We genuinely want to give you the lowest price possible, if you hear or know of anyone who arranges a cheaper trip from Pretoria to any of the places listed then please tell us. We will not compromise on quality though. If you want more details on what each trip includes please let us know and we will happily supply you with the information you want. If you would like to combine any half day tours into a full day trip please let us know and we will tell you if it is possible and quote you a price. Entrance fees and return transport are included. (If you want to go to the tours with the cheaper competitor we will try to get you on a tour with them!). All trips are of course dependent on availability. We also have great deals on CAR HIRE, should you decide to explore South Africa /neighboring countries on your own.
We also run a scheme whereby we ask all our guests if they would like to make a voluntary contribution to assist us in helping send just a few of the less fortunate people of South Africa on a trip, whether it be local or to Kruger Park etc. Once we have sufficient donations, depending on how quickly contributions are received, we will decide the destination. We are liaising with some voluntary aid agencies who will assist us in selecting the people who will benefit from these trips.
We do this with no profit to ourselves and we will even add 10% to all contributions received. The contribution can be anything from 1 cent to 1000 Rand (or more!!), it will be what you can afford if anything, any amount will help. We will not look on anyone unfavorably should they choose not to contribute, we completely understand that everyone travels to their own budget, we are a backpackers after all!
TOURS TO KRUGER NATIONAL PARK
We have numerous options for Kruger trips, but this is our recommended choice… we think it is a little different and very special! Not surprising at the price offered!
Both trips include all transportation (leaving and returning to Pretoria with Johannesburg – and Nelspruit pick ups and drop offs), all accommodation, three meals per day and entrance fees. One of the days will be spent visiting the Blyde River Canyon area including Gods Window, 3 Rondavels, Bourkes Luck Pot Holes. The 4 day trip also includes a trip to the Cheetah/Endangered Species Breeding Project and also the Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre known as Moholoholo.
We have a choice of accommodation for the two nights spent in the vicinity of the Park itself. The first is literally over the road from the Park with a lookout to view animals drinking from Crocodile River and in an area where many animals roam free. There is an excellent en-suite dorm with a great balcony, a double room with bathroom next door or a Wendy double, electricity point available. Whichever room you stay in, you are likely to fall asleep to the sensational sounds of lions roaring across an often stunning night sky. There is also a swimming pool and braai (bbq) area.
The second option, in perhaps an area where there is a better chance of seeing animals in the Park depending on the season, is of a chalet nature, sleeping three persons per chalet. Although there are no animals roaming here, this is substituted for spectacular views of the Mariepskop Mountains.
Just ask us for more details of any trip you are interested in and we will supply these with price details. We also offer trips to Mabalingwe and Pilansberg for 3 guets or more.
We can also arrange trips for you with Selous, Nomad, Africa Travel Company, Wagon Trails or The Bundu Safari Company who have fairly similar agendas to the above but you will find our prices could be a little lower than those you see advertised. Just ask us for more details of any trip you are interested in and we will supply these with price details.
