We were here during the wet season so seeing the wildlife was a bit of a lottery because of all the abundant plant life. However what we saw was fantastic. Close up and personal with giraffes, elephants, antelopes (5 different species), baboons and hippos. What...More

This park comprises both thick bush and river flood plains. Being early February we were aware that the bush would be thick and not best for game viewing however when it rains it really rains! Conditions didn’t distract from big game viewing on the flood...More

Amazing overnight trip with Kalahari Tours. Our guide Kembo was amazing and we got to see a leopard! Kruger Park is much more diverse with animals but the elephants are amazing.

Highly recommended.....Kalahari Tours....Captain was our Guide- Exceptional. The food at the Tour offices was also exceptional.....5 star. Sadly I thought the food at the safari overnight was mediocre at best. I would however, highly recommend this Outfitter.....good value and passionate, caring staff.
