Perfect service and great tour

I have sent my parents (70+) on a group tour with Kruger Park Tours, and they loved the tour.
The service was excellent, everything was explained very clearly and the tour leader was very friendly and helpfull. The accommodations were great as well and very suitable for an elderly couple.
Many thanks Kruger Park Tours for your excellent service!

The best part of out South Africa Trip

We did the 4-day-treehouse-safari and it was wonderful! The trip is very well organized and everyone is very friendly and helpful. I would totally recommend it. The accommodations were clean and the game lodges were also well organized with good trained guides. Thanks for that great experience.

Wonderful experience!

It was our first time on a safari and it was a wonderful experience! We saw 3 of the big 5, but that was no big deal. We did see a rare black rhino as well.
The best part was the surprise bush braai, which was really amazing!

Excellent organization

The safari was very well organized. All was on time and as promised. This relates also to additional, pre-booked elements, associated with birthday celebrations. We did have great fun!

Excellent assistence for organization of my South Africa travel

I visited South Africa as a solo traveler from 21 th August to 16 th September 2016.
I have organized this trip by contacting several South African Tourist Agencies and I collected various proposals. Subsequently, I have chosen Kruger Park Tours Agency for assistance in the organization of my travel and for booking various accommodations, activities, and tours.

I found a great help from Miss Rochelle Gouws. Not only she provided me the assistance required, but she was always really available for my many questions, as well as very kind in sending me indications and answers, even for aspects of the travel not booked directly with her Agency.

Here I summarize briefly my itinerary.
- 2 Nights in Johannesburg. Accommodation in a Bed and Breakfast in Sandton. Visit of: Apartheid Museum, City Sightseeing bus tour, half day Soweto tour, Ann Van Dyk Cheetah Center.
- Transfer to Hoedspruit with shared bus and 1 night in a Lodge, including an afternoon game drive in Kapama and the day after a Panorama Route tour, with drop off in Timbavati Reserve.
- 2 nights in Timbavati and 1 night in Mohlabetsi Reserves.
- 6 days (5 nights) scheduled group tour, including Kruger National Park, Swaziland, Hlulhuwe/Imfolozi, St. Lucia, and Dolphin Coast with drop off at Durban airport.
- Flight from Durban to Cape Town.
- 3 nights in a room in an apartment located in Green Point area of Cape Town. City Sightseeing bus and full day tour in West Coast National Park.
- 6 days (5 nights) scheduled group tour of the Garden Route, including Cape Aghulas, Oudtshoorm, Wilderness, Knysna, Tsitsikamma National Park, Addo National Park, Mossel Bay.
- 5 nights in a room in an apartment located in Green Point area of Cape Town. City Sightseeing bus for various days, including visit to Table Mountain, Bo Kaap, Downtown, etc., full day tour in Cape Point, Robben Island, half Wineland tour, and many other attractions in Cape Town.

I really recommend Kruger Park Tours for the organization of a travel in South Africa.

Great Family Safari

I was a bit worried about booking with a group that did not have an office in the US and while there were some inconveniences, they were minor and were offset by the great service. The schedule of pick-ups, events, drop-offs were on time and as described in the plan. All of the drivers, tour guides, cooks, and service staff were wonderful. Rochelle at Kruger Tours worked hard to arrange a safari that worked for my family.

We went on the Tydon Camp Safari which is a true tented encampment. There are two Tydon camps, one right outside the gates of Sabi Sand and it has about 10 or so tents, a nice pool and lounge area, a large campfire area and a large eating area and library. The second camp, referred to as the "bush" camp, is inside Sabi Sands. It is smaller, more intimate version of the bigger camp but feels more rugged. There is not a pool in the bush camp and the fire area, lounge area, and food/library boma is much smaller, but the tents are identical (more on that in a second). There is access to a pool that is part of a small estate belonging to the owner of the land that the bush camp leases. The pool is right next door and is an easy walk.

The bush camp has four tents that support 8 guests, 1 guide and 3 cooks/service ladies who also reside at the camp. There were four of us in our family, my husband and our two adult kids, and we really clicked with the other four guest so that made it really special. That is a good thing because a lot of time is spent together. The tents are fabulous. Comfortable beds, carpeted, AC and heat, with a very nice bathroom. They are well appointed similar to a hotel room but still have the spirit of being in the bush. The routine is pretty much the same as with most safaris - get up way early and grab a cup of coffee, load up in the land rover, drive around looking for animals, come back and eat breakfast, relax, eat lunch, head out again in the land rover, come back, have drinks around the fire, eat dinner (in this case outside around the fire - way cool), have some more drinks around the fire and head off to bed. Dinner is a traditional African meal served on trays set up around the campfire accompanied by pudding for dessert. In addition to traditional vehicle safaris, Tydon offers a safari walk - not really for game viewing - more hands on type learning about animals, conservation, poop, tracks, that sort of thing. One of my favorite events and I really recommend it if that is your sort of thing.

Why the bush camp - well, its actually in the bush. It feels really exciting and at the same time it feels relatively safe. (There is an electrified wire around the camp and no wandering outside is allowed.) A few gazelle type grazers are often in the camp along with a few monkeys, but the wire kept out the elephants and buffalo and the cats didn't seem interested. There is no drive to get to the safari area - you wake up and you are in it. After lunch, you look out over the water hole and watch elephants come for their afternoon drink. One of the other guest hollers for you to grab your camera, that there is a Journey of Giraffe grazing right outside the tents area.

So now for the downside - Tydon has a relatively small area in Sabi that they are allowed to safari on and I became very familiar with the area. And while that made it feel special, it also felt limiting. We saw lots of animals but I wish they had more space. I believe that leopard is typically encountered at least once on a 5 day safari but we did not see any cats at Sabi. I am not a "check off the big 5" safari person but I think no cats would disappoint some folks. Even with the limited space, on the morning that we headed back to Joburg, I was wanting to be with the group that headed out on safari.

All in all, we absolutely loved South Africa, the adventure, the facilities and especially the staff and other guests. I recommend both Tydon and Kruger Park Tours. They are a great!

I long dreamed of going on the perfect safari.. Kruger Park Tours made it come true.

My title above is no exaggeration, I had a perfect safari. Every aspect of my visit was perfect. From the help I received organizing my ideas and choosing the right safari for me, all the way to my ride back to Johannesburg from Kruger Park.

I was lost with too many Safari options and speaking to several booking agents. I quickly became aware that Kruger Park Tours was going above and beyond what the others were doing for me. They spent weeks emailing, suggesting and quoting me despite my indecision. In the end they narrowed it down to the perfect Safari for me. For those curious, I did 4 nights and 5 days in hut. I went on 5 safari drives, 2 safari walks, and a scenic tour of other areas outside the park. I saw the big 5 many times over, and then some. The guides are terrific!! they know their wildlife and they know how to find it. They answered all of our questions with enthusiasm and a smile. It was truly and amazing experience to be out there. Then back in the camp the wonderful treatment just continued. We were so informed, so well fed. I mean really well fed! The food was terrific, my favorite was Kudu. The chef was great and food preparation and service was top notch and completely unexpected. I had thought I might be roughing it just a little, but it was not the case. A special thanks to Sello, Jeremiah and Kevin and the rest of the gang for making my Safari the best experience of my life. And, of course to Rochelle at Kruger Park Tours who made it all happen for me. Thank you everyone.

Fantastic Experience with Kruger Park Tours!

Would definitely recommend booking a Safari through KPT's. Our agent (Rochelle) could not have been more helpful - she catered to all our requirements, constantly changing our itinerary as per our requests. While all the time maintaining a professional & friendly demeanour. Our tour was exactly what we wanted given the time frame we had. We were also extremely lucky to see the "Big 5" on our first day! We throughly enjoyed our experience at Thornhill Lodge - accommodation, food, amenities, staff & hospitality shown were all fantastic. The bush walks and the Safari itself were great, enjoyed every minute of it! Special shout out to our great guides who were so informative & entertaining. Could not fault KPT's - highly recommend & will continue to do so to anyone considering going to SA!
