FIVE STAR GUIDES

MEET YOUR GUIDES


At Five Star Guides, we only use fully qualified guides who are also experienced professionals in their own fields. Most of our guides have worked professionally in their relative specialisations in excess of twenty years and some even longer.

So when you visit South Africa with a Five Star Guide, you’re going to be guided by a connoisseur, steeped in the historical and contemporaneous understanding of their fields.
