Our first safari and a fantastic experience thanks to our guide Kara and Nhongo Safaris. We had booked a 4-day safari and loved every minute of it.

Three of us booked a 4 day tour with Ndongo and were lucky enough to get Robbie as our ranger. He had fantastic knowledge of the safari and animals, and was a lot of fun to be around. The day tours were always organized and on time too. We had a ukulele with us on all the game drives and... More

Three of us did the budget/economy tour and were surprised at how amazing it was for being a "budget tour". The drive to/from Johannesburg with Dez was smooth. The lodge was perfect; a really nice place and the meals were delicious. The best part of the tour was our guide, Robbie Williams. Robbie is extremely experienced and with him we... More

My husband and I just returned from a 4-day safari with Stuart and we couldn't be happier. He was an extremely knowledgable guide who shared information about both the ecosystem of the park and its animals. We were extremely lucky to see all of the Big Five by our second day but enjoyed every one of the rides. As part... More

We are just after returning from the 4 day safari. Our guide, Gert, was superb. He went over and beyond to ensure we had good sightings. He was a pleasure to deal with and very knowledgable of both the animals and birds. We were delighted with the accommodation also. The cabins were very comfortable with air conditioning, in door and... More

Robbie was the most fantastic guide! He really took his time to explain everything to us and went out of his way to give us the best experience/time. Waking up for a game drive with him even after a short night was the biggest pleasure and we couldn't have asked for anything better!! Thank you so very much!!

My team and I had an absolute blast with this group!

Robbie was the most informative, passionate, helpful, and fun guide ever. I learned so much from the drive, more than I have from other guides. He really exceeded our expectations for this trip. We have specifically requested him for the rest of our gane drives. Highly highly recommend. Also, his laugh is the best Ps. Hippos are bipolar?!
