My family and I used Khalanga Safaris on a full day Kruger park guided tour and another day on the Panorama route. Both were very exceptional experiences. The vastness of the Kruger and spread of the panorama route demand that the tour guide understands the local context (knowledge) , offer flexibility during the safaris and of-course be very professional. Khalanga had all these and the knowledge and context aspects were especially invaluable. I Highly recommend the safari company. Tips: ask the guide lots of questions. The guys are very knowledgeable and you will get information that is not in the guide books😄👍🏽

I spent 3 1/2 days with Shoes and couldn't have been happier with my experience. We went on a total of 4 game drives - 3 in Kruger National Park and 1 in a private game reserve. We also spent a half day on a community tour and a half day on the Panorama Route. Shoes went above and beyond in his hospitality and goal to make the experience as best as possible. He tweaked the schedule based on weather and sought specific parts of the park that he realized his guests might have more or less interest in based on conversations. For some background - I am an American citizen living abroad and was traveling to South Africa for the first time. This trip was in December of 2020, during the COVID pandemic, and Shoes and everyone involved with the trip went out of their way to ensure maximum levels of health and safety. Shoes is AMAZING. His family is Tsonga and he was born in Kruger and has been living in or around the park his entire life. Not only is his knowledge of the animals and the environment overwhelming, but his passion for his craft is palpable. I am jealous of Shoes because I wish I was so passionate about anything as much as he is about sharing his expertise with respect to conservationism and the animal life in the park. One of the highlights of the trip was simply getting to know Shoes personally - learning all the history of the area, the languages he speaks, why things are a certain way. Remarkable. Specific to the aspects of the tour itself - we were able to see all 5 Big Game animals in one day, and even saw a pride of lions having a meal (something Shoes anticipated based on the location of a local watering hole and the recency of a rainstorm. Remarkable foresight and expertise). The community tour consisted of stopping for a beer and conversations with a few local people about their lifestyle and village activities during holidays. The Panorama Route was absolutely as advertised with respect to the breathtaking beauty and uniqueness of each attraction. I can't emphasize this enough - if you are even considering a trip to Kruger, PLEASE book your experience with Khalanga Safaris and Shoes. This trip was once in a lifetime and I am so grateful to Shoes and everyone involved with Khalanga for making it happen. Call Khalanga - you won't regret it!

Shoes Khalanga was patient and knowledgeable about the history, movements and vegetation of the area. He answered all our questions and drove such that we get to enjoy the scenic views and observe animal movements. It was incredible. Thank you for the driving trip as well.

We had an amazing full day private game drive at the Kruger National Park with Shoes. He shared lots of stories and knowledge which made the trip that much more better. You can definitely tell that Shoes has lot of experience and really knows his stuff. During the midday portion of our drive we encountered a pair of female and male lions off in the bushes. However, at the time there were already 4-5 other cars in the area making viewing relatively difficult. Shoes trusted his instinct and double back. Lo and behold, the pair of lions crossed the street with us being the only one there and only a mere few feet away. That sums up the highlight of our trip!
