This was our 1st safari with Wildlife Encounters but it won't be our last!

We knew from our first correspondence with Judy, when we were trying to figure out which camp was the right fit for our family, that we were in good hands. Because we were traveling with younger children, we ended up staying at the Tuskers Safari Camp and basically had the place to ourselves. The camp is situated above a watering hole, and we spent countless hours mesmerized by the various animals that came and went right below us. It was amazing!
JD is an expert ranger and Vusi a very knowledgeable tracker. They not only found us a variety of wildlife (even the elusive leopard) but also spent time teaching our children all about the bush. From learning fun facts about the wildlife and terrain to stopping the jeep to look at different animal tracks, our kids had so many stories to tell their friends when we returned home.
The camp itself was clean and comfortable. Every meal prepared by Victory and her team was tasty and memorable. The staff went out of their way to make sure all our needs were met.
We can’t recommend Tuskers and Wildlife Encounters enough!

Judy and Bruce are super attentive and welcomed us very well. Their campsite is stunning and during our stay elephants were nearby and we were able to watch them from the "balcony" of our tent. Sabre is an incredible ranger and we got to see a lot of animals and learn a lot about the savannah and how it works. We highly recommend it.

I felt like I was part if the family!

If I could give more stars to Judy, Bruce, Sabre and Justin, I definitely would!
I picked the “Best of both worlds” tour and I dońt regret it! Even since de beginning, when booking the tour I felt I was being taken care of, Judy was so kind and so patient, and she made sure my tour was as incredible as I could imagine.
The second place I stayed at is Ndzuti Bush Camp, which is run my Judy and Bruce, and it was amazing, I felt so safe and so welcome there, it being a family business truly makes a difference! I even felt part of the family. And I can’t describe what it feels like to see the animals roaming free, it really changes your life. And Sabre does such an amazing job as a guide! She makes sure everyone is comfortable and happy and is always ready to answer your question. I don’t have enough words to describe what an amazing experience I had, I can’t wait to come back!

Great tour operator with incredible camp and guide!

Great bang for your buck on our safari. Six of us went and the camp plus guide (JD) were both amazing! Would definitely recommend!

Best trip of a lifetime!

From the time Judy contacted me, she was nothing short of helpful and provided us with advice and information to help us customise the trip to the needs of my family. With it being our first ever encounter from Singapore to Hoedspruit, Judy guided us and gave us tips, changing our itinerary countless times so that we could have the best possible experience ever.

Milima Big 5 was the lodge she chose for us, and beyond the 4 night stay we had there (that was simply nothing short of amazing!!!!), she also arranged our tours in the best way possible, with a mid-tour break to go to Kruger, and then to end it all with a trip to Moholoholo and Blyde River. Although these were not in the original quote that we had asked for, Judy went out of her way to suggest a variety so that we could see as much of Hoedspruit and experience the wildlife and nature in the most amazing way. The guides, staff and everyone we met were so warm, friendly and knowledgeable. The food was amazing and the level of care was indescribable. During our short stay in the bush, we encountered the Big 5 and so many more, with unforgettable experiences and a wealth of knowledge to take home with us.

It was a life-changing experience, and we will definitely return to be immersed in nature once again.

We booked our Safari Package with Judy and Bruce.

The Day Tour with Judy into Kruger was very nice and we learned a lot about african Wildlife.
We really enjoyed every Minute of our Trip, thank you very much

Had the most fantastic experience at nDzuti safari camp last week. Bruce and Judy couldn't have been more welcoming, even the herd of elephants arrived at the waterhole near our tent to say hello when we arrived. Troy, their son, was an amazing guide and found the elusive leopard and rhinos for us, as well as ellies, lions, hippo, giraffe, buffalo and many other animals! The food was outstanding and the sundowners at the end of a game drive went down a treat! We loved the rustic feel of the unfenced camp and the outdoor showers made it all feel very authentic and wild. We'll definitely be back soon!

Wildlife Encounters gave me the best experience I could have asked for.

I had an absolutely incredible time at nDzuti Bushcamp for so many reasons.

1) The Safari: because the bushcamp is in a quieter area of the reserve you can drive for hours without seeing another vehicle. It gives you a real sense of a private drive experience. The guides are absolute experts and had so much information to share. I was lucky enough to see 4 out of the big 5, as well as many other incredible animals on my 2-night stay.

2) The accommodation: with the verandas of the tents looking out at the watering hole, I was able to see so much wildlife just while chilling at the camp. Elephants, wild dogs, baboons and warthogs were just some of the animals that I saw from my tent. The tents themselves are also spacious, clean and have super comfy beds. Each tent also has its own ensuite bathroom where you can shower under the canopy of trees. For me this really added to the magic of the experience.

3) The food: Every meal I had at nDzuti was absolutely delicious and very filling.

4) The people: Judy and Bruce were lovely hosts and Sabre was an excellent guide. Although I happened to be the only guest at the camp at the time, I never felt lonely. They really made me feel welcome and I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know them. Additionally, all the on-site staff were very friendly and helpful.

Overall I would definitely recommend a stay at nDzuti Bushcamp. I hope to be back soon!
