Our tour guide on this trip could not have been more helpful. He went out of his way to assist us and accommodate people's wishes as far as individual requests were concerned. The hotels in general were very nice, though the Bongoni Lodge was hard to reach. Game sightings at Bongoni were disappointing. The Kruger was exceptional. Elephant Whispers was outstanding, and the highlight of the tour. We are not shoppers, so were not really interested in the Pilgrim's Rest stores. Lunch there at "The Vine" was average. Time management was hard for our tour guide, due to other couples' requests, but he tried hard to accommodate and please all his passengers. His driving was safe and considerate of others on the road. His knowledge of the country and flora and fauna was excellent. The game drives that he conducted were outstanding.
I do not recommend booking this tour if Viator continues to use Tsakane Safari Camp as the source. The camp is poorly managed with absentee ownership. The description of the itinerary is inaccurate. Food was meager portions, poorly prepared and in some cases inedible . Worse there were safety issues with a vehicle that was old and had treadless tires. Their "swimming pool" measures abut 5' x 7'. While pick-up and drop-off arrangements were provided, the management never confirmed the time we were to leave to return to Johannesburg, and we were left waiting for hours. We were the only 2 in the camp. Avoid Tsakane Safari Camp!
