We did a full-day trip with Nhongo Safaris and were lucky enough to get Amanda as our guide. Due to unforeseen circumstances, our original guide couldn't make it, but Amanda was kind enough to take over - even on her day off! Her passion for the company, the animals and Kruger was just exceptional. She was very knowledgeable, refreshingly honest... More

We went on the two days/one night quickie safari. Though we only had a short time in the park, our tour guide Mark made sure we had a truly fantastic time. We were picked up from our lodging in Johannesburg and during that first drive down to Kruger our driver was friendly and informative, pointing out all the interesting sites... More

This safari experience was amazing. I went back in September, and I was a solo traveler, but everyone made me feel great. Dez was super fun on the drive, Gert was the absolute best guide, always going above and beyond to find us what we were hoping for. The accommodations they arranged were great, and it was nice to only... More

This safari company surpassed my expectations. For $180 we had a comfortable ride in a van from and to Joberg (5 hrs each way), a two day safari, comfortable accommodations for one night, and buffet dinner and breakfast included. I thought there must be a catch but there wasn't-- it was everything I hoped it would be! We drove around... More

My wife and I took the 4-day Adventure safari and had a wonderful experience with this company! We were picked up by Dez bright and early at our hotel in Johannesburg and transported about an hour outside the park where we met our guide Amanda, who drove us the rest of the way. Our lodging was at the Nkambeni camp... More

Our guide Amanda did a great job explaining Kruger's environmental conditions and pointing out our attention to the exceptionally beautiful wild life.... Just 2 days feels too short though.

Our guide was Gert and it ended up being myself and my fiance only on the your, despite not having booked a private safari. Gert was brilliant. His knowledge of the park, animals and birds was encyclopaedic and entertaining. He had a great dry sense of humour, laid back and tried to facilitate our requests. The accommodation and food etc...

To start off, every other person we dealt with through out ur stay was pleasant, patient and understanding. My ONLY issue was with our tour guide Stuart, who had a worst attitude than a teenager. When we were first picked up, we had to argue our way to get onto the sunset tour, which was something we paid for as... More
