There was a wide choice of safari and cultural activities at Hazyview. We chose Thompsons and were delighted to be advised by Michelle Immelman who corresponded before we travelled, kept in touch after that and met us on arrival. The tours she suggested were brilliant. When one of our number was ill she was keen to ensure that things were... More

We started our 14 days Johannesburg to Cape Town tour on Aug. 17, 2014. We were picked up by Thompson's Tours at the airport in Johannesburg and transferred to the hotel promptly. Our tour guide Paul met us at the hotel in the evening for a meeting. He gave us a hotel card which enable us to have a 50%... More

Our group toured South Africa with Thompson's for 14 days in July and I am happy to say that not one part of our itinerary went wrong. Our guide Craig was very efficient . He took care of any little problems we encountered, gave us sound advice, and our bags were always in our room when we arrived at our... More

This photo safari exceeded my expectations. As a photographer, I was amazed at the variety of wildlife we saw on the first day and each of the four days thereafter. The head guide, a veteran safari leader and professional photographer, offered many good tips to make our photos sparkle. The three courteous driver/guides were well-trained and had an uncanny ability... More

Have had an amazing day with Thompson's during our Peninsula Tour. As we did not use this travel company before we didn't know what to expect but were pleasantly surprised when mini bus turned up, bang on time and with only 4 other people on board (regards to Karen & Brian). Danny, our guide for the day, was extremly knowledgable,... More

This tour company is a gem. While traveling with family in Africa, these travel experts took us all over. The guides, different each day, were exceptional. Each day the driver/tour expert would take care of all the little extras. The guides were friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. If you are heading to Africa and want to enjoy your trip, I...

We used Thompson for internal transfers (numerous) and some day guiding during our 2-week stay in SA/Zimbabwe/Botswana. We were very pleased with their punctuality, friendliness and helpful hints. Our day long Cape Tour was enjoyable with our guide Mark. We felt that we were in good hands.

Our guide, Craig was friendly and knowledgeable and it didn't feel awkward even though there was just the two of us on the tour. Craig happily waited when we went... More
