We have just returned from a 7 day safari and yet again had an amazing time which couldn't have been any better. We flew in to the local airport and despite the plane being 45 minutes late our guide Robbie was waiting patiently outside for us. We spent the first night at Pretoriuskop which was very nice followed by two... More

We would definitely recommend Nhongo Safaris, they are very easy to deal with in advance and come back quickly in response to questions. We were collected from our lodge in Johannesburg and taken to minibus transport to Nelspruit where we met our guide and driver. The journey from Nelspruit to the camp in the park takes longer at the moment... More

We booked our 4 day safari to Kruger National Park with Nhongo mostly based on the strength of their reviews on trip advisor so we very had high expectations for the trip and can honestly say our expectations were exceeded! Organisationally from start to finish it was a flawless operation, all the way from booking and paying for the trip... More

TWICE We were part of a great group consisting of 3 from Holland, 2 new US and 2 from India - a good group I think also makes the tour. Everything went smoothly from being... More

My husband and I did a 7-Day Safari and left longing for more. We will definitely be repeat customers. Nhongo are pros with lots of experience and strive to ensure you have a top-notch experience. They are one of a few companies that overnight in the park which puts you on the road at 6am and maximizes your wildlife sightings.... More

I'm not too sure how I should review this. First we were met by Dean in Johannesburg about 10 a.m. He drove us to Kruger Park Lodge with a stop at Nelspruit to pick up a rental car for one couple. There were 7 of us all together. Dean was a little huffy at first because we were to be... More

We thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately when it comes to Day Trips into Kruger we do sometimes have to outsource these day drives as our overnight safaris do take priority over day safaris. We are very happy to hear that Frankie did a great job and that you enjoyed your safari as they are one of our Safari partners... More

Nhongo are one of very few companies that use open top vehicles and stay in the actual park. Both of these are essential kruger experiences. It meant we were with the animals by 6am if not before and when we saw animals they were often very close to us and photography was easy. The staff are all fantastically knowledgeable and... More
