A fantastic place to see the "Big Five" and so much more.
Overall rating

We visited South Africa for a week-long safari with our two teenage sons, and had a fantastic time in Kruger and Hluhluwe National Parks, where we saw lots of the fantastic animals and birds - including some rare and unusual ones - that are found here. We stayed in a number of camps in both parks and were looked after incredibly well by Ryan and his team from Wild Planet Safari, who planned our entire itinerary and made a huge effort to find as many of those birds and animals for us to see as possible. We would definitely recommend South Africa as a holiday destination, and certainly hope to come back again one day soon, and definitely also recommend Wild Planet Safari for a guaranteed great safari trip.

One of the most welcoming, interesting and astonishing countries I have ever visited.

I would like to highlight three things about our safari experience. One of them is the bush walks we did. It is definitely the best way of getting to know bush life in an overall but also concrete way. You get deep knowledge apart from just the animals. The other highlight is the best decision we made: sleeping outside. That way you really feel "the african bush charm" under those stars and listening to the sounds of the bush (and SO comfy and warm!). The third highlight are obviously our guides. Elias, Minaz, Shanon, Nico and Rex from Tremisana Lodge made us learn SO MUCH and made us love the bush and want to become guides ourselves! doing that bushwalk the three of us with Elias was one of the most enriching experiences in my life. The only thing I didn't like was Reinick behaviour when the buffalos aproached us during the night, he was a lot more scared than we were!

Me and my wife had a great time at Kruger National Park. Saw lots of wild animals up close it was such a great feeling having lions about 10 feet from your vehicle steering at you. Everything from being picked from airport dropped to hotel and journey to Kruger Park and back to hotel went smooth.
blyde River Canyon was absolutely breath taking what a view was amazing. Weather was brilliant.

We booked through Tammy at Pembury Tours. We found her on SafariBookings.com. A perfect experience. Everything from the accommodation, to the drivers, to the variety in our Safaris, to keeping in with our budget, to getting refunds for tours not available due to weather, Tammy was amazing. Our experience in South Africa could not be more perfect. We stayed in Capetown and then flew to Houdspriet for the Safaris. The rangers on our Safari's were amazing and we could not believe the animals. The weather was perfect for our liking (not too hot) and we enjoyed every minute of our vacation. Thank you Tammy at Pembury and SafariBooking.com!

I have never done a safari before but it is a great experience. During my safari trips in South Africa I have seen so many wild life animals like lions, hippos, elephants and zebras close to our vehicle.
