    It was a very good safari and the driver was very kind and helpful and he made everything in order to see the wild animals!we show hippos, zebras, elephants, giraffes, rhino and others.unfortunately we didn't see lions but it is accepted that the animals are in their wild nature and you may not see whatever you want.

    An excellent day out. Nathi our guide was knowledgeable and informative, giving us information about each of the stops before we arrived, as well as telling us details about the history of the areas we passed through.
    Really enjoyed all the sites we visited and the lunch in Soweto (own expense) was an amazing buffet of local cuisine.
    Highly recommend.

    Good tour of Soweto, showing us the rich and the poor of the area. Khutso was an awesome tour guide who knew a lot about the area, highly recommend him! Convenient pick up and drop off service right from your hotel or local accomodation.

    We did the all day tour of Joberg with Banele. It was a great experience since we saw many things we would have missed since we only had one day in Johannesburg. Banele was on time, very knowledgeable and fun! We highly recommend!

    Great experience! Very well arranged. We were lucky to spot so many animals and the drivers were amazing. A very good option to experience a safari when staying in Joburg

    Short version: Everthing was perfect.

    All the transports are well organised and safe. All the people from VIVA Safari are very friendly and try their best, to give you the best experiance. The food was great and the tented lodge at Katekani was awesome - a lot of space, refreshing privat pool and even a AC, if needed.

    At all the stops during Krueger Park or the transfers you are able to pay with credit cards, only at the lodge you will need cash for drinks.
    Yes, the programm is packed full, but this is the best chance to see a lot of the animals. But you can skip parts of programm if wished. The bush walk was short and very interessting and easy to do.
    The first night in Tremisana lodge is outside of Kruger National Park, there for you can do game-drives on sunset and sunrise, you will have the chance to see lots of animals.

    We loved the experiance and our first safari and highly recommend VIVA Safari. There are other plans and camps you can book - for us the 5 days tour and to stay at Katekani was perfect.

    Side node to malaria:
    During this time (end of summer - more rain) malaria risk is higher. We spoke with the employees, the don't face problems.
    We were pre-caution and took the "malaria-medicine" and for sure bug spray.

    With Hoedspruit in the heart of the Limpopo Lowveld, this tour is ideally situated to bring you the very best of the Kruger Park. The package did not disappoint.

    Excellent guide. Very enjoyable view of the city. Enjoyed seeing the Fortreker Monument. Guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Small group experience well worth the money.

    Whilst not as good as it's Cape Town cousin, only because the scenery is plainer and there seems less to see, it's interesting and good to get your geography and sights organised, hard to get to locations to get on it, we had to walk around 1km to get to the Hilton, and were not able to get back to Sandton until after 4pm as there is only 1 bus back there (we took Uber as it was around 1pm), still quite interesting

    This was a great experience, and I can only recommend going on this tour. I had Themba as my guide, and he was amazing. Unfortunately or fortunately, I was the only one who went on the tour that day, but that didn't stop Themba from being a great guide. He was knowledgeable, fun, and great to talk to. I felt safe and well looked after. The Kota was delicious. Overall, I can highly recommend this tour! Thanks.

    This was an absolutely wonderful introduction to a safari. We got picked up at our Johannesburg hotel and driven to Kholiwe lodge. We spent 2 nights there, going on 4 safaris into Kruger National Park.

    Transportation: the drivers to and from the airport were on time, very polite, and accommodating. They answered our questions and stopped when breaks were needed.

    Lodging: the accommodations were great. AC in the bedrooms made it comfortable. Meals were provided and were excellent. The rooms were clean and we felt safe when in the lodge. One day we fed a family of warthogs right at the front door. Another day a couple of silver monkeys came and we fed them. One of us even got the feed a kudu that came up to the lodge.

    Safaris: the guide we had was Aubrey. He was amazing. He was in constant touch over the radio with other drivers to find the places to go in the park. Aubrey often would spot animals hidden in the bushes. We saw lions on each trip into the park. Elephants, including a herd with very young ones. Buffalo, zebras, giraffes, monkeys, baboons, hyenas, wild dogs, impalas, crocodiles, and many species of birds. It was incredible.

    Management: Balanta Tours was in constant touch via WhatsApp. They answered questions we had from before we got picked up through the final day we were there. They offered to help with whatever we needed. Very good customer service.

    I had a terrific time on this half day tour from Johannesburg. Pick-up from my accommodation was punctual, and communicated the evening prior. The driver was extremely professional and friendly!

    After picking up other guests, we proceeded to drive the 1 hour to the Lion Park. Upon arrival, the guide secured the safari tickets and we were on our way! Our safari began at 9:30am and finished around 11:30am. It was fantastic! There are never any guarantees with wildlife, but the animals were all very active during our visit! I particularly loved seeing the different enclosures of lions, the giraffes, and the hyenas! I had a wonderful time at the Lion Park.

    The driver gave us a bit of free time at the Lion Park prior to driving back to Johannesburg with drop-off at our respective accommodation. The Lion Park is well equipped with two restaurants on site, little shops to buy cold drinks and snacks, and the opportunity to see other animals in their enclosures. There are clean modern toilets on site also, and other amenities such as a children’s playground, information centre and many souvenir shops!

    We arrived back in Johannesburg around 1:30pm as promised, and I was taken straight to the airport to catch my evening flight (the tour operator graciously agreed to do this instead of dropping me back off at my hotel nearby the airport, saving me time and the hassle). Hotel pick-up and drop-off were included in the cost of my tour, as were all entrance fees.

    Terrific operator and a fantastic half day tour! I really enjoyed it! Thank you very much - I had a very enjoyable day.

    When we arrived late in the evening at the airport, the driver Lucky of Thiya Tours was waiting for us. He brought us from the airport to our hotel. He was very helpful and knew a lot to tell about Johannesburg.
    The next day we had some things planned to do in Johannesburg. Because we had only one day to spend in Johannesburg we decided to take the services of Lucky.
    We were pleased with this decision because Lucky is a great guy and an excellent guide. He drives safely in his clean and comfortable car and he was very polite and respectful.
    First he brought us to Soweto where we had a tour and after that we went to the Apartheid Museum. In the afternoon we went to different places in the center of the city. Lucky knew a lot to tell about the life in and the history of the city.
    If you visit Johannesburg we highly recommend Lucky of Thiya Tours for his services!
