Just returned from a 2.5 week trip to Africa. The highlight of our four lodge stays was Malamala. The broad range of wildlife, plants and trees and the variety of terrain was noteworthy. In addition, the well-appointed lodge suites, great food and extremely knowledgeable rangers added to our enjoyment of Africa. In particular, we found Grant, our ranger for three days, added to our Africa experience. His range of knowledge was not surpassed during our visit. We particularly enjoyed opportunities to take short hikes during our game drives. Visiting a private game reserve provided up-close game viewing and no more than three of vehicles at any Malamala game viewing stop. These benefits were well worth a Malamala stay.

This was our first Safari and what a way to begin! They are not kidding when they say you can see the Big 5; we saw them every day of our 4 night trip. The ranger, Robin was fantastic. His knowledge of all the various species, from their habits to their personalities was a real education. We spent time with several different Leopards as well as the Stixx Lion pride. We were fortunate to be in room 17 at Sable and we could watch the comings and goings by the River. I will never forget my time in Mala Mala. It was magical.

When we arrived at MalaMala, we were greeted by Roan, who would be our Ranger (and protector!) during our four night stay at the reserve. Our room was AMAZING; 2 separate baths and dressing areas and a lovely, comfy bed...but the best part was the view from our window! We looked towards the river and could observe elephants, Cape Buffalo, nyala, kudu and other animals as they went to drink and/or play in the water.The whole camp is ungated, which is why I said that Roan was also our protector! He and Mike would escort us to our room at the end of the evening and make sure we were safely inside. He admonished us NOT to leave our room until the next morning!Every one of the staff and rangers were extremely efficient, kind and accommodating. They even arranged for us to have our morning coffee in the bush. And the bush drives were out of this world! Before we arrived at MalaMala, we had toured Kruger and the drives were good! But, if Roan or Mike spotted something off the path, they drove right through the bushes to show us cheetahs, leopards, cape buffalo, zebras, giraffes, ETC. from up close!

Having done previous photo safaris, we thought we had seen luxury in Africa, but this topped all the rest and as for the wildlife -- it was in the top 2 of the best game viewing experience ever, only rivaled by Botswana. And the 2 cannot fairly be compared. Our every need was seen to and we chose to stay out all day most days to see more wildlife. The chef and his staff packed amazing breakfast and lunch baskets and we had coffee at sunrise w/some incredible views. Can't say enough great things about the entire staff. Every single member gives 110% to the guests. Sadly, We barely had time to use our private plunge pool. The villas are huge and so luxurious. Separate dressing rooms/baths for myself and my hubby. amazing!!!!!
Norjen
Absolutely fantastic experience. Never thought for a moment the we would be able to get so close to the animals. The rangers were wonderful and had excellent knowledge of the area and of the animals.Accommodation first class as was the food and service. View from the swimming pool was to die for. Would love to have stayed longer!!

Unorgettable trip in South Africa
We have spent 12 days as a family in South Africa with my 3 children and my wife who is in a wheelchair. Thanks to Pascal, Safari.com consultant, we were able to spend an unforgettable moment with a great program while being well accompanied despite our constraints. I recommand particularly the "Monwana game lodge" for a safari in Hoedspruit. It's an amazing place with very nice people and a real family atmosphere. Thank you to the entire Safari.com team for this unforgettable trip.

Superior service, knowledgeable, transparent, amazing can-do attitude
These guys get 10/10. I have booked with them a few times. To Kruger National Park, including both public and private(concession) camps, flights and car hire. Their senior agent, Dolan is exceptional. Nothing is too much trouble. Attention to detail, transparency, and 'can-do' attitude are out of the ordinary. I recently came into contact with Tanya at safari.com as well. It looks like all their agents are similarly well trained. Thank you. I cannot recommend Dolan and his team highly enough.

Cape Town miracle
I was in Cape Town, South Africa recently for an athletic competition and had allowed myself a week of personal time to relax and properly conclude the trip, but had not bothered to plan a safari to occupy the time. I was skeptical of the cost and whether I would enjoy the experience, however a couple days into that final week it occurred to me, in a bit of a panic attack, what a waste it would be not to take advantage of this opportunity. I hopped online and started looking at flights to Johannesburg (almost all the safaris in SA start there with an early morning pick up), but it was basically impossible to get a flight early enough and/or to coordinate with the multiple safaris operating in or just outside of Kruger. With no apparent options available to turn my remaining 4 1/2 days into even a 3 day safari I stumbled on the most obvious website one could imagine, Safari.com. I'd completely given up negotiating all the variables on my own but here was a safari travel agent that might be able to help me .. and they were based right out of Cape Town, literally a stones throw from my lodgings. Serendipity, or so i hoped. I immediately sent out an email and crossed my fingers .. for roughly an hour and a half, at which point Dolan from Safari.com responded to me requesting I give him a call so that we could expedite potential arrangements. My in country phone plan wasn't able to make calls, but we arranged for him to call me and not 3 hours after being in the grip of despair Dolan got through to me and far from notifying me of how absurd it was to hold out hope for a literally, last minute safari adventure with barely 4 days available to me, he had already worked out all the details I'd sent and created a preliminary safari trip that would bypass Johannesburg airport for a flight the next morning to a closer, much, much smaller airport where I would be picked up taken, not to a 3 day safari, but a full 4 day safari, then back to the tiny, tiny airport for a return flight to Cape Town with 2 hours to spare for my return leg all the way home. It almost feels like an afterthought, after the minor miracle Dolan was able to conjure up, but the safari itself at Simbavati Lodge was just an absolutely stunning experience. The single "tent" he booked me was as luxurious as any 4 star hotel I've stayed in, the game drives, one every morning, one every evening were more amazing than I could have ever imagined, and the food, 3 meals a day with snacks and an open bar was sublime. I could go on about the wonderful staff, or the wonderful other safari goers you can meet and grab a drink with, or the different animals walking through the open lodge facilities daily .. but I've gone on long enough. I'll simply conclude by saying .. safari, absolutely, yes, do it, it is amazing. And when you do decide, Safari.com will do you right and if you have the pleasure of working with Dolan, do give him my thanks .. the entire experience was the best part of my trip :)

A great company
What to say! We planned a South African Safari for 2020 with Safari.com. We researched companies and took a chance on one we had never heard of before. Henry Franklin was our agent, we gave him our budget and wish list. He came up with a wonderful looking trip and we made our choices! Then came Covid, preventing us from going. We couldn’t have been in better hands. Henry rebooked everything for the next year. He kept us updated on how things looked there. When in 2021, we decided it still looked iffy, he rebooked us a second time for 2022. We couldn’t have been happier with the service we had in a rough time for all. We had a wonderful experience on our trip when we finally got to go!! Henry had everything so well organized and gave us a detailed list of what transfer companies would be meeting us and when. When Airlink bumped us and put us on standby returning from Victoria Falls, we called the concierge number Henry had given us and Catherine worked hard on this and got us back on our flight. The Safari.com team had our back and we have no regrets. Would definitely use them again. Our lodging was wonderful, saw the big 5 within first 2 drives. Henry definitely knew the territory and did a great job matching what we wanted with where he suggested we go and stay. Thanks Safari.com, Henry and Catherine!

I've recently interacted with Dolan and hands down he's been the best travel agent that I've every worked with. He was a wealth of experience and knowledge which shows volumes. He took into consideration my budget and my individual needs to tailor make a package with recommendations for my preference,he knows Kruger and Greater Kruger like the back of his hands and I will wholeheartedly recommended his services. He is truly an asset to his institution.
