“Good, but not sure worth the money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2011

We (three of us) enjoyed our 3.5 hr tour with Safari direct. It was nice to have a private tour as you can dictate things a little, such as getting the driver to move the jeep a little to get that 'perfect' photo, but not sure it was worth the significantly higher cost than the public tour with the KNP guides. We saw similar things to the public tour at the same time and were in a very similar vehicle. If i had my choice again would probably just use the public tour used the money saved for other things (more tours - what a great palce KNP is!)

“Amazing Kruger Safari with Safaris Direct”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2009

Myself and my girlfriend are just back from a fabulous trip to South Africa where the highlight was undoubtedly a 3 day safari in Kruger national park which we booked with “Safaris Direct”.
Our guides name was “Dieter” and he was truly excellent. He had an encyclopaedic knowledge of the wildlife, and knew exactly where to find the animals.
On one of many highlights we saw two leopards fighting over territory that was nail-biting.
They do morning and evening drives when the weather is cooler in large 6 seat all-terrain vehicles where you are seated elevated high up for the best views. This makes a big difference as we saw many people in cars/jeeps and other low guide vehicles that would have struggled to see animals over bushes etc.
Cant recommend there safari enough.
