I spent many hours on the internet looking for the perfect safari in Kruger as I was taking my Father-in-law on his first Safari experience. Ultimately booking the entire package (airport transfers, 3 day kruger safari and accomodation either side) with Outlook via an agency.
Right from the collection to being dropped off at the airport 6 days later, this team is professional and absolutely amazing. Every team member goes above and beyond their best to help you in every aspect, from meal requests to finding plug adaptors, this team is by far the best we have every come across in our travels around many African countries and safaris.
The Lodge is a real home away from home with the biggest asset being manager Francois. The other reviews certainly highlight his skills. He goes out of his way to make your stay as relaxing and easy as possible. The dogs are a real laugh and great fun to play with for many hours. A Soweto tour with local Mr S (who was also our airport transfer taxi) was unbelievable experience and has knowledge and local history second to none - a must do.
The Safari team of Jonathan (amazing chef), Villem (our passionate guide), Moss and Bennet (most efficient transfer drivers) were hands-down the best we have ever come across. These guys were simply excellent in making the experience of being in the famous Kruger park on safari unforgettable.
To all the staff at Outlook, my sincerest thank you.
If you are looking for the perfect package, safari or a home away from home in johannesburg... look no further.
