Excellent Customer Service
5/5

I took my family on safari and we chose Viva Safaris to make our arrangements. We thoroughly enjoyed our safari and our accommodations. The staff was very professional and kind. Victor and Preti did an awesome job of making us feel welcomed and appreciated. Thank you for the good service.

An unforgettable experience ... just amazing!
5/5

The communication from the start was great, with a lovely lady called Rochelle, if I had an enquiry about the booking she would respond quickly and no longer than within 12-24 hours.

The Safari- The structure of the days were planned very well, and there was a good mix of game reserves and Kruger. All guides with Viva safaris were fantastic and stayed professional. Nico was great, very knowledgable and so enthusiastic, he made us laugh. Victor who worked at Marc's Treehouse Lodge who we didn't see that often but when we did he was always smiling, very happy chap and had some great stories to tell on our bush walk. What I will say is on the final day instead of the bush walk, one last early morning game drive pups have finished it off perfectly before the drive back to Johannesburg. As the travelling days are classed as Safari days.

This trip was for our honeymoon and it was certainly one to remember!! Katekani Lodge where we stayed for 2 night following our lodge at Tremisana was just incredible (review left on TripAdvisor) everything about it was amazing, from the staff to the area, the comfort of rooms, the food with our own chef! Couldn't have wish for a better honeymoon but just wished we had longer!

A huge thank you to all of the Viva Safari team, we hope to visit again in the future.

Well organized operation with friendly staff. They really get the job done! Fed us well, we saw the animals, and all of the guides, cooks, and drivers were lovely.

Great Experience with 4-Day Safari
5/5

I just returned from a 4-day safari with Viva Safaris, spending time at the Tremisana and Katekani Lodges. Overall, Viva did a great job. There were lots of drive and walk opportunities and I was always busy. Meals were great and staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The Katekani Lodge is especially wonderful and I highly recommend it.

One of the most profound experiences of my life was spent with Viva Safaris!
5/5

My daughter, who had recently graduated from college, and I spent six wonderful days with Viva Safaris last July. We both were impressed immediately with the correspondence leading up to our trip, the arrangement to be picked up at our hostel in Joburg, and the perfection with our entire trip. The accomodations were clean and comfortable, the grounds were beautiful, the food was great, the guides were friendly and knowledgeable and took great care in making sure we saw as much as possible. We took advantage of every drive offered...even 5am drives that we weren't scheduled to take, if there were extra seats! I loved seeing not only animals, but birds too, and the guides were more than happy to point them out and stop to let me photograph them. On one day in Kruger we saw the Big 5 all before noon! We just can't say enough about the great experience we had and highly recommend it!

Very reasonably priced and well run
5/5

My husband and I wanted to experience a safari that was not outrageously priced and I found Viva Safaris. We had a wonderful experience with them. The guides were great and the food was excellent. They had activities all the time, which was included in the price. We definitely recommend them.

Great Experience!
5/5

My fiancee and I booked a three day lodge safari tour including a day at the Blyde river canyon.
We were really looking forward to an experience of a lifetime and we weren't disappointed!
The whole tour was well organised from the pick up at our hotel, to the daily long drives deep into the savannah up to the drop off back to our hotel again. All the drivers and guides were extremely friendly and provided plenty of information throughout our tour. The river canyon trip, while short, was worth the visit and provided stunning views of the river down below!
We didn't manage to see lions and so we are planning to use viva safaris again to complete our big five game!
