Tour operator with professionality and love for nature!
Shoes is an abolute professional. This was clear from the first minute we met him.
He picked us up in our lodge and after a drive of one hour we arrived at Ophan Gate / Kruger N.P.
Every meter of the safari was excellent. Shoes showed us everything. He saw all the big and the small animals in the parks. He has an outstanding knowledge about birds, mammals and landscape of Kruger.
He operates a small family company and it was very clear that he is his own boss who wants to make his customers happy.
Thanks for that!

Shoes knows how to do a real safari!
A safari of 5 unforgettable days. We have seen and done so much. From the Blyde canyon to almost every point of the Kruger Park. The big five is not difficult to find with Khalanga safaris. Shoes always knows how to find the beautiful spots for the sunsets!
At the end of the day shoes cooked for us, we got traditional south african dishes and were delicious. Certainly the breakfast was very extensive.
In summary, if you want to do a safari without worrying about safety, food, Big 5 then Khalanga Safaris is the best option!

Fantastic safari with Khalanga!
We chose Khalanga to organize a safari for us and our three older teens. What a great choice! Shoes took our requests and coordinated a fabulous 5-day trip for us. We stayed at Olifants (amazing view over the river valley) and Talamati in Kruger National Park and Tshukudu, a private reserve in Greater Kruger. We enjoyed the boat cruise in Blyde River Canyon as well. Our group had so much fun learning from Shoes and joking around. He grew up in the area, knows lots of people and has much knowledge to share with his guests. The food was wonderful and he catered to the vegetarians, meat eaters and dairy-allergic in our party. We enjoyed spending time with his family as well. I highly recommend Khalanga for an affordable custom safari to the Kruger area!

Our second time and could happily do a third
We did a 5 night trip through Kruger with a group of 6 friends/family and we had Donald as our guide.
From pick up to drop off everything was perfect. Donald was so knowledgeable and friendly and not only did we have some amazing sightings (leopard at the car on day 1!!) but we had a really fun time with lots of laughs. We have done this trip twice now and would highly recommend to anyone wanting an affordable, professional trip to one of the best places on earth.

Everything went smoothly, from the first contact to the start of the tour. Explanation were clear.
We were 6 friends, 3 couples. Everything went smoothly, from the first contact when we got the explanation of the tour. Shoes listened to our specific request for a wedding anniversary and responded perfectly. Great communication before and during the tour.
Unfortunately Shoes was not available for personal reason but a friend of him, Donald, took extra care of us and we had a wonderful time.
I highly recommend taking a tour with Khalanga and big thank to Donald who made sure to make our experience and trip a thing to be remembered.

Amazing private safari!
We had an amazing private safari with Shoes and our guide Donald. As of the first email, Shoes was very quick to reply and to address our questions and concerns. Shoes was our guide for the Panorama route and has shared with us so much about the country and culture!
Our 6 day safari was truly outstanding! Donald, our guide, has such a vast knowledge of the wildlife and the Kruger NP. He was able to maximise our experience by carefully planning out routes every day and it truly felt like he knew every road and every turn in Kruger. Donald really is a wildlife expert, he understands the behaviour of animals, and you can also feel that he really enjoys what he is doing. It was simply fascinating to us how he was able to spot animals, where we would have completely missed them. He also communicated with other guides, which is always helpful. Thanks to Donald, we were able to enjoy some absolutely unique unforgettable moments, like seeing a cheetah with her babies or a couple of rhinos up close or a leopard walking on the road and so much more.
Besides this, Donald is a great cook and we’ve enjoyed warm tasty local cuisine every day.
Thank you so much, Donald and Shoes for an outstanding experience!!

The tour was amazing from start to finish! They communicated everything before we even had to ask, which was greatly appreciated. Donald, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable about the animals and was excellent at spotting them - we were lucky he spotted a Leopard in a tree on our last day, and we were also fortunate to see a cheetah! He was great at pointing out and explaining the different animals we saw and was all around very friendly and personable as well. Donald was also a great cook, which was an added bonus!! And they were great about my sister’s dairy allergy ( they checked with us about allergies before). We absolutely recommend this tour to anyone looking to have an amazing experience visiting Kruger!!

Kruger safari tour
Our Safari tour with Kalanga was overall an excellent experience. Like any 4-5 day tour some aspects didn’t go quite as planned but the staff at Kalanga were very quick to respond. They tailored the tour slightly to suit our needs and accommodated us when we made special requests. The tour guide spoke with excellent English and was very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend them.

Shoes was an incredible safari guide! His love for the land and the animals was apparent in his actions and his words. I would explain my experience on safari as a spiritual one.
Shoes also has such a wonderful teaching ability, teaching us about the animals, the land, and it’s history. He has a gentle soul that exudes positivity.
Additionally he’s an amazing cook. You will absolutely not be disappointed by booking with shoes. You will know your money will go towards conservation and preservation of the land, and you will have a once in a lifetime experience.

Shoes, the owner and operator of Khalanga safari is absolutely PHENOMENAL
My friend and I booked a 5 day safari with Khalanga and were absolutely BLOWN away!! Shoes was our guide, and from the very first contact we were so impressed with his professionalism. He helped coordinate our private safari via email, he was very quick to reply and so helpful coordinating and planning a safari exactly to our meet our requests/desires. When we arrived and started the tour with Shoes we quickly realized that there was no one better than Shoes!! He was so very passionate about the beautiful park and animals, he taught us so much about the flora and fauna and shared with us his knowledge, expertise and passion for conservation. We were so grateful to learn about his ancestral land and the Khalanga peoples. Shoes is such a lovely and joyous personality! He is also an incredible cook!! This trip was truly the best vacation of our lives - it was so much better than our wildest dreams. I recommend Khalanga safaris and Shoes 100%!!!! Book with this company, you will not be disappointed!
