I spent a lot time deciding which safari company to go with and decided to trust Nhong’s Tripadvisor ranking.

We signed up for the 4 day, 3 night Safari with Nhongo. Our transport arrived at our guesthouse in Johannesburg on time and Dez was friendly and accommodating. We met our guide Jurie when we arrived at Kruger. Jurie was very informative, professional, and knowledgeable. I appreciate his respect for the animals and Kruger in general. You can tell he...

We were very lucky with the company we chose for our safari, Nhongo. This really is a once in a lifetime experience and something that has to be done properly. From the very start we felt like we were in good hands with the transfer pick up from the hotel we were staying at, the driver Dez was very friendly... More

We were so glad to be with Nhongo when we got to Kruger. The other safari companies stuffed their vehicles complete full and we always had extra space in ours. Our guide, Kara, was the kindest and most knowledgeable person. We absolutely loved her and she was a part of our family while we were there. She was so accommodating... More

We were a group of nine people, two families with teenagers. I contacted Nhongo eight months in advance, and always got very quick and exact answers to my questions. The service was excellent, and Verity made it very easy for me to book the 3 day Golden Oldie safari. We had a pick up from an airport hotel in Johannesburg,... More

Booked this somewhat last minute and the process was fairly smooth. Communication about timing of flights and pickup was great to ensure we made the most of our time. Our guide Gert was awesome. His interest and enthusiasm for the local wildlife and beyond made the trip so much more worthwhile. His patience as we navigated the park over four... More

It was our first visit to Krueger and having done some research, we decided to trust the positive reviews and the fact that Nhongo were organising their own tours, rather than through a big tour operator. We have had such an amazing experience, right from our being picked up from Johannesburg by Dez, who gave us a mini guided tour... More

I researched many tour companies for our Kruger safari and found this to be the best both from value as well as service perspective. Verity who arranged our tour is excellent. Very fast response time and very easy to communicate with. She catered to our vegetarian diet needs and put us in a camp that provides good choice of vegetarian... More

We decided to book with Nhongo as it operates its own tours rather than acting as an agent and we were not disappointed. Everything is very well organised and the staff are all very friendly. Highly recommend using them. My wife and I went on the three day, two night safari and were collected from Jo'burg for the 4 hour... More

Kara was our guide and her knowledge surrounding the animals and the Kruger was vast and detailed. We were lucky and sighted the big 5 in two days. Kara had a fascinating fact lined up for every animal we came across – having her was practically like having an encyclopedia on the matter. The game viewer that Nhongo Safaris uses... More
