        If you are really interested in the Krueger National Park, there is only one option: you have to meet Andrew.
        If you are really interested in the fauna and flora of Krueger National Park, there is only one option: you have to meet Andrew. Andrew has an incredible knowledge of one of the largest biosphere reserves in the world. There is hardly any other place on earth where you can encounter such a biodiversity in the same area and Andrew knows it all. We had incredible discoveries that I will never forget, and I learned a lot from him for which I'm deeply grateful.

        Truly Magical!
        In November 2023 I went on a tour in Kruger with Andrew. I was extremely impressed not only with his knowledge of the park and its denizens - not only birds but flora, other fauna, its history & geography but his connection with it all. A regular visitor to the park since he was a lad and he knows it by heart, in his heart and in his bones. He delivers it all in a delightful package of humor, fun, gravitas (where appropriate) and service. Where else do you get your morning coffee fresh-made off the back of the vehicle while discussing the day’s plans. We saw 200+ birds and lots of other creatures in 4 days - his bird calls are incredible and he can even call in a Crocodile! After a tour with Andrew you leave Kruger wondering if you will ever be in such a magical place again. Then you start thinking about how to get back there.

        Wonderful Kruger Tour
        Andrew is an exceptional birding guide. We spent five days enjoying the birds that we saw. His ability to call in birds is very impressive. But his overall knowledge of Kruger’s flora and fauna made the tour special. He is a very good tour guide. I highly recommend him to anyone want to experience Kruger National Park

        You simply won't get better
        I very seldom write reviews - but this was one of the best 6 hours I have spent in a long while. I have been on plenty of Safari's, almost all with lovely local people with incredible eye sight.....but Andrew takes this to a whole different level. The man is a walking, talking encyclopaedia who brings every subject to life - be it the extraordinary geology, the amazing flora, the extraordinary array of birds and, of course, the fauna i.e. the animals I assume most on Safari crave to see - and with that you get a similarly detailed account of every aspect of the animals life. In short Andrew turned what I expected to be 6 hours just hoping around the next corner there would be, for example, a lion into the most fascinating 6 hours imaginable. Add to the same that Andrew is a true delight, with a great humour and complete passions and I can pretty much guarantee you won't enjoy a safari with anyone as much as with this true Gentleman. Thank you Sir! Nick

        Amazing experience with Andrew
        What an incredible experience, Andrew is super knowledgeable in such a wide range of fields including fauna and flora as well as history and geology. Felt like my brain was going to explode by the end of the day, it was fantastic, the best way to explore the Kruger, even as a South African! Andrew has a wicked sense of humour as a cherry on top, so in addition to the overload of information there was an abundance of laughter as well. Many thanks to Andrew for an unforgettable experience!

        Kruger Safari Done Right With Safaria!
        Andrew organized our first safari (ever) in Kruger National Park and it was an incredible experience. Our tour guide for the 4 night, 3 day trip was excellent - highly knowledgeable, passionate and fantastic personality. We learned so much (history, wildlife, floral and fauna) and saw so much - our minds are blown. Would call on Andrew again for any future safaris in this region.

        Amazing Day
        My family recently did a full day Safari with Andrew and it could not have been a better day. Andrew is enthusiastic and incredibly knowledgeable and never seemed to tire of answering our questions about the animals or the park itself. If we had more time, we would have loved to do another day with Andrew as I cannot possibly imagine another guide doing a better job.

        Trip of a Lifetime
        My friends and I did a custom safari tour with Andrew in April 2023 and it was epic. From our first meeting at the airport to our last goodbye Andrew was full of positive energy and enthusiasm. His passion for his job, the park and the animals that inhabit it is honestly inspiring. Everything was super well organised with enough downtime to relax and enjoy the hotel. Andrew expertly fielded questions on mating rituals, possible Lion King plot issues, Megan, Harry & Prince Andrew and the patriarchy. Impressive. I honestly couldn't recommend Andrew more highly - our safaria with him was the trip of a lifetime

        2nd Year Fantastic Time
        Had a phenomenal time with Safaria last week in Kruger. This is our 2nd trip with them and it will not be the last. The family members that joined us this year had just as good a time as we did last year. Andrew is very knowledgeable on the animals and the park. He is very informative and a pleasure to be with. We spent a couple days in the Satara area with him then a couple more days in southern Kruger. If given the opportunity to spend some time with Safaria you will not regret it. Any questions let me know.

        4 Day Private Kruger Tour
        I recently spent 4 days in Kruger with Andy W, as a solo traveller, and can honestly say the whole experience was fantastic. Andy has passion and an intimate knowledge of the local ecology, making our tour much more than just sightseeing. It was a learning experience as well. He has an eye for spotting game others will miss enabling you to see things without the crowds at times, and maximising the personalised experience. In the limited time I had in the park he was able to tailor our trip to maximise viewing opportunities whilst maintaining a flexible approach based on my preferences.

        Transformational
        You know that saying, "spending time in nature is healing energy" - well that couldn't be more true for this experience. Andrew is not only a guide who is packed with the knowledge on the biodiversity at Kruger, but he is PASSIONATE about Kruger, and life and nature and humans! Thank You Andrew for not only making this a fun experience for my 3-year toddler-twins, but for also allowing me the time to process my own thoughts against the stunning backdrop of the Lowveld. Your professionalism and the ease it took us to get in and out of the park did not go unnoticed. To those Kruger novices out there, if you have kids under 5 and you're a little nervous about taking them on a game drive experience, trust me don't be, when you're with Andrew you're in safe hands - so go for it! Your kids will be talking about it for days after.

        Worderful Staff and Great Time
        We planned our trip to Africa more than 18 months in advance. We came across Safaria on TripAdvisor a so glad we did. Andrew was great in answering our many question and providing guidance as the trip neared. We got to experience our 4 days with them with 3 guides and all were fabulous. It was also great visiting/ hearing about their time in Kruger and other places in Africa. All of them tried their best to deliver what we wanted to see. Using their knowledge of the park/ land as well as noticing tracks when we got in those areas. Our experience was unbelievable over the 4 days and I know they nor any guide company can guarantee sightings, but we felt like both Hylton and Andrew both would have still delivered many if the animals did not cooperate as they did. Over the 4 days we saw 5 Rhinos, 7 Leopards, Cheetah, Buffalo, over 30 Lions including a complete pride and several feeding, tons of Ellies, tons of Giraffes, Hippos, Crocs, Kudu and on and on. Don't hold it against them if you aren't this lucky as when we shared many were shocked with the quantity seen. We are already talking about a future trip to Kruger and Andrew/ Safaria will definitely be involved in our trip. They were great!

        Memorable and inspiring
        Early this year, I took an incentive group to Kruger Shalati: The train on the bridge. Being an event producer, I always find it challenging to create a bespoke, one-of-a-kind experience that is different from the limited activities and excursions available in the Kruger National Park. My objective was to create an experience that correlated with my project narrative, create activities and excursions that has not been done before and ultimately deliver an experience that is memorable, unforgettable, and inspiring. We succeeded and the client LOVED IT! This would not have been possible without the guidance, handwork and dedication from the Safaria team. I would highly recommend Andrew and his team!

        Most inspiring Kruger Tour
        Absolutely amazing Safari experience. The private setup guarantees the best and most individual trip you can hope for. Rhe guide knows everything about every animal or plant in the park. Its clear that Kruger Park is his passion for life, by sharing it with his guests he creates a truly inspiring tour. The vehicle is very comfortable and spacious.

        Loved the Kruger Park!
        We recently took a 4-night trip to Berg-en-dal and Satara camps in the Kruger National park. The experience was wonderful. We were 2 families who travelled together and we shared a guest house in each camp. The accommodation was clean, well-serviced and kitted out. The camps are well-maintained and the staff friendly and professional. We also saw so much: Lions, rhinos, loads of elephants, buffalo, a huge pack of wild dogs with pups, and hyaenas with pups. A wonderful, local travel experience that is affordable and a great pleasure. Can highly recommend!

      My husband and I spend an amazing day with Andrew birding Kruger National Park. It was our first trip to South Africa, so there were a lot of new things to see. We ended up with more than 100 bird species, with bonus experiences with other mammals and wildlife. One non-bird highlight was seeing a group of 11 Rhino!!

      Andrew's knowledge of birds and all things Kruger National Park made our experience amazing and we can't wait to get back and go bird with him again!

      We booked 3 trips while in South Africa for 5 days as part of our honeymoon. We could not recommend Andrew highly enough - I've never met someone so knowledgeable and he truly loves his job!!! We had 2 safari trips as well as the Panaroma Route tour and learned so much in a short space of time. He took amazing photos of us and could not have been more accommodating! He is very friendly abd good fun!! HIGHLY recommend 👍👍

      We had the honor to be Andy’s guest! Seriously this guy knows what he is talking about.

      We found the trip through google. We booked and payed the amount in advance with a link provided to the credit card payment system. Pick up was arranged by Andy and the driver was on time. Smooth ride from Mbombela to Numbi Gate.

      We had amazing hours with Andy, his knowledge about the abundance of species is beyond words. An example, we went through the park and Andy stopped the vehicle because he heard something. He repeated the sound of the bird and got an answer. He pointed to a tree and there was an owl sitting in the treetop. No one would have ever seen the owl. It was amazing. Andy was constantly observing the surroundings and was looking for animals tracks and signs. We saw a lot and he explained a lot cuz we were so curious.

      He is clearly an exception.

      Thank you for sharing this great experience!

      Doing a full day private Safari was the absolutely highlight of our 2 week trip to SA. Andrew is an amazing guide, and has an unmatched knowledge of the park. He knew everything from bird calls to park history, to clearly everything about the wildlife. The day started our raining and he made sure we had blankets and ponchos, and were completely covered and comfortable. By 9am it was sunny and he could remove the covers and the vehicle was a blast to tour in! I wouldn't recommend any other guide in Kruger, and can't wait to do another Safari with Andrew soon!

      We had Nelly as our driver and guide who was most informative about all the wild life. We were in complete see if his ability to spot some of the smaller animals and birds whilst driving. He was extremely patient in searching for the animals and wanted us to have a memorable experience which we did. He belonged to the team of Kurt Safaris. Nelly had a wonderful sense of humour and kept us amused through out. We were so grateful to have him again for the next half day game drive.
