Excellent experience seeing ALL the animals. Simon went above and beyond creating a fun and informative safari showing the years of experience that he has in the park and with the animals. Great dinners too. Highly recommended company.

Yet again, Wild Wings Safaris excelled.
We originally booked a safari at the start of lockdown, little knowing the impact that the global pandemic would have on international travel for the following two years. However, from the very outset, Wild Wings were amazing, helpful, understanding and did everything they could to handle all of our travel worries. Despite unforeseen staffing changes, the company left us in no doubt that all of the changes, rearrangements, postponements etc could be accommodated with nothing for us to worry about. Whether it was Madi or Michael, Simon or Onne, they each went out of their way to reassure, to advise, to provide information and to help us make our dreams a reality, all against the backdrop of a lockdown that had seen their industry brought to its knees. A truly amazing company and real team.
We opted for a few days self-drive, followed by a private 5-day best-of-kruger safari with the inimitable Simon as our guide. Some of our party had been before, but for some, this was their first time in the Kruger. The Kruger National Park and Wild Wings Safaris in particular, did not let us down. Simon's knowledge and experience of the Park gave us some amazing sightings - a crash of 7 rhino, multiple lions, leopards and cheetah as well as superb bird sightings, insects, reptiles, spiders and of course Simon's unparalleled cooking. We really were spolied. And then of course there's the man himself - he's far more than just a guide... he's an amazing chef, he is always ready to listen and help, his good humour and conversation is always worth engaging with and as for his riddles... not for the faint-hearted.
I would thoroughly recommend this safari company to anyone wanting to visit the Kruger National Park. The only downside for us is that we probably won't be able to return anything like as soon as we would wish to.

I cannot recommend Wild Wings enough. We had such a wonderful time. During the booking process, Ilaria was so amazingly helpful. Once we got there, our guide Nicky was just beyond our expectations. She was so knowledgeable and you could tell she had a real passion. We saw the big 5 and so much more. Wonderful meals, comfortable stay in Skukuza, and great company. An experience we’ll never forget.

Wild Wings provided great service from start to finish. Ilaria helped put together a great itinerary on super short notice (like a week) involving a safari inside kruger with their contracted guide Simon and then a couple days at a private reserve in Sabi Sands. Ilaria handled all the arrangements including booking me a flight from Joberg out to Kruger when there were no land transport available - at no extra charge. Simon was an awesome guide, super happy I was with him instead of self-driving. We def saw a lot more wildlife due to his knowledge, spotting skills and being in touch with the other guides. Stellar service all around from Wild Wings!

Wow! What an amazing experience!

Ilaria was incredibly responsive and helped us book a perfect 3 day tour.

We were fortunate enough to have Simon the Barefoot Guide on our excursion in the Kruger National Park. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the park and knew exactly when and where to look for wildlife.

After working for Marriott and Choice hotels as a VP of Development I recently retired and know great hospitality when I experience it. Hospitality is truly in Simon's blood! He was genuinely friendly, a gracious host and a really good cook.

Simon, Ilaria and Wild Wings provide the journey of a lifetime!

Michael at Wild Wings Safaris was extremely helpful in finding suitable accommodation for our family with 2 young children (6 and 14 yrs old). We had a fantastic experience at Mohlabetsi Safari Lodge and the kids throughly enjoyed it. The Safari Lodge that Michael found for us was perfect for our needs. He was very responsive when we explained what type of experience we were looking for, and was able to come back to us quickly with any additional information we needed.

From start to finish, the trip was insane, from the get go there were no issues arranging the perfect dates, the length of the stay or choices of accommodation. Ilaria and I spent far more than most would deem necessary emailing back and forth making sure absolutely everything was perfect. From the moment I landed in Kenya I was greeted at the airport by the team and from then on, totally hands off on my part, everything was thought through by them. Once we arrived into the Mara it just kept getting better. James my guide was one of the most knowledgeable and thorough guides I've met while being super chilled out and great fun to be around, to the point I can't think of anyone I'd want more for my next guide, he also had an interest in photography so we spent time between drives going over each others photos to see what we each managed to capture! He knew exactly the best spots to go and how to get there as well as the ideal times to leave the camps and hotels to make sure we'd be one of the first out there for sunrise and being the first out there to see the wildlife on the morning hunts. I genuinely cannot rate this trip highly enough and will be planning another visit as soon as I can.

Our experience with Wild Wings was nothing short of exceptional. Our booking agent Clare was very quick to return emails and answering our questions. She assisted us in moving our safari one year due to Covid and worked very hard to ensure we had a great experience. The lodge we chose, Kambaku River Sands exceeded our expectations in every way, and that is due to Clare and her assistance. I would not hesitate to utilize Wild Wings to book your dream safari!

Loved, loved, LOVED this trip. Wild Wings Safaris booked us an 18-day Southern Africa adventure that included a three-day Kruger Safari, private reserve safari, Victoria Falls, Chobe Botswana, Cape Town, Johannesburg, Outdshoorn, Kynsna, and Garden Route self-drive. Our Tour Advisor Michael took our request ("we want to see animals and Victoria Falls, here's our budget, and oh, one of our party has mobility issues") and designed the perfect trip of a lifetime. We had to postpone our original trip date due to COVID travel restrictions, and when we were ready to travel again, Michael rebooked everything exactly as we'd originally planned, no problem. He was gracious and accommodating of our many questions, and didn't even flinch at my naivete when it came to international travel. The trip was virtually flawless, and we felt we were in excellent hands.

Our Wild Wings Kruger Guide Nicky was amazing. We had a ton of sightings and got some amazing pictures. She even helped me with the settings on my new camera to be sure I could capture what I was seeing. Our full day really was a full day: Nicky picked us up right after the camp gates opened at 6:00, and we almost didn't make it back before the gates closed 12 hours later. In the middle, she cooked us a terrific meal in a public picnic spot with elephants chewing on trees right next to us!

I can't say enough about this company and its people. If you're looking for someone to handle all of the everythings that come with an international adventure, look no further. Highly recommended.

We went on a 4 day safari through wild wings and it was the experience of a lifetime. Nicky was our guide and was great-not only was she knowledgeable about the animals and Kruger in general but she clearly enjoyed the animals and was passionate about being a guide. We were able to see the the big five plus many more with great views. Breakfasts and dinners were delicious and very well thought out. Nicky was very consciousness of the pandemic and made everything feel very safe and comfortable. There were four of us who went in our group and this is a trip we will never forget.
