We finished our time in South Africa with two Themba tours in the Johannesburg region and a 3-day safari to Kruger. Our base was the delightful Waybury house - a great place to stay! First off was a tour to Soweto with lunch followed by a visit to the Apartheid Museum. We feel this is a must for anyone visiting... More

On the morning of our pick up in Johannesburg we were met by Ronald, we were stopping at the sights on route to Kruger but the fog restricted the views but never mind. Ronald, I must say was brilliant we had enough breaks along route as it is a long drive, very informative of things we passed and apologised for... More

If you have read my previous reviews, you'd know I am a fussy traveler. My partner is S African (i.e., local yokel), and have heard good things about Themba, so I didn't exercise any due diligence and went along on a 5 day safari tour. We were met at the airport (with driver standing by!) and were promptly transferred to... More

My friend and I did the 5 day Big 5 Kruger Park safari staying at Sunset Lodge. We had an amazing time. As some of the reviews said the experience was great from the start. Replies to emails were prompt and they were very accommodating of what type of trip we were looking for. The first day we did a... More

My wife and I are honeymooning in South Africa, so a visit to Kruger Park was a must. We chose Themba's budget option partly based on the excellent reviews it has, and partly because they were so helpful and patient when I asked a million questions! I am so glad we opted for them. Our stays at Waybury House in... More

We had a wonderful time in the Kruger Park with Kylie from Themba Tours in September 2014. Fascinating wildlife and our passionate guide made our first visit to Kruger Park an unforgettable experience. Kylie really loves the animals and can answer just about every question (as long as you don't bother her with history). We will certainly come again, Kylie!... More

I wanted to visit Soweto with a company using 'local' guides. Themba was the right choice. We picked up at first at 8.30 from MonteCasino and it's a long time until a loo stop - beware! As others have said, Soweto is nothing like you imagine - its all smart four-bed houses and BMWs etc and has it's own class... More
