Cape Town is nice. Must visit Kruger. Don't go to Joburg!
Overall rating

Cape Town is paradise. Kruger National Park gives memorable experience. Food is cheap and nice.
Joburg sucks!!!! So dangerous.

Controversial beautiful

Pilanesberg is a beautiful well kept park. I was thrilled not only by the game but mostly by the breathtaking landscape

Animals in the Wild
Overall rating

Cape Town is a great city, from the mountains to the sea, we toured with a driver up to the Table Mountain,the cable car displaying fantastic views,down to the city and out along the coast and seaward,
The beaches were good and and close to the city,
We travelled out to a Safari Resort(,Along way from Cape Town) Mossel Bay, Botlierskop Private Game Reserve,
it was well worth the drive,
and everything there was wonderful, the Lodge and Meals excellent, the Rooms very comfortable with many types as options,swimming pool ,spa,etc
The staff and Game guides were perfect, the vehicles well maintained and comfortable, we saw many animals including Cheeters, Lions, Rhino, Hippo, Giraffes, Elephants, and bird species, we did 4 game drives, early morning and late afternoon, Each one stopping for refreshments along the way, each drive about 3 hours, recommend this Lodge

Vast and beautiful with very diverse people and wildlife.
Overall rating

South Africa was our family dream trip. Seeing the animals in their natural environment while on the safari was the highlight of our trip. It was very majestic. But everywhere you ride in South Africa from Johannesburg to Kruger to Cape Town all you see is vast and beautiful scenery all around. It also has a great deal of diversity among the people there. Beautiful mountains, canyons with rivers/streams, waterfalls, etc. I recommend that everybody comes at least once in their lifetime if they can.

Incredible nature
Overall rating

The safari was great. Everything is according to the program as described. The staff in the lodge and the ranger were friendly. During the 2,5 days of the safari, we saw the big five and many other animals. The prices on the website were at least 30% more expensive in comparison to the prices for tours that could be booked in the lodge directly. So, the tours at the travel agency may be reduced.

Happy time with wild animals
Overall rating

It was unforgettable experience to see wild animals in the nature. They look so peaceful unlike the animals in the zoo. The scenery was also awesome not only in Kruger national park but also in Hazyview but due to the rain and heavy fog could not enjoy the scenery well. I recommend this safari tour to everybody who likes nature or unique experience.

An exciting and pictureseque country with many problems.
Overall rating

Three days in Kruger National Park were memorable. The wildlife sightings were fantastic even the less popular animals. Any wildlife lover would not be disappointed. Unfortunately concerns about safety in various areas is always in the background.

Stunning destination, that I will have to visit again
Overall rating

Definitely recommend safari online as they made our entire vacation stress free and operated very smoothly. South Africa has so many different natural wonders wrapped up in one country. The Kruger portion of our trip was amazing.

Wildlife was amazing!
Guide should not operate at night with lights! It’s not natural and destroys the ambiance and natural beauty of the park.
The guides should announce how much time to spend at a stop & when we are headed back! No communication on these matters! I didn’t like that
