5/5

From the get go I felt so at ease, it was definitely the right choice I made choosing SWU. The service was excellent from the day I arrived to the day I left, it was an amazing experience from having the best drivers to learning about amazing things along the way! I’d definitely recommend to my friends and family

From start to finish, Safari with Us was wonderful!
5/5

I cannot say enough about our experiences with Safari with Us. All of the booking was done with Andre whose communication with us was timely and thorough. I did a lot of research to make sure the trip was a good value and that it fit our needs. He was able to modify the trip as opposed to having us do a "one size fits all" tour.
When we arrived in Capetown our guide, Machiel, met us at the airport. For 11 days he took us from Capetown through the Garden Route to Port Elizabeth. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. He was incredibly knowledgeable about every piece of the trip from food options to flora and fauna to culture to animal sightings to last minute side-trips. He was continually pleasant and upbeat. He didn't simply bring us places, he led us through a completely wonderful exploration of all things South Africa. He had great advice about modifications during 2 rainy days. He added in the extras that made our trip unique, affordable and more than we could imagine. I wish everyone could experience what we did. It was perfect.

You have a friend in Andre!
5/5

My dealings with Andre started when I inquired about a Kruger safari. He soon became my go to person for all things travel. Namely, where to stay, what tour to book. He even helped me with a domestic airine booking (its cheaper if you buy locally). We became such good friends that he even met me at the airport just to meet up with me (No charge). In a world of uncertainty, Andre demonstrates rock solid service. My daughter had left a sweater at one of the resort, Andre was reaching out to us and making arrangements for its return, before we even found out it was missing. I could carry on but I want to end by saying I will always have a spare bed for my friend Andre at my house! Thank you for everything, Andre!

Excellent and the most efficient service
5/5

I visited Africa 10 times starting from 2001. Safari With Us arranged my African travels starting in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2022. I traveled with them to South Africa, Botswana and Namibia and plan to do trips to Tanzania in July 2022 and (again) South Africa in September 2022. Every time, their service was absolutely excellent. Their response to emails were almost immediate and professional. Great many thanks to Andre, Debby and Thabo!

Very pleasant, efficient, eventful and wonderful accomodations.
5/5

We originally booked a 3 day Kruger Adventure Safari trip and had such a nice time we adjusted our vacation to include an extra day! The game drives were one of a kind, spotting more wildlife than we would have ever anticipated from leopards to wild dogs. The accomodations for the "budget safari" were beautiful tents with AC, a walk in tiled bathroom and a nice front porch. The area was surrounded by vervet mokeys, a nice pool and a lovely deck. The food was way above our expectations; breakfast lunch and dinner. They even accomodated a local game BBQ upon request. Everyone was incredibly hospitable and kind. It was a paradise for us. HIGHLY recommend the night game drive in Sabi Sand (a private game reserve nearby) and the Panorama tour (Benele our driver was the best!!).

Very helpful, flexible and responds quickly
5/5

The communication was top notch. We even got flexible offers tailored to us. We were even picked up directly at our apartment. On site everything was also wonderful, the food good, the safaris and drivers nice and generally a very good value package.

Fantastic safari experience
5/5

I had booked a 3D/2N safari with Safari With Us which was a fantastic experience from the intial contact to my stay in Kruger NP. Andre was very responsive and helpful and patiently answered all my questions. The tour itself was very well organized, great accommodations and very fun and enthusiastic guides and staff. I can highly recommend booking via Safari With Us and hope to be back myself soon!

All arrangements/activities exceeded our expectations!
5/5

We had excellent experiences with all the arranged tours and transfers, for our first visit to South Africa. Andre and the agency were very patient during the process as I navigated how best to coordinate my dates for the activities.

Our first adventure was for a trip to Addo via transport from Port Elizabeth. The transfer was enjoyable as our driver was very friendly and shared his knowledge of the area. The accommodations at the lodge in Addo were wonderful, as were all the staff and the dining hall offerings. Our safari guide Donald in Addo was fantastic, and incredibly knowledgeable and we had such a great day with him. Our additional tours by canoe, and on ATV’s with Chris were also exceptional, even while experiencing a locust swarm! I would definitely return and repeat those visits/tours.

Our time at Kruger went equally as smoothly. Comfortable transfer, great lodge with warm friendly staff and delicious meals also. Our safari experiences there were also very fulfilling and exceeded our expectations. for a “budget” safari we saw the big five on our first trip and left having seen an incredible total of 34 lions during our stay!

I plan to book again with Safari With Us in the future for return trips to S Africa and further! They were so easy to work with and were very patient and communicative in addition to setting us up with top notch services and accommodations at reasonable prices.

Friendly
5/5

My 7 friends and I booked a 4-day Kruger safari with safariwithus over our break and absolutely loved it! Andre was super helpful and communicative and made planning our trip seamless. With the inclusion of transportation to and from Kruger, the accommodation and meals, and the safari, this trip was certainly worth the price. It was very nice having safariwithus organize and plan our entire trip as it made for a stress-free process that we all really appreciated. All the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful and made our stay in Hazyview and the drives very comfortable.

The safari drives were planned perfectly in our opinion as we were able to spend a lot of time in Kruger and see an abundance of wildlife (saw 4 out of the big 5!) while still having some down time back at the lodge. The drive down the panorama route was also an amazing addition! The sites on that tour were absolutely breathtaking and we were very grateful to have had the opportunity to see all that we did. Overall, we had an amazing experience and I highly recommend this tour to anyone who would like a seamless, all-inclusive tour of Kruger!
