"I left my heart in Kruger.."
From the beginning, communication with Christine from Wildlife Safaris were smooth and informative. She explained in brief about our safari package and the itineraries and proposed a good hotels in Joburg.
Our guide was George, a very knowledgeable and passionate about animals in safari. He's so friendly, entertaining and always chitchatting with my 5year old son. George was creative enough to keep my son entertain and focus during the game drives by introducing spot the animals game.
Don't forget to enjoy the night sky in Kruger. Amazing view of stars & milky ways.
Overall we are very happy and satisfied by having George as our guide and choosing Wildlife Safaris. Highly recommended and professional staff.
