I was expecting something very basic built to backpackers. Our surprise was that we were assigned a very pleasant apartment with airconditioning and a private large bathroom with a beautiful river view. The service was like we were home. A delicious dinner was prepared on our request. The property is located at a very nice neighborhood. We definitevely recommend it!

Stayed here before heading in to Kruger. Because we had big teenage kids, the manager kindly upgraded us to a larger room at no cost. The place has rooms hidden amongst plants on lots of different levels- our room had a large balcony and a small back courtyard next to a large aviary which we loved. Meal in the evening... More

My husband and I had the most wonderful experience here: it was our introduction to South Africa, and we felt totally cared for from the first e-mail contact with Dave through the end of our 1-week stay. Dave arranged everything: our own spacious wooden lodge with balcony overlooking the luscious greenery, with walkway to the breakfast/reception area, passing by the... More

We stayed only one night at the Old Vic. We had a self-catering unit which was price/quality value one of the worst we had during our 4-weeks holiday in South-Africa. The hostel has a gate to close of the property. Apparently the woman on duty has to go to the gate everytime someone rings the bell. The woman of the... More

Old Vic Traveller's Inn delivers great service for very affordable price. Rooms are clean, staff is very warm welcoming and helpful. For example, Dave drove us to our shuttle to JHB at 5.00AM because taxi driver did not show up. In addition, Kruger park tour offered by old vic is in relative terms affordable. I learned a lot from Dave... More

Group of 4 stayed for 2 nights in August 2013. Our room was all the way at the back of the property, facing a creek & mountains. It was very quiet & felt very private.

The Old Vic Traveller's Inn provided the ideal launch pad for Kruger National Park and Mpumalanga Province within South Africa. Dave took excellent care of my wife and I, providing an overnight trip into Kruger Park with less than 24 hours notice. This personal touch really made a difference for us. After being honest about the chances of seeing different... More
