We had a guided day tour with Ted and it was worth every penny and many more. Ted is a very knowledgeable guide with lots of interesting facts about the park and animals in it. He also has a very good eye for animals - we would not have spotted half of them without his help! Having said that, despite being sat in a vehicle for most of the day, it definitely felt like a very interactive experience, as Ted encouraged us to keep an eye out for any animals he might not have spotted and I can only admire his patience early in the journey as he would stop the vehicle nearly every time I would shout - there's something moving in the bush, just to realise it was one of thousands of impalas roaming the park. We were lucky enough to spot four out of the Big Five and on most occasions the animals would be really close - we witnessed a buffalo stampede, saw an elephant breeding herd crossing the road right in front of us and even saw two lionesses and three cubs making their way to the river. We felt very well looked after and highly recommend this safari trip.
We had a wonderful experience with Ciska our guide. We were picked up as agreed at 5am from our hotel in Nelspruit and spent an amazing day marveling at the beautiful animals. We were very lucky to have been the able to see the Big Five.
Myself and friend travelled to Kruger park on 14th June 2019. Our guide Mr Dave picked up us from Nelspruit hotel at 5 am. We travelled in a safari vehicle and reached Kruger gate in time.
Mr Dave is an experienced and joyful person. He took us to different strategic places to show the animals. We could see all the bug 5 and other animals. He also explained about their natural behaviour. We travelled a lot in the park. He provided us a good vegetarian lunch as requested.
It was a wonderful tour.
Thanks to Mr Dave and Viator.
We were greeted promptly by our very knowledgeable driver/tour guide & ended up being the only ones on the tour. The driver/tour operator seemed genuinely interested in making it a good experience for us & never rushed the experience. She had so much knowledge about the park & animals & was such a great driver in the park & on the busy highways!
What a great tour/tour group! Hotel pick up was on time and early. They pick you up in a safari vehicle with blankets for the crisp ride when the top is off. Much to our surprise, we were the only ones on the tour -- but even if there were others, it would have been a small group which is always nice. Our time at Kruger was wonderful and our guide absolutely fantastic and knowledgeable. She had packed lunch/drinks for us which was a nice touch. We also had time to go through all the gift shops, but the bulk of the time was driving through the park and seeing the amazing animals.
It was an amazing and relaxing tour with David who knows the Park very good.David was very punctual and knows the rules and the time to enter the Park and enjoy the visit.He also knows aller thé strategic places to see the Big Five.
I recommend this tour to enjoy the Park one day.
Thank you David.
