Surprisingly abundant wildlife sightings
Overall rating

We did a 3 day safari tour of Kruger Park in an open vehicle with Simon from Wild Wings safaris. We were worried that the time would be too short but we saw an amazing abundance of wildlife. We saw many, many elephants, giraffes, rhinos, all varieties of antelope, warthogs, hyenas and even multiple lions every day. We did not find cheetah or leopard this trip but we were not disappointed.
Our guide Simon was fabulous and was excellent at finding animals and taught us a great deal. He was also a great cook. This was a great holiday.

The safari puts the "wild" in "wildlife.

Beautiful nature. Feelings I have never felt before!
Overall rating

Weather is just perfect when it's completely dark and gloomy in Europe. Scenes are absolutely stunning as well.

I booked through Kurt Safari where the staff were very helpful and always available for questions and very well-informed guides!

Exellent safari!

Amazing - Bucket list checked. Unmissable experience
Overall rating

We were picked up at Joburg airport and the journey to Kruger is not short. We went on a 9 seat van that was ok, but the journey is very long and had 3 stops.
At last, we arrive at our lodge and there were hippos bathing in the lake in front and elephants around. There were so many animals... We were so excited that we forgot the long journey in 10 seconds. The swimming pool is essential in the lodge because the heat in the middle of the day is unbearable.
We did a sunset Safari and we saw lots of animals: Impalas, Zebras, Elephants, Rhinos and Hyenas and when it got dark we were the only ones in the road with 2 big flashlights searching for more animals.
In the next day our guide ask us for our expectation, and we ask to go look for the cats. He did it, we saw lions and even a leopard eating an impala and climbing a tree to eat it. It was amazing.
After lunch it was too hot and all the animals were hidden in the bush so I would recommend a morning and afternoon safari if possible instead of an all-day safari.
In the second day it was even more impressing with lions crossing the roads and even a fight between a lion and a lioness 15 meters away from us. We saw a one week elephant so clumsy.. And so many other things. We loved it.

Amazing safari experience - “Wildlife Safaris” -
Overall rating

Amazing experience. Christine and Nic took care of everything. From helping organise flights, to taking us to Kruger, to checking in the lodge, to taking us on the best routes, restaurants, avoiding the queues, taking pictures, and finally taking us home! Always at ease and Nic is THE most experienced man in Kruger. 30+ years experience, nobody has worked in the park longer.

Can’t recommend this enough. Reach out to them, tell them what they want and let them take control. They know what they are doing!

Re price, you may find another firm $100 cheaper, but this $100 savings is given back in either longer queues, jam packed vehicles or poorer food. I wouldn’t look anywhere else, and I know 1 client who has come back to Nic and Christine over half a dozen times.

Enjoy! Best of luck!
