Following our previous three excellent tours with Ulungele Tours in the Cape area we asked Hank if he could arrange something a bit different for us this time and he certainly didn't disappoint! He booked us on the Rovos Rail train from Cape Town to Pretoria, which was an amazing experience we wouldn't have liked to miss.He was waiting for us when we disembarked so he could bring us back to Franschoek over a period of 8 days, staying at Kroonstad, Colesberg, Beaufort West and Plettenberg Bay. All the accomodation was superb and Hank organised the travelling so we were never on the road too long in between stops. We already knew what good company Hank is and we thoroughly enjoyed the time we all spent together. All bookings were made by Hank and our holiday was totally stress-free - he even took care of two of our suitcases so we only had to take one with us on the train and he did all the loading & unloading of luggage at our accomodations which was completely appreciated - much easier than self-drive especially as we're not spring chickens! We thoroughly recommend Ulungele Tours whether it's for a short or long trip - we've done them all & never been less than completely satified with the service.

My husband and I have used Ulungele Tours on several occasions over the past few years and never ever been let down or disappointed. This time we asked 'Hank' to organise the whole holiday with Safari time and somewhere else for a couple of nights before we headed to Cape Town. He arranged 3 nights in the Safari Lodge Sanbona, two nights in a great B/B in Swellendam. (Cypress cottage), 3 further nights in Safari Lodge Gondwana, all the pick ups and travelling in-between with added trips to The Bontebok National Park, De Hoop National Park and a good day out in the wine route taking us through Barrydale which had there own wine distillery but also made there own Brandy. He also assisted us with information on flights and kept us updated in the plight of what was happening with the Covid 19 situation in CapeTown and our own UK information making sure our flights home were still scheduled. We cannot fault any part of the holiday, the transfers, the accommodation, Hank's knowledge and versatility with trips and as a guide is brilliant and we would not hesitate in recommending him and this company to anyone needing an excellent guide and tour operator for Cape Town. Hank Thank you yet again for your time and for making yet another memorable holiday for us so special. As usual, exceptional service by an exceptional company and an exceptional man who never fails to impress or surprise us. We look forward to meeting you again in, hopefully, the not too distant future.

Hank came to us on recommendation and exceeded all expectations. A friendly, personable, knowledgeable individual, who takes pride in his South African heritage and occupation. He has a wealth of information, which he delivers freely and eloquently. A thoroughly enjoyable experience, which was enhanced by his enthusiasm. We would totally recommend his services for anyone wanting to expand their knowledge of this amazing part of the world. Additionally, he is an excellent and safe driver. Thanks a bunch Hank and look forward to using your services in the future. 👏

We used Hanks services for a transport from Cape Town to Stellenbosch and it was everything like we expected it to be (after reading the good reviews here on Tripadvisor): He was very gentle and provided us with useful information for our further journey! Save driver! Would recommend & take use of his services again if needed.

Hi there! This was quite a quick enquiry and we manage to assist without any hassle. We spend about an hour in each other's company but we manage to discuss and talk about a lot of things. Some advice was shared from my side and some travelling tips as well. I thank you very much for reaching out to us and that I was able to assist and to make sure that you were transported safely between point of interest. I am looking forward to maybe welcome you back to our country and for maybe a longer stay next time! All the best!

We (three friends) did a wonderful day trip with Hank to Inverdoorn for a safari drive. I had done a ton of research and chose Ulungele because of the great reviews and Hank's willingness to customize the trip to our interests. I can say without hesitation Hank was the best tour operator I have experienced. He was 100% prompt, reliable and easy to coordinate with (we also did stress-free airport transfers with him). But what sets him truly apart is his vast knowledge of South Africa in all regards - history, politics, topography/geography, societal nuances, flora/fauna, etc. He was an absolute wealth of information - answering all our many questions and giving us a terrific education. He is also clearly sensitive to different groups' wants, waiting for us to set the tone - we plied him with questions but a group wanting less detail would get a quieter ride, I know! He has a warm, welcoming personality and appears to genuinely love his work. We will remember that day with Hank as being a real highlight of our trip, in large part due to him. Thanks, Hank - see you next time!

Good day Gillian A huge thank you for the review that you have written for us. It was an absolute pleasure to have been able to assist with your travel plans when you visited Cape Town. I am very passionate about my country and I am learning loads from other countries as well when people visit South Africa. We are never too old to learn and when you travel you gain more knowledge and experience than anything else. To share the history about our country and to share my views about the then and now, is an experience itself. Telling and sharing the truth about the past, the present and the future of where we think we are going is what makes us stand strong. Many thanks for allowing me to be part of your journey and I hope that I can welcome you back again some time soon, for another "Venture with Value"! :) Best Regards
