The scenery and wildlife was truly astonishing. South Africa has such a varied, lush, dramatic landscape that even just driving around is a pleasure. The animals were so beautiful and surreal to see in their natural habitat. The weather was good overall. Some rain but mostly sunshine and warmth and we didnt even get a single bug bite! In addition to the things intrinsic to South Africa, the people were so friendly and helpful everywhere we went. It was truly a trip of a lifetime.

Kruger park is amazing, with so many different species in their natural habitat. The tour included exactly what was in the description

We loved our trip to South Africa, nature and wildlife are so unspoiled and beautiful. Capetown was a surprise, and the weather helped a great deal, sunny almost every day with very little rain and not too hot for sightseeing.
Our stay at the Black Rhino Game lodge for the safari was also fantastic, all went smoothly with the airport transfers and the reserve was amazing, we saw lots of wild animals, loved the game drives and our guide was great. Highly recommended!

Wow, up close and personal with the magnificent wild life of South Africa!
After several trips to South Africa I have finally found what I have been looking for. This time I got to experience the real deal, staying in a bush camp on a private reserve. Wall to wall wildlife which because you are on a private reserve, you are driven right along side as the guides can take you off road. The accommodation was comfortable and clean in air conditioned tents; the food to die for (home cooked, traditional South Africa Food); my guides went above and beyond to give me my fill of wildlife and were very knowledgeable and passionate about their work. This trip has been such a highlight in my life so much so that I am returning to repeat it this coming winter.

It was good but wouldn't do it again
The safari experience was good but the safari provider not so much. If you enjoy sitting on a car for long long ours, this is your kind of activity. We didn't do anything else than sitting in a car for 3 straight days. Not my favorite plan, need some more adrenaline.

Saw all of the Big 5 in One Day!!!
We did the 4-day tour of Kruger and Greater Kruger with Viva Safaris and could not be happier. I have friends who have done safaris and paid $3,000 USD+. The most important thing for me was just seeing the animals and Viva Safaris did not disappoint. We saw all of the big 5 in one day and a cheetah which is apparently very rare. The treehouse and accommodations are obviously not The Four Seasons Hotel but that is not why I personally go on safari to begin with. The staff were professional, nice and worked together to make sure we had the best chance to see as many animals as possible. The BBQ on our first night was amazing and we were surrounded by a pack of hyenas which was crazy. Amazing experience all around!

The game druves were so good. We saw a lot of animals, more than we were expected. we came very close to the elephants, lions and cheetas!
Mostly of the guides told us a lot about the animals and were alsop connected with other drivers to see animals and then give us more experiences.
The food were very well prepaired and so many options. They serving us more than we need:)
We will for sure bee back again in this fantastic country!
