Amazing Kalahari Safari!
Nov 2020 • Friends
After having now gone on multiple safaris I can say that Bumhi safaris was truly an unforgettable experience. Tense and Ivana are some of the nicest people you will ever meet and they truly went out of their way to make sure that our trip was as comfortable as possible. We did a 1 week safari in the Kgalagadi transfrontier Park. Tende is an excellent driver and we always felt safe in his car. We saw a wide variety of animals including the honey badger, cheetahs, giraffe and of course many lions. The Kalahari is a unique spot for safari as it is more off the beaten path as compared with more popular spots such as Kruger. Nonetheless the scenery was certainly unique and we were not disappointed with the animals we saw. Only small downside is that afternoons were very hot and we did not drive around too much in mid afternoon heat. The campsites we stayed in all had pools which was much necessary. Food was absolutely amazing. Tende and Ivana go out of their way to make excellent home style food that is fresh every day. They even somehow made fresh creme brûlée during the trip which was easily the best dessert I’ve ever had on Safari! They also provided wine/beer for the entire trip which was very welcome. Both of them have eagle eyes for spotting wildlife and we saw waaaay more animals than we would have doing a self drive. Overall Kgalgadi is definitely an area of South Africa worth visiting and I would choose nobody other than Bumhi to take you on your journey!

What a gift of LIFE and joy of a Lifetime!
Jun 2019
My husband and I have spent the most amazing end of year holidays with the Bumhi team. Being big “cats” lovers and fans, they suggested bringing us to the Kalahari for the utterly unique red-sand open-sky experience. We’ve been dreaming of Kalahari through movies and books, so we knew instantly – we had a winner! And still, we could not have imagined what was yet to come…

The scenery, the sightings, the learnings, the beauty of silence and beauty of sounds, those of the desert and those of animals, the sunsets, the moonrises, the little details throughout the day… and the food, ah the food! Pure bliss.

We were super lucky to be accompanied by both Tende and Ivana, which gave the trip a whole another dimension. Their passion for the world, wildlife, nature, local tribes and culture, and their general joy of life was priceless.

The only downside was having to leave…

Most authentic safari experience ever!
Oct 2019
I have been on many safaris throughout Tanzania, Zambia, Mozambique, Namibia and South-Africa. In October we did a safari in Zambia and Botswana and I can honestly say that this is the most authentic safari I have ever done! We've travelled the national parks in two weeks and saw amazing sceneries and wildlife. Tendekay is an amazing guide with extensive knowledge about the wildlife. He is an excellent chef as well, it's amazing what he can prepare on a bushfire!

Thanks a million Martijn for your kind words. It has always been a pleasure to guide you over the years and to show you different parts of Africa. Wildlife, the bush, African night sky, campfire and bush-cuisine is our language. Looking forward to having you back in the wild with us!!

Once in a lifetime experience with once in a lifetime guides
Nov 2019 • Friends
Visiting the Kalahari will be one of the best decisions you’ve made. It is a low key hotspot, with incredible wildlife sightings but with a fraction of the human sightings that you would have to otherwise deal with at more popular parks like Kruger. During our week there, we saw a honey badger, cheetahs, giraffes, oryx, and over 20 lions. An essential part of your safari experience, aside from the animals, will be the guides that can make or break your experience. You will not find a cuter couple or a better pair of guides than Tende or Ivana. They work incredibly well together and went to the utmost lengths to make sure that all of our needs and comforts were met. My mom and myself are vegetarian and Ivana and Tende made delicious vegetarian meals everyday that were of different varieties and all very delicious! Whether you’re craving Italian, Mexican, Asian or traditional African Ivana and Tende have it covered! They even made a different dessert each day and provided more than ample amount of wine and beer to provide a perfect ending to the night. Overall, by the end of the trip Ivana and Tende felt like family and I cannot wait to come back to Africa to experience another adventure with them!

Dear Ani, thank you so much for your kind and touching words. We have indeed had an incredible time together, Mama Nature was generous to the core in granting us rare and precious sightings every single day. A clear sign when energies are pure, kind and aligned... The family sentiment you mention is entirely mutual - you, your mom and Kev have a special place in our hearts. The drongo - aka King of Imitation - is using all sorts of voices and animal sounds calling you all back to Africa! :) We are super eager to see you again soon!

Excellent Kgalagadi safari experience!
Nov 2019
In November, my two friends and I visited Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park with Bumhi Safaris for 7D/6N. It was an EXCELLENT experience and I have nothing but positive remarks about Kgalagadi and Bumhi Safaris. Specifically, the wildlife sightings were plentiful. We saw lions every morning and evening, many kills including cheetah kill and unsuccessful lion hunt at the waterhole at night, several rare sightings such as honey badger, and many special and unique sightings. We stayed at a combination of Matta Matta, Nossob, and Twee Rivieren. We camped at all locations. Bumhi Safaris was excellent. Very professional, courteous, thoughtful, they always went the extra mile and never cut corners. I do not have any complaints. The food they cooked was restaurant quality. Creme brulee desert, etc. They accommodated all of our requests during the trip and beforehand. I thought the price paid for the safari experience was a good value. When I visit Kgalagadi in the future, I will book with Bumhi Safaris again. Their vehicle was comfortable, reliable, Tende spotted everything we could hope to see including some very majestic lion sightings in the distance allowing us to follow him as he approached the road at a later point in time. Their team of two is very professional, honest, and cares about the environment/animals.
