        Horrible due to traffic leaving the venue. A truly pathetic effort.
        Leaving is an absolute nightmare. Any good faith they build with a good concert will be lost while you wait two hours+ to leave.

        Worth the money
        It was such a great day. We had Roy as our guide. He took time to tell us about the animals as we were taking pictures. He always asked if we were ready to leave before leaving a spot. While they can't guarantee seeing anything, he was able to guide us to see the big 5 plus giraffes, hippos, zebras, kudus, crocodiles, and lots of animals from the antelope family. It was such an amazing day! Well worth the money. I would book with them again. Thanks Roy!

        Incredible day in Kruger
        We’ve had a spectacular day in Kruger, everything about it was perfect. We saw; leopard, lion, buffalo, elephant, zebra, impala, hippo, hammerkop, crocodile, tortoise, Batteleur eagle, giraffe, warthog, steenbok, yellow-billed southern hornbill, saddle billed stork and many more. Roy, our guide, was very knowledgeable and charming, great company for the day. He ended the day by giving us the wonderful story about the Buffalo thorn. I thoroughly recommend this company.

        An amazing 5 day and 4 night stay at the campsite in Pretoriaskop!!
        Have just returned from an absolutely magical 5 day safari with Mbombela Tours. I cannot emphasise how amazingly we were looked after by Muzi and Mylord!!!! Our pick up from Hazy View was so easy as Muzi was already there waiting for us. He then entertained us all the way to Pretoriuskop with lots of tips and tales about game viewing. The camp was lovely! Only 6 tents tucked away in a corner of Pretoriuskop near to the ablution block. The tents were larger than expected and there was plenty of room under the bed and at the bottom of the bed for luggage. We were entertained daily by Cape starlings, crested barbets, a crested Francolin, a Karrachine thrush, tree squirrels and a dwarf mongoose. For our first game drive, we were treated to an evening drive with the Sancamp guides’ manager, Pat. It was incredible! Although it was pouring with rain, we found elephant, a puff adder, lions, a hyena and even a chameleon in the dark!!! We were greeted back at camp by Muzi with a candlelit dinner comprising chicken casserole, potatoes, a wealth of different vegetables and a salad. Every night we were also presented with a lovely bottle of wine and a large bottle of water. He also put the electric blankets on for us as we were cold and damp after our trip in the rain! Because of the rain, the lanterns and the fire pit couldn’t be lit but the electric blanket and the gorgeous meal made up for that! Muzi can cook!!! The next morning tea, coffee and rusks were provided for us from 5.30am and we got to meet our guide for the next four and a half days, Mylord, the master of collective nouns! We learned about towers of giraffes, bloats of hippos and crushes of rhino during our stay! Every day we went somewhere different and we easily found the big 4 (only the leopard eluded us but we saw the results of a leopard kill.). We fell in love with the Ugly 5, particularly hyenas, and we even made inroads into seeing the small 5! Breakfast was either a delicious continental breakfast or a cooked breakfast, followed by a delicious dinner on our return. We even had a BBQ on one night. Muzi and Mylord couldn’t have worked harder to make our stay better. I can thoroughly recommend Mbombela Tours and we will definitely be back!!! Thanks, guys!!!!

        A wonderful day in Kruger Park
        We made an awesome one-day trip in the part of Kruger Park (we entered at Fabeni Gates and went out through the Crocodile Gates). Our driver, Sifiso, is a real master! He let us see a lot of animals. Among those we met two pretty aggressive elephants, who came out to a road, ate marula and didn't let the cars pass by. Sifiso was a hero, he came near to the elephant and when the elephant started threatening us, he acted as a big animal, who isn't afraid of the elephant, roared at him with the engine and made the elephant run away. It was pretty scary, but very exciting!

        Good transportation service
        I booked a transfer from our hotel in White River to Sabie where we were doing a rafting trip down the river. Unfortunately they were late in showing up but we were able to move things around and it all worked out. Once they arrived, the vehicle was new and clean. Our driver, Muzi, was super helpful and great to talk to. He ended up coming on the rafting trip with us and recommended a great spot for dinner in Hazyview before taking us back to the hotel. If you book a few weeks in advance like I did, I'd recommend sending a message on WhatsApp the day before to confirm pickup times and places.

        Very bad service and people are very rude!
        Very bad service. Booked 2 full day safaris to Kruger with a pick up from our hotel, because we do not have our own car with us. We chose Mbombela Experience Tours and Safaris because they picked us up from our hotel. Later we simply receive an email that we have to organize our own transport to Nelspruit to join the safari. When we indicated that we had booked with a pick-up from our hotel, our booking was simply cancelled. Very unprofessional and rude. Be warned about this company!

        Mbombela experience tours and safaris served well with a smile
        Mbombela experience tours & safaris has served us with nothing short of a great service. They served with a smile and consideration. We will definitely book game drives through them always, whenever we are in KNP.

        The Best Safari Experience!
        I did the 2days/1 night camping, Blyde Canyon & Kruger safari with Mbombela Tours in June, & I must say, it is by far one of the best safari experiences I’ve had. Netto, the co-owner of Mbombela Tours, along with my guides Muzi & Trevor made my safari experience one to remember. On my first day, I did the Blyde Canyon & Panorama Route tour with Netto as my driver/guide. It was such a beautiful drive to some of the most scenic places in South Africa. After my Panorama Route tour, I was dropped off inside Kruger NP for my overnight stay at Mbombela’s tented camp. Because it is camping, you can’t expect anything luxurious, but honestly, it was beyond what I expected. The tent I stayed in was spacious, with a comfy bed, as well as an electric blanket for the cold winter nights in the national park. Muzi showed me around camp, took care of me, & made sure I had everything I needed for a comfy stay. He is so personable & friendly, and it was a joy chatting with him during my stay. The next day, I did a full day game drive in Kruger with Trevor as my driver/guide, with Muzi joining us. Trevor is also very personable & is super knowledgeable about the park & the wildlife that I learned so much from him in just one day. For me, an excellent safari experience isn’t just about seeing as much wildlife as possible, but also how the guides interact with their guests. And my safari experience with Mbombela Tours was exceptional. I only wish I stayed longer, but nonetheless, I do hope to come back again & bring more people with me to experience an enjoyable safari with professional, knowledgeable, fun, & overall superb guides.

        Fantastic panorama tour
        Did the full day Blyde canyon with Mbombela experience tours and safaris. Usually don’t leave reviews. But had read them on this company and its guide, Dominic. They raved about him, and I must agree, a wealth of knowledge, punctual, pleasant and easy going. We came to this part of South Africa to see the canyon, glad we did, glad we had Dominic for the day.

      My husband and I booked the overnight tour to Kruger with Mbombela. The entire tour, from the hotel pick-up, to the accomodation, the safari drives and the drop-off went smoothly and we had a fantastic time. All staff were really friendly and provided us with a memorable experience! We look forward to our next tour with Mbombela, when we return to South Africa. A bit thank you to Netto and team!

      We don't usually make organized Tours, but this one was really fantastic! We booked the two-day Safari and the Panorama Tour as a day trip, it was amazing from Start to Finish. Nito, our Guide, was fun and at the same time very professional, organized and punctual.
      These Tours were definitely our Highlights during our Journey in South Africa!
      The lovely Tour around the Kruger, the private Dinner and Breakfast in the Bush just for us, the night in a very comfortable Lodge and last but not least we saw the Big Five. Everything on the whole Trip was wonderfully organized and our guide Nito was amazing.
      All in all the tour was really above our Expectations and we will highly recommend it to our friends and relatives.

      Our experience with Mbombela Experiences was simply fantastic. The team offered us an unforgettable safari experience in the Kruger National Park. Although we were the only two participants, the tour went ahead in full. Our tour guide Sfisto was not only funny and motivated, but also attentive and knowledgeable. The tents in the camp were exactly as pictured - comfortable, spacious and clean. During the sunset and full-day tours we were able to admire numerous animals and Sfisto did his best to impart a wealth of knowledge to us. After 1.5 unforgettable days we were safely brought back to our hotel. All in all a 10/10 rating - this tour is highly recommended.

      The safari almost took place in a bus. That was disappointing.

      Accommodation in tents was very good and well equipped. For dinner there was a buffet next to the tents and the grill was also lit.

      The "morning" safari could have started as planned at 5:30 a.m. and not at 6:00 a.m. The earlier, the higher the chance of seeing animals.

      Overall, the driver could have kept a closer eye out for animals - we spotted most of them ourselves.

      Thank you for your review and we so very apologetic that you didn't have a great experience. Please note that we do the best to provide excellent service and create positive memories to our guests. Our game drives are never done in a minibus, since we have a fleet of open safari vehicle driven by trained guides. We mostly work with our guest to help our driver-guide with animal sightings since he seats lower that the guests in the vehicle and you could see further in the bush. the guide was delayed by other guests who were part of the tour which caused a delay on start time.
