The animals sighted on safari and the cycling.

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

Train - there are a few cheeky hills that require endurance.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

No. Lots of long journeys in the mini bus and most accommodation in chain hotels.

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

It was thoroughly enjoyable with good guides and fellow travellers.

We would like to thank Janice for providing feedback regarding her cycling holiday in South Africa; we are pleased to read that she enjoyed the trip overall. We were sorry, however, to read that she did not find the trip to have a positive impact on the areas visited. This trip is run on small numbers which minimizes impact on the environment and communities visited, it also allows groups to stay at small, privately owned properties for the most part as well as a dedicated eco-lodge where all power on site is wind and solar generated. Entrance fees to Kruger National park also helps support conservation effort towards environmental protection and employment of local people.

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

Cycling through the majestic peaks of the Drakensberg Mountains, cooling off with a swim in refreshing waterholes, wildlife spotting in Kruger National Park.

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

Cycle training will give you a better experience as some of the rides are quite challenging with lots of uphill.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes. The trip was relatively low impact and used accommodation owned/ run by local people.

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

Awesome!
