An opportunity presented itself for “A Trip of a Lifetime”; we took it and never looked back. The family owned business “ Mafigeni Safari” (locally means “Built on a Rock") provided without exception a private and personalized experience of the scenery, culture, wildlife and history for an unforgettable vacation. All the family, staff and especially our Guide (certified professional photographer safari guide-ranger-warden) Andre Kruger aka “AK" looked after us like a “Mother Hen", attending to every detail, day or night ….. and yet it was as casual and comforting as a “Bed and Breakfast”. Once we undertook the preventative medical regime ( yellow-fever, typhoid, meningitis and of course “malaria” ) the fact that we were really going on “Safari”, hit us. We thought, we better

I'm not sure where or how to begin. My wife, sister and I embarked on a journey into the unknown. We met Jill at the Huntin' Time Expo in Grand Rapids, Michigan where she explained the advertised photo safari into South Africa. Airfare, drinks, food and excursions all included! Where's the catch? We discovered there is none. I won't kid anybody 20 hours in an airplane is not my idea of fun but it is the only downside yet it is long forgotten once you get acquainted with the staff at Mafigeni and the experience absolute beauty of South Africa. You awake to majestic sunrises each morning and stunning sunsets kiss you goodnight but it's what happens in between that will give new definition to "awesome". Take a morning swim or enjoy the sounds as nature awakens around you.

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome it felt like home even though we had never been there before. The front of house staff were warm and friendly there was nothing that was too much effort for them to do. The rooms are amazing and maintained daily by a team of amazing woman. The grounds are a pleasure to stroll through or spend time in the pool with family and friends. Mafigeni is a dream venue for a family or friends who want to experience the true essence of South Africa..We will be back in 2020.

Greetings Tamsin, I just wanted to send you and the greatest crew the BIGGEST THANK YOU EVER!!!!!! All of you made us feel as if we were VIP's, Diplomats, Aristocrats or Royalty. We took notice of every little detail that you and Laurali (I hope I spelled her name right) did for us. It was just flawless and I just wanted you to know that nothing went unnoticed from us as guests at Mafigeni. Jill & Jesse you have the best staff and dedicated employees that can't be matched anywhere in South Africa. From our wonderful meals, reservations for game drives and suggestions for other attractions & activities, My team of 1st timers to South Africa & Mafigeni Safari Lodge were TOTALLY IMPRESSED. I will be looking forward to our stay next year and hopefully with a much bigger
