I booked my safari in the Kruger nationalpark with themba. They were really nice and helpful and our guide kylie tried her best to make everyone happy. She was so caring and is really good at spotting animals. Even though I was travelling by myself, I didn't feel lonely because I met a nice family from the states who went... More

My colleague was out from Lebanon and we used Themba Day Tours to do the half day Soweto tour for him so he could explore a little bit of Joburg on his off day. Our guide was friendly, enthusiastic and an absolute gem to be around. A spectacular tour, well recommended.

Overall, very well organized company. All the logistics were smooth, and the accommodation and transportation were very comfortable. Long game drives ensured we saw as many animals as possible, and the guide was a wealth of information concerning all the wildlife we saw.

We booked a four hour SOWETO Tour several weeks in advance. Pick up was from the Palazzo Hotel at MonteCasino. Our driver and guide, Richard arrived right on time. He was born in SOWETO and so has a personal interest and extensive knowledge of the area. This was a remarkable tour experience of both despair and hope. We were able... More

An excellently arranged and amazing safari experience. Our guide Mike was knowledgeable and personable and the hotel (Hippo Hollow) was fantastic. Strongly recommended.

We spent a day in Kruger National Park with Themba Day tours. Their service was excellent and our guide Kylie Haslam was superb. We had some wonderful sightings with Kylie and her knowledge of the animals, the Kruger Park, her infectious laugh and nothing is too much trouble attitude, made the trip a day to remember. Thanks Kylie and Themba... More

We signed on to two tours with Themba, Soweto and Lesedi Village, and were fortunate to have the same guide, Richard, both times. He was prompt, courteous, and very knowledgeable, and seemed genuinely interested in responding to our innumerable questions. Lesedi was a bit theatrical, as expected, but worthwhile. Soweto was somewhat rushed, leaving too little time for the Apartheid... More
