BEST TRIP EVER! I was very nervous about the whole idea of going on safari. Kruger National Park exceeded my expectations and much of that was down to my experience with Nhongo Safaris, I felt extremely safe and well looked after, Amanda our guide went above and beyond to make sure we had a great experience. Under promise and over achieve she did!
I will be back and will be recommending Nhongo Safari’s to anyone who will listen!
Thank you again, I’d give you more stars if I could!
Our Nhongo Safari focused on seeing and learning about the park's animals and ecosystems. We saw the big five and so much more- a leopard in a tree with a kill, mating lions (interesting), elephants up close, black rhinos, a poached rhino (very sad), hyenas, hippos, giraffes... Our guide Amanda was dedicated and passionate about the park and its animals. Her experience and knowledge as a guide made the trip a once in a lifetime event. We were glad we chose the 7 day safari - there is so much to see. If you want to experience, the wildlife of Africa, Nhongo is a great choice.
From beginning to end all the staff we interacted with was great and professional. Booking was easy and straight forward. This was our first safari but it will surely wont be the last!.
But the highlight of the trip was our awesome guide, Michael. That guy sure loves his job and it shows!!!!. Very professional, knowledgeable and great fun!!!
Below is a review given by one of our clients on a "Six Day Safari".
We had a 6 days private safari with Nhongo. Our guide was Amanda and she was wanderful. She took care of everything, explain everything and was very knowlageable. We saw leopard and chita and many other animals.
Nhongo also upgrade our stay to ensure we will have wonderful time and we did.
Thank you Amanda and Verity for an unforgettable safari.
So frustrating... I am very very upset about the experience I just had with Nhongo Safaris. Kruger Park is amazing, please go there, it totally worth. I only chose the wrong agency to go with. Nhongo is super well rated however they charged my friends and I quite a lot of money and fit us 3 in a small room, even they had sold us 2 bedrooms. Nobody came to clean our room for the first day. The guide we had was good, can’t complain about him - Clint his name. My main issue was with the Nhongo’s management: Verity. I tried to wire them money before the trip taking place but it didn’t go through once my bank was seeing the wire transfer as potentially a fraud, I offered to pay locally and so Verity agreed with that. Unfortunately once I got there she changed wanted me to pay in cash only (it is a National Park, I couldn’t take 400usd out of a ATM where the daily limit is way lower). She made the chaos in my life, involved me in such an embarrassing situation that I will never forget. Ahe reached out to my friends chasing them for money, she ordered our guide to stop the car in the middle of the jungle until she got the money, pretty much she forced one of my friends to pay it on my behalf without asking me for it. There were 8 people in the pickup truck and everyone was watching the car stopped because of this. I have never felt so embarrassed and frustrated in my whole life. Even I said I could wire from another bank, pay it on a card machine, I offered to go to her office in Johannesburg, I offered plenty of alternative solutions and she made this to me.
Other than that We made good friends, we took awesome pictures, so please go to Kruger Park, just don’t join Nhongo Safaris!
