Please Review Your Overall Experience And What Your Highlights Were

This was our first trip with Explore and it fulfilled all expectations. The accommodation was varied, from hotels to huts but all rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfasts were included and places to eat lunch and dinner were well chosen and reasonably priced. Activities were varied and enjoyable. Our first trek at Umfolozi delivered 3 of the big 5 and our guide's great knowledge and powers of observation added to our enjoyment. The second part of our trip based around Cape Town was completely different but included many highlights. These included the ascent of Table Mountain on a fantastic clear day. Some of the group walked up, despite the extreme heat. Seeing the Boulders Beach penguins was amazing and we loved exploring Stellenbosch and Oudtshoorn. All in all a busy but rewarding 3 weeks

Our Response

Thank you for your feedback.  We were sorry the group could not stay in the Beehive Huts on this occasion: unfortunately, although our agent noticed immediately when the Mlilwane management sent through the booking confirmations that the dates were wrong, they were unable to obtain the huts for the correct dates.  We offered our customers compensation in relation to this, but we acknowledge that the disappointment remained.  We are confident the issue will not recur.

What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour

The highlight was our visit to Rorkes Drift with our tour leader Graeme's extremely interesting and knowledgeable talk on the history of this place. Our most memorable moment was trying to sleep in a tent pitched on a 'car park' in the Kruger with rain and very high winds and the sound of lions roaring in the near distance.

Tour Leader Name

Graeme and Grant

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader

Both Graeme and Grant were excellent leaders, very knowledgeable in flora and fauna. Excellent drivers and Great organisers in the first part of our tour our leader in the Cape tour was Granville who made excellent use of his mobile phone when itineraries had to be changed at the last minute due to flooding. he was also very supportive when I had difficulties on a particularly steep walk.

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

Make sure you are fit and ready for lots of difficult walking and very long sometimes rough journeys and early starts.

Do You Have Anything Else To Add

Our night in the Kruger should never had been in tents as we arrived late pm then had to leave again 6am the following morning with the need to pitch and take down our tents during this time.

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader

All were excellent. Their knowledge and experience of the tours was superb and they were funny and helpful throughout. Without these this tour wouldn't have been half as good.

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

Get our tour guides!! Make sure you read your trip notes carefully, some of our group didn't bring sleeping bags for the camping nights. Luckily the guides had extras.

Do You Have Anything Else To Add

We started the tour a day late due to the flight being cancelled but Explore sorted out our late arrival with minimum fuss. Similarly we were not on system at Jo'burg airport and again Explore emergency service sorted this within a half hour. Excellent service. Fantastic holiday.

It was amazing seeing the whales from the land in Hermanus, best time for this is Sept/ Oct, however we saw plenty of whales in early Nov. St Lucia was another surprise, great wildlife and beach. The bbq lunch at the beach was a great. There is a whale watching trip in St Lucia  which is an optional extra, its worth bearing in mind the sea is really rough here and and you are being driven into the big waves.
