My tour operator booked round trip service for our group of 10 outbound 30 April to Kapama returning May 3 to JNB for flight to Port Elizabeth. Outbound 10 persons 11 suitcases and 10 hand carry the luggage trailer was not big enough so used van truck as well. Six hours.
Return 2 persons decided to take a flight carried their 3 suitcases and 2 hand carry with them but we were still 8 persons with 8 suitcases and 8 hand carry. Safarilink on their own imaginative irresponsibility sent a small van with 10 seats and a mini luggage trailer with 1/3 less than the capacity so they had to use more than half of the least bench with luggage and two persons were forced to sit in a space for 1.5 persons including myself who had to sit with one leg on the wheel and other leg with a torn right knee meniscus hardly stretching and not able to wear the seatbelt. I spoke to the manager on the phone and showed him how we were sitting but he seemed very arrogant and said he would find out how much we paid which was same amount as outbound and until this day refused any refund. I told him at the time it was the first time in
My 55 years of travel in the travel industry I had such an experience including the person next to me luckily she is short had terrible back pain by the time we arrived JNB 6.5 hours later. Photos of how two persons had to sit for over six hours and we paid the full amount for a van for 10 persons with proper luggage trailer
On their own account they made suppositions including if the two persons who took their three suitcases and two hand carry them luckily can you imagine if they had left their luggage to be transported in the van.
Definitely this the most irresponsible service I have ever had and their staff much to
Be desired except for driver.
So beware if you ever use their services

On the way to Johannesburg from Hoedspruit, we passed through some breathtaking mountain scenery and I am grateful that our driver had such a thorough understanding of the scenic route and could fill us in on some interesting anecdotes. Thank you to our driver Ruben

Victor made our travel such an amazing one ! Very cautious of our comfort and needs and he knows the area so well you can basically ask him anything about wildlife, South Africa, safaris, fishing, food, etc… Would recommend to all my friends ! Thank you so much once again !

I have a serious complaint about the Safarilink transfer from Johannesburg to Kruger and back. The van is very small and cramped for a 5+ hour drive, and they really pack it. As if that wasn't uncomfortable enough, people were vaping throughout the ride making it very difficult for me to breathe. I decided to mention it to the driver on my return in hopes the ride home would be better, but when I told him about it, he seemed instantly irritated and uninterested in addressing the issue. I went to the van to see if I could get a better seat to find it reeked of vape from the drive up that morning. When I asked the driver if he could air out the van before we leave, he brushed me off again and said he would deal with it later. Having asthma and other allergic reactions to it, I took it upon myself to air out the van myself. I sat in the front and upon him entering the drivers seat, I finally noticed that he was the one who reeked of vape and continued to reek of it after every stop we made, so I see why he was protecting the people who were causing the problem, which could have also been him, rather than the person being affected by it. When I told him someone was vaping in the van later on in the drive, instead of addressing it, he instantly and without any kind of investigation or inquiry said, "no one is vaping." What kind of idiots do these people think we are? We can smell it, and with me, it affects my breathing, and my ears pop very painfully. The driver was very concerned about people's comfort when it came to air conditioning, but when it came to someone breaking the law and causing someone health problems, he was totally apathetic and even a bit hostile. Safarilink needs to require drivers to assure the safety of the riders by making sure vaping is not happening, and when it is reported, there needs to be a plan in place to address and completely eliminate the problem. Many people have adverse reactions to vape, and we know little about the long term effects, and most people do not detect it or do not yet understand what is causing the reaction their body is having to it. As for me, I feel like I'm being poisoned when I encounter it. There is no question when it happens. My entire body reacts to it instantly, and from my horrible experiences with it since 2019, I know exactly what it is and how the different vapes smell. Please ensure that this does not happen to future passengers.

We use SafariLink, mainly for transporting guests, family and ourselves, to and from our game farm to OR Tambo.
We always ask for Victor as our driver and over time he’s become part of the family. Always punctual, considerate & safe driving, with spotlessly clean vehicles and a wealth of knowledge, we wouldn’t consider any other options!

My previous disappointment was definitely saved by my recent trip to JHB. To my luck I was the only passenger:) felt like the shortest drive as Sbu(Subusiso) made it very comfortable for me. Felt safe and taken care of. Thanks Sbu!

We had victor as our driver to and from our destination. He was very punctual at the airport collection and return journey back to Johannesburg.
On the journey victor pointed things of interest and was very knowledgeable on various subjects.
He was a safe driver and the journey was pleasant.

We got a shuttle from Safari Link for our trip from Umkumbe safari lodge near Kruger NP to JNB airport. The driver Tumelo was fantastic. He came in early, waited for us. His drive was smooth and he was a very careful, safe driver. We took some breaks on the way and he even bought us some water. Highly recommended.

I had ordered a shuttle for me and my family from Johannesburg to our Safari Camp in Karongwe Game Reserve. We ordered a privat shuttle, and this was done through their website long time in advance.

We stayed at a hotel in Sandton, and had ordered the transportation at 8 o’clock in the morning, but already 7.30 the driver was there. He was kind and friendly, and as soon we have had a small breakfast we were all ready for take off. The quality of the vehicle was also good.

He drove in a normal speed, and we had a break about halfway for stretching the legs and some food. We arrived the Safari Camp at the time as prefigured.

So thanks to the driver Gerhard and Safari Link for giving us a good start on the Christmas Holiday.
