From beginning to end I had the most amazing time with nhongo safaris. The whole booking process was very professional and all my queries were answered immediately. The website was easy to navigate and verity went out of her way to make our trip stress free. Our guide Amanda was up early making sure everything is ready for our early game drive departure and all we needed to do was hop into the safari car and relax. Amanda worked incredibly hard to make sure we were looked after and answered all our questions! Amanda has a very quirky sense of humour and we had lots of laughs on the trip. We want to thank nhongo for making our safari an experience we will cherish forever. Nhongo is a small family run company and they go out of there way to make sure you have the trip of a lifetime. Thank you again to all the team and for Amanda who with her knowledge and humour made everyday amazing

Amanda, our guide was very knowledgable, professional & made the whole experience such fun.I highly recommend her & Nhongo Safaris. Best to go into the park with no expectations & just treasure all your sightings.The tourism sector has been hard hit by Covid, so please support local businesses & be generous with tipping. An experience of a lifetime! So much gratitude..

I had an AWESOME time last month on Safari with Nhongo Safaris. My guide Amanda was extremely knowledgeable when it came to all things Kruger (where to find the animals I was most interested in, where to eat etc.). I highly recommend Nhongo Safaris to anyone wanting to have a great time in Kruger!

Finally we had arrived -- it had been over year and a half of waiting to do this Safari with Nhongo after COVID had happened and delayed our trip twice. I cannot express enough words with how magical of an experience touring with Nhongo, and seeing Kruger national park was. We got picked up from Amanda from a local airport outside of the park that we flew into from JHB. Directly hopping into the safari vehicle with our luggage, we were driven through the nearby townships which was interesting and eye-opening to see. We arrived at the local Kruger national park huts that it seemed like any visitors could rent or stay at the camps. We were shocked that there was internet and restaurants on site here. Everyday we would get up before sunrise and be ready at the gate with Amanda in the car ready to go. We would get breakfast after a few hours looking for animals around the park, then come back for a late lunch. Take a proper needed nap between lunch and our afternoon drive, then come back for dinner with Amanda at the local restaurant of the camp we were staying at. It was definitely exhausted looking day in and out for the animals, but was so worth it. My wife and I got some amazing pictures and video that I just can't even believe we took and saw. We were able to see the whole Big Five and most everything else you would have hoped for. I think the only thing we missed was a cheetah, which honestly no big deal at all. Amanda worked hard finding everything for us! Chatting and working with Amanda was fantastic, she was super friendly and nice. She answered hundreds of my questions along the way and feel like we really had a special tour with her. We had apparently been their first tour in three months of a break with the COVID lockdowns so it was just the three of us. Getting to know Amanda and getting her advice was really special. It was great hearing about her life here at the park and how everything worked. She was also extremely knowledgeable of all animals and things related to the park. She was astounding. Our only hang up with the whole trip was the transfer from JHB to Nhongo / Kruger. We ended up changing to fly into a local airport and going from Skukuza to CPT in the end. But honestly, if we were to do it again I would recommend just flying from JHB to Skukuza and maximixing your time despite the extra money. Was worth it honestly. We are very happy we booked with Nhongo and wish you guys the absolute best. I'm sorry about the COVID hardship and difficulties you guys have had but thank you guys for working with us and finally having us come with you. We will never forget this trip!

Hi J8957OKryanw, We would just like to thank you for your review and are very glad that you enjoyed yourself while on safari with Nhongo Safaris. We are so sorry that you had to wait for so long, but hopefully, the wait was worth it, and gave you some wonderful sightings and memories for you to remember. We are glad that you enjoyed your time with Amanda, as she really works hard to find all the animals, together with all the information that she gives. At this point, travelling to Nelspruit by plane, is the best means of transportation at this time, until everything gets back to normal. Thank you for coming on safari with us, and we look forward to welcoming you back on safari in the future, to show you some other wonderful places in the Kruger National Park. Kind Regards The Nhongo Safaris Team.
