        Lucky to have Lucky 🙂
        The south African trip was fabulous. What made it special and comfortable was our guide Lucky Banda. He was so informative, paid great attention to our needs, and was a wonderful person. I felt in good hands. I would recommend him to anyone.

        Wonderful and very meaningful experience
        The guide assigned to us was phenomenal! Lucky ( his guide name) was not only informative but made sure we had the experiences we wanted. Lucky reads people very well in order to make sure they are getting the experiences they want. He has a good sense of humor and tremendous knowledge of South Africa and every animal we experienced. His knowledge of South Africa (SA) is particularly impressive because he is not from SA. Lucky is personable and genuinely cares about his client’s experience. I highly recommend Lucky as a guide in SA.

        South Africa private tour
        Great trip to South Africa with a group of 4. We had a private tour with Lucky from Buya Buya as our guide who made our first week in South Africa an absolute delight.

        We just got back from South Africa and had Lucky from Buya Buya as our travel guide. He is wonderful. Full of knowledge. He explained to us and took us to great places while we were there. I would recommend you ask for Lucky as your tour guide.

        Panorama tour
        Yesterday, we took the Panorama tour and explored the beautiful countryside. Our guide, Patrick, was extremely knowledgeable and made this tour fun and extremely interesting. We saw the Blyde River Canyon, the amazing Bourke luck potholes and Lisbon Falls. If you’re in the area doing safari game drives, we can’t recommend this tour enough - to give you an essence of the magnitude and the beauty of the surrounding landscape, as well as the region’s culture.

        Sam the Man
        Where do we begin? Sam is the man. This guy goes above and beyond. As a former safari tracker turned driver, Sam provided more than just your standard ride from the Hoedspruit airport to the safari lodge. We learned so much about the wildlife before even getting to our Safari. We shared laughs & stories, overall he’s just a great human. We were lucky enough for him to have him drive us both to and from the airport. Both drives were safe, smooth and timely. Thank you Sam for going above and beyond!

        Professional transfers
        I have used Buya Buya a number of times for transfers from Eastgate Airport in Hoedspruit. They are punctual & the guides are always professional, courteous & extremely knowledgeable of the area. They are a great source of information & are able to answer questions & impart knowledge along the way. They make the anticipation of the safari even more enjoyable.

        Great Panorama Route tour with Buya Buya
        We booked a tour with Buya Buya to visit the Panorama Route through the lodge we were staying in. The tour was basically a private 8-hours drive through the highlights of the Panorama Route. Our driver, Percy, was fantastic in sharing the main information on the various spots where we stopped, but more than that we really enjoyed his company and the conversations we had with him in the car and during lunch. We learnt a lot about South Africa and shared knowledge about each other’s cultures, which (for me) really adds up to the whole experience, comparing to doing the route autonomously. Thanks for the great tour Percy (and the nice lunch place!). Can really recommend this company :)

I truly have a great time travelling with Buya-Buya travel to South Africa for the amazing Africa safari experience. Definitely will join them again in the future.

        Stress Free Transfers Thanks to Buya Buya Tours.
        I'd highly recommend Buya Buya Tours. We were a group of 6 and did 3 transfers with them, all of which went exceptionally smoothly thanks to Evans our driver. He was always punctual, neatly dressed, friendly and helpful. He settled us in with some welcome cold, bottled water. The van was spotlessly clean and in good condition. His driving was excellent, which I was happy about as I'm a nervous passenger. He also went out of his way when we made a special request. He was careful driving by the wild animals on the road, such as elephant walking right in front of us and also took the time to slow so that we could take a look. It was our friend's first experience of wild game so that was very much appreciated and exciting.

      We had the most fantastic time on the Panorama Route tour with Patrick from Buya Buya! The scenery was absolutely beautiful and Patrick had so much interesting knowledge of the land and the people of the areas that we visited. Patrick picked us up from our accomodation in Hoedspruit and together we went to the Three Rondavels, Bourkes Luck Potholes, Lisbon Falls and Gods Window - all were stunning! We stopped for a delicious lunch together at Harries Pancakes in Graskop before making the journey back to our accommodation. It was a brilliant way to spend the last day of our South Africa trip - full of fun and laughs with Patrick. 100% recommend - Thank you so much!

      We reached out to Buya Buya to inquire about arranging a private Panorama Tour. Candi was prompt and clear in her response. With a couple of email exchanges we had set up the tour. We also arranged for a local transfer thru them.

      The Panorama tour itself was good. Nick was nice and friendly. The vehicle was clean and comfortable. I would definitely recommend these folks to other.

      We spent an amazing day today with Percy from Buya Buya tours.

      Not only did we get to experience breathtaking views from the five key locations on the tour, but we were also provided relevant and knowledgeable information from Percy along the way.

      Clearly a company and individual that care about their customers and have a passion for this amazing part of the world.

      We booked a last minute trip to Hoedspruit from Johannesburg and our trip wouldn't have been the best trip of our lives if it wasn't for Buya Buya Travel and Tours! Candi was very helpful with suggestions and quick to respond to any emails regarding all last minute plans! Our trip included 1 night stay at Call of the Wild Lodge, 2 nights stay in Sausage Tree Safari Camp, and the Panoramic Tour from Hoedspruit back to Johannesburg! Nick transported us to both the lodge and the safari camp and Lucky drove us to Johannesburg via Panoramic route! They were both very reliable, helpful and a pleasure to meet! Thank-you for everything! We will definitely use Buya Buya Travel and Tours on our next trip!

      We used Buya Buya for our tour of the Panorama Route and to travel to and from Sabi Sands. I cannot say enough good things about our experience with Percy, who we had the pleasure of having guide us on each occasion. Percy's breath of knowledge of the Panorama Route, including lesser-known facts on its history, was amazing to hear and see. We especially enjoyed that he taught us all about his culture and background and openly answered any questions we had. We really enjoyed our time in Hoedspruit in part because Percy's great attitude and continuous hospitality. I highly recommend using Buya Buya for a Panorama Route Tour or just general travel in the area. Thanks Percy!

      We booked a panorama tour with Buya Buya and everything from the communications to the tour itself were excellent. Percy was our tour guide and he was so knowledgeable, professional, had a great attitude, and made for an awesome experience. We told him our priorities and things we wanted to see and he went out of his way to make it happen! We also liked that Nick was prompt in answering all of our questions in regards to the booking and was very easy to communicate with via email with quick response times. I highly recommend booking your tour with them as it did not disappoint!!
