Customer Reviews

We recently returned from a 2 week holiday to South Africa and clearly Ashtons is a good value choice if you are travelling to the Kruger area. After a 5.40am arrival at Johannesburg airport and a fairly speedy exit from the airport, the Ashton mini bus arrived on time to take us to the Kruger. Almost 6 hours later and after 2 comfort breaks we were dropped at the Three Bridges restaurant where our Lodge picked us up. The journey back to Johannesburg 3 days later was equally stress free. Highly recommended service. Would use again. - David Wilson


Excellent service all round top class! - Nicholas Mannion


Everything was perfect. Thanks - Rebeca Dobrica


Reliable, just sit back and enjoy the ride. - Philip Steel


My first trip with Ashtons, and it most certainly wont be my last. The vehicle is clean, comfortable and air conditioned, and the driver was friendly and very cautious on the road. Two pit stops between Hoedspruit and Johannesburg with enough time at each stop to visit the restrooms and purchase refreshments. Highly recommend Ashrons shuttle option when travelling to/from the Lowveld / Kruger area. - Belinda van Dyk
