          Large cruise ship group, what an interesting and educational tour.
          Wonderful tour guides handled our large group of 22 cruise passengers wonderfully. We toured many areas of the city in 101 degree temps and made many memories.

          Incredible 2 day Kruger tour
          We had an absolutely amazing trip to Kruger park everything was 5* star. Our trip was arranged at incredibly short notice and communication was very quick. Our drive to Kruger was very comfortable and we appreciated the snacks and water provided in the car. Once we got to Kruger our guide Nicko was incredible. He took plenty of time to describe all the animals, birds and plants and over the course of two days we saw all big five and plenty more. Our accommodation at Pestana Kruger lodge was clean and comfortable and the highlight was by far the views from our bedroom and the dining area. We spent the evening watching more wildlife as the sun went down. Would highly recommend booking this tour.

          Great!
          We did a 3-day Kruger safari and a day tour in the Maputo special reserve with Maputo Tours. I cannot recommend them more. Everything was great! The reservation process and payment options were excellent. All communication was easy and on time, both by email and WhatsApp. Our guides were excellent. Our guide at Kruger, Thabi, was amazing. We like all animals, so we were not only interested in seeing the big 5. We wanted to see everything, so she made sure we did! We stopped to photograph every bird, lizard, bug… lol, with all the “can you move the car 10cm backwards” to get a better shot. We saw all the big ones, I think she called them the amazing 8, because on top of the “big 5,” we also saw wild dogs and whatnot. We got to see a leopard sleeping like 2m from our car! We ended up with over 100 species of animals photographed there. I guess we were lucky that we were basically on a private tour as it was just the 2 of us and our guide for the 3 days! The hotel where we slept was good, and the food there was very good. Marloth Park was a very nice place to walk around at the end of the day with tons of animals. The rest camps where we stopped for lunch were also very good with great food options. Our guide had snacks and water in the car. The trip from Maputo and back was very comfortable, and the border crossing was really easy. I was worried about it as Mozambique just added my country to the list of countries that do not need to apply for a visa, so I was worried that the system was not working properly. But no problems at all. They just checked the stamp we got at the airport, the receipt of the “visa exemption fee,” and all was good (no need for the old system of visas with multiple entries and stuff. The visa-free countries can leave and re-enter for 30 days). Remember to keep that receipt though. They asked for that in border crossings and then when we left the country. Our driver on the way back from the Kruger to Maputo said he liked to do tours in the Maputo Reserve because of the landscapes there, and so we decided to book a tour there. I liked the honesty of this agency; when I said that I would like to book that tour, they said that after Kruger, I might get disappointed as it does not have the same “big animals.” But it was amazing! And we really liked our guide – the same one that drove us from the Kruger and had recommended this park. He really loved that area, and it showed. We might not have seen lions, but we saw amazing landscapes, a huge variety of antelope species (probably more than at Kruger), whales passing by the beach, lots and lots of bird species. We really liked it. I just wished we could have stayed there more days, but it was forecasted to rain, so we only did the 1-day.

          Incredible intro to eSwatini!
          Our driver/guide was incredible and made the day trip exceptional. It was incredible what we were able to see and do in 12-13 hours! Everything went smoothly, the car was very comfortable, and the logistics were seamless. The stops along the way were amazing, so many animals, cool historic and cultural sites, a great spot for lunch and souvenirs. Wonderful day trip!

          Wonderful combined Tour Eswatini / Kruger Park
          Tours Maputo has an excellent program of 4 days (3 nights) that combines the cultural essence of Eswatini with the wonders of Kruger Park. In Eswatini we combined a traditional dance show, a game drive in Hlane national park (where we saw hippos, rhinos and elephants) and a night in a traditional but very comfortable lodge. In Kruger, of course, things were even better with lions, leopards, giraffes, zebras... Ofiço is a very safe driver and a remarkable guide. This tour is a must-do.

          Cultural Trip to Eswatini
          We booked this tour very last minute, but the team was able to organize our request very quickly and efficiently - providing all the necessary information for visas. The driving is long, but there are a fair few stops - the game reserve, cultural village, waterfall, lunch, and Swazi Candles. Our guide, Ofiço, was excellent - very informative and friendly! We felt we learned a lot about both Eswatini and Mozambique during the tour. If you have time during your stay in Maputo, would highly recommend! Thanks, Pip and Lauren.

          Very nice tour to beautiful Eswatin
          We had a great one day cultural tour to Eswatini, which is a very beautiful country so even if we spent many inevitable hours in the car, we could really enjoy the view. During a short stay in Hlane national park we saw wildebeest, hippos and impalas. Then a nice traditional dance show combined with a waterfall and then lunch in an amazing setting. This tour is a must and our great driver, Ofiço, made sure that our time on the road was as safe as possible. We strongly recommend this tour!

          Fun trip to Hlane and Kruger National Parks
          Our group of 5 did a 2-day, 1-night safari from Maputo to Kruger National Park. We wanted to see Eswatini as well so Tours Maputo was able to work with us so that on the first day we drove to Hlane National Park and did a game drive before driving to Kruger to spend the night. The next day we did a full day in Kruger and drove back to Maputo arriving around dinner time. We had a friendly, safe driver who was on time and made sure we made it through border crossings ok. Our safari guides in Hlane were good and our guide in Kruger was excellent. Nice accommodation as well. The tour was an excellent value and a wonderful experience. Highly recommend.

          Very long drive but we were comfortable
          Ofiço was our kind driver from Maputo to Timbavati Nature Preserve in South Africa. He promptly picked us up in a newish van. We were very comfortable for the long drive. He gave us bottles of water too. We had a few issues along the way, including 1.5 hour wait at the Mozambique and South Africa immigrations. We were about 1 hour away from our lodge when we discovered a strike and a large truck completely blocking the road. Ofiço had to back track to find another road. This caused a delay of at least another 1.5 hours. He was patient and didn’t complain that the drive was much longer than expected. It took 9 hours instead of the expected 6.5 hours. We felt so bad for him as he had to drive all the way back to Maputo. I would highly recommend Tours Maputo and Ofiço. We felt very safe with him, especially at the border crossings.

          My husband and I took the two-day, one-night tour to Kruger from Maputo. I'd definitely recommend this tour for those looking to get to Kruger from Maputo. Everything ran on time. Communication was clear. Maputo Tours provided snacks and water for the road, and vouchers for lunch at a different restaurant in Kruger each day. The lodge had lovely views over Crocodile River, a pool, bar, and our meal there included steak, sides, a salad and dessert. They ran the tour even when it was only for two of us. I was totally satisfied!

          Great Maputo to Mbabane transfer drive
          Mine is a bit different in that instead of the main Eswatini tour what I needed was transfer from Maputo to Mbabane. Tours Maputo has Ofiço drive me and just wanted to emphasize how good the drive was - very professional, very safe and with his English so good we were able to have conversation the entire way which really helped the time go by - as did the scenery of course, especially in Eswatini where the countryside is more hilly. If you do need such a transfer the pricing was very good and as I mentioned by driver was top notch.

        It's a perfect 1-day trip while staying in Maputo. The trip was well organised and very convenient. It's quite amazing what one can experience in just one day. Driving from Maputo to Kruger Park offers itself opportunity to see the landscape and rural areas.
        But the time in national park is just priceless. We were incredibly lucky and saw many animals close by. I can say it was one of the best day of my life. The silence and peace there were just hypnotic.
        I warmly recommend to use this opportunity while in Maputo! My only regret is I didn't book the trip to Eswatini. The agency offers these brilliant day trips, super comfortable and one experiences a lot. Great concept, especially when staying in Maputo just few days!

        I still camt believe Kruger us so close to Maputo. I never thought I could have this amazing chance.

        My only regret was not doing the two day tour. In one day we saw so much but I wanted more.

        Thankyou Tunelga for the seemless organisation and really fantastic service.

        Loved how the whole trip was organized with us being a family of 3 small kids in mind! We had the journey of a lifetime and my kids are still talking about all they saw which is not easy when a lot of the time is spent in a car! So a big thank you to the team that made this dream come true and in such a wonderful and unforgettable manner!
