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

We were met at our guest house in Melville, Johannesburg by Verity and her daughter who took us to the airport to pick up the City Bug to Nelspruit. This was a pretty cramped mode of transport especially for my son who is 6'3 with long legs. So we had a bit of discomfort but the best was yet to... More

My 12 year old Grandson and I took a 4-day safari to celebrate his birthday. From the time we landed until we departed everything ran like clockwork. We had a great time and it was a wonderful experience for both of us-made possible by all the great folks at Nhongo. They are professional, knowledgeable and committed to making sure you... More

We had a four day safari with Nhongo Safaris that couldn't have been better. We were picked up in JNB and then traveled to Kruger park. The camp was very comfortable and the facilities and food very nice. Mark was our guide and did an outstanding job. He took us everywhere and was clearly passionate about his job. We saw... More

We loved our Nhongo Safari in Kruger. We had great transportation to and from Johannesburg. We stayed in a fabulous tented camp run by a local community, yet actually within Kruger. The tents were on platforms with doors and bathrooms. The camp had a large open air dining hall, with fabulous breakfast and dinner buffets. Our guide was world class--... More

We booked a 2-day budget Quickie Safari through Nhongo Safaris -- we wanted to squeeze in a trip to Kruger at the end of our South Africa trip. The website has loads of information (though I'm still not entirely clear on the differences between the various options), and all email communication was super-fast and very helpful and clear.
