Best experience in my life
5/5

I totally recommend Red Africa Safaris! First of all, quick and easy communication (other companies could send replies for 2-3 days). Also the price is very affordable but the service is more than excellent. The guide was really nice and considerate, I could never get tired learning facts about Kruger nature and history. Safari itself was unforgettable experience, and I think there is no way someone could regret choosing safari for holiday activity. Also we really liked accommodation and food. Thank you so much! I hope to see you one day again!

RAS goes ABOVE & BEYOND for their guests- my trip was life changing and an absolute dream come true!
5/5

In late February, my boyfriend and I did a 5-day Kruger National Park tour with Red Africa Safari and it was the most spectacular trip that we have ever been on-- truly a dream come true!

Amelia planned the most incredible for trip for us, and tailored the trip to accommodate every add-on that we requested (such as several private transfers to and from the airport, a panoramic route tour, and an all day elephant excursion), at a very affordable price. Since we only had 5-days, it was really important to us that we were able to make the most of every minute, and Amelia arranged the trip so that it was action packed and we wasted no time at all.

Itinerary:
- Day 1: Picked up from Johannesburg airport, drove to Graskop so we were in a good location for our panoramic tour the next morning
- Day 2: Panoramic tour, sunset safari in Kruger
- Day 3: Guided bush walk in Kruger, afternoon drive with Jaco in Kruger, night-time safari
- Day 4: Quick Sunrise drive with Jaco in Kruger, all-day elephant excursion, relaxed by pool at our beautiful Hazyview lodge
- Day 5: Sunrise safari in Kruger, drive to Johannesburg airport
- In terms of communication, service, value for money, reliability, and the tour itself: Red Safari deserves 100/10 stars across the board :)
- In terms of safety, they took lots of precautions around COVID. We felt super safe!
- This tour was perfection! Jaco is the most fantastic guide EVER!

As for our tour and experience, Jaco literally went above and beyond to make this trip extraordinary for us. Immediately upon Jaco greeting us at the airport, I was given a birthday card from the Red Safari team and some small mementos (my bday was the day before our arrival). It was SOO sweet and thoughtful! Really made my birthday extra special :).

Additionally, Jaco not only provided us private airport transfers for us at the beginning and end of our trip (~5 hour drive each way!), but he gave us an amazing panoramic tour, ensured that we made it to all of our excursions, took us on several private game drives in Kruger during down time (in between excursions), made us some excellent meals while staying in Kruger, and provided us with so much knowledge about Kruger, South Africa, African animals/ecosystems --- literally such a wealth of information!! We learned SOOO much from him, which gave us an even deeper appreciation of Kruger and South Africa.

Jaco is the kindest and most knowledgable person. His passion for what he does is really inspiring. We truly couldn't have asked for a more remarkable guide. We are already saving for our next trip with Red Africa Safari & Jaco! Again, this trip gave me some of the best moments of my life! I'm so grateful to Red Safari, Jaco, and Amelia for making our time for special.


FUN FACTS:
- Got to see all of the Big 6 (lions, leopard, elephants, buffalo, rhino, hippo)! And LOTSSSS of other animals
- Got to see lots of rare animals (wild African painted dogs, white tailed mongoose & cobra fighting, lion cubs etc.)
- Got to experience a 'Big Foot' all day elephant excursion at Hazyview Elephant Sanctuary. This was a dream come true! Can't recommend this experience enough.
- Panoramic view was truly breath-taking! Definitely recommend this if you have time!!!

Our personal highlight of our South Africa trip.
5/5

The communication during the planning was great, all our questions were answered in great detail, so that we were well advised despite the uncertain situation with Covid. Also during the tour we didn’t have to worry about a thing because everything was handled by our tourguide jaco. The tour itself was a perfect balance for us with the different kind of activities. The only thing that we would have changed was that we would have loved to hike to the bottom of the waterfall at Lizbon Falls on the Panorama Route, but we do understand that this was no option due to time constraints.
If you get Jaco as your tour guide, you will probably have one of the best guides in the whole world. He knows everything about nature from the smallest blade of grass to the big elephants. The atmosphere was always great and we felt very comfortable with him. You can tell how passionate he is about the things he tells and it is important to him that you as a customer have a great experience.

A trip of a lifetime! Great vision, planning and execution!

7-Day Kruger Park, Panorama Route & Cape Town Adventure
Working with Red Africa Safaris was a pleasure! We corresponded with Amelia to plan the booking and she was very responsive, detailed and thorough. She went above and beyond with helping answer any questions we had. Once we arrived in South Africa, we explored Kruger National Park and the nearby areas. Our tour guide, Jaco, was fantastic. He was very knowledgable (had stories and information for any occasion) and extremely pleasant. My wife and I felt taken care of and couldn't say enough good things about planning and booking our trip though Red Africa Safaris. The lodging throughout the trip was nice and clean and the lodge near Kruger was beautiful. We hope we can plan another trip with Red Africa Safaris, thank you!
