Nhongo Safaris Review: Kruger National Park (0 Replies)
If anyone wants to go on a safari in the Kruger National Park I can highly recommend Nhongo Safaris. They replied to my first email request within two hours and always responded promptly to my emails. They picked us up from our hotel and took us to the park, Dean and Verity were always punctual, better said, always 5 minutes early. We did a 7 day safari (it was our honeymoon) and it was amazing. Dean has been working in the park for over 20 years and knew every animal, bird, plant, anything...More

We are trying to finalise itinerary for our two week visit to SA iat the start of November. Plan is to fly to Joburg arriving the Friday morning and stay there for three nights (my boyfriend has friends/family to catch up with). Depart Monday morning for Kruger with Nhongo Safaris for 4 day/3 night safari. Arrive back Johannesburg the Thursday and stay overnight at hotel near airport. We then want to see a bit of the garden route and of course Cape Town. My feeling is we want to spend...More

Half way between Knysna & CT is a lovely place called Witsand or De Hoop NR. Hermanus is about 1 hr drive from CT so you could stop on route to CT or do a day trip.

Hi there! At the end of our trip in SA we will want to do a 4 day safari in Kruger NP (from 31st Mar to 3rd of April as we fly from Jo'berg @22.20 on the 3rd) Can anyone give us some recommended companies for guided tours that focus on wildlife viewing, not luxury but are comfortable and affordable? I've had a quick look at Nhongo Safaris and they seem good... How much should we be paying pp? & what time would we need to be at Jo'berg airport on the 31st to start the safari? (the...More

Are you aware that you an fly direct from CPT to an airport close to or in KNP? 1) Kruger Mpumalanga Intl airport - KMIA also called Nelspruit airport (MQP) which is good for access to the southern part of the park. 2) Eastgate airport, also called Hoedspruit airport (HDS) which is good for access to the central part of the park. 3) Skukuza airport (SZK) which is inside of the National park All 3 of these have flight to JNB when you are departing.
