We loved Sunset Lodge, we felt very comfortable there with the lovely family who run the lodge. Our boys are already asking to go back to specifically stay at Sunset lodge and to see... More

We had a wonderful experience! They were extremely helpful and flexible while arranging our trip. Everything was well organized when we got there and we didn't have to worry about a thing. Guides were super cool! I would definitely recommend it. Very good value for money.

Great communications throughout planning. Thank you Themba for making our safari to The Kruger so memorable. The accommodation was spot on (review left). The planning was meticulous and our tour guide John was so so knowledgeable in all he told us about the animals in the park. We saw the Big Five thankyou John. Such good value for money considering... More

Themba impressed me a lot. From the pickup at the airport (our flight had a 4 hour delay, but our driver was there waiting for us), to the first night at the Waybury guest house, to the Themba Sunset lodge (perfect - I also wrote a review for them), to the safari guide and organization of the tours. I do... More

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
