INCREDIBLE trip of a lifetime!
5/5

We had Henry as our guide and as I am writing this in the airport, we miss him already. I would recommend Wildlife Safaris to anyone, and (I’m sure the other guides are also great), but I would tell my friends to specifically ask for Henry!

Henry’s extensive knowledge was but one thing.. but it was his genuine friendliness and the way he took care of our small group that was next level! A great man to say the very least.

We were very fortunate and saw the Big Five within the first 1.5 days. We also saw lions up close and personal (including one of the few white lions!) and by a stroke of luck caught an actual chase from wild dogs on the last day.

The tour was very well thought out as it was progressive - it started at Sabie Lodge (2 nights), then to Satara (1 night) and finishing at Hippo Hollow (1 night). We felt completely safe and the learning about the animals (and frankly the history of Kruger Park and South Africa as a whole) was endless.

Thanks to Henry, his expertise and his friendship ❤️. We hope you come to Canada soon and we can show you the grizzlies, the moose and the beavers!

Memorable First African Safari with Wildlife Safaris
5/5

Brought my family on our first African Safari @ Kruger National Park in December 2023.

We were most fortunate to have “Hoppy” as our guide - passionate about African wildlife, knowledgeable about the ecology of Kruger National Park, Hoppy was most happy to share his knowledge.

With Skukuza as our base camp, we explored Kruger from Hoppy’s eyes - saw more animals than we thought possible, and heard many more interesting stories. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and wished that we could have stayed an extra day.

We stayed at Skukuza Rest Camp Chalets. There were other newer, more expensive lodges but having travelled a long way from Asia, we preferred these chalets as they offered us an authentic African safari experience. Skukuza, we felt, was also more central location wise and being in the nature reserve, facilitated easy access to game drives and animals.

Mealtimes were enjoyable and rich in conversation, as were the morning coffees with Hoppy. For us, mealtimes were interesting too for other reasons - there were breakfast at Skukuza Golf Club aka “Wildest Golf Club in the World” amongst Hyenas and Hippos, Mugg & Bean Lower Sabie amongst African Buffaloes, lunch at Alzu amongst a large collection of reared African wildlife, and dinner at Cattle Baron back in Skukuza after a long day out.

It was a memorable safari.

Best Wishes Hoppy, loved our trip.

I could not say enough great things about this tour or our guide
5/5

I have wanted to go on an African safari since I was a small child. Wildlife Safaris made it affordable and fun. We saw all the Big 5 almost immediately upon entering Kruger National Park. We were astonished by guide Simon Taylor's depth of knowledge about the park and all its animals. He had a great knack for spotting wildlife, IDing birds, etc., and was able to provide details about everything from how they dehorn rhinos to why a secretary bird is called a secretary bird. The meals included as part of the trip were excellent, too.

All good, but evening safari was a scam
3/5

The tour itself is very good. Hoppy (our guide) was very experienced and could spot animals really well. He also geve us a lot of information about the animals and respond every single question we asked. Accomodations and food were also good.

The really bad part of this tour is the evening safari. The guide was very unexperienced and just cared about driving, keeping his eyes on the road all the time, and talking a lot and veeeery slow. The few animals we saw were spotted by the tourists, not the guide. In addition, the torches were supposed to be operated by the tourists, but we had no instructions about it.
Definitely the worst safari I have ever had in Africa. WildSafaris sould change the operator for this safari, as it is very unprofesional that they put unexperienced and non-motivated guides.
