applicable, could also be charged.

Eco-Information on the Western Cape, South Africa.
Although large mammals, like rhinoceros, lion, elephant, buffalo and hippopotamus occurred in the Western Cape in the 17th and 18th century, these unfortunately had to make way for civilisation. A number of reserves in the Western Cape have reintroduced these animals. However, when in Fynbos one should 'think small'.
The small-leaved, low-growing vegetation with very few trees is not very nutritious for large grazing animals, and one would rather find small browsers. The animal life has been adapted to the harsh conditions of long, dry and hot summers, cold and wet winters, unpalatable plants and frequent fires.
Bontebok is the rarest antelope species in South Africa, and endemic to the Western Cape. Other animals include Grysbok, Steenbok, Duiker, Klipspringer, Grey Rhebuck, Cape Mountain Zebra, Leopard, Chacma Baboon, Cape Clawless Otter, Rock Hyrax, Porcupine, and a number of mongoose species.
