We booked a week long safari with the company in March 2014. Verity promptly picked us up at our Johannesburg hotel then we drove to Pretoria , the capital, to get a commercial shuttle to Nelspruit. A very interesting ride seeing the beautiful country. The shuttle was late arriving and someone had gotten sick on the floor rendering the van... More

My family visited Kruger Park and went on a 4 day Safari tour hosted by Nhongo Safari tours. Our guide was Robbie Williams and he performed perfectly. Robbie took us into all the nooks and crannies in our area to see as many species as possible. He succeeded. We saw the Big 5 and Magnificent 7 and just about ever... More

Robbie was our guide. He was fantastic! Lots of sightings including rhino, african wild dogs and cheetah as well as the Big 5. Caught elephants taking a mud bath and saw lots of babies. November proved to be a great time for safari.

We were in Johannesburg on business and booked a weekend Safari. Verity picked us up from our location on the Friday and after a long drive we arrived in the Kruger Park. We stayed at Nkambeni Lodge and it was great. Food and drink good and the best tent I've seen. We set off at 6am on Saturday with Mark... More

We did the 4 day 3 night luxury tented lodge with Nhongo. Booking was easy and as planned Verity picked us up on the agreed day at our hotel. Our journey began by using the Lime shuttle from Joberge to Nelspruit, which took us about 3 hours. Upon arrival there we were greeted by Curtis, our guide for the next... More

This was an unbelievable safari. On top of seeing all sort of animals (Big 5 many times over + lots of other exotic animals), the staff at Nhongo was above and beyond what we expected. The guide was great, and the office staff was fantastic setting up the safari. I'd definitely recommend Kruger park & Nhongo Safaris.

ARRIVAL: Myself and three other friends just completed the four day three night adventure safari with Nhongo. We were picked up from our AirBNB in Johannesburg (thanks, Verity, for accommodating!) and taken to OR Tambo where we hopped in another van. From it was about a 2.5 hour transfer to our next bus (there was one break at a gas... More

This has been a bit of a mixed bag. Nhongo was extremely efficient in responding to our initial queries and making our bookings. Airport reception and transfers to and from the park as well the overnight stay in Johannesburg (before we caught our flight) were managed to perfection. The guide Nhongo assigned us was a wonder-man called Robbie Williams who,... More

Our family vacation to South Africa in 2013 began with a 4-day tour of Kruger. Dean and Mark from Nhongo Safaris took great care of us. I had the impression that they were working 24 hours a day to make sure our trip was everything we hoped for. We travelled with children (7 and 10 years) whose safety was, naturally,... More

Verity dealt with all my endless questions prior to booking with great patience and was very good at reassuring my questions weren' t silly.
