Booking with KDR Travel and Tours

KDR Travel and tours was started in 2001 with the rather unwieldy name of KDR Sports and Adventure Travel Pty Ltd aimed at the sports supporter tour industry and visiting sports team tours.
The business quickly grew from a "spare room office" doing Sports tours to have dedicated offices in Durban, Cape Town and Johannesburg that deal with all aspects of travel, both leisure and corporate.

In 2010 The company was internally split into different "Business Groups" with each group concentrating on a particular set of similar web sites, with some site sbeing run by long time KDR cosultants working from home

In 2015 the business changed again when all websites were taken over by the vastly experienced management team at Southern Routes and business was consolidated under "one roof".

Guided Tours, Mobile safari's, Escorted holidays and coach tours are often perceived as rigid and inflexible with groups being herded in and out of attractions. The reality, however, is very different and adventure seekers are starting to wake up to the benefits of escorted tours to Africa.
Gone also are the days of uncomfortable overland trucks with engines that have done one Trans Africa trip to many, the modern Mobile Safari can be as comfortable and luxurious as you want to make it, run by professional guides with support at hand any time it is needed

Escorted tours are starting to experience a renaissance, with increased demand for guided journeys in 2016 and 2017, says Julien P. Janssen, Head of Guided Journeys at Thompsons Africa.
