    Great experience all-around. From the time of booking, the communication was clear and responses to questions was quick. The driver to and from Maputo was knowledgeable and professional. The tour guide was informative and responsive to our group. We saw a lot of animals and all around this was a well organized experience and worth the price. I would do this tour again and recommend it to others!

    Ofiço the driver and Thabi the guide were great! I spent an entire day at Kruger Park and definitely recommend it! If you have a day off in Maputo, this is totally worth it.

    Just did a Kruger overnight tour with them!!
    Can’t describe how perfect it was. Really.
    I’m a solo traveler, I texted them in last moment while taking the bus from Johannesburg to Nelspruit arriving at night. Even so, they got me for the next morning in a group that was doing the safari and picked me up at 5am in my hostel and the tour began. I did a fullday game drive and overnight in a Camp, with also a night drive and morning drive in the other day. After that, they brought me to my hostel in Nelspruit again. The whole experience was awesome. All safe and sound. Got to see pretty much every animal that was to be seen.
    The guide, the game drives, the car, all the guys involved, the tent to sleep was great and warm, the dinner was perfect with lots of food and also bottle of wine.
    Definitely recommend to anyone.
    Shoutout for: Briandan, Muzi and our awesome guide My lord. Wish you all the best!
    Greetings from Brazil!

    We had an amazing Safari. Our guide Bhekifa, was "over the top" wonderful. He grew up living just outside of Kruger National Park. He was extremely knowledgeable, had a positive attitude, and was very engaging. Because of his expertise and God looking down on us, we were able to sight the "big 5" plus 30+ other animals and birds in this one-day experience.

    Amazing day with Dave! He gave us a lot information about all sights we visited, he was full of energy and we loved this day. When we told him that on coming Monday my 6year old would celebrate her birthday he sang her a birthday song, bought her a gift from a local market, even had the ladies in the restaurant sing her the birthday song, in a special African way (!), and make a pancake for her, that was a great surprise for all of us! All the views were amazing and all information and jokes coming from Dave made this day unforgettable!

    Tours Maputo has an excellent program of 4 days (3 nights) that combines the cultural essence of Eswatini with the wonders of Kruger Park.
    In Eswatini we combined a traditional dance show, a game drive in Hlane national park (where we saw hippos, rhinos and elephants) and a night in a traditional but very comfortable lodge.
    In Kruger, of course, things were even better with lions, leopards, giraffes, zebras...
    Ofiço is a very safe driver and a remarkable guide.
    This tour is a must-do.

    I did the 2days/1 night camping, Blyde Canyon & Kruger safari with Mbombela Tours in June, & I must say, it is by far one of the best safari experiences I’ve had. Netto, the co-owner of Mbombela Tours, along with my guides Muzi & Trevor made my safari experience one to remember. On my first day, I did the Blyde Canyon & Panorama Route tour with Netto as my driver/guide. It was such a beautiful drive to some of the most scenic places in South Africa. After my Panorama Route tour, I was dropped off inside Kruger NP for my overnight stay at Mbombela’s tented camp. Because it is camping, you can’t expect anything luxurious, but honestly, it was beyond what I expected. The tent I stayed in was spacious, with a comfy bed, as well as an electric blanket for the cold winter nights in the national park. Muzi showed me around camp, took care of me, & made sure I had everything I needed for a comfy stay. He is so personable & friendly, and it was a joy chatting with him during my stay. The next day, I did a full day game drive in Kruger with Trevor as my driver/guide, with Muzi joining us. Trevor is also very personable & is super knowledgeable about the park & the wildlife that I learned so much from him in just one day. For me, an excellent safari experience isn’t just about seeing as much wildlife as possible, but also how the guides interact with their guests. And my safari experience with Mbombela Tours was exceptional. I only wish I stayed longer, but nonetheless, I do hope to come back again & bring more people with me to experience an enjoyable safari with professional, knowledgeable, fun, & overall superb guides.

    We can only add to the already fantastic reviews of this tour company - we had a the best overnight stay in Kruger with our tour guide Ciska who looked after us so well. Her ability to spot a Cheetah 200m away meant we got a really rare sighting!

    Our overnight accommodation in Pretoriuskop was lovely and our Braai dinner was cooked to perfection.

    The second day took us the length of the Panorama route with none of the stress of route planning and driving and the views along the way were nothing short of spectacular.

    We needed to get back to Nelspruit a little earlier than planned and we were given the flexibility to do so, truly making it a "flexi" tour.

    The safari was beyond amazing--I saw lions less than five feet from our vehicle, a leopard strolling down the road, and so many other animals that I couldn't keep track. The lodge itself was incredible as well.

    But the best part was easily my trip organizer, Jakes. He communicated everything in a timely manner and provided every detail possible. Most notably, when we had to cut my safari a day short due to events out of everyone's control, Jakes made sure I got refunded for my last day. I cannot recommend enough going through this booking if you want to make sure you have the best, most well attended to safari.

    My wife and I booked DT Safaris for our 2nd trip to Kruger on 4/2/2020. Rufus, our guide, was on time(early actually.. No mean feat at 5am), extremely knowledgable and tailored our tour for what we wanted to see. Highly recommend and would go with them again on our next visit to the park, hopefully sooner rather than later.

    Thanks Rufus and the DT guys making it easy for us, and providing a great day.

    Our Mabeco tour driver was waiting for us at the arranged time and he drove us to the entrance to Kruger Park and guided us through border controls from Mozambique to South Africa. Along the way we had a “boxed” breakfast of juice, water, apples, protein bars, and biscuits. We were met at the park entrance by our excellent driver and guide Nico Steyn. The early arrival meant we had a good chance of seeing animals and our expectations were exceeded: we saw 4 of the Big 5 and scores of additional species of bird and beast! A tasty and satisfying lunch was included at the Mugg & Bean, with a spectacular view across an estuarine landscape with giraffe and other animals.We can only say that we unequivocally recommend Mabeco. From online reservations, communication, to service and quality of tour - every step of the way was excellent and exceeded our expectations!
