We've just finished our week long Safari trip with Wildlife Safaris and are just so gutted it's over! We had such an amazing trip. So well organised, all ran so smoothly, and everything was just awesome. We saw the Big 5 plus many more, and learnt so so much about South Africa and its people and history along the way,... More

We went on a short (4 day) trip to Kruger. The team at Wildlife safaris was very helpful when we planned the trip. Our guide Sue was fantastic. She was brilliant at spotting the wildlife and always has something to say about each animal. She was also great at spotting birds for my sister. Kruger itself is beautiful and packed... More

Our Kruger trip with Wildlife Safaris was absolutely amazing! We did the Kruger tour with the panorama route and it was breath-taking. Our tour guide, Clive, was just amazing. His mission was for us to see the Big 5 and we were not disappointed! We had lions, leopards, elephants and so many more amazing animals right by our vehicle and... More

We booked Wildlife Safaris for the first part of our honeymoon in October 2015 and we could not have been happier. We're writing this review a bit late but life happens and time flies! To start, I spoke with no one on the phone. Everything was handled through email and it was booked to perfection. Yes, it is a scary... More

My wife and I did the four day and three night tour with Wildlife Safari. We were blessed to have Hoppy as our guide. He picked us up from our hotel in Joburg in the morning and along with one other person, we drove by a comfortable van to Kruger. It takes about four hours to get there. We used... More

We completed the 3 day Kruger Park Safari yesterday, and I'm pleased to say that it exceeded our expectations in every way! Everything was so well organised and planned, right from the original booking process all through to being dropped off back at departures at Johannesburg airport in plenty of time for our flight. The instructions were very clear and... More

We did a 4 day trip with Clive, our marvellous guide, who was always entertaining and very knowledgeable. We saw the 'big 5' and many more besides. The lodges where we stayed were clean and comfortable, especially the lodge at Sabie River, where we saw hippos playing in the water.

Had a fantastic trip! I booked based on Trip Advisor recommendations and was not disappointed. We had such a nice small group and guide, Hoppy. Liked how they picked us each up at our hotels/guesthouses. Hoppy is very knowledgeable and funny. We saw the "Big Five" and many more beautiful animals. The lodging was nice, too, as were the meals.... More

WOW!! This experience far exceeded our expectations! The park, the animals, the food, our guide - Hoppy, and everything in between was impressive. Hoppy picked us up from our lodge (Blue Mango Lodge, also recommended) and we headed on our merry way to Kruger. The drive is a bit tiring at 5 hours, but our spirits picked up as soon... More
