Niel has taken me and my boyfriend to an unforgettable safari experience in Pilenesberg. Everything was perfectly planned and organised, from pick-up to the end. Niels is a great and talented guide, he has a deep knowledge of animals and nature and a great sense of humor. The safari was filled with many encounters, elephants, zebras, rhinos, lions, hyppos, etc. Niels explained us so much about animals behaviours and also generally about South Africa, all with humor and fun. Additionally Niel helped us planning and gave us priceless tips for the rest of our tour and every time we followed them, it was a great experience. Thank you Niel for making our holiday experience so great :)

We had a five-day tailor-made safari across the Kruger and we definitely had the adventure of a lifetime. Everything was perfectly organized. The accommodation was excellent. Niel Jacobs proved to be the most knowledgeable guide, always ready to answer even the most ridiculous questions. I learned much more about wildlife and South Africa than any school lesson could possibly provide. We managed to see four of the big five on our first day and by the end of the journey we had seen all of them as well as well as lots of other amazing species. In addition, our guide was an excellent cook and we had great evenings around the fire, star watching and distinguishing between the lion's roar and hippo's grunt. During the night safari which Niel had booked for us (which by all means was an incredible experience) I managed to make the difference between his professional guiding and that of other guides. So if you are looking for the best quality money can buy, Impi Safaris is the right choice! Thanks for sharing your passion for nature with us!

Over the years I have taken many of my overseas visitors to various safaris in South Africa. Impi Safaris have proven to be the best tour company I have come across so far. Everything was organized perfectly. Niel spoilt us with incredible meals. The accommodation was wonderful. Despite our late request Impi Safaris managed to insure that we stayed inside Kruger National Park. In our short Safary we witnessed amazing things. Many tourists would envy us. Niel Jacobs is by far the most knowledgeable and entertaining guide I have ever met. He would answer in details any of our questions about wildlife and vegetation as well as South African history and culture. He would add some fascinating facts to make the experience even more memorable. Although many people will say that our incredible sightings in Kruger National Park have been pure luck I am convinced that Niel’s deep knowledge of animals behavior and the many years of experience have contributed tremendously. I will definitely use Impi Safaris for my future travels. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants to explore Southern Africa.

This spring, I worked with Niel at Impi Safari to bring 12 students and 3 Faculty to sites in Namibia and South Africa. Niel was incredible to work with. He understood the educational goals of the trip and lined up the best local guides for us to work with. From the Namib Desert to Windhoek to Soweto, Johannesburg and Pilansberg National Park, Niel went above and beyond to ensure that our group was engaged, comfortable, and safe. He personally brought two students to the pharmacy when they were sick, and worked with a student following the trip to find an organization to intern with during the summer. He ensured that students learned different perspectives of political issues in the country and helped coordinate experiences that would engage those different perspectives. And, in Pilanesberg, we got to see jaguars and elephants and ate incredible food at the wonderful Tended Adventures that Impi Safaris set up for our stay. I can't recommend Imp Safaris highly enough!
