Amazing trip! If you don’t backpack often, I recommend upgrading to the 3 star guest house or higher.

It was a little different than I expected. However things turned out well in ways I had not expected.

Operator's comment: Underpromise and then overdeliver - that's what we aim for. Good to know we surprised you and you got much more than what you expected. Yes, our complete combo package offers free days in Cape Town, and sometimes the weather does not always allow you to make the most of the included activities - Table Mountain cable car tickets are valid for 7days so at least you have a few chances to tick off this adventure from your bucket list. Never stop exploring, from Ferdi & team Hotspots2c

Maudi was knowledgeable and friendly. My favorite part was Addo National Park. The backpacker hostels were fine

Operator's comment: Thanks Cynthia for this top-score review. Addo Elephant National Park is most certainly a highlight with many, offering many sort-after encounters with the Big 5 (we hope you got to see your fair share!). Until we meet again, and I know you'll be back for more soon - from theHotspots2c team.

Operator's comment: Thanks Razvan for your valuable feedback about your safari tour experience. We're supper happy to know that you liked the insider knowledge and guidance of your tour guide, Maudi. We've informed him of your praise and he remembers this trip very well too. Sadly the accommodation supplier for this tour package did not match our high standards on this particular trip. We never want to be known as a way to 'average' or just 'ok' travel experiences, so your feedback helped us re-evaluate this product offering and the accommodation options we usually choose to use on tour. This incident was investigated after the tour and we're happy to report that your review will help prevent it from happening in future. Thanks again for taking the time to write this; caring about our tour products as much as we care about matching, even better, exceeding expectations. If you ever are back in South Africa, please let us know. Always keep exploring, from team Hot Spots 2C.

Fantastic trip, our guide Maudi was so helpful and fun and everything ran very smoothly. High point was Addo elephant park.

Operator's comment: Hi Heather. Thanks for taking the time to review your Hotspots2c experience with Maudi as tour guide. Five-star service is exactly what we work towards and always a blessing to be rewarded full marks by a customer. Ahh, Addo - our happy place! Over 600 elephants - that's a density of about 2,8 elephants per square kilometre - perhaps the highest in Africa. Pure paradise for the ellies and us :) When are you coming back? - Always keep exploring, from Ferdi & team Hotspots2c

People are at the heart of everything we do and our guides are a vital part of what makes our trips some of the best in the country. Our passion for sharing our awe-inspiring scenic backyard and getting you in the know on every single detail of each destination is why our customers keep coming back.
