Holiday review by Robert Atkinson

Date of trip: 07/04/2015
Number of people: 3
Country: South Africa

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "Had an absolutely fantastic time. Saw stunning scenery along the Panorama route, amazing wildlife in Sabi Sands and fascinating culture in Johannesburg."
Tribes Service: "Felt like we got really good recommendations for places to stay and visit. Helpful and friendly service and very good documentation for everything we were doing."
Guides: "Both Koert (Moditlo) and Craig (Cheetah Plains) were excellent guides and both really engaged with our daughter which was great to see."
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Hard to say on this one. Hard to get a real feel for the impact of tourism on the areas we visited."


Rissington Inn
Hazyview was a great place to stay with lots of exciting things to do. Rissington Inn was very nice. Great room with a beautiful view. Most impressive here was the restaurant which had superb food and wine for incredibly reasonable prices.

Our Memories

"Our entire time at Cheetah Plains was outstanding. We were made to feel so welcome by everyone and accommodation and food were superb. Best of all, the game drives gave us the opportunity to see everything we had hoped for and more besides. The guide (Craig) was fantastic especially with our 8 year old daughter who got the opportunity to ask all the questions she desired as well as doing some tracking during the breaks."
