          Fantastic memories
          We have been on a 4 nights 5 days Kruger Tour in November with these guys. It was breathtaking amazing! The guides are highly experienced for years and really know what they are doing. Every single game drive (and it was for hours a day) was filled with excellent sightings and we felt like beeing part of the family. It was always fun and also interesting with all those facts they know about wildlife and nature. Thank you so much for the best moments we will never forget. I highly recommend Buyela e-Africa and we will book our future tours at Buyela e-Africa for sure, whenever we will return to South-Africa.

          An Amazing Day Trip!
          I was pleasantly surprised with our experience. From the pick up at our hotel to the drop off, our guide was great. We didn’t get to see the Big 5, but we did get an in-depth guided tour. Our guide went out of his way to make sure we saw as many animals as possible. At one point we felt like we were on the Discovery channel. We even got to hang out with zebras while eating lunch! I still can’t believe how good our experience was after booking this Safari at the last minute!
