I researched many tour companies for our Kruger safari and found this to be the best both from value as well as service perspective. Verity who arranged our tour is excellent. Very fast response time and very easy to communicate with. She catered to our vegetarian diet needs and put us in a camp that provides good choice of vegetarian... More

We decided to book with Nhongo as it operates its own tours rather than acting as an agent and we were not disappointed. Everything is very well organised and the staff are all very friendly. Highly recommend using them. My wife and I went on the three day, two night safari and were collected from Jo'burg for the 4 hour... More

Kara was our guide and her knowledge surrounding the animals and the Kruger was vast and detailed. We were lucky and sighted the big 5 in two days. Kara had a fascinating fact lined up for every animal we came across – having her was practically like having an encyclopedia on the matter. The game viewer that Nhongo Safaris uses... More

Our experience with Nhongo was fantastic. It is overwhelming when researching safaris in Kruger so after reading the reviews here we found that Nhongo had flexible, reasonably priced safaris that matched what we were looking for. The communication prior to the trip by Verity was fantastic. Then on our selected day Dez picked us up in Johannesburg, with a suprise... More

My wife and I did a 4 day safari combined with the Panorama tour. The experience was nothing less than unbelievable. Everything went great, from the pickup at Johannesburg 'til our way back. And our ranger Gert holds the main responsibility for such an amazing experience. He not only showed immense knowledge about the local nature as also is just... More

We booked through Viator and were collected from our hotel in Johannesburg at 6.30. The transfer took about four hours and we were soon putting our bags in our rooms at the camp. We had an afternoon game drive during which we saw various animals and birds including a lion and a leopard. We returned to the lodge for an... More

On time pick-up and drop-off as schedule! Very friendly and knowledgeable guides for each time. Responsible and equally for each guest. We did the 4 days Kruger National park, the shuttle with Denz(Not sure) perfectly arrived at OR Tambo airport shuttle bus terminal.

We really like Nhongo Safaris. Transfers from Johanesburg to Nelspruit were punctual, quick and comfortable. The driver is very kind. Our guide was Amanda, who cared about everything. With our transfer from Nelspruit to Hazyview, our accommodation at the Numbi Hotel and our game drives. We were lucky to spot all Big 5. We spotted giraffes, hippos, rhinos, elephants, wild... More

We had a great experience with Nhongo, from the initial call and arranging with Verity. Our driver to the park, Des, was a lovely man. Keen to offer his own knowledge and look out through wild country drive from JHB to Kruger. Our guide, Gert, truly loved his job. Even on his days off he would go in search of... More
