The whole experience was excellent. We arranged a four day safari to Kruger staying at the excellent Sabie River Lodge. We were picked up from our hotel in Jo'Burg and taken on a wonderful drive visiting several waterfalls and a canyon. The drivers were informative and friendly. On arrival at our hotel we were greeted by the staff and shown... More

We booked a trip for apartheid museam and johannesburg downtown. We waited in the hotel lobby and they didnt show up. I phoned them. Ben answered and said they had tried to contact me the day before to see if I still wanted to go on the trip. I said people do not always check emails and phones every day... More

Our Son who works in Sandton Johannesburg booked a full day Tour of Soweto at a days notice with Themba believing them to be the No1 operator of such tours. From the off we were certainly NOT disappointed as we can only describe the whole day as being excellent. Our uniformed guide Richard Ngwenya picked us up promptly at 9:00am... More

My Dad and I recently traveled to South Africa. We booked a 4 day safari trip to Kruger with Themba tours and also did the Soweto tour with lunch one day. Our safari was wonderful, everything was well run from the start. We had excellent drivers to get us to/from Kruger, showing us sights along the way. At Kruger we... More

This company was easy to work with from the beginning. They were extremely responsive via email and allowed us to wire payments in advance according to our University policy. They tailored the trip to meet our needs and deadlines. Guides were great. One struggled a bit with the mic too close to his mouth so hard to understand, but overall... More

We booked a tour to Soweto and Johannesburg with Themba Tours. Richard, our guide was outstanding. Very informative and friendly. His comments were all extremely appropriate and valuable. Being a foreigner in South African land, it's sort of hard to understand this nation's history. Richard, situated us in time and space from the moment he picked us up at our... More

Thank you for these wonderful days! I booked a 4 day safari to the Kruger Park end of February 2014. All was perfectly well organized, pickup, transfer, accomodation and of course the game drives. I would never recommend to drive your own car. Even wonder why this allowed! Book a tour and enjoy! Special thank you to Kylie. She knows... More

Our safari in Kruger National Park was absolutely fantastic, made especially so by our guide, Kylie Haslam. She searched out best spots for us to see wildlife, and was very informative, and not only that, extremely thoughtful. She took each traveler's interests into account, and was willing to go out of her way to assist any of us on the... More

Never before have I had a morning tour postponed until 11:30 and be taken to an airport to wait in the parking garage while the guide picks up two additional tourists - there were four already. What a was of time. We stopped at the big stadium - a drive by picture would have been sufficient. The guide (T) didn't... More

We were collected in Johannesburg for our 5 day safari. The Guide (Alban I believe) went out of his way to arrange for one of us to see a doctor before leaving Johannesburg as he got injured the night before. We can't thank him enough for this. Our transfer to the Hotel went well even tho we had to skip... More
