We booked a week long safari with the company in March 2014. Verity promptly picked us up at our Johannesburg hotel then we drove to Pretoria , the capital, to get a commercial shuttle to Nelspruit. A very interesting ride seeing the beautiful country. The shuttle was late arriving and someone had gotten sick on the floor rendering the van very rancid smelling even after the owners washed and cleaned .....Upon arriving in Nelspruit our safari guide deftly picked us up and our luggage to the safari touring vehicle. The 2 hrs drive was really AWFULL and uncomfortable, because the safari vehicle is open and not designed for high speed. My long hair flying everywhere in knots. Mark , our driver and guide didn't have a clue about this, because he was protected by the windscreen. Cannot remember if we had seat belts. We chose this way to get to Kruger because we wanted to see more of the beautiful country we visit every year. Flying is definitely much better and easier, but again if it's your first trip there, suck it up, lots to see and appreciate.
The company is very professional. Great respect for the animals and the environment. We gained knowledge and a great education only a guide can provide. Very patient and caring, wanting us to have great photos/films. Indeed we do recommend Nhongo . They may have acquired a sedan for that trip from Nelspruit to Kruger !!!
