“Time of the year”
It was an unbelievable experience.
I had a wonderful time and the people I met was amazing!
“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!
My experience was incredible, I had an amazing time!
We had great service and prompt emails whenever we had questions regarding our safari.
“we have had a marvellous time in Krueger Park”
the Organisation, to start with, was very outstanding. Rochelle was fantastic, she found a way for everything, pick up at the Airport, Lodge in Johannesburg, pickup from there to the park…. and everything worked out very well. Nice People at the whole journey.
The service in Krueger Park was uncomplicated. Clean houses, tents and toilettes, (in the tent it becomes hot). The guides were very nice, eating fine and over all absolutely nothing to complain. We really loved staying there and will come again.
Animals? yes! Great Adventure!
Staff was very friendly and helpful. We saw all big 5 in Kruger.
“Excellent , professional & good value for money !!!”
The whole trip was excellent in ALL aspects of our stay. Management was very professional & always informative & accommodative.
Rochelle, from Kruger Park Tours, arranged a weekend getaway for me. Answered all my questions, smoothed out issues. The trip itself was great – pickup on time, leisurely safaris, comfortable chalets and good food. Wish I could’ve stayed longer!
“A really wonderful experience !”
Well , firstly the service was excellent ! There were literally no problems or hassles with such lovely staff who are so helpful.even the booking was so quick , easy and convenient , again i thank the wondeful staff. The experience was even more better than i expected (and my expectations were pretty high already since i heard how great it was by a friend who also went there and could’nt complain about a single thing. Lastly the tour itself was really a fantastic experience , it was absolutely beautiful and so tranquil you really become so relaxed by observing the beautiful scenery.
I would absolutely go again as soon as i can !
I would really reccomend this to anyone you won’t regret it !
Thank you kruger park tours !
I had the time of my life! Enjoyed every second. Surrounded by wildlife and getting the chance to see the Big Five was stunning, as well as all the other activities and attractions.
“What an experience!!!”
My husband and I went to South Africa for the Christmas holidays and ended up staying 4 days in the accommodation supplied by Kruger Park Tours. A fully furnished 4 bedroom unit on a Macadamia nut farm. We were given the choice of all meals included or self-catering, but opted for all inclusive. Gastronomy unbelievable!! I don’t know if Amarula cream is a gift from the gods or the ancestors or who ever but that stuff is out of this world.
Went on several game drives throughout the course of our stay and everyone was more exiting than the previous one. Seeing lions in the wild was really special but the sight of a Rhino in its natural habitat is something I will never forget. From the Lisbon and Berlin falls to God’s window, every kilometer traveled was an adventure.
Johan and Rochelle were such magnificent hosts. Always willing to stop for cold refreshments and never ending patience in stopping at all the road stalls to look for souvenirs. Lovely touch that the owner is the one driving and leading the sight seeing. Sometimes guides can come across as cold. We enjoyed our stay an recommend it to anyone looking for a proper getaway from the city buzz.
