We can highly recommend this company. Everything was perfectly organized and the communication was very smooth and helpful! We saw all the big five and the wild dogs in just 1,5 days. Our guide Kylie Haslam was epic. She just cracked us up constantly and she could answer all our questions very well! She was great in spotting animals. We... More

We decided to begin our adventure by doing the half day Soweto tour. Richard our guide was very informative, and was able to give us our first real impression of South Africa and its diversity. Although the tour was very interesting, it included highlights such as The Hector Peterson Memorial, two shanty town visits, the Mandala House, and some local... More

This was pretty disappointing!! The tour guide was great and had a lot of information to give us. But was was annoying and disappointing was the organization of the tour. Firstly, they had to rush us through certain sites because the guide only found out half way through the morning that the Hector Peterson museum was closing early that day.... More

Our itinerary said that we will return... More

We just returned from our very first safari and we couldn't be happier that we did it with Themba at Kruger Park! Our safari selection process began way back in July of 2014, a full 6 months before our safari! Yet, the Themba crew were patient, polite and answered all of my often silly questions (because I was such a... More

My 16 year old daughter and I had the pleasure of being on a 3 day safari 2 weeks ago, staying at Sunset Lodge (from Canada). Our hosts, Jonathan and Dirk, were fantastic and looked after all our needs. We felt completely at home, and enjoyed the narrative that they provided during our meals at the lodge. The wildlife tours... More

We took a private tour of Soweto on Thanksgiving and it was one of the better things we have done travelling. The tour covered all of the major sites in Soweto and we got to walk around an "informal" settlement in Soweto which was interesting and eye opening. Our guide engaged in great discussion with us. We asked him a... More
