Hi there 

I am going on this tour on March 13th, is this going to be the same TManager? 

Can we ask questions directly to them or to something who can give accurate replies (not customer service oops). 
It's my first discovery and safari tour in Africa especially (haven't been before) 

I have had wonderful answers here regarding other concerns for vaccines and so on... I am just taking this opportunity to ask if we can be given a sort of list of things to bring with us ? especially for the safari. I know a lot of people give random answers on forums on-line on trip advisor and anywhere else but I would LOVE to have a list from the Tour Manager who knows exactly , I assume  Big Grin

Also regarding the hotel at Kruger Park at the end of the Experience Soutn Africa tour, I have been told rooms are far and people have to walk a lot to get to their rooms (in the dark)  Confused well, better being warned! also other details such as Wi-Fi access in hotels etc ... 

A big thank you in advance. ??

Good Afternoon Shadi,

The TM for March 13th is yet to be confirmed.

We won't be able to provide you the TM's personal email address due to privacy protection policies.

For the trip, I would advise that you bring light, cotton clothing in light tones (avoid red as this attracts animals, and also avoid blue and black as you may come across Tsetse flies). You should also bring long sleeved shirts, a pair of long trousers, or a long dress (for ladies) as evenings can be quite chilly and this can keep mosquitos at bay. You should also bring a durable pair of trainers, as well as a wide brimmed hat to protect yourself from the sun, sunscreen and a pair of sunglasses. http://www.krugerpark.co.za/Kruger_Park_...afari.html

The Protea Hotel by Marriott, Hazyview at Kruger Park has free Wi-Fi. It also comes equipped with air conditioned rooms which have satellite TV as well as tea/coffee facilities. There is also a bar area available.

Kindest Regards,
Amy

I stayed at the Protea Hazyview and could only get wifi to work if I sat in reception, and even then it was very hit and miss. Rooms are spread out across the complex and I really struggled to find mine upon arrival in the dark, had to use the light on my phone! It's a lovely hotel though with fab rooms, and the staff are all lovely.

Have a fantastic trip & please write a review when you're back to let us know how you got on!

I would recommend taking a small torch as quite a few safari hotels have low lighting on external pathways to keep light pollution to a minimum. Also wet wipes and a light scarf as the safaris can get quite dusty. A good camera is a must along with spare batteries and charger. Insect repellant (check whether Malaria is prevalent in the area in case you need medication), your usual pills and potions and a small first aid kit is sensible. I’m sure other forum users will help with other suggestions.
I hope you have an amazing time - Africa is my favourite continent - one which I keep going back to.

Good evening Amy,

Many thanks for your reply.

It's clear that I wouldn't have asked any email here. Don't worry. I believe you are yourself maybe a TM and your answers seem very good to me.

I do hope my room won't be too far that I will need a torch to get to it in the evening after dinner like a lady said on an other forum ? especially when you travel on your own, it's not something you would like to experiment.

I am confident that Just You choose the best accommodation for their customers and that all will be fine. It's unbelievable the number of false or (right) information you can get. That is why I thought asking directly at the source.

Thanks again !
Best regards

Shadi

Sorry Amy , I also forgot to ask what is the duration of the return trip from Johannesburg to Kruger Park? I believe this is done by car or bus?

Are the roads easy or is it a rough journey ?

Many thanks
Shadi

Good Morning Shadi,

I would bring a torch with you just in case you feel that it is too dark when you're walking back to your room.

Kindest Regards,
Amy

Good Afternoon Shadi,

Travel time is roughly 4hrs - 5hrs, however there are pit stops along the way.

The trip back is on a tarred road, not a bumpy road.

Kindest Regards,
Amy
