        We enter the Kruger National Park once the gates are open then go on to explore the Park on the lookout for lions, majestic herds of elephants, a solitary leopard lying in a shady tree, the amazing rhino, and herds of buffalo, as well as a multitude of other wild animals and birds, like hornbills, eagles, hippo, zebra, giraffe, not forgetting the abundance of buck, like impala & kudu.

        The experience was worth every cent!
        We had such an incredible time! We did a full-day game drive with Kurt Safari, but we already saw many animals (and three and half out of the Big Five – and a half because we saw a dead buffalo that was killed by lions the previous night) during the first two hours of the drive! I know safaris are a game of luck, being at the right place at the right time, but we were really lucky we had such a fruitful day. We only saw four out of the Big Five total as rhinos were pretty elusive, but the other animals we saw more than made up for it. Major props to our guide Fortune, I mean we probably got lucky because of him! He was punctual and picked us up at our hotel. He took really good care of us. He was friendly, great at spotting the animals, knowledgeable, answered all the questions we had. Also he really tried his best to find all of the Big Five for us down to the last minute of the tour, which we really appreciate! It was hella cold in the morning and we were so relieved that they provided blankets for us as well. Highly recommend booking a safari with Kurt Safari, it was cheaper as well than having to book through our hotel. And the best thing of all, it was private just for our little group! We all came home with full & happy hearts :)

        Incredible safari experience
        My family booked 2 full day safaris and we loved every moment of it. We saw so many animals and were in awe of their proximity to us. Our tour guide Amos was super fun and knew how to wait for the right moment to catch the animals. He had such a sharp eye and spotted the animals from a distance before any of us. On this trip, we saw elephants, lions, tigers, rhinos, giraffes, hippos etc. we loved our time there and we loved our guide Amos!

        An amazing trip in krugar park with Amos our guide!!
        Amos our guide was fantastic! He would keep a look out for all the animals and always adjust the jeep according to the best view of the animal 😃 We learnt so many fun facts about animals such as their name, their genders, what they prey on etc. We were worried we couldn’t find all the animals but we did end up finding the big 5: Elephant, Rhino, Leopard (eating its prey in a tree), Giraffe, Hippo! Among many other animals like wildebeest, lions, zebra, hyeena, pumbas and so much more. It was truly a worthwhile experience with yummy food at every rest stop. The guides even provided blankets and water. We danced our way back singing songs together with our guide who was cheerful and encouraged us whenever we found animals! Thank you Amos, we will miss you!!

        Fantastic and we achieved what the purpose of coming to Safari here.
        The guide Fortune was very very experienced so much so that we managed to see all the important animals like rhino, lion, leapord, elephant, hippo n many more. Fortune managed to show us the animals crossing the road in front of our vehicle. We used his service for 2 days. He also shared many stories with us about the animals. He is also a joker n we had a lot of fun. Would definitely recommend Kurt Company n our guide to friends. We used 2 vans one driven by Fortune for the older folks n the other driven by Amos for our adult teenagers.o

        A trip made great by a fantastic guide.
        I cannot stress enough how incredible our experience was. Our guide Vusi was the most patient, cheerful, and well rounded man I have met in this country. He drove us safely from Joburg to the Umbhaba Eco Lodge showing us amazing views along the way. We did a full day safari and a half day with him, both were amazing and he made them each very special. We got to see the big 5 on both days which is very uncommon and the photos we were able to capture because of Vusi's great maneuvering skills in the safari vehicle were breathtaking. We had a safe trip back to Joburg as well. I truly appreciate the lovely experience Vusi and Kurt safari have given my family and I and highly recommend their services.

        Experience of a Lifetime
        Chirs and Dickson were wonderful guides. They were knowledgeable and worked hard to help us see everything we could. It was obvious they were invested in giving us the best experience possible. Our two groups saw all the "Big Five" plus lots of other wildlife. The vehicles were comfortable, and we felt very safe. Several on our tour noted that our days on safari were some of the best days of their lives. I would highly recommend this company.

        Animals Everywhere
        Sthembile was an outstanding guide! We saw almost every animal (except rhino), including leopard and a cheetah eating its fresh kill right by the road! Tons of elephants, giraffes, zebra, buffalo, the list goes on. Wonderful day and Sthembiles knowledge seemed endless. She made it worth it for us to travel halfway across the world to see the animals!

        Masilo, the Best one !
        We started off very early in the morning. Masilo ( even though we called him the whole time “Marcelo”) was amazing, explaining us everything, making extra stops so we can take a great photo/ video! He even skipped our lunch break as soon as he heard about a sighting of lions -(there’s always time to eat later, but the lions don’t wait for us!) We were the first ones to get to the lions - the other groups followed suit. We did get our lunch break after that, all in all, would take the tour again, specially with Masilo!

        A must-see.
        Our guide, Masilo, worked so hard to maximize our chances of seeing the Big Five. We were so lucky to see them all! Our group thoroughly enjoyed the full day experience. Not to be missed.

        We enjoyed 2 day tours in the park. Our driver Sammy-M was great. There could be no better one for guiding. On both days we saw all big fice + many more animals. It was worth every cent we spent.

        Amazing 2 full day safari with Kurt safari!
        We went with an organised tour on a 2 full day safari with Kurt safari. Our guide was 'Happy' and he was a very nice joyful ranger who knew everything about all the animals and vegetation. Of course the passengers should be on the lookout for animals as well, but Happy mostly always spotted them crazy fast en took us there. Thanks to him we even got to see 2 leopards (1 each day, you have to be lucky but we wouldn't have seen them outselves). Highly recommend!

        Very memorable safari tour with Fortune and Kurt safari
        We had an excellent 2 nights 3 days safari tours with Kurt Safari. The initial preparation with Crista through whatsapp was very smooth and informative. We were very fortunate to have Fortune as our safari guide. He was very knowledgeable and attentive. Within 2 days, we have seen all the big 5 and on the 3rd day, even managed to see a pair of cheetah by the roadside . He gave us ample time to observe and take pictures of the animals . The Eco-resort was clean and comfortable . The nightly buffet was delicious too . I would likely recommend this safari tour company and excellent guide Fortune. I will definitely choose them again if I decide to return to Kruger park safari.

      Chris S was a great guide, very active in the experience not just driving around passively but telling us about the animals and very determined to find lions on our 6 hour morning Safari together. We saw a lot of animals (lions in the last half hour!) and had a great time :)

      Today we went on a morning safari tour with Enock. He was fantastic. Very informative and we got to see everything we wished for and more. He knew how everyone wanted to see Rhinos and went all out to try and fullfil our desires. Amazingly he managed it and even though it meant he had to drive an extra hour to facilitate this he did it willingly. Thanks for and unforgettable memory. We will certainly recommend it and your company based on our experience today.

      We did two safaris with Amos from Kurt Safari’s. The first day we started with a morning safari, following with a afternoon safari the next day. We had the best experience thanks to our guide, driver and friend, Amos! His passion for the park, the animals and its wilderness is ummatched. Due to his experience, we were able to see amazing animals and a couple of lion cubs. They really were playful, amazing experience to see them in the wild. The safari’s were amazing and we will come back for sure. We highly recommend this safari and especially booking it with Amos, since his experience and passion will definetely make your safari a memory forever.

      Everyone should do a tour with a guide like Sammy (Mqile). Sammy is a very knowledgeable guide who clearly enjoys his job and it came through with his interaction with us. Sammy genuinely wanted us to have a great day and a great day was had! Managed to see lions, elephants, hippos, wildebeest, buffalo, zebras, giraffes among other numerous animals.

      We had two days of private safari (group of 8 people) with our guide Enock and it was simply amazing. Enock provided us with lots of background information on all the animals and was very engaged to give us a perfect safari experience . We had multiple sithings of all of the big five because of Enocks know-how, connections and engagement.
      We were blessed and lucky.
      Thank you for the wonderful experience.

      Amos was our ranger and did an excellent job at finding as many of the big five (and other rare animals) on our morning drive whilst providing us with interesting infos about the fauna and flora of Kruger. Amos made sure we were as warm as possible with enough blankets during the drive as it was a cold and windy April morning. Amos was also very witty and engaged during the entire drive. I would definitely recommend this company and ranger for a game drive.

      Great experience. The morning was going to be dull, with no big animals visible. And thanks to the eye and the persistence of Chris, our guide, who asked all the cars for information on the location of the animals, we ended the safari with 4 of the Big5! Unforgettable.

      We stayed at the Kruger Gate Hotel, and Elvis picked us up from there. We did both the sunrise drive and the afternoon drive. Both were amazing. Elvis was happy to share his knowledge with us when we asked questions, but he didn't talk the whole time, which is nice. You want to be able to take in the beauty in silence sometimes. He had water bottles for us in the truck, and that was nice. I would recommend bringing your own binoculars so you can see the animals more closely.

      My best friend and I had a great time on our five day safari with Kurt Safari. The accommodation was nice and clean with good food. The best part of our trip was our Safari guide Abraham Mat. He was very knowledgeable and knew where to drive. We were able to see the big 5 in ONE day! We also saw the ugly five. He drove and manoeuvred the vehicle like a champ so we could get the perfect view/photos. Great sense of humour and just a great guy to be around. Personable and answered all of our questions. Christa was also a great help and easy to contact/connect with over the phone or through WhatsApp. We made a last minute accommodation change to stay in Kruger park and do a walking tour/bush walk. They were able to accommodate and help us organize the rides. Great service and a great staff, highly recommend! A big thank you from two happy Canadians! Jake & David :)
