    My husband and I went on our first safari ever and we stayed at Honeyguide. They sure know how to make safari special! They exceeded our expectations in every area and set the standard very high for any of our future safaris.
    To begin with, the check in process is very easy and the lady at the front desk is so welcoming. The tents were in great shape and were self sufficient with extra towels, toiletries, umbrellas, mosquito repellent and even extra blankets. The staff that works there is so friendly, warm and they seem to love their jobs. The guides and trackers are very knowledgeable, professional and personable at the same time. The meals that were served were delicious. Tea/coffee was always available in the lounge area. Our guide Aser and tracker Antony were the best! A Big shout out to them as they were the real heroes for making our safari so memorable.
    At Honeyguide, the guests are divided into groups and are assigned a guide and tracker. The group stays together for all meals and safaris. The best part is that your guide dines with you for 3 meals of the day, bringing you all close like a family. This according to me was the best part. We for sure made some lifetime friends on the safari.
    They have morning and sun downer safari and we were able to see the Big 5!!!
    The only one small recommendation is to have some lights in the front of the tent, so when we are in the tent at night, we are able to see any animals that walk around the tent. It will make animal watching all the more fun!
    PS: After lunch, don't go back to your tent. Just stay in the lounge area and you will see elephants(sometimes in big groups) at the water hole.

    We had a family vacation in SA and spent 3 nights at the HoneyguideTented Safari Camps Kruger National Park January 2017. It certainly was the highlight of our 3 weeks travel in SA. The whole experience was superb, we were extremely fortunate in having Anton as our guide who also happens to be the manager . The tents were comfortable, quite 'glamorous' also safe and protective against insects and mosquitoes. We loved the gourmet food served for breakfast lunch and dinner as well the drinks and snack breaks on our morning and afternoon safaris. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly throughout our stay. As for the actual safaris 2x day @5.30am and one @ 4pm was amazing , more than we ever expected. With Anton's experience and knowledge we were very fortunate to have seen the big 5 , experienced a lion kill a buffalo literally 2 metres from the safari vehicle , had many sightings of leopards and came up close and personal with 2 lionesses and their cubs. Many thanks to Anton and his team for being so accomodating, we loved every minute of our stay and highly recommend Honeyguide Tented Safari Camp to people wanting a true authentic African Safari.

    We stayed three nights during my daughters Make-A-Wish trip. She wanted to go on an African Safari. And wow did she get to go on safari's! Our guide Vestment and our spotter Willie are the BEST! Everyone should get to go on Game Drives with these two. We got to see the big five X 6! We even got to see two male lions hunt and take down an African Buffalo. All the guides work together throughout the area to help each other see all the Amina's sittings possible.

    The accommodations are good, the food is plentiful, and you are right in the middle of it all! There are monkeys in camp, Kudus, Impalas, and all other kinds of animals wondering through. When we got up one morning there was a Kudu within two feet of our porch! We had a drink and snack while we watched elephants eating. And we saw elephants and Rhinos in the same field.

    These are not zoo experiences! This is the real deal and again, Vestment and Willie make the drives fun and keep imparting knowledge at the same time. The kids felt special, and safe, while seeing everything you'd ever want to see. Where else can you find a Leopard with two recent kills in the same tree-a python and an Impala?

    The tents are clean, the showers and toilets are in the tents. If you are their for a five star hotel experience, then you are in the wrong place. If you want clean and quality accommodations along with AMAZING animal sightings with super guides, then this is the place to go!

    Room tip: Ask for Vestment as your guide! He's great!!!

    The tent was very basic with nothing to remind you that you were in South Africa.
    Food was okay but no variety, for those who don't eat (fish, or game meat). Food was served buffet style for all meals. Unfortunately for me I was one of the last in line and there was very little food left. Made to order eggs was the best part of breakfast. I felt the guides should have waited until all guest were served before filling their plates.
    Game drive was nice but they should have asked what guest wanted to drink before heading out.
    You are not allowed to bring food into your room from your car. Make sure you don't have anything that will spoil during your stay.

    This was our first Safari and we felt we had done a great deal of research in the UK but Bjorn from Kruger went through the various parks, private reserves and national reserves highlighting the pro's and Con's of all - in the end we were taken with Honeyguide Khoka Moya as they specifically cater for children so we were not worried about taking our 8 year old along.

    We were met on arrival by Gwen who was looking after us even before we arrived at the camp by answering questions and ensuring we were met at the airport and got to the camp safely. Also we met Fanuel and Ezekiel who would be our guides, educators and friends for the next 4 days - their knowledge and enthusiasm for their country and region meant so much and we all got pleasure from listening to their experiences and appreciating their insights.

    As for the important aspect "The Big Five" I had actually arrived rather skeptical about seeing them all in the time we had but I was not to be disappointed we had them all shot (digitally of course) within the first two drives (one at 5:30am and another at 4:00pm) - this meant that Fanuel could elaborate on the region and the varying landscape and vegetation so we got so much more insight - we went in search of the wonderful array of birds but also it meant we could focus on looking for different aspects and groupings of the various wildlife - seeing a herd of Elephant a pride of lions, male lions feeding, hyenas, vultures a herd of buffalo and the show goes on.... and on. Quite magnificent and with the guides everything became far more clear and understood for the whole family. We all especially loved the morning and evening stops for coffee and drinks respectively - best part of the drives as you get out of the vehicle and can take in the spectacle (always under the watchful eyes of the guides - so no one is going to be lunch for any of the local inhabitants)

    As for the food and camp - excellent all round

    The food was always extremely well presented by the chef who would narrate the menu before the main evening meals and there was always several dishes to choose from and plenty of food. There is a well stocked bar that is not at all over priced even considering the isolation (that was very much appreciated by me!)

    With the camp being open and directly bordering Kruger the wildlife is right there with you and we were graced on several occasions by antelope and elephants who came by to drink at the camps own watering hole (the camp is not fenced and so is directly part of the bush) - they get all the animals coming in to take a drink so we were glad about the evening rule that you are to be escorted to your accommodations when it gets dark.

    As for the tents - well they are tents so don't expect JW Marriott because if that's what you want then I suggest you go to a JW Marriott - but you will never get the level of experience and the feeling that you are part of the surroundings - now the tents are excellent they are founded on concrete slabs with semi permanent structures which include a private bathroom area which is very spacious and has all the amenities - no AC but a large fan and as I don't cope well with heat at night this was a worry I had, especially when the temperatures hit 45C - but it was fine and we were all able to sleep well (with the 5:00am wake up - you soon get the sleeping part down) as the beds were very comfortable and are all surrounded by a generous and complete Mosquito net.

    All in All I would recommend this to anyone seeking a safari that gets you right in the middle of the action we had a fabulous time. If you have children then the recommendation is even more assured.

    Room tip: All the tents are the same and any location will provide adequate privacy from the other tents (15 in total)
