Thorntree tours and Lyn Mansfield were able to put together a great two day safari for my friends and I while we were in South Africa with less than 48 hours notice.
I contacted Lyn, extremely last minute and asked her if she could put...More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your trip last week.
Even though you missed your flight to Nelspruit, everything went off without a hitch, for which I am grateful.
The group was lovely, such super people, relaxed and happy...More
Thorntree Tours and Safaris are extremely reliable and professional. We had a arranged a day trip with Lyn (owner of Thorntree) a few months back and her knowledge about "all things South Africa" is outstanding. I would highly recommend them.
I requested a breakdown of an invoice I sent to her in Oct 2015. Unfortunately and I'm still unable to fathom out why, she refuses to reply to my emails, cuts me off immediately if I try and phone and has blocked me from WhatsApp....More

I don't even know where to begin. I can't believe our luck when we came across Lyn's brochure! We were half way through our week and we came across Lyn and I wish we had met her sooner! I can say without a doubt that...More

Lyn and Thorntree Tours were highly recommended by the hotel I was staying in so I called her and simply said: "I want to meet some lion cubs!" So Lyn picked me up and we drove to the Lion Park, just outside Johannesburg on her...More
Thank you Lyn, the visits on 3rd & 4th Feb 2016 to Pilanesberg and Soweto have been great experiences on its own, but your great personality, knowledge and experience have made it unforgettable. Massive well done !!

If you are looking for a trusted advisor then Lyn is the one you need.
We had 2 weeks to spend in Southern Africa and wanted to visit at least Cape Town, Soweto and Kruger.

Thanks for your enquiry. I cant see which review you are referring to, but if you give me an idea of what it contained, I can put together a draft itinerary for those dates, once I have determined what accommodation is available. I am guessing Kruger Park Safari, and Cape Town? Is that correct?
