Caring and informative
Amazing service and communication before the trip, answer all the questions and worries not only about safari, but South Africa in general. Good locations for accommodation, comfortable minibus, knowledgeable guides, helpful drivers, good service during the trip. Reliable provider!

A amazing experience
We had five fantastic days with Hoppy in Kruger. Everything was precisely planned and organized. We saw far more than we expected when we arrived and had a fantastic time. I will strongly recommend this company to anybody who are considering a safari. They communicated well and answered all of our questions.

My mother and I booked with Wildlife Safaris for a 4 day tour through Kruger. We had a great time and especially loved our guide Hoppy. Accomodation was good. Food at the included restaurants was very good. The group size of four people was perfect and our guide was obliging to stop for us whenever we wished to take a photo. Cons were that we thought the first day of driving through the mountains to get to Kruger was very long and overrated . The safari vehicle was good but would have liked some blankets and or wind protection supplied as we were freezing in the wind.

Kruger: the big five plus so much more
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our safari! The arrangements were easy and professional. Our luck (Clive's skill) was amazing. The weather was great, our animal sightings were up-close and frequent, the accommodations were fun and the food was great! It was more than we expected in many ways, but most of all it was fun and relaxing.

confortable and safe
we did the Kruger Park Safari Tour in September. The guide Susan is an excelent guide, very professional and kind. Generally speaking, we are not disappointed about the tour experience but we didn't like to change 2 restcamps in 2 days (SKUKUZA and PRETORIUS) and in particular, we didn t like PRETORIUS Camp (where we didn t find restaurants but just a WIMPY!). The price of the tour is too expensive for this poor options.

Hello Aldo ,
We appreciate your comments following the Kruger Park safari .
Re overnight stops on the itinerary you chose - we usually arrange both nights at the same camp in Kruger & I agree its inconvenient having to pack-up & change camps . However , in high season such as Sept , we face constant problems finding suitable chalets on the dates required . We are contracted to National Park & governed by their rules which prevent us holding surplus chalets for the benefit of overseas visitors . Reservations open almost 1 year ahead of expected arrival & many bookings are placed several months in advance . However we can now book online 24/7 which is a big advantage .
Meals - I am sure Susan told you that National Parks have decided to partner with franchised South African family restaurants ( such as Mugg & Bean , Wimpy & Debonairs ) to manage their restaurants in the main Camps at Kruger . These restaurants have only opened during recent months & I have read several negative reviews about Wimpy in our local press . As Tour Operators , we can decide to avoid staying at Pretoriuskop or suggest to the guide that he does a barbeque . We have certainly noted your remarks .
I hope you have some wonderful photos to remember your safari .
Kind regards Christine

With Wildlife Safaris you are in good hands
My son and I did the 4 day classic Safari. From the first exchanges, through the Q&As, organisational aspects, paperwork and tour itself Wildlife Safaris were responsive, helpful and very professional. We were a group of 6. Hoppy was a great guide, very friendly and good humoured. He was worried that the food at the camp might not be good, but it was perfect. We saw all the big five, and much more: cheetah, hyenas....Standard accommodation (bungalows) was well equipped and tidy. Weather was cold in the morning and evening and pleasant during the day. Day 4 consisted mainly in a quick last safari on the way out, breakfast and travel back. Hoppy is a fast driver who should keep more distance with the vehicles in front. I am satisfied with Wildlifesafaris and happily recommend them.

An exciting and educational tour with a highly experienced guide.
Wildlife Safaris was very good value with ample opportunities to spot the wildlife while enjoying comfortable accommodation and hearty meals right inside Kruger National Park. Nick our guide was friendly, courteous and very knowledgeable.
