We’d like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your help in arranging this trip of a lifetime. Every moment was one to remember. Ettienne is one of a kind and made everything even better (if that’s possible). We will be writing a review in TripAdvisor but I wanted first to thank you personally.
Have a wonderful evening

Rinat Frankle-Israel-Kruger Safari

The Cape Peninsula tour was also great, penguins at the Boulders are so adorable and the views along the coastline is so beautiful.

Maribel- Australia-Cape-Town

It was really an awesome amazing experience especially stalking the lions😄. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to spot any leopards so not completing the big 5. But overall, it was really fun and would like to do it again if given the chance. Thanks a lot. Thanks also to the driver you sent us, he’s not boring to be with ,for 5 hours drive to Madikwe & back.

Marcelo Vanoni-Brazil-Kruger Safari

We just arrived back from SA yesterday and all in our group agreed we had a great time on the Madikwe safari. Transfers to and from the lodge were punctual and comfortable and the driver was careful, cheerful, knowledgeable about SA and happily answered all our questions on the 4 hour drive! The lodge too was very comfortable – a real oasis in the desert. The food was good and the staff were very friendly and attentive – Alyson was thrilled by all the surprises they provided on her birthday. The waterhole and hide at the Lodge were a real bonus, providing great animal viewing between game drives and fabulous photo opportunities as well. The game drives themselves offered up almost everything there was to see in Africa – lions, cheetah, elephants, rhinos, buffalo, wild dogs, eland, oryx, impala, kudu, hyena …and more. Furthermore, our guides Stuart and Michael were really friendly and a wealth of information.

Thanks so much for your arrangements – we will be recommending both Safari With Us and Madikwe to any friends who want to safari in SA in the future.

Eliane Jeitz – Luxembourg – Kruger Safari

Staff were very friendly n helpful. The activities were varied n good mix with walks, rides in day n evening n visit to rehabilitation center was very educational. During the drives n walk we managed to eventually see all the big 5. At the rehab center we we’re standing by a cheetah as it fed on an impala carcasses. We also got to feed a vulture that flew onto our hand. The walks were educational as well learning about how one can live ‘off the land’.

Keh Hin See- Singapore- Kruger Safari

In summary, I can only say thank you !!!

Our experience of your arrangement could hardly be better – from accomodation to game drives to food to, well, yes, the weather !!

And many special thanks to Etienne – I could hardly imagine anyone better in guidance, knowledge, patience etc. Thumbs up !!!

If and when we plan to do something similar, we would be glad to contact you.

 

Robert Spirk- Czech Republic- Kruger Safari

Etienne our transfer driver was friendly and informative. Dion our guide in the Kruger park was excellent , knowledgeable and wonderful at spotting animals in the undergrowth.

WiFi was available in reception but would have been useful in the rooms.

We went to Kruger to see the Big Five and we saw them all and then some. The guides were professional and knowledgeable and all the staff at the lodges were super nice.
Andre was on top of everything from the booking all the way thru to follow up and see how our expereince was. A true professional who really cares:))

Jeff-USA-Kruger Safari

Thanks Andre, it was great staff was terrific, accommodations were quite nice. I saw every animal except the leopard but it was a really wonderful experience so thank you so much for all the attention to the details.

Rachael Costa-UK – Pilanesberg Safari

The safari was fantastic, such a great experience with lovely hosts/guides. Thanks for your help arranging.

Rachael-UK- Pilanesberg Safari

Everything was perfect – accomodation for one personne was very comfortable, the food was very tasty, transport from Johannesburg to Kruger and back was very fast and comfortable as well. The program was very good compilated (except stop in Blyde river canyon, beacuse I think that it should be better to spend there more time than 30 minutes).

Michael Marek – Czech Republic -Kruger Safari

Thank you for everything. Your suggestions, service and booking were everything we hoped it would be.

 

Madikwe and Motswiri was a dream, the staff incredible and accommodating beyond our expectations, the lodge beautiful, the food delicious,

 

You really did plan us the perfect honeymoon.

 

Thank you so much

Katie de la Fuente – Madikwe Safari

Thanks for your follow up. I enjoyed my trip especially the accommodation at the tree lodge which was an interesting experience. Although I didn’t manage to catch all the Big 5, I still enjoyed my time and am definitely impressed with your excellent service throughout.

Thanks!

Aprilyn – Kruger Safari

I did did a sleep out safari and it was great. Chris was an excellent guide on the walking safari and really made the trip for me, sleeping outside under the stars was fantastic too. I’d highly recommend it.

Christopher Fox – Sleep Out Safari

Dear Andre 

I just wanted to let you know what a fantastic time we had on our safari with you. Your staff were amazing especially Dennis ( who collected us and looked after us). What a wonderful experience from start to finish .

I would thoroughly recommend it and we will be back soon

Thanks for everything

Stephanie Sutton- 3 day Pilanesburg Safari

Hannetjie was an excellent tour guide. She had many wonderful suggestions, knew the area well, and was patient and accommodating. We were very happy with her services.

Gretchen & Caroline(USA)-5 Day Garden Route

In general we both -my partner and I- were very happy with all aspects of organization. It is to be noted that the timeliness of diferent activities was maintained -I find it very important when travelling- and we had an accuracy of advice and help on going from Victoria Falls to Livingstone. This help was already noted on the border of Southafrica and Botswana, as we had already previously filled the forms with the help of the guide, and inconveniences at customs were those just expected and due to custom officials.

Surely the worst of those days was the lodgement just on Victoria Falls; this was not a place in which to expect any inconvenience. The other lodgements were really good, and even in a place like Elephant Sands, in which inconveniences in good lodgement could be expected were not such, but in Victoria Falls the bathrooms were outside and were communal, so we changed the room for one of higher quality in order to improve it, having a private bathroom. Inconveniences in Elephants Sands were found at night when we wanted to charge the cameras, as it was not possible to be done in the own room.

Generally speaking, the safary was a great succes, and I remain sattisfied with its organization.

Jorge Otero Schmitt (Spain)-7 Day Victoria Falls Review

I did a safari trip with safariwthus last month and I would like to comment that the trip was simply amazing!! Everything went well from the initial arrangements to the pick up to drop off. Thank you Andre for replying my emails so promptly prior to the trip. On the first morning, Thabo the driver arrived on time. The journey to Botswana was pleasant as well.

At Botswana we travelled with No.1 Lady tour agency and I felt that that was the main highlight. The hospitality and warmth we felt from the vendor was simply amazing. Our Tour guide, Mogo was the best ever!! He was friendly and really took effort to take care of every one of us on the trip. The accommodation that was arranged for us was simply way above what we had expected.

Our tour in Zimbabwe was great as well. Bakota had everything planned nicely for us, our tour guide Solomon was also very friendly. It was the best decision I made to travel with safari with us. Thank you for having us once again. I will not hesitate to recommend you to my friends and family if anyone is planning on travelling to South africa and around. Hope to visit again soon!

 

Lynette Chen (Singapore)-7 Day Victoria Falls Review

Hannetjie was an excellent guide showing us many hidden & secret spots along the Garden Route. Really loved the beauty of the Garden Route. Accommodation was amazing!  All arrangements with Safari With Us were smooth and professional. We had a great time, thank you. 

Koen (Netherlands) – Garden Route Review

We have a very good driver guide. Everything was well-organised. Thanks much

Melvin (Singapore) – Pilanesberg Safari

Every program was perfectly arranged.

My family enjoyed 7-day tour and is happy with the memories brought to home.

I should like to extend my heartfelt appreciation towards you for all your arrangement and help for the tour.

I will definitely come back to you for my next trip to Africa.

 

Yong Joon Jin (South Korea) – Chobe Victoria Falls Safari

The safari was amazing and wonderful.We enjoyed it very much.We saw a lot of wild animals and took  very good photos.The lodges and the meals were excellent.

In the future, a good idea would be to leave Southafrica (the first leg) a bit earlier to arrive at Khama Rhino Sanctuary before sunset in order to see the animals with daylight.

Thanks to you and your collegues for the quick and good organization.We will recommend this tour to our friends.

 

Pedro (Spain) -Victoria Falls Safari

I had the best Travel agency to do a African Safari! Andre was the best travel agent and gave me the answers I needed very quickly and efficient! Thanks to Safari With Us to provide me such a great time in Africa!! Amazing!!!!

Ricardo Fontes (Brazil) – Kruger Safari

“relaxing nonexpensive luxury sarari tour”

Rating:

I join the 3-Day Madikwe Luxury Safari tour in April 2016 and find the trip very relaxing and enjoyable. The arrangement of Safari with us is good starting from the helping of booking subsequent day trip and hotel in Johannesburg .

The 2 of us were picked up by a friendly driver in the airport at good time . then drive in a private car directly to our lodging place in Madikwe in 3+ hours.( a bit far away ) . We have a break half way for some snack.

The guest house , namely“ Bush House” is great which is a small bungalow type of building housing up to ~18 guests.

I love the rich green grassland in the front of the courtyard, the small yet clean swimming pool and the underground hide next to a fresh water pond that you can watch in close proximity the elephants, buffalos that came to drink many times a day.

The breakfast , and dinner are of good quality and the morning and evening game drive is exciting yet relaxing .

I was impressed with the special floral arrangement and preparation of cake for our wedding anniversary .For the cerebration dinner , two of us spend a romatic night sitting under the moon beside the courtyard with animals in sight not too far away.

Both of us like the trip very much and hope we can return some years later .

Rick & Veronica (Hong Kong) – Madikwe Safari

We enjoyed this tour realy.

Perfect organization, very nice staff at the lodges and last but not least a lot of animals in free nature.

I especially liked the treehouse-lodge. A pitty that we could not stay longer!

Two critics from me as an european Tourist: you can make the tour a little bit more expencive but invest in a more comfortable bus and offer some cold Drinks to your guests. The Lodges should increase their prices for drinks etc. too. Its simply to cheap .

I will recommend the tour to my Friends an thank you very much

Andreas Koch (Germany) – Kruger Safari

What can I say….. What an amazing experience. The communication before I went was spot on, Andre’s instructions were clear, precise and when I arrive at the airport everything went like he said it would. I had the pleasure of meeting andre while out in South Africa. He is a top bloke, who is very passionate about South Africa and will do anything to make sure you have an enjoyable time and that you are happy with everything

The safari was everything I wanted it to be with in the first three hours of the safari we saw all of the big five. We saw countless animals; lions, buffalo, leopards, elephants (x20 and in herds), Giraffes, Rhinos (at a distant lol), Warthogs, Empla’s, Waterbucks. The animals were so close it, it was brilliant. The safari staff were great and their ability to spot the animals is just incredible.

I wasn’t really knowing what to except when it came to the accommodation. But I can report I was very happy, not 5 Star, But clean comfortable and the service from the staff was amazing, really 5 star. I really felt like they cared about my experience.

Lastly if your thinking about about going on safari do it, It will truly be the experience of a life time and If you choose South Africa, use safaribooking.com YOU won’t regret it.

Stephen Hearn (UK) – Kruger Safari

We arrived at the airport and were met by Dennis, who, throughout the whole tour, was incredible. He drove us to our lodge, entertaining us with stories throughout the journey and giving us a real insight into real South African life as we travelled towards Pilanesburg.

We arrived at the park and were given the option of a guided (by Dennis) drive tour before sunset. Despite travelling from the UK all day and the long journey, we were anxious to go on safari. On our first drive, we saw a huge Bull elephant and the elusive Leopard. Dennis seemed genuinely

awestruck as he explained that the Leopard was so rarely seen! it was a pleasure to get to know him throughout our tour. He was completely happy to answer any questions and nothing was too much for him. We were treated to sightings of four of the big five (did not see the water buffalo) on our 4 day safari. I would unreservedly recommend this company and Dennis as an option for any Safari in South Africa. It was manageable and close enough to Johannesburg for our relatively short time in SA. Keep doing what you’re doing!

Jeremy (UK) – Pilanesberg Safari

We were so impressed with safariwithus. E mails were retuned right away with all the necessary information. When it came to being picked up in Johannesburg for our game reserve trip, the driver was punctual and very safe. The game lodge we went to was excellent. The staff were attentive and the food was great. The accommodation was beautiful and clean. The entire experience beat our expectations.

Sheri (Canada) – Madikwe Safari

The tour was well designed and excuted, the activities allocated to certain days made sense. The tour guides on the safari were knowledgeable and accommodating to our requests.

Brian (Australia) – Kruger Safari

Everything was just fantastic. The guides on the safaris were all great, particularly James. He is very passionate about the animals and we learned a lot. The accommodations were also excellent. The restaurant for lunch was very good, both food and service. It is an experience that we will remember fondly for a long time. I would highly recommend your company.

Joe (USA) – Kurger Luxury

our Safari experience was really amazing!!!

Madikwe is a wonderful place, we saw all the Big 5 + cheetas and wilddog

Rooms were perfect

Ranger was very knowledgeable of the reserve and everything was very well organized

the only think they can improve is the quality of the food for lunch and dinner. Not adequate for a luxury lodge like TAU

transportation for an to Madikwe went well,

at the end, myself and my family  had a great experience. The cost of the Safari is very high, but I think is worthwhile

Edoardo (Italy) – Madikwe Safari Review

Our safari trip and experience was fantastic!  Your driver was on time, very friendly and a safe driver.  Motswiri Lodge exceeded our expectations in comfort and service.  The meals and room were great, and the animals made several visits to the on-site water hole.

The safari rides were exceptional–in three rides we got to see all the big five, had great weather, and just enjoyed everything.

Our experience was once-in-a-lifetime.  

Jon and Trish Kimminau (USA) – Madikwe Review

It was a thoroughly enjoyable day and we ended up seeing a lot of animals. Our guide Johan was a good character and he kept us entertained throughout the day. We would come back and do it again. 

Tom Hall (UK) – Pilanesberg Game Drive

Our Madikwe Safari experience was wonderful. The booking and transfers to and from the reserve were very smooth. The Bush Lodge was extremely welcoming (including generously providing honeymoon champagne) and our guide was excellent. We had good luck seeing a variety of animals on the drives and at the nearby waterhole. Hopefully we will be able to make it back next time we visit South Africa.

W Laursen (USA) – Madikwe Safari

Everything was perfect, the facilities very good, the guides were very nice and knowledgeable, no problem and we were lucky with some animals difficult to see. I was quite happy. I hope to come back in the future. 

Ramon Pons (Spain) – Pilanesberg Camping

We did a Pilanesberg camping safari. Everything was well organized, our guide was friendly, helpful and informative.  The extra visit to Lesedi cultural village was really worth it. Was all in all a great trip.

Barbara Kilgour (New Zealand) – Pilanesberg Safari

Amazing Safari, nice people and good service  Beautiful experience! Everything was great and well organised! I did the 3 days Safari (unfortunately I couldn’t spend more time there) and was more than I expected. Also, Andre was very helpful all the time and went to the airport to wait with me for the shuttle (I was a solo traveller). I do recommend Safari With Us!

Milena Cervenka (Brazil) – Kruger Safari

Great safari trip end2end. Everything worked out very smoothly for my 3D2N Kruger safari from Johannesburg. Very safe, and exceeding my expectations.

Johan Wallman (Sweden) – Kruger Safari

We did this day tour as we had a long layover in Johannesburg on our way from Brazil to Australia. We paid in advance via Paypal. The tour was beyond our expectations. Our guide Dennis was very kind and professional. Cradle of humankind and the Sterkfontein Caves was worth the visit and this was best way to enjoy long stay over between flights.

Milton Kahan (Brazil) – Cradle of Humankind

Was a great trip. Everything was well organized and our guide was friendly and informative. Had some great sightings in Pilanesberg Reserve. The extra Lesedi visit was really worth it.

Barbara & Ross Kilgour (New Zealand) – Pilanesberg & Lesedi

This safari was arranged for my daughter and wife from US. Their comment was “it was excellent and a great experience, the guide was just fantastic and we had lots of fun”. To add to their experience I felt very happy with the way the whole booking was held. The money transfer was easy, they issued a receipt promptly, the best part was they provided excellent service in picking them up from airport to take to hotel and then picking up for Pilanesberg safari trip in the morning at the agreed upon time. I was dealing with Andre, he was just superb and very professional, he kept me informed about my family’s whereabouts via emails and provided lots of information so they will have a good safe vacation in South Africa. Book with them with confidence and you will enjoy your trip and have peace of mind.

Akansha (USA – Houston) – Pilanesberg Resort Safari

Quick email response, early morning pickup was on time. Our guide Adolf was very informative and was really good at spotting things.

Shyanna (Canada) – Pilanesberg Safari

Safari With Us and their staff provided a first rate safari experience for us. Very friendly, knowledgeable guides that were fully committed to providing fabulous game viewing experiences. We highly recommend Safari With Us and look forward to travelling with them again.

Bill & Cathy Rothwell (Canada) – Botswana & Vic Falls Tour

An amazing experience !! The Kruger Tree House Safari was great!!!! Everything was as they described it!! The Tree Houses were awesome!!! very cozy but at the same time make you feel like you where in the middle of the bush (you were in the middle of the bush hahaha) I really enjoyed been there, the people was very very nice! Food was incredible! Just good vibes around and all the game views were amazing!!! Its an unforgettable experience and highly recommended!!!

Adam (UK) – Kruger Safari

10/10 for Safari With Us. What an amazing experience. Pilanesberg was fantastic. I saw a huge variety of wildlife including lions, rhinos and much more. Huge thanks to my guide Dennis. It was a pleasure to spend time with him and benefit from his knowledge of the animals, the park and area. The camping braai, night sky and stars added to this truly unforgettable experience.

Karl Pople (Canada) – Camping in Pilanesberg

Great game drive. Saw many animals including Elephant, Hippo and Antelope. Great service from SafariWithUs.

Mark Glynn – Pilanesberg Game Drive, Solo Traveller UK

It was amazing! We did not expect to see so many animals!  Great memories. Thanks Safari With Us.
