Our acquaintance with Nhongo Safaris began with e-mail correspondence - Verity answered to all our questions about 3-day classic safari quickly and professionnaly. That's why we choose this operator and didn't regret it one bit. We met with Dean and Verity personally for a transfer from hotel in Johannesburg, and even this seemingly long trip was very informative and interesting thanks to our hosts' stories about life in this country. When we arrived in park we were greeted by our guide Amanda - and she definitely turned our drives into exciting and vivid experience with her dry sense of humor and perceptible passion for wildlife. One of the best monents in this trip is the fact that we spent our time together not only on the safari drives themselves but also on breakfasts and dinners, and that's wonderful and quite rare bonding experience, especially for a first visit in country and especially when all your hosts are such a great and friendly people. It made for warm and memorable atmosphere. Despite covid situation in the world our safari was tightly organized, we haven't met any troubles and really can't recommend it highly enough. All our 3 days passed by in a flash and we already want to come back - and maybe plans like these are quite unpredictable in our times, but one thing we can say for sure: when we will come back in Kruger Park, it will definitely be with Nhongo.

This is my 3rd trip with Nhongo Safaris so my expectations were very high. I am very happy to report that they were fully met from the ease of booking to the very last day. I booked directly by email from their web site and from the start Verity was friendly and communicative as we found a suitable booking date (they were still waiting for their permits to be renewed). They arranged accommodation at the new Safari lodge at Skukuza and that is review separately. Due to the COVID situation, we had to drive to Nelspruit rather than being picked up directly in Johannesburg and was met by Amanda our driver and guide for the trip. One hour later, our "Kruger experience" started. Amanda's huge knowledge and passion for the animals and their welfare was obvious from the start and she started the way all customer service outlets should start by establishing just what our aspirations were from the trip - for me an easy answer as I had yet to see a leopard on any of my trips. All expectations were met and I saw my beautiful leopard on the second day not to mention all of the "Big Five" and may more aside including the cutest hyena pups you will ever see :) . For the four day visit we enjoyed a full game drive on each day plus a sunset drive provided by the lodge. The weather was variable but the game vehicle and Nhongo provided all the protection needed to keep us dry and warm. As said earlier, this is my third trip with Nhongo, each time with a different and excellent guide/driver so I can heartily recommend them and for sure will be looking forward to trip no 4 in the future.

We spent 9 nights adventuring from the top to the bottom of Kruger National Park with a group of 12 Aussie’s and our two amazing Nhongo guides Amanda and Shannon. These ladies certainly know their wildlife stuff! We learnt so much, saw so much and were extremely well taken care of. The trip far exceeded all our expectations and we would highly recommend booking with these guys. We had the best time and can’t wait to do it again!

I was part of a 12 person group that only met each other at the airport on our way to a 9 day Safari from Mopani down to Skukuza. This Trip exceeded all of my expectations, from seeing the Big 5 by day 2 - Amanda & Shannons knowledge passion & love for the animals of Kruger & the breathtaking scenery & variety of wildlife. They went out of their way to create a great atmosphere in the vehicles & to have some fun along the way. Nothing was to hard for the girls to arange & they went out of their eay to ensure everyone was getting the most out of this experience & making it a truly memorable !

Let’s be honest – sitting at home, searching the internet for a good and trustworthy safari provider can be really exhausting. So don’t search no more – if you love nature, you are interested in all the wonderful animals and want a fair price – choose Nhongo safaris! No matter what kind of safari you book, the quality of your experience is highly dependent on how good your guide is. And with Nhongo you definitely won’t have bad luck with your guide! Our 4-day-budget-Krüger Safari was the trip of our lifetime. This wasn’t only for Krüger showing its best of wildlife but also because our guide Amanda took such good care of us. We also had the luck to meet the other Nhongo guides (Gert and Shannon), who were like Amanda kind, lots of fun and knowledgeable about everything there is to know about Krüger and its animals. Everything went really well and Nhongo took great care of us: from our pick-up (thanks Dez!) in Johannesburg until the very end at the border to Mozambique. We were four people plus our guide in a great, comfortable and – most important – with-a-perfect-sight-of-everything-going-on-around-you safari jeep. Amanda helped us find every animal from the tiniest beetle to the big five – we cherished everything and what was so great about Nhongo: they do appreciate nature and all the animals as well. They take good care of the environment and all the animals and Amanda shared with us not only her immense knowledge about the animals, but also history, lots of fun stories and great pictures. Once again, thanks to Nhongo Safari for this unforgettable experience and special thanks to AMANDA – I still trace your whatsapp status and envy you every second for being in Krüger! 😊 p.s. We’ll definitely see each other again in Krüger 😊
