Best of the Best

Hylton and Margaux planned an INCREDIBLE honeymoon safari for us. We gave them a budget that we worried may be a little low for everything we wanted to do- a boat ride on the river, a horseback safari, and multiple days of game drives. We were blown away with the proposal they came back with! The locations and lodges they selected were incredible and we were taken care of so well. They really know the area and our expectations were beyond exceeded.

Not only was the trip they put together fantastic but so are they. They are the most amazing, powerhouse couple and are so knowledgeable about all the animals. It really enriched our experience to have them there educating us on the animals we saw. Not only did they teach us about the animals but also about the landscape, the soils, the plant life, and current conservation projects. We love them and couldn't imagine a better trip! 11/10 would recommend.

Very Highly Recommend, February 2023

Our group of 13 spent an amazing 2-days in Kruger National Park with Margaux and Hylton. They coordinated our meals and accommodations. I cannot imagine there's a better duo of professional safari guides. Extremely knowledgeable in Africa's amazing history and wildlife. They love what they do and it shows. We look forward to seeing them again soon in Botswana, or maybe Namibia.

Bespoke Family Safari, September 2022

Margaux and Hylton from Hylton Langley Safaris and Adventures produced the most incredible vacation of our lives. Our family (two adults, two elementary school children) reached out to them on the advice of friend who told us about her awesome experience with Margaux. We are so glad we connected with them. From our first communication in planning, Hylton and Margaux worked to understand our family and our interests. They patiently answered our questions and ultimately generated a completely customized itinerary that started with four days of private safari guided by Margaux and Hylton, incredible accommodation at a villa in Elephant Point just outside the Kruger, and meals designed to show the best of South Africa while still pleasing younger eaters. They handled every detail seamlessly such that we were able to relax completely. Each day, Margaux and Hylton shared their unending knowledge of the Kruger and its plants and animals. They considered our interests and adjusted each day’s game drive to best suit our family. As a result, we had terrific sightings of more animals than we could have imagined. They were terrific with our children. They answered our kids’ questions, took them on a nature walk near our villa, and showed them how to become children of the bush. In a few short days with Margaux and Hylton our kids learned so much about the Kruger ecosystem and had more fun than ever learning.

After the time at Elephant Point, Hylton and Margaux took us on a game drive to Motswari, a camp in a private game reserve. They ensured every detail was attended to, stayed our first night at Motswari, and went on two game drives with us there. Thanks to Hylton, Margaux, and the outstanding staff at Motswari, we were able to go on a bush walk while our kids relaxed at the lodge.

Put simply, our trip was unforgettable and that is all thanks to Margaux and Hylton. They were unerringly reliable and constantly helpful. They set the bar high for personal, bespoke family safaris and work tirelessly to exceed it. After getting home, we recommend them to anyone interested in visiting southern Africa. We would give them six stars if the website would allow. Thank you, Margaux and Hylton, for an amazing safari!

Margaux was our guide when we first brought our whole family to Africa. My four grand kids ranged in age from 6 1/2 - 11 years. Everyone had an amazing time...great animal viewing, learning to read tracks...and everything else you'd want from a family safari. My grand kids still talk about this trip and all treasure the casts of lion tracks that they made with Margaux.
My wife and I were again with Margaux when we made a trip to Singita Lebombo camp in Kruger. Once again, she delivered a fantastic experience for us.
She was our "Safari Guide of the Year" even before her strong finish in the official competition.

Beyond even my extremely high expectations

Hylton’s attention to the details of planning a great experience was wonderful. He is extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of the whole safari experience and felt completely safe the whole time. And best of all, I feel like I made a friend for life.

I can’t recommend him highly enough. If you want the best possible safri experience, Hylton is the person to make it happen.

Trip of a lifetime to South Africa and Kruger National Park

If you're looking for someone to plan your trip to Africa or to take you on a Safari, look no further.

My wife and I had one week of free time during our trip to South Africa, and at the recommendation of a friend, I contacted Hylton by email to get his advice. He asked a few questions to get a feel for our interests, and then he sent me his suggested itinerary. It looked great and included almost everything (lodging, most transportation, most meals, and a private driver/tour guide). I decided to trust him and signed up for everything.

I can honestly say that the entire trip exceeded our expectations on every front. All of the transportation, lodging, meals, the places we visited (including 3.5 days in Kruger National Park), and the things we did were fantastic.

I can't image how we could have had a better time or squeezed more into our visit to South Africa. Thank you Hylton for the trip of a lifetime! May God bless you, your families, and your business richly!

Hylton Langley is a passionate and highly knowledgeable guide who will dedicate himself completely to making your trip unforgettable. Me and my family had the most amazing experience with him in South Africa, and he brought out the absolute most of every moment together. Highly recommended!

Spending time with you in this wonderful place has been like gliding along inside a beautiful poem- every sound haunts, every moment flows and every image delights- and then, at the end, we want to start again at the beginning. Thank you for making our vacation so special.
