Superb experience

It took me a long time and a lot of research to finally pick the company with which I'd have my first ever safari experience, and Viva Safaris did not disappoint. From the get-go, what stood out to me was the clear and efficient communication from Patti. I chose the 5 day package at Tremisana Lodge; was picked up and dropped off at my Josburg location. Guides and rangers were the best - friendly, helping, and willing to give their best to provide us with the best experience. The rooms in Tremisana were clean and comfortable, and the food was to die for! All employees were warm and welcoming. My days at the Kruger and Balule Reserve couldn't have been better, got to see the big 5 and many more. I highly recommend Viva Safaris, professionalism at its finest. Thanks for a memorable trip.

Profesional, friendy - great experience

We booked a 5 day Safari trip by Viva Safaris. Picked up and dropped at the airport. The restaurant, selected for the midway stop was great - kudos for that.
The rooms were small but OK, all what you need in such action packed days :)
My personal favourite was the pool!
The drives were great, special shoutout to Mark (full of knowledge, friendly, answering all the details,..He also came out of his way to make sure all is going well with us during his off hours) and KG (funny, lots of local knowledge, dedicated,..). We saw all the animals we could possibly want to see during our time in the Greater Kruger Area - the cheetah spotting by KG was a thing of a real expert!

The rest of the staff was also friendly and helpful - when a member of our group forgot her mobile phone in the Land Rover the hostess/manager jumped on the case immidiately and made sure the situation will be resolved.

Special thanks to Mama Bella for great food, kindness and a lot of "can i have one more please"! :)

Sincerly reccomended..

Kind, efficient, amazing

The safari was amazing! First, because the contact with Patti was instrumental: thank you so much Patti for your kind advice (including the hotel choice, which proved perfect for our stay). I had asked for several quotes for safaris and chose Viva Safaris because of Patti. The logistics throughout were seamless. This was all the more amazing and essential that I was travelling on my own with my 5 YO daughter. The lodge was beautiful, we loved the food...and foremost the staff and the wonderful guides. I felt at peace for the first time in a long time during our day at the Kruger. I took loads of pictures to make sure that my 5 YO daughter remembers this trip - which was our first big adventure together.

Excellent customer service

Amazing experience. The tour guides went out of their way to make the my safari memorable with up close and personal encounters with wildlife and were knowledgeable in understanding the land and behaviors of animals. I cant recommend this tour company enough.

A dream

It was a dream. The lodge is quiet , in the middle of the bush , and from the Lapa during lunch or dinner you can spot elephants, hyenas antelopes.
the staff are friendly and efficient, and the guides are fantastic. the Morning walk was a beautiful and instructive experience.
Thank you for everything
