South Africa 3-Day Tour Reviews

5 - Excellent
Based on 387 customer reviews
Great trip all round
5 - Excellent
  • Carl Daft
“Very well organised from start to finish. All staff friendly and professional and got to see and do a lot during the trip. Saw a big pride of lions very close up within 10 minutes on our first drive and saw all of the big five over the six days - including lots of elephants, many more than expected! Also had two separate leopard sightings which was a treat. Accommodation was clean and comfortable and meals were all good too. All-in-all a very pleasant and enjoyable experience and would definitely recommend.”

  • Lucas
“A fantastic tour, with a great group. Cape Town was nice, but the best of South Africa is its nature, I think. Loved the Garden route - so many great spots. I liked the overall arrangement so much, so that I've already booked my next trip.”
