Nhlalala Travel name derived from a honey bird, a Shangaan language translated into English is Honeyguide bird. A valuable friend of the herdsmen as it known for guiding humans into bee colonies. As a result we find ourselves in position of playing a valuable role to our visitors, a role to lead them to South Africa hidden gem.


The Best experience I have ever had, and impossible without them.

Coming to South Africa for the first time with my partner, we were overwhelmed by the short stay and the amount of activities to potentially do. However, the team at Nhlalala travel made this process seamless, from organizing, coordinating and providing a sense of safety, comfort and excitement, that I can truly say resulted in the best trip I have ever had hands down.

Our guide Khongi, was one of a kind. An amazing soul that was extremely knowledgeable about all things South Africa. From the moment we landed at Johannesburg, our journey to Kruger National Park was filled with history and great music. Every step of the 6 hr trip up was filled with interesting cultural facts and we were lucky to have Khongi as our guide on the way there. Additionally, the check in process at Kruger, helping us navigate the safari pick up times, guides as well as just ensuring every day we were well looked after, Khongi went above and beyond. I would highly recommend this company based purely on how much care is put into every client’s trip.

Once we returned from Kruger, the Panoramic view on the way back was one of a kind. We stopped at the best locations and had an amazing time, at the many markets and view points. Khongi’s knowledge of the area meant we stopped at the best locations for sightseeing and meals.

In Johannesburg, the tour of the city which can be highly overwhelming for first time visitors, was made easy, our guide along with Khongi, took us on an incredible journey through the heart of Soweto, through the heart of the townships, explaining at every step the history behind what we are seeing but also the positive changes that are taking place. The real sense of South African pride was evident, and without Nhlalala, I can confidently say that we would not have been able to experience Johannesburg in such spectacular fashion.

Friendly and safe!

We had a great time in Kruger Park with Lucky (our guide from Nhlalala). The service was beyond what we expected! We had a limited time before I travelled for work in South Africa and Lucky helped us to get the most out of it. It started with timely pick up from our hotel in Johannesburg and a few hour drive to Perry's Bridge, where we were staying. The hotel was amazing, the staff was welcoming and the room is just so comfortable. A treat after a long journey!

We went on a sunset game drive to give us a feel of what to expect. We got to see a few animals then but the highlight would definitely be our game drive the next day. We were lucky to have the whole vehicle for ourselves and were looked after so well throughout the day. The hotel packed our breakfast (because we started at 5.30am!) and we get to enjoy it in the park. We got to see all the big 5 that day!

However, my husband became unwell after the game drive and we had to cancel our panoramic route drive on the way back to Johannesburg. The hotel staff and Lucky were so caring and understanding. They look after us until the time to get our last minute flight from the local airport. I definitely recommend the team. If I ever end up in South Africa again (high likely!), I hope we get a redo on the panoramic route.
