Reviews for South Africa self drive holiday, Northern experience


review 18 Aug 2009

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

There were many moments, but if i had to choose it was whilst driving through Kruger Park a group of five elephants crossed the road, we stopped the car and waited for them to pass. The last elephant before crossing altogether raised its trunk at us as a sign of thank you for letting them cross. It was fantastic.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Well you have to be adventurous, there is a lot of driving to do to see the various attractions since some are at quite a distance but the scenery and landscapes are breathtaking.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Well I cannot really say as we drove quite a lot to get to see places and therefore we used the car extensively. With regards to locals well we used various types of accommodation and guides that one can say locals benefited directly, but then there are other locals the poor who do not benefit from such a tour.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent and good value for money gives a small glimpse of South Africa’s environment and socio-cultural-economic conditions.
