Two week Wildlife Photography Tour, Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park (South Africa), Sossusvlei and Etosha National Park (Namibia).

"Traveling for 2 weeks with Matt to Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, and the sand dunes of Sossusuvlei, and on to Etosha National Park - Namibia was a experience of a life time! Matt was attentive, personable, fun, and most important we so benefited from the fact that he has 180 degree vision for spotting birds and animals. He has a unique conservation and wild life background that he readily shares when asked. From history, to culture, to detailed knowledge of animal behavior you just can't ask for more from a guide! Plus he is a dang good cook and driver. Great to feel so safe and watched over when one is out of their element."

Two week Wildlife Photography Tour, Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park (South Africa), Sossusvlei and Etosha National Park (Namibia).

"I recently spent 3 weeks traveling with Matt Prophet of "Fangs and Feathers". This personalized, custom tour of South Africa and Namibia was absolutely fabulous. There were 2-3 of us on the two different safaris that we went on. There was 2 weeks in Namibia and then later 10 days in Kruger. Matt was extremely attentive to all our needs. He was always one step ahead in making sure that we were happy and satisfied with the trip. In addition to his impeccable logistical oversight, he knowledge of wildlife from birds to snakes to apex predators as well as his uncanny ability to see how wildlife interactions were going to play and and positioning us to be in the right place at the right time was phenomenal. He was also a great guy: always positive, friendly and attentive. If I ever make it back to Africa. He is THE GUY."

Western Cape, South Africa, Fynbos Endemics Birding Tour.

"We spent 6 days with Matt in the Western Cape. From Cape Town to Swellendam, Ceres and the Tankwa Karoo, Langebaan and the West Coast, and Cape Peninsula.  We had an amazing time exploring those regions for almost 200 species.  Matt took us places that we would have never known about and has a keen eye and ear for finding the species.  He was a pleasure to spend time with and made our trip so much more worthwhile!"

Greater Cape Town Two Day Birding Tour.

"When Matt Prophet asked me what my goals where for this visit, i said "to have a good time". He nailed it. Not only is he knowledgeable about all the bird species in Cape Town, but he knows where to find them.

I enjoyed our conversations and we had many interesting discussions regarding the similarities and diffrences between Africa and North America. My favorite moment during my two days with Matt was when he got really excited when he showed me an elusive African Rail and was equally thrilled when i saw it too. I will be returning to South Africa and and will definately be birding with Matt again."

Rhea Copening - Austin, Texas, USA.


Cape Town Birding Day Tour.

"Thanks to Matt for a great day in difficult conditions, high winds were a concern but Matt worked very hard to make sure I saw my main target species, the endemic Cape Rockjumper, of which we obtained good views of three birds. We also visited other sites where Matt showed his knowledge in a relaxed manner with good humour"

David Woodhouse - Golcar, Kirkless, United Kingdom.


Cape Town Birding Day Tour.

"Such an amazing guide. Warm, friendly, extremely knowledgeable, flexible and easy-going. I had no interest in birds before today and it was so exciting and fun."

Megan Yang - Kingston, Ontario, Canada.

Cape Town Birding Day Tour.

"If you’re a birder and have even just one day free in South Africa, you couldn’t spend your time more productively or enjoyably than with Matt Prophet as your guide.  One day is all we had in Cape Town, and Matt planned a route that would give us the best chance of seeing our target species while also ensuring some spectacular views.  Our route included several stops along the coast in Table Mountain National Park, Cape Point, and Strandfontein Birding Area, yielding an abundance of dazzling sunbirds, sugarbirds, chats, raptors, shore birds, ducks, and swifts.  Based on our experience, we would definitely recommend Fangs and Feathers to anyone planning a trip to southern Africa.

Peggy Sagan - Massachussets, USA.


Etosha Wildlife Adventure.

"Thank you for guiding my son and myself through Etosha National Park in Namibia. We were thrilled with the mammals and birdlife you showed us. Your knowledge of the general environment made for an unforgettable experience that we shall never forget. The Black Rhino sightings were amazing! Thank you again for an outstanding trip."

Michael and Laird Maister - San Diego, California, USA.


 Kgalagadi Wildlife Adventure.

"I was fortunate to have Matt Prophet organise and guide during my two week trip to South Africa. We travelled through the Kgalagai Transfrontier Park on an 7 day tour and also visited the West Coast National and Table Mountain National Park in Cape Town. Matt will optimise your chances of seeing and photographing wildlife due to his wealth of knowledge about the local wildlife and areas in which they live. He is great company on those long days on the road or in the bush. I highly recommend Fangs and Feathers Wildlife Adventures if you are looking for a guided safari experience to Southern Africa."

Grant Griffin, Exmouth, Western Australia.
