“We recently visited South Africa where we went on your 4 Day Garden Route Adventure Tour. We booked it a couple of months back and the organisation and communication was faultless.
When the big day came, Ferne our guide and driver picked us up from our hotel and we hit it off from day one. Our transport was a new VW Transporter, very comfortable and quiet, which was good as we covered a lot of miles.
We made regular stops along the way and Ferne always knew the best places for food and drink. We weren’t sure what to expect in the way of our evening accommodation as we had booked to stay in guest houses, but they were not at all what we anticipated. Absolutely wonderful, beautiful rooms, great breakfasts, and each guest house had a pool.
The excursions were all very well organized, we visited the Cango Caves, went zip-wiring, visited a private game reserve and went kayaking on the Storms River. We even had an evening barbeque with ostrich on the menu.
We have now returned to the UK with a lot of great memories and some wonderful photos. I can’t recommend this tour highly enough, and we couldn’t have wished for a better guide.
Thank you!”

“Wonderful Peninsula and Garden Route Tour”
5 of 5 stars
Reviewed 9 May 2016

I had the pleasure of traveling with African Blue in April 2016 for 5 days- 1 day Peninsula Tour and 4 day Garden Route Tour.
All my email queries were dutifully and promptly answered by David giving me peace of mind whilst planning the trip.
During the trip, Duncan (our guide) impressed us with his attention to detail, willingness to go the extra mile, his knowledge, and his eagerness to pick up new knowledge and experiences. He even soldiered on through a bout of gastroenteritis which we both picked up from a restaurant. We really appreciated Duncan’s careful driving, given the long distances we covered during this trip.
All in, a great experience with African Blue. Highly Recommended!
