Attentive to all the details, customized and personal experience, and incredibly knowledgeable.
5/5

My partner and I absolutely loved our 5-day experience with Wild Planet Safaris. We started with four days on safari in two different camps in Kruger, followed by a day of exploring the Panorama route. Thale (Wild Planet coordinator) advised us on every aspect of the transportation, activities, logistics, and options.

Thale responded very quickly and professionally to our questions and requests while planning the trip. Before and during the trip, she helped incorporate everything we wanted into our itinerary.

Our guides, Chris and Sani, drove us on morning, afternoon, and evening game drives and shared their incredible knowledge of the bush. They tailored the drives to our interests, and took us to the best locations to see rare game. Because of them and their knowledge, we saw a huge number of animals and birds. Highlights included baby cheetahs, giraffes, hippos, hyenas, vultures, lions (male, female, and cubs), and elephants galore! They even took us to the rare sighting of an elephant carcass with predators feeding at dawn. They also set up a night drive and a morning bush walk with the Kruger park rangers at our request. Both were incredible!

The service was excellent. They made sure we were comfortable with prepared meals four-times a day. We chose to camp during the trip, and they set up and packed camp quickly, allowing us to maximize time enjoying animals and exploring. They cooked almost every meal, and we especially loved the freshly barbecued bush brai, shared family-style. Sani's curry was a huge hit after a long day of adventure.

The five day package was great value, and we were lucky to have such an accommodating guide to plan our customized tour. We had a completely private tour experience. We slept in comfortable and warm cots in spacious tents, with electricity provided. I'm 6'5" and could stand up straight in the tent. All of the camp restrooms and showers were clean and well-maintained. Almost all meals were included in our package, and we spent very little money on the occasional lunch during travel days.

Our guides Chris and Sani were incredibly respectful and we enjoyed getting to know them and their backgrounds. They both were extremely gracious to us, helping us have the best experience possible. They were attentive to the smallest details, ensuring we ate with a table cloth and tailored the menu to accommodate our dietary restrictions. We felt very safe during the entire trip, both in terms of security, animals, and Covid 19.

We would absolutely use Wild Planet Safari again in the future and have already recommended them to our friends and family.

Exactly what we wanted and needed
5/5

We did an 8N/9D safari in June. The original plan was to go in 2021 but because of Covid everything was postponed. Thale was very understanding and was happy to accommodate us this year, 2022, instead. She also organized us a custom made trip where we skipped the beach but did only safari parks: We stayed 1 night in Blyde Canyon, 5 in Kruger and 2 in Hluhluwe.

We had two guides: Chris for Blyde and Kruger and Trompie for Hluhluwe. Two completely different people for the two different parts of our trip. Both were very knowledgeable and gave tons of information, making us feel like we could be safari guides ourselves by the end.
They also provided us with great meals. I loved the braai, the braaibroodje and the Durban Curry. Chris even surprised us with a typical African dish called Pap in South Africa or Sadza in Zimbabwe, when we told we wanted to eat as African as possible.
I knew I was going to love South(ern) Africa but I fell head over heals. Wild Planet was fantastic in helping out reaching this feeling. I wish I could go back tomorrow!
Thank you very much for making this all possible

Super lekker tour!
5/5

Are you unsure which safari tour to book (like we were)? Go for Wild Planet Safari! For four days, we travelled with Chris, Kagiso, and Ryan, who are outstanding guides, hosts, and cooks. They are deeply passionate about Kruger, respectful of all the animals (and our vegetarianism), and captivating story-tellers. In short: it was a super lekker experience!

Great private camping safari experience
5/5

From the consultation to the booking to the execution everything was uncomplicated and familiar. Our guides Chris and Kerry made our family camp safari (2 adults, 1 child, 11 years) through the Kruger a real experience. We saw lots of wildlife and Chris spoiled us with great culinary. The facilities were fit for purpose and we enjoyed the adventure all around. Thanks also to Thale who answered all my questions with great patience.

Knowledgeable and going that extra mile to make the experience exceptional!
5/5

My two kids (age 18 and 20) and I booked an 11-day Kruger Safari for 2020. Because of Covid, we were not able to complete the travel until July 2022. I would like to open my review by praising the flexibility and forthcoming way we have been treated. The planning and booking job was done and cancelled numerous times because of Covid and restrictions before we finally were able to go in 2022. All we have experienced from Thale, Ryan and the wonderful hosts at Wild Planet Safari, is a willingness and determination to solve everything with exceptional service and a smile. And when we entered the Kruger Park, they were always attentive and asked if there was anything we would like to see or do. If we wanted to see rhinos, they tracked and found rhinos. We actually spotted all Big 5 in one single day, which is exceptional. And the guides are very knowledgeable about the history and current status of the species; mammals, birds, reptiles, you name it. We were comfortably lodged in Park Lodge bungalows the whole trip, from Letaba Rest Camp, Satara, Skukuza and Lower Sabie. They also booked night game drive and bush walk for us with the local Park Rangers. I would highly recommend both. I would like to reflect on the value we got on our trip. It is possible to book a game drive with own car or with a bus, but the knowhow and service from the Wild Planet Safari team left me certain that it was worth every dollar. This should be on everyone's bucket list :-) Than you to Thale, Ryan, Chris, Adriaan and Cary for all the experiences and memories!
