Superb time at Sabi Sabi

We had an absolutely wonderful time at Sabi Sabi!

The service was excellent, the food was superb, the rooms were marvellous and the surroundings beautiful. We had some fantastic game drives and saw loads of animals, followed leopards, spotted lions, hung out with elephants and greeted zebras.

The only small comments I would give is that the ranger didn’t need to eat with us every evening. Once might have been OK, but we would have been very happy to be on our own but felt a bit obliged to dine with him…which I am sure can’t be that much fun for him every evening. It probably didn’t help that our ranger, was very good at the game drives but his social skills were perhaps not as excellent. Another small thing: We were surprised to be asked for tips – and that the amount suggested were as high as they were (R 150 for the ranger from each person each day…that is more than most people earn and that is just his tip!) Of course it was voluntary but it was surprising nevertheless. These are just very minor things and only worth mentioning because the rest of the experience was so superb!!!

Best and thanks a lot,

Kapama Adventure in the greater Kruger Park

Kapama was an extraordinary adventure that left us with memories we will carry for the rest of our lives. The guides and trackers were amazing, the lodging was excellent and the food was wonderful. I highly recommend the trip. And, all transfers arranged through SA Tours went seamlessly.

I want to thank you for the work you did to set this trip up. many thanks!!!

From Greater Kruger Park to the Garden Route

My wife and I had a marvelous time.

In the pre-trip calls as to what we wanted to see was absolutely "Spot On". This was a trip that we will never forget.

Yes, there was one disappointment as to the Rovos Rail. Although, the train was beautiful, the service was not as stated - 5 star. There were several little details which added up to the disappointment in that area. At no fault to the train, there were several snotty, or snobby people on board which also made for a "Not So Good Experience."

African Game Lodge - Not so good. Rooms were dirty and way out of the way for a car which I had.

Exeter Lodge was the best experience we ever had. We will defiantly go back there in the future. The people there were very professional and friendly. "Great Place"

Rosenhof Guest House; WOW simply super. Friendly, Great Food, Super Atmosphere. Super Rooms, Very Helpful. Organized Hot Air Balloons, Quad Bikes in the Mountain..........just to much to list.

Storms River Rest Camp; WOW.....No words can describe what you can see. Brilliant!!

Garden Route; Simply Superb all the way. We will be back.

Your company really listened as to what we wanted to do, and you handled it. It was a pleasure booking with you. We will book again for another trip to your beautiful Country.
