Booked a private, full-day tour of Kruger National Park with Vula and what a great experience all around! Our driver and guide, Ciska, was friendly, professional, knowledgeable. It was obviously important to her that we see as many animals as possible and boy did we! She had extensive knowledge of all the plants, birds and animals. We ended up being... More

We had a three day tour to Kruger and spent 1.5 days with Jurie van Staden from Vula Tours. Jurie was a fantastic guide, absolutely passionate about his job, extremely knowledgeable about the Park and all the animals and the vegetation and super helpful with any request. We saw all the big five and a large number of other animals,... More

I visited South Africa in the summer of 2012 and booked a safari in the Kruger park with Leon, the owner of Vula tours. Our guide Jess gave us the tour in German and as she'd studied different things within the field - such as animal psychology- she made the tour informative, interesting and fun! I went with another volunteer... More

My mother and I were in Kruger August 20-22, and did one afternoon drive and one morning drive with Cassy, and one full-day Panoramic Route with Hans. A huge thanks to both of them and to everyone at Vula who made our visit so special, and took such great care with our transfers and activities. I cannot say enough nice... More

Had an amazing day in Kruger. I saw loads of animals and learned a lot. My guide, Mario Paul, clearly had a deep understanding of the park and its animals. We had a unique opportunity to watch wild dog and he didn't rush at all even though the tours time was up. Huge thumbs up to Mario!

We had a two day game drive in Kruger Park this August as part of a two week trip to South Africa. The tour were excellently led by our guide Boris who successfully navigated our way to seeing the 'Big 5' and much, much more! Boris' knowledge of both the park and the wildlife within it gave us a unique... More

I had a fantastic experience with Vula tours, especially guides Juri and Boris! Our guides were not only able to safely transport our huge group, but managed to make us feel completely at ease in the South African Bush. Our guides were knowledgeable and sociable - Boris even managed to remember all our names (twelve of us) after an entire... More

Jurie, David, and Boris were all excellent guides and drivers who know so much about wildlife and South Africa in general. Our group had an excellent time getting to know them, seeing amazing animals, and exploring South Africa. They were also always timely and able to handle complicated logistics. I would definitely recommend!

What a fantastic service--we worked closely with Vula Tours throughout our three-week trip to South Africa with fourteen Stanford students, and cannot speak highly enough of our drivers Jurie, David and Boris. Their deep expertise in local wildlife and culture made each game drive a wonderful learning experience for all of us!
