We visited SA for the first time starting in Cape Town and the garden route before flying to Kruger and staying around Blyde #River and then Pondoro to finish our trip. We certainly saved the best experience until last. The care and attention at Pondoro are excellent with special thanks to Shaun , Lize and Andrais for making it so special. Pondoro was recommended to us from someone who told we had to go as it was fabulous and we were not disappointed. Our game drives and the food and accommondation all top class. If you get a chance to go you wont regret it.
