Description

Experience no less than four incredible days of thrills and excitement as you embark on this family adventure safari.

After a leisurely trip from Johannesburg or O.R Tambo airport to Nelspruit, you begin your Adventure Safari from the very first day. These are heady days too. Spectacular dawn patrols in open safari vehicles through the thick of the bushveld – discovering Africa’s wildest and most beautiful. On land, your experienced Safari guide points out the predators and those who stick together to survive them, like Zebra, Wildebeest and a myriad of Antelope.

In the water we spot the wide yawning and very dangerous hippo keeping a cautious distance from crocodiles who lay in wait for prey on the watering hole banks. The skies are filled with indigenous birdlife so plentiful your binoculars never seem to rest.

There are no less than six magnificent guided safaris, the highlight of which is a night safari when, with a spotlight scanning the veld, you spot night creatures like Owls, scavenging Hyenas and the elusive Leopard on the prowl.

Come and join us for this Adventure Safari of a lifetime. Four days and three glorious nights of making memories to last a lifetime. The iconic Kruger National Park awaits you!

Itinerary

Day 1 - Johannesburg - Kruger Park. From Nelspruit we drive towards camp for check in and a Lunch break before departing on the first game drive departing from the Lodge at 15h30pm. We return to camp late afternoon allowing time for you to relax before dinner is served in the restaurant.

Day 2 - Kruger Park. Everything starts early in the Kruger park in order to have a greater chance of seeing game, we depart camp when the gates open. Early morning is the best time to view our Elusive leopard and lions still on the prowl as well as the Hyena scavenging for food before the heat of the day. You’ll see, tall elegant Giraffes, their heads among the branches of the acacia trees, and a family of Elephants crossing the road ahead of you. You’ll see plenty of birds too – there are more than 500 species present in the Park. Return to camp late afternoon before gate closing.

Day 3 - Kruger Park. Today is a new dawning in Kruger with brilliant sunrises, the singing of Cicada beetles and birds as they get ready for another day. Your guide is on the lookout for the elusive leopard still on the prowl as well as prides of Lions on their morning walk to the watering hole for a cool drink before taking a Siesta during the heat of the day. After breakfast continue on your game drive before making your way back to camp for a mid-day break, departing once again by 15h30pm on another afternoon drive returning to your camp as the sun sets. Dinner is once again served in the Restaurant.

Day 4 - Kruger Park - Johannesburg. This morning after another spectacular sunrise we once again go out to spot the last of our Big 5 and smaller Antelope, Cats and Birds, enjoying breakfast and then getting ready to depart from the Kruger by 10h00am and making our way back to Johannesburg.

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!
