I visited Rhulani Safaris awhile ago and it was an unforgettable experience. Armand the guide was very knowledgable and has so much passion for his work, even driving around talking to him is good fun! I saw so many animals I'd never expected to see, Armand knew all of the best spots to visit and knew the times to go to see the big 5, but also to have the place to ourselves. He also has an uncanny ability to spot a leopard in a tree that I would've never seen. On top of this, Armand was also very knowledgable on where to go in Johannesburg, as well as what foods to try and places to stay. I still have incredibly fond memories of my time with Armand and strongly recommend it to anyone who has a passion for animals and wants a genuine, honest guide to show them everything the parks have to offer.

My wife and I wanted a photo specific safari in South Africa that could offer a personal photo experience. As an avid photographer, I wanted a complete row in the vehicle for myself and my equipment. We also wanted an experienced photographer/guide who would site us for the best photo opportunities. We corresponded with the company’s owner Armand Grobler and Theresa Grobler who were both very responsive, even with the 9-hour time difference. We booked with the company for an 8-day adventure. We were not disappointed. Armand quickly picked up my photography interests and how he would site us in the field. Most Kruger area safaris focus on the Big Five which are Lions, Leopards, Cheetahs, Buffalo, and Rhinos. We saw them all in the first few days and numerous times for the rest of the trip. Armand was fabulous to work with and his two quide/drivers were courteous, knowledgeable and very helpful. Armand and I spent the afternoons doing photo reviews. He critiqued my images and we chose some of the best for Lightroom edits It was his personal touch that I appreciated. Finally, I've previously been on three photo excursions including Botswana, the Galapagos and Antarctica and I would rate my experience with Rhulani Safaris and Armand number one on my list.

We spent 5 days with Armand Grobler of Rhulani Safaris at Manyeleti and it was amazing. It's a quiet park and the camp is quite isolated so all the viewings we had to ourselves. One morning we saw the big five by 8 'o' clock. Armand looked after us so well. He made sure we had the best position at sightings for taking photos and he has a deep understanding and knowledge of the animals. We absolutely loved every minute of it and hope to return there one day for another amazing safari with Armand.It was the best holiday we have ever had.

Dear Sharon, Thank you immensely for your kind words, it is greatly appreciated. I am so happy that you and Michael both enjoyed your time here in Africa, it ended off wonderfully in the Manyeleti and the place (especially the water hole!) hasn't been the same since you left. We (the Manyeleti and our team at Rhulani Safaris) miss you both dearly. Hope to see you in the near future. All the Best, Armand Grobler

After my visit with my daughter in 2018, I had to bring my wife to Manyeleti this year. Armand again took care of everything and my wife had the best trip experience ever. Rhulani Safaris had arranged airport pickup in Johannesburg, the transfer to Manyeleti, the overnight stay in Buffelshoek and Nzdhaka, the private car for the game drives as well as the closing in the wonderful private lodge in Blyde wildlife estate. What a perfect trip. We will come back again !

We had such a beautiful time in the Manyeleti Game Reserve! We had stunning sightings, which are possible only with a very experienced and hard-working guide. We were glad that we could spend a lot of time with the Big 5 and all the other beautiful animals in this reserve. The service was (again) really excellent, and we are very grateful for everything that we could experience on our safari! This was our second booking, and we will definitely return as soon as possible. If I only had some time available, I would pack my camera equipment straightaway ;-)
