Old Vic Traveller's Inn is the ideal place to have as a base for exploring Kruger and the surrounding area. The Inn is clean, relaxing, quiet, safe, very reasonably priced, and very comfortable. Plus: FREE WIFI -- the best connection I found in S. Africa! Owners Dave and Bella are very hands on in the day to day running of...

I have been emailing crazy Dave before my trip down in mid May and he has been extremely helpful and patient at my requests. During our arrival at old vic, it was total darkness due to the load shedding but we were greeted by warm and friendly staff. The guide Dave Loval who has accompanied us to Kruger is extremely...

We had a group of young people stay here and it was the perfect place for them to relax and enjoy the hospitality of "Crazy Dave" and his staff. Really comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Ask about him setting up a safari to Kruger National Park. Our guide, Marc, gave us one of the best and most informative tour where we...

On arrival there were no lights outside, it was dark and the gate was locked. Could not get any assistance yet it was around 21h00. I therefore had to look for an alternative accommodation to spend the night

At old vic's you suddenly feel so welcome and as if you've been there before. The staff makes you feel like you are apart of the family. They are all so nice and make sure you have everything you need all the time. You feel very safe because they keep gate closed at all times and will open it for...

Crazy Dave hooked us up! He has incredible connections all over Nelspruit for transport, activities, safaris and other adventures. Dave is like a dad for all of the weary travelers who happen underneath his roof. I would strongly reccomend this hostel for anyone looking for a restful home base in Nelspruit, but are also looking for community and adventure.

You must check this place out when you go to Nelspruit. It's an incredibly cozy atmosphere with many areas to hide from your friends. Dave and Bella are some of the most caring/beautiful people you will ever meet.

Bella and Dave are great. The place is wonderful and we were cared for well. Their driver Ben is also very accommodating and super nice if you don't have your own transportation. This is one of the coolest inns I've stayed at. Would absolutely come back.

Nelspruit itself is not a place I would recommend stopping, but it is convenient if you are headed into Kruger. Vic's was a comfortable enough place with secure parking, a good bar and convenient location to local food and park information. We had a room away from the crowd (and the bar), which I would recommend. The staff (in particular...
