"Amazing experience "
We loved our safari trip. The hotel was really nice and comfortable, the hotel staff was very friendly and the food delicious! We got to see the Big 5 in our safaris and many more animals. Our safari guide, Michael, was great, he was really funny. Gideon, our trip guide, was excellent, really helpful and very attentive. Thank you to the whole staff for making this such an amazing trip! We highly recommend the 4 day Kruger Safari!!

The booking of the 4-days Kruger Tour with the panoramic route was easy and the communication very efficient.
Lodging, Safaris, Guides, Food, everything was just perfect!
All Guides and staff were very friendly, attentive and likeable. Guides were very professional and gave us interesting insight in nature and society.
We would highly recommend David and Adventour.

Thabo was an excellent driver, he was good with conversation, but also gave us time to sleep in the 5 hr commute to and from O.R Tambo.
I liked that the over all package literally included all expenses paid, no more was needed on the location, I also liked the authentic feel of the lodge rooms and grounds.
I loved the open vehicle and the supply of binoculars from our guide Dion.

"Amazing Kruger safari! "
This was our first safari experience and definitely not our last. Very good communication with the team, fast responding and flexible. We want to give a special thank you to our driver William between camp and safari, providing us with hot amazing coffee before our sunrise and giving us very interesting information about the animals. Also a thank you to the cook (who made delicious vegetarian food) and the staff in the lodge, everybody’s so helpful and nice. We will definitely come back!!!

"Amazing and economic safari"
Everything was better than I expected. From the pick-up in my accommodation in a comfortable minivan, the stay in a lodge where I felt part of a family, the sunset tour and the incredible full day tour. I definitely recommend it and would book it again if I ever return to South Africa.

"Doesn't feel budget at all"
The whole-day safari with Dylan was great. He made sure that we saw everything and had razor-sharp eyes, telling us interesting Insights about the birds, the insects and of course the large animals.
Homebase Kruger was a very relaxing lodge, everyone made sure that we are happy all the time. Value for money there is great, the room was nice and clean, the food fresh and tasty.

"Perfect! Loved it :) "
I loved the whole experience. It was very convenient first: a driver came to pick me up directly at my airbnb in Benoni. The lodge was very pleasant and laid back, a very quiet, peaceful place among the trees,, and the Kruger park is amazing!!!! I added a bush walk to the two tours and it was a wonderful experience. David responds immediately to any message you send him and he is a very friendly and knowledgeable person you can totally trust. Will do it again! :-)

"Great time at Kruger"
Lodge was nice but only get WiFi for free during first day - then it's paytime. Front desk staff could work a bit on customer service skills. Restaurant and house cleaning staff were excellent. Safari guides knowledgeable and safety oriented - friendly but professional. Learned a lot about local wildlife.
from Mozambique, July 2019
Everything just perfect. David was extremely professional and helpful. So was Kingsley.
Animals just outside the lodge and the cherry on top got to see the big five and many others.

"Excellent value for money"
I had a great experience on the budget safari. Every staff member I met was pleasant and professional. Pickup and drop-off from the airport was great. Thom (the driver) was a great conversationalist and generally a fun guy. The lodgings were great and the meals were wonderful. Safaris were fantastic with knowledgeable guides and comfortable rides.

"Tudo muito legal e bem organizado "
Eu e meu amigo Luis adoramos o serviço personalizado fornecido! Todos os colaboradores envolvidos foram muito gentis e profissionais.Desde o início, David se mostrou solicito e sempre disponível para tirar dúvidas!
Tom, a estrela do time, foi o responsável pelo nosso translado Johannesburg-Hazyview e Hazyview-Panorama Route-Johannesburg, ele fez de tudo para aproveitarmos cada segundo da viagem, se esforçando para se fazer entender :)
Durante o safari Michael foi nosso guia, sempre alerta, garantiu que vissemos os big five! Além de sempre ter algo novo para contar sobre cada animal.
A acomodação foi bem confortável, os jantares foram maravilhosos! Tudo perfeito. Recomendarei a experiencia para todos que perguntarem sobre!

"Safari better than expected, amazing location and lodge."
The first part, especially. Balula reserve and our ranger were wonderful, and the lodge as well.
from Great Britain, July 2018
"Wonderful safari experience at a very reasonable cost"
For me the Kruger National Park, its views, vegetation, birds, animals, sights, sounds, smells, it's so special and amazing to be there. We were very lucky and saw a very great deal on two safaris, the third day was very cold and we saw less, but I saw more detail of what I did see, was more relaxed and could enjoy the Bush as it is.
This tour gives people access to the Park, for a very reasonable price. The lodge accommodation is comfortable, lots of hot water, a lovely pool, and delicious freshly-cooked dinner every night. The staff are friendly, helpful and kind.
The tours are very good, and the guides professional, determined to give us the best viewing experience.

De todo atendeimento no geral, todos muito prestativos e amoroso conosco! Um lugar extremamente acolhedor!

"Tom and Michael were amazing! What a great experience! "
My husband and I enjoyed the personalized service, the hospitality of all those at the resort, and the great communication from David. Tom picked us up from our hotel and was our main driver, he was very personable and friendly and a joy to talk to. Michael was our guide through Kruger Park who has a Hawkeye for spotting animals and was determined to make sure we got to see all of the big five, which we did! We never felt rushed we never felt like we were cattle being herded we always felt as though everyone want to make sure we had the best experience possible. The accommodations were very comfortable and we enjoyed getting to have dinner by the campfire every night as we live in Orlando and it’s typically hot and cannot have bonfires. Everyone jumped to our aid whenever we had a request for anything and provided great insight and information of what to do during our free time. It was just a great experience overall, I work for the Ritz Carlton and we live in Orlando so we’re always looking for great service, and that is just exactly what we got.We would definitely recommend our safari tour to anyone looking to visit and our friends and family.

"Budget Safari with a first rate experience!"
I opted for a budget option as a thought the cost for most others packages was excessive given that the important factor was the park and wildlife - and that is a constant no matter what you book. I booked the Budget 3 day/2 night Adventour package and I was not disappointed! Notable positives are:-
- the excellent swift communication from David
- the slick pick up at the airport by Thom
- the excellent service from the lodge staff
- the skilled guide Mike and scoring the ‘Big Five’ in the two days; amazing!
- the accommodation although a little tired is adequate, clean and in a short distance to the Kruger gates
- a pool is an absolute bonus
- food choices were very good catering for vegetarians
- arranging a table for all the single travellers was a great idea
- transfer back was exceptional as David and Thom kindly arranged to drop me at a private address in Pretoria; thank you.
If you are in any doubt about booking this trip - don’t be; it’s excellent value for money. No frills but surely this trip is about the safari!
from South Africa, April 2018
"Wonderful experience! "
Panorama Route was definitely worth it! David showed us around and was very informative during the overall trip.
I also had a very nice room and overall very clean in the lodge and very friendly staff.

"Safari en el Kruger"
La experiencia fue extraordinaria, la gran disposición de todas las personas a las que tuve la oportunidad de conocer desde que llegué a Johannesburgo. Me gustó todo lo que viví en estos cuatro días, que realmente se quedaron muy cortos. El ver los animales y poder ver leones de muy cerca, fue de lo mejor!

I was picked up at my Hotel in Johannesburg by Thom. He did a great job driving us there and also giving information on the way. Made the 5 hour drive go fast.
The safari was also vel arranged. Nothing to complain.

"Insgesamt tolles Erlebnis"
Bei der Safari haben wir alle Big 5 gesehen und noch vieleandere Tiere. Unser Guide hat uns einiges über die Tiere erklärt was ich sehr gut fand. Er hat versucht, dass wir so viele Tiere wie möglich zu sehen bekommen.
Die Unterkunft hat mir auch sehr gut gefallen. Das Personal war sehr freundlich und das Essen hat sehr gut geschmeckt.
from Austria, November 2018
"Das Wichtigste ...die Safari war leider ein Reinfall"
Die Lodge war bis auf den etwas in die Jahre gekommenen Poolbereich top! Die Zimmer/Hütten waren groß und sehr schön eingerichtet. Das Essen war sehr lecker und das Personal extrem freundlich und zuvorkommend ... bis auf unseren Tourguide Michael!
Vor allem Thom war super, er hat uns vom Flughafen abgeholt und zum Schluss haben wir mit ihm noch eine Panoramatour durch den Blyde Canyon gemacht, was sehr beeindruckend war. Er war immer äußerst freundlich und hat uns auch wieder direkt zum Hotel in Johannesburg gebracht.
