    Must have patience, but its still a natural beauty to see these animals in their natural habitat. Make sure to either do your drive early morning or late afternoon, because the Park really gets alive during these time slots. Make sure to pack some snacks, because the day might get long after driving so slow to spot different animals on your drive.

    An excellent activity that I highly recommend. The caves are beautiful and filled with history. The guides are highly knowledgeable and make the tour both informative and fun.

    Visited here with friends. Well set-up. There were a number of things closed in the centre due to obvious reasons, but the guide was very informative and he did a wonderful job. The chimpanzees all had a story and were clearly loved by all the staff. Terrible how they were once treated, we are lucky to have rescue organisations such as this.

    Clean well maintained mall with a good mix of shops and restaurants. Also a number of movie theaters and the only ice rink in Mpumalanga.

    We were late booking our trip and Crazy Dave pulled out all the stops. The safari in Sabie Sands were amazing and we stayed at Nottens which had been the high light of our trip. I can’t recommend Flex tours enough. If I could do this all over again we would have booked our entire two week trip through Flex tours.

    Very reliable with excellent service, we took 2 days tour Blyde River to Kruger National Park and it was absolutely great!

    The drivers on both tours were nice, friendly and very professional.
    The office made sure they were in touch with us before each day providing us with information about the timeline, pickup and who will be our drivers for the day.

    They knew we were celebrating my mom 60th birthday and they were so wonderful helping us celebrate and surprised her with cupcakes.

    I highly recommend them!

    I was left with a free day in Nelspruit after a trip. I contacted Vula Tours and would like to thank them and particularly their guide Hans Swart who took me on a tour of the Panorama Route for the day, before dropping me at the airport. His knowledge of the area and the history made it a very enjoyable day. My grateful thanks.

    Mornay was a knowledgable tour guide who took good care of me and my partner while we visited Kruger National Park. Mornay was himself passionate about wildlife and he shared voraciously about his knowledge of the animals we encountered as we drove through the safari. He knew instinctively how to approach animals safely and he successfully got us up close to see and hear a large male elephant! Beyond the wildlife, his general knowledge of South Africa also gave us a good glimpse of the local way of life. He also introduced us to fresh Biltong, which my partner and I fell in love with instantaneously. What a great snack to have while enjoying the safari!

    It was great camping here as the swimming pool and campsite is close to each other. The kids enjoyed themselves thoroughly. The ablutions and scullery was good but hot water was off on the morning of departure
