Emma "Thank you for five amazing days! The guides were funny and knew som much stuff that I've never heard of before. The room was like stepping into a dream and I wish I could have taken that bed with me home! The wifi was fast and very cheap just remember thornhill2. The vegetarian food was one of the best I've had on the trip and the desserts- I could have eaten tons of them. Great help from Chris an..."

    1.0 - Bad

    We booked a Kruger experience tour with Intrepid. Unfortunately my wife experienced a sudden illness condition about 40 days prior to departure and she was not able to do any air travel. Dealing with Intrepid was a shocking experience. They were not prepared to change our dates and charged us a 50% cancellation fee of the total tour cost. Even though we had provided Intrepid notice well in advance of the tour date. In addition they took over 7 days to advise us that they could not move the dates and would need to cancel. Furthermore, I made a direct complaint to their complaints department on how we were treated and never received a response. Please be aware that Intrepid have significant cancellation penalties and are not responsive or even try to help you out once they have your money. I will never be booking a tour with Intrepid.

    Hello Keith, Thank you for sharing your experience with us and we regret these unfortunate circumstances. While we do maintain cancellation policies according to our terms and conditions agreed to at the time of booking, we can certainly appreciate your frustration in this instance. These policies are certainly not intended to penalize our valued customers but are necessary to secure all necessary services for them well in advance with our local operators. We were unable to locate the correspondence you mention in your comment but would be happy to look into this further on your behalf if you would kindly contact us at customerrelations@intrepidtravel.com. Thank you very much

    Outstanding in every phase. The game drives were wonderful. As was the lodge staff. The lodge itself. And the food.

    My experience: 1. Awesome - for the Kruger National Park day tour on 1 Jan 2017 I had a very experienced and knowledgeable guide and plus some luck. Almost just at the entrance of the park we found that we were greeted by leopard - it was the New Year Day - 1 Jan 2017 and the first animal we saw it was the most rare one out of Big 5 to spot - leopard. I saw all Big 5 and plus hippos, wild dogs (both are very rare to see), lots of giraffes, zebras, various types of antelopes, wildebeests and birds. The guide was also like a zoology and biology teacher who taught us about various animals behaviours. 2. Awesome - game drives at Kapama private game reserve. I took additional 2 game drives making it in total 3 and all 3 of these game drives were different and great experiences with lots of Big 5 and other animals.
