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.

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

Can highly recommend Ashtons for a stressfree, pleasant and safe journey! Have used this service three times in the past 6 weeks and am very impressed. The drivers were commendable in every way. Punctual, friendly and accommodating, taking all our immediate needs into consideration. (Phone calls to Lodges to advise our arrival time, and even getting to the airport earlier for those who booked their flights without adequate leeway!) I am a travel Agent in Austria and will definitely continue to book these services for my guests and of course for myself. My special thanks to Chris, Hannes and Johann for their kindness. - Charmaine Barvitius


Was great trip thanks - will recommend to friends and family. - Jason Wessels


Firstly the booking staff online & telephonically were professional and very accommodating as I had to change our return date (at no extra cost). Their response to emails during working hours were almost instant. The experience from OR on 22 June and from Skukuza on 10 July was awesome. Both drivers were friendly, drove well. Not once was I stressed about their driving skills. They kept us informed when on our stops and how much longer it would take to get to our journey. The bottled water was a small but lovely gesture as well. I have already recommended the excellent service to friends and family. Thank you Ashtons for making our trip memorable. Kind Regards Carmolita - Carmolita Josephs


I had a pleasant trip as per usual with Ashtons. In fact , I will be doing the return leg from OR Tambo to Skukuza in two days time. The service is on time, reliable, and friendly. Well done and thank you! - Nicholas Mannion


We found this shuttle service om Johannesburg airport to Kruger National Park excellent! We highly recommend it! - Marilyn Brown
