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.

Just returned from our amazing tour of South Africa with a visit to Zimbawee organized by Goway and Thompsons Africa. We were a group of 6 with 4 adults and 2 children, aged 11 and 15. Donnie was our guide in Cape Town and took us on our Peninsula and Winery Tours. He was absolutely wonderful. He pointed out just... More

We did two tours with Thompson's booked through a third party whilst we were in Durban. 1) Half Day City Tour: This was a great overview and orientation of Durban. 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

I'd just say: don't book your trip with them. They don't even know who u are or what you're doing. They could never set up a pickup time, their tour guides were in a hurry to get done with the day's outing and go home. If u go to Cape Town, just rent a car and do it on your... More

Knowledgable, professional guides. Worth very penny. We booked several tours in Cape Town and for the Garden Route. We need to mention Angie and Alex whose encyclopedic knowledge and good humour made this a most memorable travel adventure.
