Family friendly and budget friendly - a great sampling of all that the area can offer!

We felt secure in the organization of the program - did not have to worry about tiring organizational details as we felt that we were looked out for and informed when needed. Our kids were treated with patience and kindness- means loads when traveling in rustic conditions like meeting an elephant in the bush!

Incredible experience!!! :)

We had an amazing experience! We spent 4 nights with them: 1 in Tremisana lodge and the other 3 at Katikana lodge. I want to point out Elias as guide and the quality of the services in Katikana. Joanne and Mira were very kind and generous with us. They help us with everything and the food was incredible every single day. Thanks for this fantastic experience! Kruger Park game drive was grate as all the other activities. We were able to see a lot of animals very close! An experience to be repeated, no doubt!

Unforgettable experience !

Thank you all for the wonderful and unforgettable moments that we spent with you guys. As a first safari and big five game drive experience for my girlfriend and I, we could not expect better experience. The organization is perfect, Viva Safari really takes care of its guests, so you can fully rest and enjoy your Safari. I will definitively recommend Viva Safari to my family and friends !

6 Day Kruger Safari

I decided to travel last minute to South Africa and I am so pleased that I picked to travel with Viva Safaris. As I was by myself, I was slightly apprehensive about the trip however the guides and drivers of Viva made me feel so welcome - as did the wonderful group of travelers I managed to meet on various game drives. The trip was really well organised - would thoroughly recommend!

A Wonderful Safari Adventure from A to Z (A-mazing A-nimals to Zzz's great lodges)!

Viva Safaris exceeded all of our expectations! It was so wonderful that Viva Safaris picked us up from our home in Johannesburg and provided travel all the way to and back from the safari. The drivers were friendly and very professional. The group had a great lunch on the ride there and back and the opportunity for great photo ops at the beautiful Blyde River Canyon! The stay at both lodges was fantastic... beautiful scenery, clean comfortable rooms, delicious meals and a wonderful staff. All of the safari adventures were exciting. The animal sightings during the spotlighting tour was a bit scarce, but the entire experience was still wonderful, and we saw all of the Big Five the next day at the Kruger Park safari tour! The only thing I would change is not staying for one more night. :) Money very well spent! We can't wait to come back!

Beyond Expectations!

Our safari was amazing! The guide was punctual, polite and knowledgeable. Within a few hours we had sighted all of the Big 5! The day was one which I shall treasure forever.

Experience of a lifetime!

There are a huge and overwhelming number of options when researching a safari to Kruger: I can say without hesitation that you will not be disappointed on a trip arranged by Viva Safaris! I very much enjoyed my stay at Mark's Treehouse camp: the staff were very friendly and professional, and the trips to Kruger and surrounding game reserves very well organized. We saw all of the big five in one day! Loved it!

Amazing trip

We did the 5 day safari with Viva Safari. The first night was Tremisana Game Lodge. This is an good quality for the price. The rooms are basic but complete and clean. As for the staff, they are great !!! Whether guides, drivers or staff of the lodge, all are very friendly. We particularly enjoyed the guides (Rex and ) who made the Bush walk with us, what an experience !!! All the other activities were really great and for a first safari it's perfect.

After that, we stayed at Katekani Tented Lodge. Our stay there was amazing and I recommend this wonderful place without any hesitation.

It is a small camp with 4 bedroom (and 2 other building), very quiet and cozy. The rooms are gorgeous, very well equipped and the beds are very comfortable. You cannot feel that your are sleeping in tents.Elena is an amazing host. She is very dedicated and made sure our stay unforgettable. She is an excellent cook, every meal was a delight. All meals were prepared according to our tastes and preferences. We really enjoyed our trip with Viva safari.
