Absolutely fantastic experience. As a South African taking my Australian friends around I couldn't believe I had waited so long to do this trip. The tour was very professional and our tour guide Sipho was excellent. He was very informative and friendly as a guide. I would highly recommend this tour and was very happy with the day.

Just returned from our 5 day safari at the end of October and could not fault Themba in the slightest. We were picked up from our airport hotel by our driver Bongani such a lovely man loved chatting to him and made the journey over to Kruger feel very quick and fun. We arrived at Sunset Lodge to a very... More

Everything was so well organised and the staff could not have been better. After 1 night at Waybury House we were driven by Bongani to Sunset Lodge for our safari. Bongani was so pleasant chatting on the long journey and giving lots of information. We were sad to say goodbye and gave him a big hug. At Sunset Lodge were... More

We selected the 4-day budget safari for 4 people. The service and staff were excellent, everyone we met was very friendly and knowledgeable. The safari itself was amazing...we came within 10 meters of all members of the big 5! I can't recommend this safari tour enough, and would do it again in a heartbeat. When booking, do keep in mind...

I had a customized private tour with this company and I couldn't have asked for a better day. My guide was not only well informed, he knew people everywhere and I felt I saw the real Johannesburg and Soweto rather than just tourist sites. I would recommend this company to any wanting to have a great time. ...

We took a half day tour of Soweto with Themba Tours and really enjoyed it. Our guide, Alex, grew up in Soweto so he had a lot of knowledge about the area and offered great insights on the community and life during apartheid. I highly recommend that anyone passing through Johannesburg take the time to visit Soweto. It really helps... More

We did the full-day Pretoria/Diamond Mine tour with Themba. Our guide, Richard, was excellent - very helpful and friendly, and had lots of interesting information about what were seeing and doing, and the context within the history of colonial and modern South Africa. Specifically, the Diamond Mine was awesome to walk through - to see the historical significance and cutting-edge... More

Themba did everything right, they sent different tour guides for each tour, each one was perfectly knowledgeable and experienced in their own tour. Two different vehicles each one perfectly right for the road conditions (one was a 2013 BMW!!). Both arrived right on time or slightly earlier. the tour guides were very helpful with our kids (3 & 5 old)... More

I was out for safari only for 3 days but rides and lodge and everything else was great! I enjoyed it a lot even as a lone traveler. I should say that correspondences before arrival was a bit messy with several guys from Themba tours but nothing went wrong during 3 days when I was there..
