“ I want to share some impressions or rather some lessons learned at the safari with Jack.
1. “Slow down, white man!” – This one is maybe the most important lesson I learned. We tend to live our lives so fast, that we don’t take the time for the beauty happening around us the whole time.
2. “Lay the fire the bushman way” – For this you have to know, that the bushmen lay the firewood with one end into the fire not with the middle. Western people tend to put the middle in. We tend to “burn” our lives from the middle. We want to be in the middle of everything and lost the joy in the way to most things in our lives.
3. “Ahh, baboon trouble again” *laughing* – There are always circumstances and/or people in our lives, that do harm and we don’t understand why they are doing this. We get angry, and even more angry with time. We should rather let go and just repair the harm, have a good laugh about it and go on with life.
Thank you Jack for the quotes and most of all for the most beautiful and life-changing holiday. You have set the standards really high for my next holiday. ”


“Dear Jack,

We thank you so much for this fabulous trip we had with you and Marina .
We think we were lucky during all the safari : 2 teeth less for Jérôme means 3 leopards !

And especially, we had with you a perfect guide with so much knowledge that you always enjoyed to share with us, always with the smile.
We sincerely appreciate to have you as a guide.”


“Had the most amazing safari trip with planet safari in the beginning of June 2017. We went on a 9-day safari trip through Moremi, Khwai, Savute, Chobe and Vic Falls.

It was an incredible safari, and we were so lucky with our sightings! In Moremi we got to see a cheetah and lions, and we had elephants in our campsite at third bridge.

On the way to Khwai we saw a leopard and some wild dogs. In Khwai we saw elephants swimming in the river, and another leopard in the evening.

On the way to Savute we saw more wild dogs, and in Savute we got to see lions roaring and mating in the morning. In Chobe we drove along the river and saw all kinds of animals, and on the last day in Chobe we saw a brown hyaena and a leopard with a cub. This has really been the safari trip of a lifetime! Jack is a fantastic field guide who really knows his way around the bush.

I strongly recommend a safari tour with Planet Safari to anyone who wants to discover the African wildlife up close, in some of the most beautiful places in the world.

Thank you Jack!”


“I went on an 8-day camping safari with Jack in September 2016 and had a wonderful experience. He was very knowledgeable about all of the birds and animals we saw and the parks in Botswana. He took us on a lot of the back roads in the parks, where we would not have known to go if we were on our own. We saw pretty much every animal there was to see – elephants, zebras, buffalo, wildebeest, different kinds of impalas, giraffes, ostriches, lions, hippos, monkeys, baboons, and lots more that I can’t think of right now! We also saw 50+ different types of birds and our group was very impressed that he was able to identify every bird that crossed our path and share very detailed information with us.

I would definitely recommend going on a camping safari rather than staying in the lodges. The camping gives you an opportunity to truly be in the wild with the animals. You are able to get out into the parks earlier and stay later, since you don’t have to worry about commuting to the lodges. This gave us opportunities to see lions hunting early in the morning and in the evening while the other vehicles were not in the parks. Camping was also hardly roughing it – the tents come with showers and chef the cooks gourmet meals for you every day!

We had a lovely experience on the safari and highly recommend Jack!”
