Very enjoyable safari. Our guide and spotter Shadrack (?sp) was very professional and knowledgeable of all things safari and worked very hard to spot as many of the big five as possible. We did spot 4 of the five. Wonderful experience of a lifetime

Beyond what we hoped! Melicki and Jojo were excellent tour guides and organizers. I was at first skeptical because the price point was so reasonable; seemed too good to be true. We are a family of five and wanted to do safari with just us. With ease, Melicki organized the trip for us, including domestic flights and even one that wasn't part of our formal tour when we wanted to get to Capetown at end of safari. We also had some last minute changes and she was able to accommodate us easily. As for the tour itself, we weren’t convinced we could have had a better safari. It was plenty of time (I had worried it was too short). Jojo is amazing. Jojo was a former ranger of the park and knew the ins and outs of Kruger. We saw everything one could see, from leopards to lions to elephants. We wanted to stay in a hotel and the accommodations they recommended and booked for us were beautiful while still maintaining close proximity to all of our activities. Then, Jojo joined us back to Johannesburg as they also organized a day long tour of the city for us that showed us another side of the country, stopping in Soweto and the International Court of Justice, which were both fascinating. If you’re looking for a private safari with a knowledgable, cheerful guide and excellent accommodations, you should use them and they can help in so many other ways as you plan a visit to South Africa.

My family went on a 5 day safari with Jo Jo and we had a blast. First off I would like to say how child friendly Jo Jo was. He really enhanced the experience for not only us but them as he was able to connect with them and was knowledgable about EVERYTHING. On our safari we saw so many animals and was able to tell us some interesting facts about each one. My kids are picky eaters and that was a huge worry. Melicki advised me that we could go somewhere to eat where everyone is happy and she was right. Jo Jo presented us with several different options of restaurants and it was perfect.
If I could give more than 5 stars I would have.

I really don't know where to begin... JoJo picked me up on Monday morning and we headed out on our Panorama Tour, which was remarkable. The scenery was amazing! JoJo saved the best for last and it blew me away!
The next day we did a full day in Kruger and we saw so many animals the shutter on my camera didn't stop all day. JoJo was so knowledgable about the wildlife, the flowers and trees and South Africa itself. Day two was also a full day spent in the park and we saw the Big 5 in less than a day and a half, so the rest of the tours were a bonus! JoJo is a wealth of information. He is an extremely personable guy and we had a great time. It will be an experience I will never forget and JoJo made it extra special. I feel like I have gain lifelong friends with Mel & JoJo!
Mel was wonderful with the reservation end of it. We set it up with what I wanted to do and it tuned out fabulous. I don't know how many emails I sent the poor girl, she must have been sick of seeing my name come up on her computer, but always answered every question I had in a very professional manner.
I cannot say enough good things about this company! They went above and beyond for me in many situations. I needed a covid test 48 hours prior to my flight and JoJo took me to and from that appointment. He also drove me to the Airport at the end of my vacation, and Mel found me transportation when I was stuck.
This company is fantastic, book them, you will not be disappointed! I will be back to South Africa and when I do, it will be with MOAG
Thank you for making my trip of a lifetime so memorable!

I’ve come from Maasai Mara, Gorillas and Serengeti. This tour was without a doubt the highlight of the bunch.

Incredible knowledge of the animals, country, culture, great English, very safe (+ safety tips in SA), quick to respond & a very reasonable rate for my 3 days on top of ALL the animals we saw on my solo tour - lifetime dream fulfilled!!

You won't go wrong here!

I can’t express how fantastic Moving on African Grounds is.
JoJo is an amazing guide and became a wonderful friend over the 5 days we spent with him. And both JoJo and Mel came through for us when plans changed and we needed to add transportation + an extra day onto our original agreement.
Mel worked with me before our trip to customize an amazing experience for our family, taking into consideration all of our interests and desires to design our dream safari and Kruger trip.
JoJo has the training, experience and instincts to track and find ALL the animals! Our 4 year old can now say she saw the BIG 5 before she turned 5! We actually saw the Big 5 two days in a row, plus every other animal we could imagine. We joked that JoJo is almost magical in the way he can find everything there is to see each day!
JoJo is fun and engaging for people of all ages. Our very shy daughter got so attached to him, she insisted on sitting next to him at every meal. Lol. And we all enjoyed learning not just about the animals but also about South African history, culture, foods, geology, etc. JoJo is just a wealth of knowledge and fun!
And, all this for one of the best prices I found when researching safaris! If you’re looking for a great price for a totally private and customizable experience, amazing service and passionate planning, along with the most friendly, fun and knowledgeable safari guide in SA... Moving on African Grounds is absolutely the way to go!
If we ever make it back to SA, we will absolutely plan another tour with them and will suggest the same for our friends, family and everyone else.

I can't believe how good this company is. I went on a full day private safari with me, my husband and two children. My autistic son is really into elephants and the guide tried his best to ensure that we saw a lot of them. He was delighted the entire trip, putting our worries aside that he would would get aggravated. The highlight to the trip was that we even saw a family of elephants that were cooling themselves down in a swamp. Thanks, you guys are truly the best out there.

My friends and I went on a five day private safari in Kruger. Mel booked our trip and did everything that we wanted and above. Jo Jo is truly talanted at his job and made sure we saw the big 5 along with a whole bunch of other animals. He is very knowledgeable and told us very interesting facts about the animals, birds and plants.

They are the best out there and would recommend them as they are the best in the field.
