It is one of the most affordable & reliable ways to get between Johannesburg and the Greater Kruger area

Guaranteed daily departures with no single supplements

A wide range of drop-off/collection points close to all major reserves in the Hoedspruit area. By getting the clients to the main gates of all the major reserves in the area, the need for expensive local private transfers (e.g. Airport-Lodge) is largely removed – most lodges collect/return clients at the Ashtons shuttle locations for free or for a nominal charge

The product is endorsed by all the major game lodges and tour operators that operate in the Hoedspruit Area.

All Ashtons Kruger Shuttle vehicles are of international standard – clients are transferred in Toyota Quantum 10/14-seaters.

We focus on comfort and safety providing air-conditioning, bottled water, individual seat belts, cup-holders, magazine nets and satellite tracking.

Each vehicle has a relevant transport permit plus R100 million passenger liability insurance as well as PAX-Sure insurance of R500 000 per seat

Each driver is highly experienced in long-distance driving, carries a valid driving licence and a professional driving permit, and drives for only 6-8 hours per day

Customer Reviews

Great experience, driver very friendly and sticks to time. Thumbs up - Charmaine Manana


I can say that Ashtons Tours shuttle is a reliable service, staff is kind, professional, and vehicles are new. - Beniamino Romagnoli


Ashtons Tours was a very convenient, fun and cheap way to travel from OR Tambo Johannesburg Airport to our destination at Kruger Park. We had to wait for about 10-15 min longer than scheduled but other than that, we were extremely happy with the service. The driver was very friendly, open and informative and was always out to make his guests feel as comfortable as possible answering questions along the way and offering coffee/smoking/bathroom breaks. It sometimes felt like he was a tour guide as well telling us interesting about the history of the places/ areas we were passing which is also something you don't get if you book an overpriced ticket to Hoedspruit/Nelspruit that gets you ‘closer' to the park, at least you get to see the beautiful landscapes. I have already recommended Ashtons to friends and travelers I've met along the way and would definitely travel with them again! Very reliable company! - Linda Bolettini


Good journey from ORTambo. Driver was professional and friendly. Introduced himself. We had two stops as planned. Seats were comfortable. We arrived on time to our destination. Will certainly use this service again. - Marie O’Mahony


Best service ever. Right on time. Clean. Best drivers. Great value. It is the right thing to do. - Luciana Pinto
