    1. the safari was superb, hilarious guide ranger (Niko) and stunning view of the park. Niko made every effort to look for the Big Five although the weather was not accomodating, i.e quite cold morning hence not much animal activities. But managed to see cheetahs, rhinos, giraffes, zebras, elephants, etc.
    2. impressive lunch menu of ostrich burger, bearwoost ...eventhough i was advised giraffe meat taste as good as the lamb chopped but giraffe was not offered
    3. nonetheless there was a drama when our transport was stopped by a group of police stopped us just 100mtr before entering the park. and was told that our transport did not have the proper license (?) to transport passengers between province. The policewoman told us that the transport will have to be taken to the police station and the transport company will have to pay Rand 5000 to have the van release. But after some arguing, the policewoman finally let us continue without having to pay the fine. Not a good start of the safari...but in the end everything is went smoothly.

    Exciting overall trip although would be better if not for the transport drama.

    He is very kind and knows eeevrything!
    Lunch in Soweto was so good I had to go for seconds!
    Loved to learn about the rich, sometimes sad, history of South Africa.

    My first time in South Africa (and in Africa in general), and it was a memorable one thanks to Viva Safaris. I did a 6 day Tremisana Lodge tour and I had an amazing time from beginning to end. Transfer from Jo'burg to the lodge and back was smooth thanks to the drivers George and Sully. Nyarai, the lodge manager, was very welcoming and ensured that my stay was comfortable throughout. Elvis, Caroline, and Audrey were just the most exceptional chefs - breakfast, lunch, and dinner were all amazing. I really enjoyed the bush brais at the Marula Tree Boma under the beautiful, clear, starry night sky. And of course...the game drives...words cannot describe the excitement and beauty behind wildlife spotting here. Elias and Yuri are so knowledgeable and enthusiastic about wildlife and ensured we saw every animal possible - their ability to spot animals (no matter how far or how hidden) is impeccable! Game drives were done in early mornings and late afternoons and thus the sunrise and sunset scenery was just spectacular. From a combination of tours around the vast Kruger Park and the beautiful Balule Reserve, I was able to see the Big Five and so much more. The guides made sure we could get as close to the animals as possible while maintaining and ensuring our safety. As Elias (who has the greatest sense of humour) says...hakuna matata...it's a game, and the bush will always surprise you. Indeed, the bush did surprise me with all of its secrets and wonder. As soon as I left, I already started to miss the game drives and pondered my next visit back to Kruger/Balule with Viva Safaris.

    Buffalo Solider was our tour guide, a very knowledgeable and friendly individual. He knew exactly where to find the animals and gave background information on each one we saw. It is a matter of luck to see each animal but overall an amazing experience, would definitely recommend this experience to anyone.

    Quite cold in the morning but quickly warmed up so be advised if planning on taking a trip in June.

    The Sterkfontein Cave Experience is absolutely incredible. The Maropeng museum is also a great educational experience.

    What a wonderful experience! Jason picked us up from our hotel; he was very accommodating, kind, and knowledgeable. He even stopped for coffee in the early morning. The park was beautiful; we got to witness elephants, zebras, giraffes, rhinos.
    Jason drove us back and ensured we had a comfortable and pleasant time. If you’re planning a trip to Pilansberg, I would highly recommend this tour.

    Everything was great. From the quick booking till the end.
    In the morning Solli came to pick us up from the hotel already with a friendly attitude even tho he was early morning. During the drive we got a small briefing for how will be the day and then we enjoyed the drive.
    when we arrived at the Safari the renger Nico was waiting for us also with a friendly attitude. He shared with us all his knowledge about everything of the safari and all the animals we saw. We saw 4 out of 5 of the Big Five ( Lion, Elephant, Rhino and Leopard) and many other.
    the lunch break was also great surrounded by giraffes, Cudù and warthog.
    I WOULD STRONGLY RECOMMEND IT TO EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO ENJOY A NICE SAFARI WITH A LOT OF KNOWLEDGE AND FUN.

    Thanks again for the nice experience.

    The higlight was visiting Mandela's house. Such great memories in there and I learned quite a lot..
    I also got to experience the different levels of life in Soweto.
    Before I thought it was very dangerous but it's just a safe place full of historic events.

    The trip was amazing and good organized. We saw all animals we wanted to see in the Kruger Park. One evenening and morning drive was perfect as we saw different animals and a incredible sunset.

    Even our special dietary requirements were fulfilled.

    A big thank you to our tourguides Sebe and Alfred who took care about us and explained so much.

    I can highly recommend the tour with Balanta.

    I had been to Kruger before and I wanted to do things a little different the second time around.
    I heard so many good things about the Panorama Route which Blyde Canyon forms part of - A must do!!!
    In addition to Blyde our guides took us to God's window, Mac mac falls and Burke's potholes.
    We spent two nights at Skukuza in Kruger National Park. Animal sightings were magnificent, our hosts were incredible, accommodation was comfortable, food awesome!!
    100% recommend this company!

    We recently stayed at both Treminsana and and Katekani camps. Yuri and Tolly were our very knowledgeable guides. For an authentic experience, I would recommend the 5 day Classic Kruger Safari. You wont be disappointed.

    With escooters,our guides Phiwe and Mike could take us to interesting streets that buses cant access, we could get to places wiickly and it was really fun. I am 62 yet the escooter was easy to use. Our guides were from Soweto and knew many of the folks around Soweto, they showed us what a wonderful community vibe there is in Soweto. The cost was very reasonable, includes entry into Hector Pietersen museum and Nelson Mandela house. Phiwe and Mike were extremely knowledgeable. We learned so much from our visit, it was both fun and somewhat sobering when you learn the history of Soweto, so much connected to the history of South Africa and the Apartheid regieme. Despite the history and hardship, the community of Soweto continues to demonstrate its strength and character. We would certainly take this tour again, it was truly one of the highlights of our visit to South Africa.
