Our safari with Wildlife Safaris was a complete dream. Everything was well organized from the beginning to the end. The accommodation and food were always top. The food left nothing to be desired, from the small local snack to the South African steaks, everything was always very tasty and excellent. I especially want to mention that our guide was an absolutely pleasant person and we always had very fun and interesting conversations. And now for the most important thing, the animals 😊 We have had so many wonderful and breathtaking moments that will remain unforgettable forever. The early morning sunrises in the Kruger National Park alone are worth a trip 😊 the smell of the savannah in the morning, the roar of the lions in the evening that gives you goose bumps and the herds of elephants that pass by you are breathtaking. I could write page after page, but I think I was able to give everyone who was interested a good impression of South Africa and especially of wildlife safaris. WILDILFE SAFARIS WE WILL COME AGAIN <3

We were picked up by our tour guide Simon at the hotel Garden Court in JB on 5/3/2020. It was a roughly 4.5 hours drive to Kruger National Park. On the way Simon provided us a short history of the arrival of English and later Dutch in the 18 century in SA and the war between these two nationalities, the formation of apartheid regime with the segregation of whites, colors and blacks in all aspects of life and at last to the release of Nelson Mandela from imprisonment for 26 years. The 3 days and 2 nights tours and the services were excellent as Simon knows the Kruger National Park likes the back of his hand so that we were lucky to see the Big Four " Buffaloes, Elephants, Lions and Leopard. As we are now back to Germany we would like to thank to Simon excellent services.

We went on the 4 day classic kruger safari. Opted not to do the scenic version because wanted more time in park. The drive from Johannesburg was great (and scenic). Some people fly there but we really wanted to see the country side and other parts of South Africa so well worth the 5.5 hour. Our first night at the Sabbie river lodge was great - rooms were find, location amazing, food really good. Next two nights we stayed in Kruger so we didn't have to do the paperwork to get in which made it nice. The evening ride from the park rangers was just 'ok'. They went very fast so spotting anything was nearly impossible once it was dark. Our guide Nick was the best. Very knowledgable and fun to be with. I would recommend this tour to everyone. We went during the rainy season but were lucky with the weather. No rain the entire time. Issue is grass very tall, very lush so very pretty but can be hard to see animals but we got lucky and saw almost everything. If you go you will enjoy.

We had a great experience and would truly recommend the experience to all explorers who come to Kruger. And this is mainly because of the excellent guide- Hoppy! He is an exceptional guide and he made the whole difference. Hoppy is super friendly and attentive and deeply knowledgeable about the wildlife. Hoppy’s genuine passion for showing the best of Kruger, brings the experience to another level. This tour is best for everyone who truly wants to focus on seeing the animals, experiencing the nature and spending as much time as possible looking for the beauty of the wildlife! And Hoppy is the absolute best guide you can find for this purpose. The housing was ok, but this is not the tour you take to enjoy the lodges- this tour is for the true wildlife fans who want to grasp every moment of unique nature experiences!

Our party of 4 opted for a 4D3N Safari + Panorama Route with WS. Our guide, Liese, was really great - she was not only knowledgeable about the flora and fauna, but also about the grander history of South Africa. She is a true Safari veteran who can truly read the animals' body language really well, and we really feel her love and passion for the outdoors and animals. Throughout the trip, we also talked about some very interesting general topics and we are grateful for her honesty and willingness to share more beyond what is required. Unfortunately, we did not get to see the Big 5 - we missed the Leopard and Rhino (but we eventually saw Rhinos at a separate sanctuary in another town after the whole trip). It was a shame, but it was nobody's faults. One of the early morning (Feb 1), we had the game drive with SANParks departing from Satara Camp. It was a 3-hour ride and we saw nothing - that was a true waste of time. The guide/driver was so uninterested and made little attempt to speak with guests about animals - I could see all the disappointed and irritated faces at the end of the drive back in camp. Again, this was not Wildlife Safaris fault at all, but we felt that SANParks guides have very little need/interest to please you (should you opt for them).
