A life changing experience with Wildlife Safaris

Our safari was amazing! Our guide, Hoppy, was SO knowledgeable about everything in Kruger — getting us to the right spots at the right time to see incredible animals. On the first day we were able to see 4 of the big 5 and found the 5th on the third day! We felt protected, secure, and well-looked after the whole time. The places we stayed were in beautiful spots with simple but comfortable and clean accommodations and friendly staff. Everything ran SO smoothly that we were able to just enjoy our trip without having to worry about anything. I would definitely use Wildlife Safaris again.

A very good experience with Wildlife Safaris

We had a wonderful safari. We appreciated very much the quality of the communication, very accurate and reactive. We had a great time with our guide Hoppy. We enjoyed the Sabi River Lodge, the localisation in front of the river, the rooms and most of all the quality of the “home made” meals.

Nick is an excellent guide; knowledgeable about animals, great driver, considerate, on time.

Safaris were spectacular! Trip was excellently planned and executed on time. So many interesting facts were shared, after finding so many interesting animals. Nick is an Amazing guide- full of facts and looked after us well! I liked the mix of car with Nick because it was tailored to us. Also liked going on the high Range Rover tours. The first place we stayed , Sabie River Bush lodge was ideal for comfort and seeing the funny hippos! Sun sets were fun. Pool was very refreshing. Meals were pretty good to excellent. Skukuza accommodation was simple but the beds were comfortable. Food excellent. We were thankful to have Lee along she knows all the animals, and she taught us how to barter. We had a lot of fun laughing with the two of them. Thank you to all, the trip was planned so well. Everything was smooth and relaxing, which was what we needed!

Henry was the kindest man and so knowledgeable about our safari

We had the best time with our group. Our tour guide, Henry, is the kindest man who really cared about making our experience memorable. His local knowledge was greatly appreciated when we traveled to restaurants, towns and villages. We had a group of five plus our tour guide. Having a small personable group made the experience so much better and we made friends of a lifetime. Highly recommend this group for your safari tour. Doing the panoramic route along with the safari did not disappoint and is a MYST see!! Trip of a lifetime!!! Thank you

Extremely attentive to guests needs and well organised.

From the moment we got picked up at our hotel to being dropped at the airport in Johannesburg our 4 day safari into the Kruger Park was superb. Our driver/guide/daily organiser, Barney, was friendly, knowledgeable, and keen to ensure we had a memorable time. Being an ex-Park Ranger, he knew a lot about the animals (including how to find them), the birds, and the flora, and fauna. We were happy that we got to see 4 of the top 5 up close with just the elusive Rhino being the only one we didn't see in the park - unfortunately most likely due to the ongoing poaching! The accommodation was comfortable and the meals great. It was great to stay in the park for a night and do a twilight safari as totally different to daytime viewing and no crowds! The company communicated with us well from the time we made an initial booking enquiry and provided us with all the information we required. We would definitely tour with them again! Thank-you Wildlife Safaris for a very memorable experience!!

Don't hesitate to book a safari with these guys. Amazing!

We ( 3 couples) had a 3 day safari, with Hoppy as our guide. He looked after us like a parent, collecting us from Jo'burg and driving for hours and hours to the KNP and around it and making sure we were OK at every stage. He knew where to go, identified over 30 birds for us, and we saw so many animals. Only a Leopard eluded us. He even stopped after spotting a tiny chameleon at the edge of the road! The open safari vehicle was an excellent way to see the game, and photograph them. So many shots of wild animals up close. Elephants, impala and giraffes galore, warthogs, waterbuck, kudu, buffalo, wildebeeste, crocs, hippos, and on our final day, a lion and eventually rhino, sable, eland and gemsbok. We spent about 25 hours over those 3 days being driven around. It sounds like alot but it passed so quickly and comfortably. Even when the animals were hiding, driving around the African bush with a warm breeze in your face was delightful.
The attention to detail in our care was exceptional, and Hoppy knew so much about the animals and birds, and about the park in general. The breakfasts at Sabie River Lodge and Skukusa were amazing and the accommodation at Sabie River was delightful; Skukusa was a little more basic but comfortable. Getting up at 5am for early morning game drives seemed no hardship. We had a truly wonderful time. Thank you guys, and huge thanks to Hoppy. Our Safari finished a week ago, and I'm still dreaming of those elephants and giraffes!!

Fantastic, well organized experience

The communication throughout the booking process and arranging all of the logistics was very clear and straightforward with no issues. Everything was on time, well planned out, and delivered against what was described. Our guide, Henry, was wonderful and was such a joy to learn more about the region from someone so passionate about what they do.

Great experience!

The tour was great and it was completely worth it.
We had an awesome time in Kruger Nationalpark and Simon Taylor was the best guide.
We saw a lot of animals and he explained very interesting information about each animal.
I highly recommend the tour.

Exclusive and professional experience

We toured the Kruger park with our own experienced and very knowledgable guide for three days, which was great. I would highly recommend our guide, Nick Snyman and Wildlife Safaris. We were lucky enough to see lions, elephants, giraffes and other amazing animals at close range several times. Nick’s background knowledge and care for us added so much to this memorable experience.

Great Safari Experience

We did a 4 Day Krüger Tour in March 2023. Everything was well organized and Barney was a great guide who even drove the extra mile to show us a Rhino. We saw many animals and all the big 5. Accommodation and Food were good as well. We liked the fact that we stayed at different lodges and got to see different parts of the park.
So, we definitely recommend this Tour!
