Judging from many of the other reviews, I don't think we stayed at the same place. We never met Edwina and saw Wayne for about 3 minutes on arrival and 5 on departure (mostly settling the bill). The game drives were the only saving grace of this tour, but it took an hour to get to the park gate and... More

With our British guests, we met our tour guide in Sandton. The booking system & communication with the Themba Office was great. We left Sandton with our guide Richard in a clean and well maintained vehicle. Richard shared his informative information from leaving to go to Soweto. All interesting even to us who live here. We have gone on a... More

A group of 6 of us had the pleasure of taking a Soweto day tour with Themba. The guide was very knowledgeable about Soweto and the history revolving around Apartheid. We were treated well in an clean air conditioned van and all were happy with the tour. The guide that actually took us through his home in Soweto was very... More

Our safari was quite disorganized from start to finish, wrong timings being given, lack of info to our driver meant he had no trailer for bags for half our transfer which in turn meant our bags were loose all over the van but worst of all was the mess up on our second day of safari. Although our booking said... More

This was a package with a pre-safari stay at Waybury House in Johannesburg followed by 3 days at Sunset Game Lodge, including a Kruger Park day tour. They pack a lot into this package and it can be tiring but I certainly believe I got great value.
