Ashtons Tours & Safaris launched the Kruger Shuttle in 2010 and in that time, over 46 000 happy and satisfied clients have booked this route with us. The scenic route starts or ends in Johannesburg and takes you on a picturesque drive to Hoedspruit where we safely drop you off at one of seven appointed destinations in the area.
You do have the option to fly but then you would miss the changing landscapes and the natural beauty of the area. Why fly when you can drive and make the journey an unforgettable experience? Another aspect to consider is that the cost of air travel continues to increase and when there is a demand, the flexi pricing of air travel means that the costs climb even higher accordingly. Our fixed pricing means that the cost will always stay the same. Travelling in our air-conditioned comfortable 14-seater vehicles is one of the most affordable and reliable ways to get between Johannesburg and the Greater Kruger area. On a daily basis we have guaranteed departures and also offer a wide range of drop off and collection points which are all close to major reserves in the Hoedspruit area. We can get you to the main gates of all the major reserves in the area and most lodges have arrangements to collect and return clients to our shuttle locations free of charge or for a nominal amount. This means that you can have a little extra money for those much needed sundowner drinks after a hard day of game viewing.
Of course safety is an important aspect for us and one we do not take lightly. Besides being accredited with the necessary organisations such as SATSA, each of our drivers is highly experienced in long distance driving, carries a valid driving licence and has a professional driving permit. We also only allow our drivers to drive for a maximum of 6-8 hours per day.
If we still haven’t sold you on the benefits of travelling with our Kruger Shuttle, how does 30kg of luggage allowance sound? With air travel or even in your own vehicle, you are restricted by the size of your luggage. However our luggage trailers mean that each client is able to bring 30kg of luggage at no charge. So, what are you waiting for? Book a spot on our Kruger Shuttle today with our easy online booking system and you could be driven in style to one of the top Game Reserves in South Africa.
