    we enjoyed a wonderful full day tour at Kruger with guide Keith. Although it was slow sighting in the morning, the afternoon was full of great animal viewings. Lionesses, elephants, baboons, zebras, giraffes, etc…. Keith continued to go through the parks various areas and was very informative on all animals and birds.

    wonderful long day trip organized by efficient African Safaris with truly excellent guide Jayden who managed to show us all Big 5 in single day including 3 leopards which is very rare – plus loads of wild dogs, impalas, wildebeest, tortoise, giraffes – I highly recommend this trip and Jayden in particular

    We were picked up at our resort on time, and quickly got to Kruger. Our guide was very good at finding spots other tour groups weren’t at, but the animals were. We saw three of the big five before breakfast, and all of them by the end of the day! We also saw rarely animals, such as cheetahs and African painted dogs.

    Dirk was our guide for a day at Kruger National Park. It was a brilliant day and Dirk was the perfect guide. Knowledgeable patient funny and determined to find the lions, who refused to come out, through no lack of effort on Dirk’s part..! If anyone knows more about this place than Dirk I’d be amazed.
