The Detail

The Kruger National Park is the largest game reserve in South Africa, covering almost two million hectares. The diversity of ecosystems spanned by the Park is home to an astounding array of wildlife and birds.

The 15 loft-style suites are elevated on stilts along the cliff side, blending seamlessly with the natural surroundings. Full-length glass walls on three sides allow for spectacular game viewing and 180-degree panoramic views. Each supremely luxurious suite boasts a full en-suite bathroom with additional outdoor shower. The spacious living area flows out to an expansive timber deck with a day bed – a magical space to spend the night under the silver-speckled skies with the sounds of the wild to lull you to sleep.

The lounge area with its log fire and comfortable sofas is a wonderful place to relax. The expertly prepared dishes are filled with simple flavours and fresh ingredients, and served either in the dining area or around a crackling log fire in the boma. Guests may request dinners to be served on their private decks.

Between safari activities, guests may cool off in the sparkling lap pool, or indulge in the range of revitalising and relaxing treatments available at the Bush Spa. A well-equipped gym, archery and mountain biking are available for the more active guests.

Expert guides and trackers accompany guests on walking safaris, which provide a wonderful opportunity to track animals on foot and discover the secrets of the plants and landscapes.

The Nwanetsi Concession covers four distinct ecological zones, with a great biodiversity of birds and wildlife. The area is home to the Big Five, including famously large prides of Mountain lion. In addition, there are frequent sightings of cheetah, wild dog, hyena, giraffe, zebra, sable, waterbuck, hippo, wildebeest, kudu, and crocodile.

Birdlife is prolific with over 300 species recorded in the region. Five vulture species are present: White-backed, Lappet-faced, White-headed, Hooded, and less frequently, the Cape vulture. The red-billed, and the endangered yellow-billed oxpeckers, are also residents of the region. Other notable species include the African Pipit, Chestnut-backed sparrow-lark, Harlequin quail, and Southern black tit.

An absolutely amazing place with gorgeous views. Food and accommodation was 5 star all the way. The staff couldn't do enough to make your stay enjoyable and the Safari tour ranger and tracker go the extra mile to make it worth your time and money..... I would certainly recommend asking the front of house to setup the outside bed for a beautiful night under the stars.

The location is stunning, and the hotel's design was equally fantastic, but the staff really disappointed us.Once we arrived at the lodge we were greated by a lady from reception, who gave us our first taste of the hotel's staff. All of us thought of her as very cold (almost like a teacher), who took everything very seriously. I have to say attention to detail is definitely not a bad thing, but her attitude was not personal, and we did not feel open to ask her anything we wanted.In due course we were shown the room, which was beautiful, but not practical. There was no curtain for the extra bed and the mosquito nets had holes - that completely defeats the point! Also, the rails on the balcony were very dodgy and unstable, and considering we were so high up, this made us feel very unsafe. However the views were amazing, and it was beautifully furnished to match the wonderful safari-fit location.During our stay, we took part in some activities that were very fun for all of us and, of course, some game drives.The game drives were very nice, and we got close to some of the animals (though not as close as another lodge we had been at), but the ranger had an appauling attitude... At some points I started getting nervous being too close to some of the Big Five, and the ranger was annoyed, and didn't budge the jeep. In the other lodge we stayed at in the Kruger, the ranger there helpfully explained things and made sure you understood and felt comfortable, whereas this one in Singita was rushed and rude.In general, we saw many staff as the ones I described above, and we did not feel we were given everything the Kruger had to offer.

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.
