Everything was running smoothly.

I booked a tour with Safari with US ( for our family of 4. We had a great experience. We were picked up and dropped off at a hotel in Johannesburg. We were accommodated in Hazyview, the accommodation was pleasant, the children also enjoyed the pool. We saw 4 of the 5 big ones on safari. We also went to Panorama tour, the Blyde river canynon. Our guides were all very nice. I woul recommend their services.

Reliable operator for a reasonable price.

We had an amazing experience in Kruger National Park, seeing a lot of different wild animals. Value for money was very good, and we got vegan food wich was a huge plus! The Adventure Lodge was beautiful and pleasant, tha staff also made a nice honeymoon surprize in our room. Thank you!

Professional, helpful and reliable. I booked a 4 day Manyeleti safari and it was great.

I travelled in the safari shuttle from Johannesburg to Hoedspruit. It was a long 6 hour drive but but not boring.
There are other guests to talk to and some interesting stops along the way including a stop at a quaint farm stall where you can also buy refreshments and local produce.

When we arrived at the Kamogelo center in Hoedspruit my guide Mpho was waiting for me. My real safari adventure began as we entered the Manyeleti game reserve. We were welcomed by velvet monkeys, Nyala buck and baboons. I had a sense of wild excitement.

I was told Manyeleti (place of the stars) is geographically part of Kruger but the area of land known as Manyeleti is owned by the Mnisi tribe and the reserve is managed separately by the local tourism authority. I stayed at the Main camp. They have camping facilities as well as chalets and some dodgy fencing. Main camp is a bit raw and wild. If you like luxury, fancy lawns and fountains, main camp is not for you. If you like raw and authentic it is. Even though some buildings were dilapidated the main structures such as the chalets, restaurant and pool area were in good condition.

The game drives were fantastic. We saw a pride of lions, bull elephants facing off at the dam, crocodile at the waters edge and some hippos. Manyeleti is a vast reserve and there are times you can drive for several minutes without seeing anything other than the landscape. But sooner or later there will be surprise such as a leopard in a tree or large groups of antelope.

Birdlife is also abundant. At camp i enjoyed watching the blue wax bills hopping around and i was delighted to see the famous yellow billed hornbill. One night a hyena came into the camp and caused some consternation among guests.

I enjoyed all elements of my safari. The accommodation was basic but comfortable. But most importantly things that need to work such as hot water, lights and refrigeration did work. My guide Mpho was also great.

The booking process and organization of my safari was also smooth and professional.

I can recommend Manyeleti as an authentic safari experience with excellent game viewing.
I can recommend Safari With Us as a professional and trustworthy operator.

Great value, clear communication

We really enjoyed our Safari with Safari With Us! The communication was clear throughout the trip, and the staff at Kruger Adventure Lodge was so friendly and accommodating. For a 4-day Safari/Panorama Route experience, this was great value for money. Having a company to coordinate the transfers and communication with the lodge was really convenient and allowed us to focus more on the experience rather than the logistics.

Introduced to the wonders of the Garden Route by an excellent Guide

Coming into Cape Town after a 5 week research expedition at sea and had a few days to get from there to Gqerberha for a meeting. Emailed Safari With Us from the ship and asked if they could put together a bespoke 3 day (2 night) Garden Route tour. What followed was a truly great trip, as our guide, Machiel, was extremely knowledgeable of the area and we were able to experience many of the attractions of the Garden Route despite only having a few days. Stayed in a picturesque B&B in Wilderness, which was right on the beach with amazing sunset. 2nd night was in a real nice place in Stormsrivier. Tour highlights included the game reserve at Botlierskop (Elephants, Giraffes, Lions, Zebra etc), the seal colony at Robberg (Seals, Great Whites and Southern Right Whales), views overlooking Knysna, walking tracks in Nature's Valley and Tsitsikamma National Park and last but not least, Lunch in Jeffreys Bay surrounded by walls and ceiling filled with classic Surf memorabilia. Simply a great trip! Looking forward to coming back to South Africa again in the future and taking some more time to do another trip with Safari With Us.

Excellent and efficient as usual

I always book my African travels via SafariWithUs. This was already my 6th travel with this company (2017, 2018, 2019, and 2 times in 2022) - South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Tanzania. Andre and team are extremely efficient, friendly and responsive. This last time they arranged for us stay in Umkumbe Bush lodge in Sabie Sands and this was a great experience. The rates are quite reasonable and SafariWithUs accommodates all your needs. I, personally, plan to book with them at least two African trips next year.

We booked a 4 day service with Safari with Us from Spain and were worried about the reliability of the service. They were much cheaper than some other quotes received but this is just proof of the fact others are keen to take your money for being tourists. Andre and his team are there for you and go the extra mile with every possible request you could have. Thabo was a great driver and very friendly, making us feel comfortable from the first moment we met him. We were taken from our airport hotel at OR Tambo to Manyane in Pilanesburg nature reserve, had several game drives, a transfer to Sun City, another game drive and then return transfer to OR Tambo, all taken care of by Andre, along with corresponding accommodation reservations. Andre was always available on WhatsApp and his email replying was also exceptionally fast. 110% recommended and my wife has already started to recommend him even to friends in SA!! Don’t doubt and use this company. You won’t be disappointed!

Very nice people that do take care of you!

We had a really good experience. The safari started from a trip from Tambo airport to Kruger park. We instantly got help from the organisation to get in the right bus and had a pleasant trip. When arrived at Kruger, we were immediately taken to the Lodges. People at the lodges were very kind and enthusiastic. Breakfast was good and dinner as well (would recommend taking soups, T-bone steak/Vegetarian pasta and Apple crumble). Safari itself was great, saw all the big 5 in two days time.. Thanks for the experience, Joep

Great service and very friendly and helpful

Luxury Safari in the Waterberg

Myself and my fiancé enjoyed a weekend at Molapo Lodge in the Waterberg Biosphere in Limpopo. Everything was well organized, and Molapo was a unique experience. The service at the lodge was beyond 5 star. We saw a variety of animals and enjoyed a lovely bush walk, saw bushman paintings and enjoyed a picknick at the waterfall. Safari With Us was very helpful in arranging this safari. I will definitely recommend this safari to anyone who enjoys nature while staying in a luxury lodge.
