Please note that Shoestring tours also operate from the Netherlands where packages can also include international flights and itineraries can vary slightly (in terms of numbers of days) as a result.
The tour leader was someone other than was indicated on the site but these tour leaders (Singi and Sandile) were great.
I thought the trip was great.
The itinerary can be even clearer, sometimes there were certain things not described well. The snorkelling can be removed from the excursions list – it was not accompanied and we saw nothing or hardly anything due to the strong currents
It was exactly as I had imagined. A nice variation of accommodations and good variety in the tour in general.
Pocket money advice was pretty consistent with the budget we actually spent. On the website it was mentioned that we could pay in dollars too - this is not so. In RSA they only accept African Rand.
This trip has fully met my expectations and even exceeded them.
It is unfortunate that there are things in the itinerary that are not right. Prices of excursions / activities are not up to date! Taking euros and dollars is not good advice! I could never redeem them and had to walk around for 2 weeks with a lot of cash on me and having to use atms in addition!
