Backpacker Tours in Nelspruit
Go bundu bashing in the Kruger National Park or take a sightseeing jaunt with legend Crazy Dave. He’s super-flexible, offering budget, deluxe and private safari options that are incredible value for money. One of his finest is the Kruger cruise with a sleepover in the Kruger National Park not offered by most other tour operators. Join Dave for day and night game drives, braais under the African skies, the dizzying vistas of the Panoramic Route and the Blyde River, or the far flung sights of Mozambique and Swaziland. It’s all good, clean, er, crazy, fun.
