We've just got home from South Africa, having had a wonderful holiday.

We booked our holiday through Virgin but Thomson's Africa were the company who took over on our arrival in Capetown.

We did the 10 day Grande Garden Route which was absolutely wonderful and our guide was Irshaad Gaffoor (Ish to us). Honestly you couldn't meet a nicer guy, he was friendly with a good sense of humour, very knowledgable, always on time, very safe driver and would always go that extra mile to keep everyone happy in our group of 10.

I would definitely recommend this Garden route tour and it would be an added bonus if you get this guy as your guide.

We participated in an all day safari at Kruger National Park. Start was before sunrise (6:00 am) and ended after 4:00 pm. Our guide, Elvis, was very knowledgeable on the area and animals. Working with his team of three vehicles he position us into the perfect viewing location. While watching a few sedentary lions for a bit he noticed an elephant cross behind us and knew the lions would soon be on the move. We relocated to the only place with that view. This happened several times that day where his experience heightened our views. We saw just about every major animal and at least 15 antelope types, baboons, monkeys and colorful birds.
Rest breaks and lunch made the day very enjoyable to all of our group.
We would highly recommend this group for your Safari.

Brian was our tour guide for the day and was great. We went around the area of Cape Town to the south and eastern side. We got to learn from his experiences about the city and where they have been as a country. We got to see many different animals such as the baboons, ostriches, penguins (at the penguin colony), and many others. The views from the top of the point where the light house is at the cape are great. All you see is ocean and the next stop is Antarctica! We would then see the penguins in their colony and then have a nice lunch at a local restaurant. All in all it was a great experience for the day.

You'll get a great day tour of the Cape Town area and Peninsula. It's a good way to see a lot in a short amount of time. We had a great guide that had some great stories and jokes! The only downside is that you are moving quick, so you don't get a lot of time at any one place - but you can always re-visit the places you liked!

Thompson's of Africa provide two tours, one each day in Cape Town. The first one was Table Mountain, Signal hill, the fort, Capital gardens, Bo-kaap. It was very informative and our guides were excellent. They knew their history, great drivers. Brian was our guide for the Cape Town tour and Michael was our guide for the cape of Good Hope. Wonderful two days!!!
