Knowledgeable and Professional Team.
5/5

We had a 3 day safari with a group of 7 family members---Mother in law who healthy mid 80s but slowing down/a bit of a falls risk, 14 year old, 11 year old, and 4 adults all in our 40s. Communication via email with Thale was excellent and professional. He was the most accommodating of our family's needs and itinerary but advised appropriately about how that would change costs and also how feasible the different options would be so we could make an informed decision. The 3 day tour, inclusive of most meals and transportation, was reasonable. Our guide always prompt and we were never kept waiting for him. He always communicated the schedule clearly. The accommodations at the camp were basic but adequate/comfortable. Goodwill is a great cook! I appreciated our guide Eric and his assistant Goodwill. They were professional always--- I love my mother in law but at times she can be somewhat trying when she is less comfortable than she is used to at home (which of course is expected when you travel :0)!) and he handled it with admirable professionalism and all of us were still thrilled she was able to make the trip with us and her grandchildren. Generally, the rest of us are a pretty low maintenance group so long as we keep the 11 year old fed. We saw some great wildlife and saw all of the big 5 except for the leopard who seemed ever elusive but of course that, I understand, is very common. We saw a huge pack of endangered wild dogs which thrilled everyone but especially our 11 year old. Eric was knowledgeable about the wildlife we saw and able to add a great deal of context/education/respect for the animals to everything we saw. I did notice that Eric uses tobacco products only because I work as a family medicine physician at home and admit I sometimes can't turn it off--hah hah. He was always discreet/respectful with this and it never affected our family or enjoyment of the tour though I hope he quits someday for his own well health. All in all, the trip was worth every penny and a highlight of our visit in South Africa.

Amazing Safari Experience All-Around
5/5

We traveled to South Africa in October '22, and immensely joined our time with the Wild Planet Safari crew. This trip was years in the making (we were meant to go in 2020), and Thale was beyond helpful in making it happen for us in 2022!

Our guide, Chris, was attentive, friendly, had a great sense of humor, and was incredibly knowledgeable! Chris could spot any animal, no matter the size, or time of day! We were so thankful to see so many beautiful animals - whether it was countless lions, giraffes, (baby) elephants, leopards, birds, or more. Every sighting is truly a privilege!

The vibe with the entire Wild Planet Safari crew felt very familial. We enjoyed a few family-style meals together with other safari goers, and the cooking felt even more special, being in the great outdoors. Every day, we loved the full safari experience starting before sunrise until sunset (with delicious meals in between).

Expect an unforgettable experience with lasting friendships thanks to the entire crew. I have a feeling we'll talk about this trip forever!
I'd highly recommend Wild Planet Safari, and would return to do another safari in a heartbeat!

Fantastic safari tour company and memorable trip!
5/5

This review is long in coming and the delay not a reflection of the service and time experienced!
My husband and I traveled to South Africa last October and had the great fortune of booking our 7-day safari trip with Wild Planet Safari.
From the very beginning, communications with Thale were prompt, very informative, professional and friendly.
At the start of our trip, we had some health issues that caused us to delay our trip by a couple of days. Thale was once again incredibly supportive and worked with us to coordinate alternative options while making sure we didn't miss out on our trip there.
Once at Kruger National Park, we met with our guide Chris who on a daily basis went out of his way to make sure that each outing was maximized and that we saw and experienced the wildlife as much as possible. Chris also catered to our every wish and humored us in taking the "not such traditional" perfect pictures, like of dead trees, rocks and whatever caught our eye in the moment! Not only was Chris a wealth of information about the wildlife, always providing interesting facts, but he is also an amazing cook! Every meal he prepared was amazing!
We had an excellent experience with Chris and Thale and look forward to the next opportunity when we can come back again with the rest of the family! Thank you Wild Planet Safari for the great vacation!!

A trip of a lifetime
5/5

I am incredibly grateful to everyone at Wild Planet Safari for an amazing trip this past October. We originally were supposed to visit in 2020 and Thale was amazing in helping us reschedule and work through any difficulties. Her kindness was truly appreciated.

We were blessed to have Chris as our guide for the 5 days and we consider ourselves so lucky. He took good care of us and answered all our questions. We saw so much, thanks to him and we felt very much like we made a good friend.

We loved having our private tour with also the opportunity to meet with our fellow travelers at breakfast or dinner on a few occasions.

Thank you to Ryan, Thale and Chris for everything. I will be back!!

Ryan is a super nice guy who felt like family by the end of our safari!
5/5

From the moment I spoke with Thale I knew I had made the right choice! She was so sweet and so helpful in planning our safari. She helped me figure out how many days I would need for what I wanted to see and do, all while making it incredibly affordable! She also suggested the walking safari which Is a must do! We did a 6 day safari and I will never forget it, Ever! Ryan was incredible and so knowledgeable about every animal, and man could that guy spot them! He just seemed to know the park like the back of his hand, where the animals would be and when they would be there. We got up before sunrise and hit the park for a few hours, came back to breakfast ready to be served to us, then hit the park again, came back to lunch served to us, then hit the park till sunset! Eat,Sleep,Safari 3 times a day!!! Ryan spotted every animal you could think of! We saw lions eating their kill and even saw a leopard hunt a Dyka and carry it up a tree! I will cherish the memories for the rest of my life! Africa will always have a piece of my heart because of the experience Ryan provided for us! Don’t wait… Just book it, you won’t regret it
