    A masterclass in getting things right.  The South African National Parks might have the worlds best national park.  Truly excellent facilities, easily accessible from the smallest of cars to SUVs.  No special equipment required to visit here.

    The game is in abundance around the park which covers an enormous area.  Besides the Big 5, the park offers excellent camps and outstanding views all strategically placed around the park in very convenient areas.

    This is my second self drive visit and I would highly recommend this sanitised adventure to anyone looking to immerse themselves in the beautiful park with all it has to offer.

    Awesome staff. Best cave tour. By far the best zipline experience ever! They are so helpful and friendly. It was my friend's first time zip-lining. They were so friendly and helped her so nicely.

    Amazing sanctuary with true compassion to help these beings live a more natural life free from their ugly human beginnings. Please make this a stop in your itinerary to support these incredible beings. Jane Goodall is a true hero.

    It is a beautiful place, we also did some hiking within the park. There are unexplored areas facing the Riverside Mall. It is breath-taking immediately after the rain. A must-see!

    Clean well maintained mall with a good mix of shops and restaurants. Also a number of movie theaters and the only ice rink in Mpumalanga.

    I use the service for my kids to school. The drivers are on time and when the kids come back, they wait until all the kids are inside the house, then they drive away. Highly recommended for moving around Nelspruit. Cars are clean, card speed point on cars for that cashless service.

    I was left with a free day in Nelspruit after a trip. I contacted Vula Tours and would like to thank them and particularly their guide Hans Swart who took me on a tour of the Panorama Route for the day, before dropping me at the airport. His knowledge of the area and the history made it a very enjoyable day. My grateful thanks.

    Mornay was a knowledgable tour guide who took good care of me and my partner while we visited Kruger National Park. Mornay was himself passionate about wildlife and he shared voraciously about his knowledge of the animals we encountered as we drove through the safari. He knew instinctively how to approach animals safely and he successfully got us up close to see and hear a large male elephant! Beyond the wildlife, his general knowledge of South Africa also gave us a good glimpse of the local way of life. He also introduced us to fresh Biltong, which my partner and I fell in love with instantaneously. What a great snack to have while enjoying the safari!

    It was great camping here as the swimming pool and campsite is close to each other. The kids enjoyed themselves thoroughly. The ablutions and scullery was good but hot water was off on the morning of departure
