"A Splendid Experience"
We expected to enjoy the safari, but the experience completely outweighed our expectations. Netto (a great guy) was a kind and generous host, as well as being very well informed and very interesting. Shadrack Khosa was our driver and also very knowledgeable about the game, and birds. We saw plenty of both, and the open vehicles are fantastic for viewing - we were only five people in a nine-seater so were probably spoiled for space. The Kruger Park is one of my favourite places, although I have not been there for over 20 years, and my partner (from Italy) has never been there before; we were pleased to see that it has not been spoiled (at least in the areas we were able to visit in two days) by becoming too commercialised. Stayed overnight at Pretoriuskop, the bungalow smelling wonderfully of thatch, and the shower / toilet blocks were very clean. Netto presented us with a fabulous dinner when we returned from our sunset drive, which we enjoyed immensely by candlelight and starlight. All in all this was a splendid experience, managed and organised impeccably by Netto and team, and I would recommend it, and MBOMBELA EXPERIENCE TOURS to anybody.

"Perfect Weekend in Kruger Park"
We had booked the 2 days safari in the Kruger Park and we were lucky enough to see the Big Five and many more animals. My parents and I were the only clients during this tour so we had the jeep and a guide for ourselves! I thought that the description wasn't very clear so here's what we got:
Netto came to get us at our hotel at 5:20 and we started the safari at 7:00 with another guide. Since it was raining and the temperature was a bit cold, we were given blankets and ponchos, which was very appreciated. Then, we drove all day, stopping only 45 minutes for breakfast (at your own cost) and 1h for lunch (also at your own cost). We drove to the hotel in the park at 15:45 for the check in and left again at 16:15 for the sunset drive, which is organize by the hotel, so it was in a bigger jeep with many more customers. At 19:15, we came back to the hotel and went at Wimpy for dinner and this time, the meal was included. The next day, we started driving around 5:30, again stopping only for breakfast and for dinner. Around 14-15:00, our guide left us at the park gate so the driver could bring us back to our hotel. As you can see, there is A LOT of safari for the price!!! It wasn't my first safari and I know how expensive it is usually. Our guide was very nice and he give us a lot of explanations on animals behaviour and he answered all our questions during the weekend.

We were expecting a couple of hours for each safari drive!! But the great surprice was that we were almost the whole day driving everywhere in the park. We stopped just a few times to have breakfast and lunch, but the rest of the time we have been looking for the big 5

"Great Times with JJ and Netto"
Our safari guide JJ is possibly the gratest. He went all in for getting our 5/5 in two days! And brought it home!
Netto was our driver and also our chef for the evening and he is the coolest guy there is. Lovely times! Thanks guys.

Mbombela Experience is amazing! Netto could not have been a more perfect tour guide. We booked a sunrise safari drive which I highly recommend as you'll see some animals that you would not see during the hot days. We stayed in huts at Pretoriuskop which is inside Kruger and Netto made us a fantastic dinner. The next day we spent the entire day on a safari. We left at 6 am and had seen more animals before 10 am than most people had during their whole time. Leaving early was ideal as the animals will hide during the heat of the day. JJ was our driver and he was incredible, he knew that park so well and spotted things that were almost invisible to the rest of us. The next day Netto took us on a tour of the Blyde River Canyon, the views in the canyon were breathtaking, do not miss it! Netto was so helpful, he helped us book a lodge when we had failed to do so and made sure we got to do everything we wanted to. He was truly a joy to spend time with and I cannot wait to come back to South Africa and see what else he will have to offer!
