Did an afternoon, full day and morning safari trips with Vula safaris. Highly recommend Yana and Briggs. Their knowledge of the park and the animal’s behaviour was excellent and we saw many animals and learnt a lot. The early morning departure s are very cold so make sure you have very warm coats but then the day warms up to be quite warm. It’s surreal to experience 4 seasons of one day as they say but it’s so true. An unforgettable experience we will always remember.

Did half day and full day Kruger game drive with Vula. Our guide was Yana. She is an excellent guide and we spotted so many animals, too many to list including endangered species.
They are a very professional outfit and would highly recommend them.

We booked our game drives with Vula Safaris through their partners The Earth Safari while planning our trip from New Delhi. The experience with both was absolutely fantastic. Big thanks to Saran from The Earth Safari and Gerald from Vula Safaris for an unforgettable experience. We saw the Big 5 before 11 am on our first morning safari :)

This trip was actually back in May 2016 and I just never got to writing this review. Now that we are all in lockdown due to CV19 I am finding the time to do so many things like this review. Jurie Van Standen was our awesome tour guide. Extremely knowledgeable and we saw every animal except the Leopard. It was such a great experience to be in the wild with an experienced guide that always made us be and feel safe. He knew exactly where to go to find animals. At the very beginning we saw a bunch of giraffes. We saw a herd of elephants with a bunch of babies. So beautiful! We saw Rhinos, Hippos, Zebras, Lions, Tigers, and many more. We tried to find the Leopard but after many attempts we didn’t. It was ok as you can’t expect to always see them in the wild. We did have a terrible man on our tour that was expecting Krueger park to be a zoo and wanted all the animals available at his whim and Jurie our guide handled him politely and did his best to spot the animals but the man still complained. Everything was a problem for the man. Jurie was an outstanding guide and I would want him as a guide on any other trip again. VULA Tours was professional, all on time, exactly delivered what was described and we had a wonderful experience. I am just sorry you have to deal with ignorant travelers that treat others poorly. I would highly recommend VULA and Jurie Van Staden.

We did the afternoon safari from Kruger Gate with Gerald and it was a lovely time! Gerald is an extremely knowledgeable conversationalist and could answer all of our questions. We had already been on a morning safari so Gerald took us on all of the roads in the area that we hadn’t been on yet! He really really tried to find us as many animals as possible. We covered A LOT of ground. I would definitely recommend to book with Gerald! But a morning tour is probably easier for sightings.

Werner our guide couldn’t have been any better! Very knowledgeable and passionate throughout the trip. Werner went above and beyond for us and even got involved with our travelling teddy bear. It was unbelievable how close we were to so many of the animals. I will be visiting again and highly recommend Vula tours.

My friends and I just finished a three day/two nights Safari with Vula Tours and we all agreed on that we had an absolutely, amazing time.

VULA TOURS
I contacted couple of safari operators before we started our trip to the Kruger Park and Sarah from Vula Tours replied within few hours, had the best price and was the only company, who was able to offer us exactly that safari package which we were looking for:
- 3 days safari
- a morning bush walk
- a night safari and
- staying overnight IN the park

OUR GUIDE
We got Werner as our guide and we are convinced that there would have been no better guide for us. Not only that he has an incredible knowledge about the animals, the nature and the Kruger park itself, he also did everything he could so that we got to see as many animals as possible within those three days of safari. He adapted the times of our game drives that we got the best chances to spot the animals and picked those areas of the park, where he expected the best chances to see them. And it worked out: we saw so many beautiful animals such as giraffes, elephants, zebras, rhinos, buffalos, hippos, turtles, lions and even leopards. (To whom it matters: yes, we spotted the Big 5 - twice) Also, Werner did not get tiered in answering all our questions, he even told us exciting safari stories - out of his long year experience as a guide - which we loved to listen to. Moreover, he is such a nice person. He always made sure that we were feeling ok and even provided us with useful tips for the rest of our holiday in South Africa.

ACCOMODATION & FOOD
We were staying at the Skukuza Rest Camp and although this is a huge camp, we liked it. We had a nice bungalow at the river and one night we saw a herd of elephants crossing the river. During our dinner (breakfast and dinner was included, we could choose in the camp restaurant from the menue and it tasted very good) on the terrace we were watching buffaloes who were taking a bath in the river. Amazing!!!!

Thank you so much Vula Tours and especially Werner for the unforgettable experience. Needless to say, that we highly recommend Vula Tours & Werner to anyone looking into safari operators in the Kruger Park.

Vula Tours is such a great way to experience Kruger Park because the guides are incredibly knowledgeable. Most safari tour companies speed past a lot of amazing animals to only show you certain things. The Vula Tours guides take their time and understand animal behavior to educate you and show you quite amazing things most people don’t witness. Our guide was Neil and he was so much fun to travel with. He is passionate about what he does and that makes the safaris even more exciting.

Vula Tours also does so much more than Kruger Safaris. They can book a many different adventures for you. Great customer service. You have to travel through Vula Tours!!!

We took an afternoon safari with Vula Tours, and it was terrific. We were met promptly at our lodge by our guide, Will, who has been leading safaris for 25 years.. Since this was our second safari, we were slightly concerned that we might just hear a replay of everything we’d heard on the previous trip, but such was not the case. Will knew a great deal about the park and both its animals and plants, and almost nothing he related was a repetition of our earlier experience. Although he had a plan for what route to follow, when we met up with a couple who told us where there were cheetahs to be found, Will immediately set out for that location, where we did indeed find two cheetahs lying under a tree (and being very warily monitored by a group of zebras nearby). Will also took us to parts of Kruger we had not been to before, including a section that had recently undergone a controlled burn. We saw large numbers of the animals we had been hoping for, despite the fact that it was the heat of the day and – until toward the end – the time of day many animals would be sleeping. I would strongly recommend Vula Tours for anyone interested in a guided trip through Kruger.
