South Africa tour reviews

Scoring an average traveller rating of 4.75 out of 5 based on 53 recent reviews — See All South Africa Reviews

We loved the tour, unfortunately were unaware of the amount of bus travel but that is to be expected, and have to say sleeping on mats was a little uncomfortable for our old bodies, but we managed and did upgrade once but still had the opportunity to upgrade at other camps. The camps were all good, although we did run out of hot water on occasion. Any discomforts could be expected as we were camping. I did realise on our return that we only had one opportunity to shop for souvenirs apart from the airport shops, a little more time would have been fabulous. The food was great and plentiful, the staff were fabulous and more than helpful with putting and taking off the clips to the tent, very hard to do.

The tour was great, we really had no idea or knowledge of what to expect but was amazing to see these magnificent wild animals roam where they chose, it was fabulous and would have no hesitation in recommending this tour or your company again. ”

Fantastic tour that gives a real insight into the wildlife of Namibia. The game drives in Etosha were fabulous and we had great sights and sounds of hyenas feeding and elephants protecting a baby in their group. Our guide, John, worked incredibly hard liaising with the head office in order to allow 4 members of our group to stay in Etosha Park itself for a second night and take part in the night safari.

The tents and meals were of a good standard and the roll mats a lot more comfier than last time I did over landing 15 years ago. Remarkably, I recognised our driver on this trip as he was my tour leader on that overland trip such a long time ago. All the crew were great and good humoured and worked exceptionally hard.

All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable trip that I've already been recommending to my friends.”

As this was a budget tour the accommodation was good.

The tour took us to places that I didn't even envisage existing the group was great and we did get a true feel for the country. ”
