    We visited Ushaka aquarium and water park with our kids aged 7 and 4. They had a great time. You enter through quite a random shopping 'village' and then can get separate tickets to enter the aquarium and the water park. We did both. The aquarium was fun. Amazing dolphin show all about sustainablity and the environment which was incredible to see but somewhat contradictory. The main bit of the aquarium with the tanks is in a huge ship which was cool. The rest was a bit hit or miss. The penguins' enclosure was a bit sad.
    The water park wasn't the most modern and wasn't so clean but the kids thoroughly enjoyed it.

    A great day in Hluhluwe. Our guide Sibo was excellent. We were delayed getting off the cruise ship but communication was excellent with a WhatsApp group set up so everyone knew what was happening. Sibo then altered the tour to fit in with what we wanted because of the reduced time available. The actual trip round the park in an open jeep was tremendous with loads of different animals seen.Highly recommended!

    We organised a trek in the Drakensberg mountains with Zulu safari. They agreed to give us a personalised service by driving us to the starting point and picking up a few days later at the end of the trek. They were super flexible, helped us to find the supplies we needed and arranged a last minute accommodation for us as ours wasn’t in a safe spot in Durban. Communication though e-mails and WhatsApp was very easy.
    We are 100% satisfied and warmly recommend booking trips with them. Plus the manager is sooooo friendly, has thousands of stories to tell and advises to give!

    an absolutely amazing experience!! the team is so professional and relaxed and the trip to get to the location at sea itself is very exciting. the pictures and video are so cool and the sharks are a fantastic sight!! this is definitely something you don't want to miss out on if you're in the South Coast. 10/10 experience <33

    I booked my 2-day Drakensberg hiking tour with Rhys, who connected us to our amazing guide, Mike. Here are three reasons why I recommend Rhys and Mike:

    1. Although the company only formally offers 3-day Drakensberg hike tours on their website, Rhys was willing to work with me to customize a 2-day tour based on my preferences and constraints.

    2. Mike was an exceptional hiking tour guide. He was knowledgeable and entertaining and customized our second-day hike based on our hiking experience and interests. He picked us up extra early so we could fit two big hikes into our itinerary.

    3. The tour said that "dinner was included," but didn't mention that we would be getting a lovely braai from Mike against the backdrop of the Amphitheater. We expected an epic hike (which we did get), but didn't expect such an awesome dinner as well.

    My return trip to Aliwal Shoal, South Africa l was very happy chosing ScubaXcursion.
    A very nicely setup and organized scuba shop with all the equipment l needed including Nitrox and 15 L steel tanks.
    No extras/surprises on my final bill.
    I prefer the smaller dive group trips and certainly that was the case.
    If l return the Aliwal Shoal l certainly will chose ScubaXcursion.
    And of course there were lots of Ragged Tooth Sharks again this year.
    Thank

    What a great safari. Our guide, Paul, was top notch. He’s enthusiastic without wearing you out, and he clearly loves what he does. The resort they arranged for our overnight stay was basic, but we were ultimately really charmed by it. We would book with this company again without hesitation!

    Sue Garson and her team crafted a unique once-in-a-lifetime itinerary for our group, including the best of South Africa and three full days exploring Kruger National Park. All guides were excellent.

    I have to HIGHLY recommend Segway Gliding Tours on their service. Tracy in the office and our guide on tour, amazing service to the both of them. They make you feel like family and calm your nerves (which I certainly needed). Our guide was so helpful and took us on a very interesting path...taking AMAZING videos and photos for us. I definitely would recommend them to anyone that is interested in Segways, as well as bicycles etc!!

    We were well looked after and led by our guide, Jacki. We saw a large range of animals, the highlight being a close encounter with an elephant. Food and service 10/10. Rooms were worthy of a 3 star rating and WiFi had just been upgraded and adequately did the job. Showers were hot although water flow was poor. If you're looking for value for money, don't look any further, excellent.

    I got a transfer from Durban to Makhasa Game Lodge with David from Wild Routes. Truly the best! He was on time, drove nicely and so friendly. Such a pleasure!
