Frank Watts is a magical land mermaid that will take an already amazing experience to new levels with his quick wit, infectious passion, and infinite wisdom. We spent 5 idyllic days in the remarkable kingdom of Kruger. We saw the most amazing things from elephants that were so close that I could hear their ears fanning themselves to an actual lion hunt that ended in a kudu escaping with it's life. We drove through mass open Savannas and breathed in the freshest air that fully cleaned my soul and reset my overstressed spirit. However, the memory I hold the dearest is the one of our guide. Frank made every moment special, he turned me into a morning person, and showed me what it looks like to truly love your job. Book this safari, book a trip with Frank, give yourself that once in a lifetime adventure that you have been craving.

We did the morning safari and it was well worth it! Sam was an amazing guide. We saw 4 of the big 5 by 9 am. We had 2 separate lion sightings largely due to Sam’s ability to analyze droppings and tracks in the road and his vast network. We were always one of the first three cars at the sightings and had a good 3-5 minutes before tons of other Safari trucks arrived. Sam has an eagle eye, which is a great quality to have in a guide! He would also help self-drivers out when they asked, which is an extremely kind thing to do. When we self drove the next day, no safari trucks helped us out (Echo Africa was especially unfriendly). Sam isn’t the most talkative person but if you want to make sure you see as many animals as possible, then book him. We did another tour with a different company but this was definitely the best. We also really preferred this truck to others we were in because the front is closed (but can be opened) and the driver’s cabin is higher, which cuts down a lot on the wind. We would 100% book with Sam again!

We must agree with other posters, this is an absolutely great safaris group. Frank is the Guy! Knowledgeable , fun, enthusiastic , charming and loves Kruger. We did a full day with Frank who is very experienced and well respected by the other guides. Every minute was a joy. We fully endorse Other Animals Safari. We initially thought we would self drive. We are so glad we did not. We were a group of 6 and it met our every hope! thanks Frank, you are a joy!

Our guide picked us up in Hazyview and we entered through the phebeni gate into the park. It was a fantastic viewing day. Lots of animals out and about and our guide, Sam, was very knowledgeable and friendly. We had a fantastic afternoon safari.

We scheduled a private half day tour as a family of 6 (2 adults, 1 teen, 3 pre-schoolers). Because of a weather delay, we arrived in Hazyview a day late. I knew we would need to reschedule our safari, so I emailed Di from the airport in Dubai. She was very kind and understanding. She offered other available times, and we confirmed a new date. While in Hazyview, I was having trouble receiving emails and did not get the email with pick-up information. Di was great and sent the information via WhatsApp. Sam picked us up right on time. He had warm ponchos for us as the weather changed drastically from the day before as was then cold and rainy. He was a great guide, and we thoroughly enjoyed the safari. The sun came out late morning, and the only animal we missed was a rhino. Prices were very reasonable in comparison to others, and I would recommend them to anyone. Thanks Di and Sam!

Hi Roberto, thank you for taking the time to post a review. We are pleased you enjoyed your safari with us and that our staff came to the party even if the weather didn't initially :-) Our warm ponchos have got many fans all over the world, one of Di's many good ideas. We hope you had a safe trip home
