Our experience with Viva Safaris met all our expectations and more. FANTASTIC!!!! The booking and communication was good, quick and informative. All schedules were clear and timely. Viva staff at the lodges were friendly and helpful and the food delicious!! A memorable moment was a Zulu song and dance in celebration of a family birthday!! The guides were knowledgeable about the animals and their habitat and worked hard to give us a great experience. We liked the rustic nature of Tremesana and Marc's Lodge as it gave a great sense of being in the bush.

Absolutely amazing trip! It was my first time in South Africa and my first Safari and I couldn't imagine anything better. It was such a great experience to sleep in a treehouse in the wild (after getting used to bugs and monkeys jumping all around you :D). The food was good and the guides were really passionate, friendly and funny. The safaris and bush walks were very well organized and it felt like a lot more than 5 days. Definitely a great adventure. :)

Hi Shayara Thanks for an equally GREAT review. We are thrilled to read that your very first safari in Africa went extremely well. We are happy that, despite the attentions of monkeys and bugs, you had a great experience in the Treehouses. Thanks for praising the good food and passionate guides that helped to make your experience the great adventure it was ! Be well

I booked this tour based on the accommodations and itinerary. Some parts met my expectations, while some did not. I debated even writing these reviews based on the GM's responses in the past but I thought I needed to share my point of view and readers could decide for themselves. (The accommodations on the tour were reviewed separately and in more detail.)

Firstly, dealing with Patricia in the office was a pleasure. She was incredibly quick to respond to any questions or requests I had and was so accommodating when we had to change our dates. Hostesses Pretty and Colette at both properties were fantastic and really did appear to try to make the guest experience a positive one. Ladies like these are real assets to Viva Safaris.

Let's be plain- the Safari industry is big business and Viva Safari's is a well-oiled machine. The transfer process and pre-ordering lunch at the same Mayfly restaurant in both directions while efficient just felt impersonal, like moving cattle from one location to another. It was off-putting.

We did not have great luck on any of the game drives. This was unfortunate and just the way it goes sometimes no matter how hard you try. That being said, going on drives in the heat of the day is generally a waste of time because the animals are usually resting or hiding from the heat like the rest of us. Having staff that resort to throwing food at animals to try to lure them out of hiding for a photo op is irresponsible and disgusting. Habituation- enough said.

Using the distance of the accommodations to the parks as an excuse and saying to spend more money on places that are closer is a cop-out. Better planning like leaving much earlier when park gates open so you can improve your chances of sightings, plus having better time and guest management would drastically improve the experience. I was willing to get up at the crack of dawn for a bushwalk- I would certainly be more than willing to do it for a game drive in Kruger NP.

Kruger was just disappointing for so many reasons. The itinerary for the day trip says: "regular stops at picnic spots, restcamps and places of interest". To me this didn't say we will be stopping at commercialized coffee and gift shops and restaurants for hours out of your day. Total waste of time, particularly when dealing with a group of inconsiderate stragglers for the entire 5 days.

A visit to Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre was a real highlight as was the stop at the Three Rondawels and the Blyde River Canyon on the way back. We were dropped off at the airport in plenty of time for our flights home.

Maybe I am guilty of building things up too much and having too high expectations being on previous safaris. Granted bad weather and rude tour mates happen and were not Viva's fault. This is a "Beginner Safari" and maybe the affordable pricetag should have made this more obvious to me.

Hi Thanks for your candid review and for so generously anticipating my response. Thanks for congratulating our great lady assets Patricia, Pretty and Collette. We actually take great pride in the "well-oiled" machine and know that all but one of our guests absolutely appreciate pre-ordering their meals at Mayfly restaurant. How can it be "impersonal" if you order in advance instead of wasting time by ordering once physically present at the restaurant ?? It is clearly a matter of efficiency, and we fail to understand how proper organisation can be off-putting. We are grateful that you acknowledge that Viva Safaris cannot be held responsible for bad luck with game viewing. As with my response to your review on Marcs Treehouse Lodge, Victor categorically denies any throwing of apples at lions. If you really believe lions eat apples and can be " lured out" then enough is said indeed. It is a pity that you regard your fellow safari-goers as "inconsiderate stragglers " - maybe they were just having a good time on safari ! It is good that you enjoyed Moholoholo Rehab Centre and the spectacular scenery of the Blyde Canyon and that our drivers got you to the airport on time. Be well Piero
