The History of Old Vic Travellers – Home From Home
Twelve years of passion and devotion have created the absolute ultimate home away from home when you in the company of Dave & Bella in the comfort of Old Vic Travellers. Be it a sundowner on the sundeck overlooking the nature reserve. Or a splash in the pool after a day in the wilderness of Kruger or exploring the local sights that abound us. Nothing completes your adventurous day better than a home cooked meal. Then off to a fitful nights sleep in either, one of the comfortable en-suite rooms, a self-catering cottage that snuggles perfectly into the garden or a bed in the en-suite dorm, the choice, although tough is totally yours!
Old Vic Travellers is situated in the quaint, leafy upbeat city of Nelspruit, Mpumalanga in South Africa. Nelspruit is ideally positioned allowing easy and affordable access to Kruger National Park, beautiful Swaziland and the inviting vibrant sea's of Mozambique. Kruger National Park is 60 kms from Old Vic, a mere stone's throw as one is transformed from city life to the dusty roads, thick bush, the Big Five and many more creatures that make Kruger National Park an unforgettable experience.
Nelspruit boasts the worlds oldest caves; the Sudwala Caves, and the absolutely breath taking God's window and Blyde River Canyon to mention a few. Nelspruit boasts it all. A true gem which we are proud to share with all our guests and what we gladly refer to as our home. We have over the last ten years established our Tour company, Kruger Flex Tours which we are really passionate about. Every tour we are proud to load up our valued guests and share our glorious city, Kruger National Park and surrounds as well as our two neighbouring countries Mozambique and Swaziland. Truly the best of all worlds!
In between our tours and ensuring our guests are enjoying their stay at our “Home away from home” back packers Old Vic Travellers. We are honoured to be passionately involved with supporting one of our local orphanages. Over many years we have established a true bond with Betty and her kids. Betty started Betty's Haven and from her early days we have been right beside Betty and her awesome kids. Helping and supporting in every way we can. We are extremely excited at the idea of our guests that have enquired and happily been volunteers for a period at Betty's whilst visiting our city. We encourage this life changing experience.
An extremely popular option for many of our volunteers is partaking in one of the options below. Whilst working as a volunteer at the orphanage and residing at the back packers.
