Amazing Kruger Tour

We booked two transfers and a two days/one night Kruger Tour with Khalanga safaris and everything – from the planning and booking with their team, which was very quick to answer all emails and helpful to customize our tour, to our transfer back to the airport everything was perfect. We were always picked up on time and the vehicles were all in tip top condition with cosy blankets on the game drive vehicle. Shoes, who was our fabulous guide in Kruger Park, is extremely passionate about wildlife and answered all our questions patiently and with a great knowledge about the animals, flora and the history of Kruger! He always gave us plenty of time to watch the animals without rushing around and he knew the roads where we could spot lots of animals and see spectacular landscapes. All the time he was such a great and exceptionally friendly company for us and even after a long day driving around in Kruger he prepared a fantastic vegan braai for us!

Thanks a lot - we had an amazing time and we can highly recommend Khalanga Safaris :- )!

Absolutely Amazing!

From the beginning we had great communication fromKhalanga safaris helping us to organise our trip. The suggestions of which camps to stay in to best suit our dates and get the best value of animals was much appreciated. Shoes picked us up in Hazyview and we just had the best trip with him for 5 days through Kruger Park. He was a fabulous guide, who is a true local, so he just knew it backwards. We saw many animals every day, and in particular, the big 5 in one day which was just awesome! Lots of laugh and lots of fun and adventure made the trip just so much better. Shoes is also an awesome cook and we shared a great braai. We got up close and personal with so many animals every day that it was an experience we will never forget.

Transfer and Safari

The company is characterized by reliability, punctuality, willingness to communicate and competent employees. We were reliably picked up from the airport and brought to our lodge - as exemplary as the transfer back! The Safariausfug in the Kruger Park was well organized and very worthwhile!
Khalanga is for us the best company on the ground - any time again!

Amazing !

We travelled as 1 x couple and 1x family of 4 thru Kruger for 4 nights with Shoes as our guide. From planning to the end of the trip we have received first class treatment . I know they can’t control the animals you see but we got Big 5 in one day and learnt so much . Shoes adapted each day to meet our families’ needs. He makes you feel v safe and is funny and engaging and I can’t wait to see him again . Could not fault . Thank goodness we found these guys. Oh and he’s a great cook ! Excellent braai dinner one night !

Back again for second time !!

We were fortunate to be able to book "Shoes" for a second private vehicle Kruger day trip in a month with another lot of overseas guests.
It is with piece of mind knowing that the level of service and commitment is outstanding. Our friend was so impressed with Shoes communication and knowledge. Shoes has the ability to know how long to sit at each sighting to ensure all guests are kept happy, and to maximise the "Bush" experience. With this knowledge and patience and positioning of his vehicle resulted in us being able to see a lion hunt and kill impala. Shoes was very accommodating with our requests. From start to finish of the day we could not fault.

What a find !!!

Our private vehicle day trip in Kruger Park was 10/10. Shoes spoke very good English and we were able to understand the valuable knowledge that he was providing. The game viewer is in excellent condition. We were thrilled with our sightings and he was able to deliver the Big 5 in one day, which is extremely difficult. We will be using him again.

Amazing experience! Khalanga Safaris was the best choice for Safari! Their people know exactly where are the animals and they are very kind! Thank you for everything.

Excellent Service and Hospitality

Khalanga Safaris provided me and my friends an amazing experience in and around Kruger Park. I highly recommend them to anyone thinking of booking. You won't regret it. I even was able to book a vehicle for myself for some specific photo work I wanted to accomplish in the park. Everything was handled professionally, promptly, and with a smile.

Absolutely Incredible!

I had the most incredible time with Khalanga Safaris. I am a South African myself, and grew up going to the Kruger. I moved to the states and on my trip home to visit I was lucky enough to book a trip with Khalanga. John, aka Shoes, was my guide and driver and he was fantastic. He was friendly, engaging, professional, very knowledgeable and knew exactly where to go to make this the best trip to the Kruger ever! Within five hours I had seen the Big 5 and cheetah. It was an emotional homecoming to the Kruger and Khalanga did not disappoint. I would recommend them to anybody and will use them again when I come home. Could not have been happier!

Amazing and Friendliest Tour Guide. Highly Recommended!

Shoes was not only a tour guide but was a friend to us by the end of our trip. We did not have a car during our trip to Hoedspruit and had depended on your operators to get us around. We tried others but Shoes we felt was the best. He was patient and never watched the time. And always ensured he gave us all the details and information he could. I highly recommend him to those who are unsure of who to hire. Best of all his prices were better than the others.
