Responsive, Reliable and Reassuring
Stanley Shongwe responded rapidly to our quote request, to our requests for recommendations of a safari experience that would suit our needs, and he stayed in touch with us by whatsapp throughout our time under his itinerary. It was reassuring to know he was on hand to ensure our plans ran smoothly. We'd certainly contact him in the first instance for our next trip to South Africa.

Super responsive and helped us find the perfect safari lodge
I was booking late and there were too many potential options, many of which were already booked. Stanley was super helpful in finding options, dealt with my many questions and requests, and helped us find a perfect small lodge in Balule that we had an amazing time at. I don't think we would have found or chosen this place otherwise!

Stanley was very professional and helpful
We had an amazing stay at Nsala Safari Lodge. We stayed there for 3 nights. The staff were super friendly and made our stay unforgetable. Definitely value for money. We loved watching out for wildlife from the lodge. We spotted an elephant, giraffes, a hyena, buffalo’s, lots of cheeky monkeys and banded mongoose who came for their drinks at the pool. The food was lovely. Our room was beautiful. The early morning and evening bush drives were exciting! Thank you for an amazing safari experience!

Very Professional, extremely friendly, top shelf organization.
I am a seasoned traveler who likes flawless and comfortable vacations! If you have a safari on your list of journeys, strongly consider this outfit. From the very first time I communicated with Stanley to the time I was dropped off at the airport to depart, it was flawless. I saw all of the animals on the safari I was looking forward to seeing and then some. The food, the service, the lodging, the transportation and all of the logistics were really well managed. The value for what I paid is tremendous. The entire staff was extremely considerate and friendly. A 10 out of 10.
Well organised and good communication. Value for money.
Our trip included several operators and it All happended like a clockwork. Operators was well informed from SW and they where All welcoming and professional. The lodge Tangala inside Tornbush was an excellent choice from SW, food, service, the guide and tracker was All good. 3 nights with 6 safari was a good choice and we had so many good moments together with sympatic Co guests. We have allready recommend SW and Tangala to other travellers.

Hakuna Matata, wildlife heaven, just a magical journey ...
What an adventure! Hakuna Matata ....
After arriving in Johannesburg and exploring the city for 1 day, we flew to Hoedspruit. We’ve started with the Simbavati Trails Camp with glamping facilities and clear star skies in Greater Kruger (2 nights). We enjoyed encountering animals on short distances from small to big and to learn about their footprints and behaviour. After a scenic walk in the evening, we were surprised with a sunset Gin Tonic and a hot bubble bath under the stars. It was a unique experience in an unfenced Camp, where elephants drink from the swimming pool by night. The food served out of that basic kitchen was 1-star quality and versatile. Thompson is an excellent chef. The facilities were clean, confortable and we had everything we needed or wished for. The staff was outstanding. Donald brightened our days.
After 2 nights, we’ve moved to another area (Klaserie Private Nature Reserve) and the Simbavati Amani Lodge (also 2 nights). We had close encounters with the animals while enjoying the afternoon at the swimming pool. The water hole in front of the lodge is a dream come true. We had the feeling the whole Lion King movie just passed by ;-). In the morning and afternoon we’ve enjoyed fantastical game drives with drinks and snacks in-between. Our guide Julius was amazing. The facilities were luxurious, and we felt very welcome and as part of the Amani family. For us the combination of the Trails Camp and the Lodge with game drives was a perfect fit and the ideal combination between luxury and proximity to nature with close encounters. We always felt safe and got very close to those wild animals.
We definitely recommend Safaribooking and the Simbavati Trails Camp and Amani Lodge. Everyone helped us to make our dreams come true.

Very attentive and helpful from beginning to end!
My husband and I have just returned from our 3-day safari tour in Entabeni Game Reserve in the Waterberg area in the north of South Africa. Singwe, our tour operator took very good care of us and made sure that we could enjoy our trip. We were booked into a different lodge than originally planned (due to a lack of other guests), but that was no problem for us. In the contrary - the Legend Safari and Golf Lodge is a luxurious place and we were treated like VIP guests there. Our twice-daily game drives were the highlight of our stay in South Africa and offered us a glimpse into the awesome wildlife and nature of this huge country. Staff (drivers, waiters, managers, rangers etc) were really friendly and hospitable wherever we came. And we always felt safe and well looked after. Thank you!

The planning, execution, accommodations, flexibility and professionalism were all above expectations
It was an amazing experience! We worked with Henk and Stanley, both helped us tremendously in the planning and execution phase. We did not know what to except from such a trip. We were amazed by the great accommodations, the level of service and the perfect execution of the plans that involved multiple countries and multiple sites in each country. The Safari tours were almost private, and we were able to go out for safari tours twice or three times daily. National Geographic was unfolding in front of us from the close encounters with hippos and elephants to the relaxing Lions and the majestic giraffes. They made sure that we stay connected throughout the trip and were able to make it work to perfection. I would recommend these folks with no hesitations.

Outstanding tour backed by outstanding service!!!
Couldn’t have asked for a better tour or better service. Stanley was able to accommodate all of my special requests (solo traveler, different flight itinerary, panoramic road tour, specific dates, etc) and was even able to move everything 3 days later when I couldn’t board my flight because I didn’t have the right type of Covid test. He was always available for any questions I had. The tour itself was amazing and couldn’t have been any better!
