I spent 4 days in the Kruger travelling with Nhongo Safaris. Our guide Amanda was knowledgeable and passionate about the park. She helped our group to understand what a diverse environment Kruger has to offer and gave us memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you Nhongo Safaris, I can't wait to come back :)

Cannot recommend Nhongo enough - from booking to farewell everything was perfect. Even when my payment somehow didn't go through, Verity made sure we got on the safari we wanted at the last minute. Our guide Amanda was hilarious, so knowledgeable, friendly and spent way more time at each animal sighting than any other guide we saw on the road.... More

We spent an amazing 22 days with Ranger Guide Mark Cherry of Nhongo Safaris. This was our 5th safari with Nhongo and it was absolutely the most outstanding safari experience we have had to date.

We did a full-day trip with Nhongo Safaris and were lucky enough to get Amanda as our guide. Due to unforeseen circumstances, our original guide couldn't make it, but Amanda was kind enough to take over - even on her day off! Her passion for the company, the animals and Kruger was just exceptional. She was very knowledgeable, refreshingly honest... More

This safari company surpassed my expectations. For $180 we had a comfortable ride in a van from and to Joberg (5 hrs each way), a two day safari, comfortable accommodations for one night, and buffet dinner and breakfast included.
