  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    My daughter and I had a fantastic day out. We were properly looked after, the staff were professional and courteous and would go out of their way to make it an enjoyable day. Thanks to two greedy and crafty orcas, sadly the great whites were in hiding however we saw up to 15 species including the bronze sharks with teeth that I didn't want anywhere near me! Many thanks

    Born in Africa Tour Guide Mike was an excellent host and a native. He explained a lot about south africa and the wineries, mountains, history, and culture on the trip to aquila game reserve. He was good in that he wanted us to get there early for lunch and sit in front of the safari vehicle cuz its less bumpy. Quite humorous also. We got to see rhino, lion, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, wilderbeast, and spring buck. The safari tour guide was knowlegable w the animals. It's a great de wet cellar on the way back. Picked up a 3 bucks bottle of smoove rose to take back to hawaii. AURYTE!

    We visited aquila in January 2024.
    We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel on the day with other people who were collected from their hotels. It was a 2 hour drive to the reserve and you stop half way at a petrol station for refreshments which was good.
    The van we were in was quite old but had air con. The driver hardly spoke to any of us on the way there or back.
    When you arrive you have lunch before the safari.lunch was a buffet and there was plenty of choice and the food was very nice.
    After lunch you go outside and there are several safari vehicles waiting.its a free for all to get on one ! They are open but have covered roofs which is good for cover from the sun.
    Our driver was really chatty and we saw all the animals and he gave us plenty of time to take photos .he had a good sense of humour and was very informative.
    You are driven round the reserve and stop half way round for a free drink but the toilets there made the area very smelly. After the drink you are taken back round the reserve by a different route.
    The tracks are very bumpy but we found this hilarious.
    Once back you have time to go the gift shop and get a drink before getting back on your minibus.
    All in all it was an enjoyable day but this isn't a proper safari. It is a flat game reserve where you are driven round in a circle. The lions are in a large gated part of the reserve and the other animals are in the other parts.
    It's not like being out in the proper Bush but it's a good chance to see the animals if you don't have time for a longer safari.

    Maudi made this trip an incredible experience. His friendly nature, his immense knowledge about local history and his jokes kept us all entertained on a wonderful trip - thank you so much Maudi, you're a great man.
    The trip itself was amazing too, we saw Elephants, cheetahs, wildebeest, rhinos, hippos, many kinds of antelope, and zebras - would absolutely recommend this to anyone.
    The tent we stayed in at the lodge was great too, and the food at the restaurant there was really good - overall a fantastic experience!

    We did the 2 day tour and our expectations were exceeded. Our driver Mawanda was the best, he could tell us something about everything and made it understandable and he also got us safely to our destinations. The accommodation and the safari were also great, we saw a wide variety of animals and everything was explained to them.

    Zaine is great fun. Request him as he sets tone for whole adventure. Drive to park is extraordinarily beautiful. Park delivered. Park guide also excellent with young children.

    The people and the guide are what makes a tour enjoyable. I was lucky to have Mordie as our guide and a great group of 7 other fellow travellers from around the world.

    I understand the itinerary was changed due to past feedback and I really enjoyed the tour because it was a mix of driving (lots of driving, it’s a large distance to cover in a short period of time) with various stops and the Private game reserve as well as Mordie driving us through Addo were excellent.

    Mordie, I have no idea how you found some of those animals!

    At the lodges, dinner was included and a lunch at another stop. The food was amazing with a chance to try local game (you must try ostrich, delicious).

    I booked 3 star accommodations but for some reason (lucky me) I was upgraded for a few nights. The Addo Wildlife lodge 4* room was fantastic! Wish we could have stayed a little longer!

    Hotspots2C was easy to deal with. Loved their timely communication via WhatsApp and they were very responsive! Thanks for all the organizing you guys implemented!

    Thoroughly enjoyable and recommended.

    It was a great hike. I had a great time. The view is splendid. Tauriq is a great guide, very kind, knows the mountain and the history of the city very well. I will keep very good memories.

    We never really thought about going to South Africa. At least not until we were in the Azores and met Martijn and Mona.
    For us, it is really difficult to find good diving guides arounf the world, but Martijn is really a professionist.
    So we booked this trip and this is one of the best thing we did.
    We really enjoyed the time we spent in Simonstown.
    The staff of Shark Explores is really nice, kind, friendly and professional. They did everything they can to grant you amazing experience both under and outside the water.
    The boats are really confortable.
    We highly recommend them both to divers and non divers.
