Our private tour was truly Ama Zing! This is a MUST do and see. Our guide was exceptional! He was very knowledgable, professional, funny and his passion for all the animals is admirable. He taught us so much about the animals we saw. I'm looking forward to coming back for another tour soon!

The guide Chris is very kind person with a lot of knowlidge about animals and places. Next time in South Africa I'll... More

Hi Moschos Thank you for the review! Chris also told me that you had a good time on your 2 Day Chalet Kruger Park Safari. It is great that you managed to see the Big 5 in just 2 days in Kruger. We hope to see you again one day! Kind regards Willie More

This was our first safari and what a wonderful introduction to Pilanesburg. We did the four day, three night camping safari. Our guide, Chris was knowledgeable, reliable and efficient. He was very entertaining and I must say makes a great steak and butternut squash. The campsite (Manyane) was fairly well run, with a restaurant and bathroom facilities. There were a... More

At short notice Willie arranged for Chris to pick us up from a private address in Sandringham and drive us to Pilanesburg for a day tour. The drive there and back was most interesting and Chris knew a great deal about the areas we passed through. Once in Pilanesburg, Chris drove slowly and exhaustively through most areas of the park...

After a really busy 8 day business trip we ended up with a day and a half of downtime in Jo'burg. While this did not leave us with enough time for a traditional safari we still wanted to see some animals. Ama-Zing Safaris was great. With less than a week lead time I was able to set up a 1... More
