We had the most incredible time touring Swaziland with Bumhi Safaris! Tende and Ivana are two of the most inspiring people we have ever met. We learned so much from them and had an incredible game drive and rhino walking safari, and in addition it was such a joy to learn that a portion of the proceeds from Bumhi Safaris is contributed to Charuma Conservation Initiative, the non-profit they also manage. Tende and Ivana are doing amazing things to make a difference in conservation and community in Swaziland! We will never forget them and the amazing community of people we met at Shewula Mountain Camp, as well as the rhino walking safari they took us on! We were about 30 feet away from wild rhinos! The whole time I felt perfectly safe, but at the same time I wasn't exactly used to a 2.5 ton armour clad unicorn running at us! This was by far one of the most incredible wildlife experiences we've ever experienced and is a must do for anyone visiting Swaziland. We highly recommend Bumhi Safaris and hope we can visit Swaziland again someday soon!

After having now gone on multiple safaris I can say that Bumhi safaris was truly an unforgettable experience. Tense and Ivana are some of the nicest people you will ever meet and they truly went out of their way to make sure that our trip was as comfortable as possible. We did a 1 week safari in the Kgalagadi transfrontier Park. Tende is an excellent driver and we always felt safe in his car. We saw a wide variety of animals including the honey badger, cheetahs, giraffe and of course many lions. The Kalahari is a unique spot for safari as it is more off the beaten path as compared with more popular spots such as Kruger. Nonetheless the scenery was certainly unique and we were not disappointed with the animals we saw. Only small downside is that afternoons were very hot and we did not drive around too much in mid afternoon heat. The campsites we stayed in all had pools which was much necessary. Food was absolutely amazing. Tende and Ivana go out of their way to make excellent home style food that is fresh every day. They even somehow made fresh creme brûlée during the trip which was easily the best dessert I’ve ever had on Safari! They also provided wine/beer for the entire trip which was very welcome. Both of them have eagle eyes for spotting wildlife and we saw waaaay more animals than we would have doing a self drive. Overall Kgalgadi is definitely an area of South Africa worth visiting and I would choose nobody other than Bumhi to take you on your journey!

If you are looking for impeccably organized tailor-made holidays, then Bumhi Safaris is definitely what you need. Ivana and Tende, a charming couple behind Bumhi Safaris organized our stay in the Cape Town region. Well ahead of our trip, they inquired about our interests and sent a lot of useful information and suggestions. Once on the spot, everything was carefully planned and perfectly organized. There was a right balance between various activities, on one hand, and free time, on the other. Ivana and Tende were just great, very professional and very friendly. We really enjoyed their company. Tende is an extremely knowledgeable guide, visits to Cape Point or the Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden were a real crash course in the region's biodiversity. And he is also an excellent cook, he kept surprising us with his delicious meals. Wholehearted recommendation for Bumhi Safaris!

We would recommend to all lovers of nature to visit Kalahari. We were reading a lot about it, and what we can find there. But only when you put your feet in the red sand, you can realize what a gem is Kalahari. The animals, the nature, Bushmen tribes.. Wow wow wow! We went in late November when the ground was literally melting under your feet, but Bumhi team with their special treats (cold drinks, fresh fruits and snacks, etc) made us feel like we are staying in a 5 star hotel on 4 wheels. We spent 7 days in Kalahari, changing every few days the location / camp sites. Every spot had its own beauties and benefits. We were accompanied also with the bushman named Honeyboy who was giving us so many information about the flora and fauna in Kalahari. Every night, next to the fire, he was telling us fables. At the last day of Safari, we visited his village and his family, and they showed us their crafts and arts all made by their hands with the natural materials. Watching thirsty animals gathering around water springs and enjoying fresh water under the burning star is something that we will never forget. Also so many different kind of birds and Ivana and Tende knew all about them. Every evening Tende prepared us delecious meals, and Ivana made a lovely romantic setup for watching the stars and moon. We never saw Southern hemisphere constellations before,so Tende taught us so much about them. I was 7 month pregnant and I asked Ivana if she is willing to help me with some exercise and yoga. It was important for me to get stretched after all day game ride. Immediately she said yes! She was the best! Helped me a lot! Like I had a personal trainer. Every day doing yoga and watching sunset or sunrise, is something that I could only dream of. It was a lifetime trip and we owe huge Thank you to Bumhi Safaris team. It is not always about destination, but it's who you travel with that makes it special. In our case it was great combo! See you soon!
