It's been my second time in Kruger and I knew I just had to do a game drive with Elize again! She is the most amazing guide you can imagine! Communication before the trip is easy and she is always trying to give you the best experience. Pick-up at the accommodation and transfer to the park was perfectly timed. During the drive she is telling you lots of interesting stories and facts about the bush. For me as a photographer, Elize is always making sure I'm getting a good angle and perfect shots. The breaks in-between are perfectly timed and that's when she really starts spoiling you! The food is very very lekker, the spots are well picked. The breakfast and lunch was amazing! Even on hot days, there are enough cold drinks for everyone. Elize knows Kruger by heart and is taking you to lots of amazing places. We had great sightings with lot's of game and spend such an amazing day with her in the park. She is such a fun person and it's her passion to make your Safari at Kruger special. As a student, budget is always limited, but the experience you get is worth every Rand. We can definitely recommend Bushbaby Adventures and I'm sure it wont't be the last time I'm doing a Safari with Elize!

Often, a tour guide is a special person who creates either an unforgetable experience or regret. Mrs Olivier, the owner/operator at Bushbaby Adventures is a special person who creates a truly memorable experience. Prior to the adventure, the booking, payment and arrangements of the are uncomplicated and effortless. Mrs Olivier responds quickly and prepares guests on what to wear and what to expect. On the day of the adventure, Mrs Olivier arrives punctually and well-turned out. She is a pleasant person, practiced at drawing even the most taciturn our of their shells. She possesses in-depth knowledge of her area of expertise and the ability to communicate such lucidly. The catering was excellent and vegetatrion friendly. By the conclusion of the adventure, one feels that Mrs Olivier is an old friend and likely to remains so. Her recommendations about restaurants in the area can be relied upon.

I can highly recommend booking a Safari with Bushbaby adventures. Elize is the most lovely person. She picked us up at our accommodation and we spent an amazing day in the krüger Nationalpark. Elize told us heaps of interesting facts bout the animals, the plants and the park itself. She took us to very good sighting spots in the park and we saw a lot of animals. Also the local food she prepared for us was amazing. Communication beforehand was very easy. Would definitely book with her again.

Elize was FANTASTIC! I cannot say enough good things about her. I went with my husband and his family on both an afternoon cruise and a full day cruise throughout the week. Not only was she incredibly friendly, but knowledgeable, hospitable, provided juices/water/snacks, and made the experience really exciting. She was very intentional about traveling to specific hot spots to see the big 5 and giving tons of info about the animals along the way. We even saw a cheetah with her four cubs! On the full day she provided rusks and coffee and snacks at a picnic stop and made lunch reservations at a restaurant in a nearby campsite. I will absolutely be contacting Elize every time I’m in South Africa for all of my Kruger Park experiences!

We had an incredible time on our Kruger safari with Elize. She is so warm, welcoming, and friendly and made us feel comfortable right away. She made the experience so special and personal for us. The breakfast and lunch that she provided were authentic and delicious. The safari itself was so much fun, and Elize taught us so much about the animals and Kruger! We saw elephants, giraffes, zebras, and so many more. The weather was a bit cold that day and Elize provided us with extra warm clothes and blankets. She is very prepared and knows her stuff! Highly recommend doing a tour with her!!
