What our guests say :



" A SAFARI TO REMEMBER - We spent a day with Andrew who had come highly recommended and we now know why. His knowledge and his passion for both Kruger National Park and the animals is incredible. Never has the expression “charming the birds from the trees” been so apt. At one point he imitated a bird which actually then came to us, amazing. We had been on a number of safaris in the past but never seen a leopard, this all changed. In the space of two hours we had seen five, I think even Andrew was taken aback by what we witnessed. We had the most fantastic time with Andrew and we will certainly use his services again when we next visit. We can not recommend him highly enough./i>"

Dale Family - England

" SAFARIA, THE BEST & MORE - Andrew (Owner of Safaria) and his team are the best safari guides you could hope to come across in terms of both animal knowledge and service, but the service isn’t limited to your safari. All you need is a hotel plus an airline ticket and Safaria can do the rest for you during your trip to Kruger. Andrew personally picked up my wife and I from Nelspruit Airport, took us to our hotel, and ensured everything we needed during our stay just outside Kruger was taken care of. My wife and I did 2 full days of private safari and the routes were customized for what we wanted to see- these guys know where to go to spot certain animals and have a trained eye for spotting and recognizing animals- even birds. There are 400+ species of birds in Kruger and Andrew can do bird calls and name on the spot any bird you’re looking at. Our 2nd day’s route was planned to spot our remaining favorite animals and we ended up spotting far more animals than we had hoped to see. Andrew arrives early, has blankets available for early morning starts, makes you coffee, tea, hot chocolate, etc. He knows the surrounding towns well and has relationships with several hotels plus knows the hotel staff. Andrew and his team also know the Kruger roads and stops extremely well. I’m convinced most people driving around in private vehicles would get lost several times during the day and not know about the less traveled paths. Our next stop in South Africa was in Cape Town and Andrew wrote us a whole list of wineries we ended up visiting. He’s a genuinely awesome guy and we were lucky to have him as our safari guide. Book your safari and airport pickup + drop-off with Safaria and know your trip to Kruger will be a great one!./i>"

" EXCEPTIONAL YOU WILL NOT FIND BETTER - I have taken safaris in numerous countries around Africa, and Safaria was without a doubt the best experience I've had in a national park. Andrew and his team went to every length to ensure that our time with them was exceptional./i>"

Jonathan A - New Zealand

" AMAZING EXPERIENCE AND HIGHLIGHT OF OUR TRIP - Doing a full day private Safari was the absolutely highlight of our 2 week trip to SA. Andrew is an amazing guide, and has an unmatched knowledge of the park. He knew everything from bird calls to park history, to clearly everything about the wildlife. The day started our raining and he made sure we had blankets and ponchos, and were completely covered and comfortable. By 9am it was sunny and he could remove the covers and the vehicle was a blast to tour in! I wouldn't recommend any other guide in Kruger, and can't wait to do another Safari with Andrew soon!./i>"

Dan Schoenfeld - Fort Launderdale, Florida

" THE REAL KRUGER PARK EXPERIENCE - As a South African who has been blessed to not only travel the world playing and commentating on international cricket and also to spend many days in wonderful places within our country, I can honestly say that I look forward to nothing more every single time than spending time with Andrew Wagner in the Kruger Park. His knowledge of the Park and all its offerings cannot be surpassed. He is the best in the business of taking people out into the Kruger Park. Having invited friends and family to join us on occasions, they constantly remind me of their amazing experiences with Safaria. Nothing is too much trouble. I cannot recommend Andrew enough and will vouch for his service at every opportunity../i>"

Pat Symcox - South African Cricket Legend

" 5 DAY PRIVATELY GUIDED EXPERIENCE - We took a week long privately guided tour back in March .... suffice it to say it has taken me this long to gather enough absolutely AMAZING things to say about Andy and what safaria has to offer. Here are just a few ..... If your desire is to EXPERIENCE the beauty and all Kruger National Park has to offer. Book NOW. Safaria offers a truly PERSONALISED, PRIVATE and unique experience. Your desire to trek, and learn and experience all of what Kruger has to offer is at your disposal. (Andy graciously hosted myself and my partner FOR A WEEK!!!! Can you imagine hosting ANYONE for a week?!!!) Andy is a wealth of knowledge and experience beyond what you could ever expect to learn from any book or tv program. His passion for the park and environment resonates with so deeply that you are constantly captivated and engrossed in ethereal experience. I won’t get anyone’s expectations up ..... but we saw the big 5.......... many times over ......... in many different aspects .........and in absolutely breathtaking magnitude ( absolutely no words to describe seeing the beauty and amazement of nature up close and personal) .... Andy knows this park as if it’s his own ......he knows where these amazing creatures eat sleep nap breath and any and everything else!!! I’m breathtaking reliving and trying to put into words how amazing my experience was ..... just book it .... thank me later for advising, sure...... but be grateful this brainchild of Andy brings you the adventure of a lifetime!!./i>"

" HIGHLIGHT OF OUR TRIP, 2ND TIME IN A ROW - This was my second trip with Safaria, both as a guide for Naturalist Journeys with ten clients. For each of them, the 4-day/3-night Kruger safari was the highlight of the two week South Africa tour. Reasons in order of priority: 1) Andrew has a well-developed knowledge of the park and its biomes and wildlife: He is able to talk at all levels (kids up to advanced levels...) while describing what you are seeing. My tour group included educational levels from high school graduates to PhD's, and there wasn't a question that Andrew or his other guide (Jacques...) couldn't answer. 2) Both were superb at spotting wildlife and situating the vehicles for viewing and/or photography. 3) Both Andrew and Jacques are very personable! 4) Their vehicles are new and spotless. Having led over a 130 tours all over the world, I really do believe Safaria is one of the best operators I have had a chance to work with../i>"

Gregory Smith - Veteran Tour Leader for Naturalist Journeys USA

" UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE FOR A SCIENTIST - Definitely, Safaria was the right service to satisfy all my scientific curiosities about African savannah. Andrew has a deep understanding on ecological processes and species diversity that sustain Kruger National Park. I was happily impressed how prepared Andrew was all the time (books, apps, maps, scientific literature) to respond all my scientific questions and about his knowledge to identify plants, bird, mammals and other vertebrates across the Park. Andrew is not just a safari guide; he is a passionate person who is able to convey his passion and respect for nature to me. He works on time, with fully equipped, clean vehicles, and offers a wonderful coffee each morning. Over the three days, I received an outstanding service from Safaria and as a result of it, I was able to contemplate nature, learn about Kruger biodiversity, and become immersed in this unforgettable experience. I have no doubt that Andrew can also offer scientific tourism, by supporting a niche of researchers as travellers. I hope to see more “Andrews” in 10 years guiding guests (and scientists) in Africa and in other unique places that left in this planet. If you need an exceptional guide for Kruger Park, book Safaria../i>"

Why choose a private Guided Kruger Park Day Tour ?

There is no better way to experience the Kruger National Park than on a Full Day tour in a Open Safari Vehicle with an expert guide. Professional guided Kruger Park Day Tours, like to ones Safaria offer, are by far the best way to experience the Kruger National Park. With an expert guide you are guaranteed to see more and experience more. Having your own private guide is like having a resource of knowledge and information on the savanna, knowing which areas are best to explore based on the seasons, and an opportunity to learn about the history and heritage of the Park. Along with having a Private Guide you travel through the savanna in an Open Safari Vehicle which better connects you to the wilderness and gives you un-interrupted views and a higher vantage point

Where do we get collected for our Kruger Park Day Tour ?1

Meeting with your guide on the day of your Kruger Park Day Tour is all-dependent on how far your accommodation is for the nearest Kruger Park gate. If you are staying within 15km from a Kruger Park entrance gate, then we can collect you from your accommodation and make the short journey to the gate on the Open Safari vehicle. If your accommodation is further than15km, then we would collect you for the nearest Kruger Park Gate at the agreed time. On request a transfer can be provided and will collect you from your accommodation and take you to the nearest Kruger Park gate and then return you after your Kruger Park tour.

We do advise guests that for both safety and comfort, a transfer is advised for longer distance travel from accommodation to the entrance gates.

Collection time is based on the time of year and season. These collection times are aligned to opening and closing times of Kruger National Park gates. During the summer month’s collection is earlier and later in winter months. Kruger Park Day tour collection and drop off times as follows:

October to March collection :             05h30am
April to September collection : 06h15am
On arrival at the agreed Kruger Park Gate for collection, guests are provided with safe and secure parking to leave their vehicle. Your guide will be already waiting at the gate and visible with a branded Safaria Open Safari Vehicle. Should you have included the Kruger Park entrance fee into your payment to Safaria, we would have already finalized your entrance into the park. Guest only have to then sign the indemnity which is handed in by their guide and your Kruger Park Day Tour will begin. You guide will start with a pre-drive safety briefing and then you will depart and journey into the savanna.

What happens on a Kruger Park Day Tour ?

Once your guide has completed the pre-drive safety briefing you will begin to explore the wilderness. A typical full day Kruger Park Day Tour itinerary is structured as follows:

06h00am – Depart from the entrance gate making your way into the park

09h00am – Breakfast stop and comfort break at one of the main camps

09h45am – Back on safari vehicle exploring the savanna in search of wildlife

Comfortable shoes
Small back pack for personal items

What should you wear on a Kruger Park Day Tour ?

From experience here are our suggestions on the right kind of attire for your Kruger Park Day Tour. These recommendations are based on the specific time of year and are suggested to ensure that you are both comfortable and adequately dressed from your adventure.

Months : September to April

Cool functional attire preferably in dull neutral shades to create uniformity with vehicle and not stand out visually to game species. Always remember a good hat as well as sunscreen. Midday temperatures in Summer can reach upward of 40 degrees and afternoons can experience thunder showers. All vehicles are equipped with blankets and waterproof ponchos for our guests.

Summer attire:

Zip of cargo pants
Good Hat
Technical long sleeve shirt with SPF 30+ or a T-shirt is also find
Zip up rain jacket to keep you dry not for warmth
Comfortable shoes
Winter Months : May to August

During the winter months we typically experience blue skies with a daily average temperature of 20 - 25 degrees celcius. Early morning and late afternoons are cooler and we recommend warmer attire as this is amplified when travelling on an open safari vehicle. We do provide blankets on the vehicles but also recommend dressing warm with items that can be layered and removed around midday.  

Winter attire:

Jeans or Cargo pants
Good Hat
T-Shirt or long sleeve shirt
Warm Jacket or Hoodie
Beanie
Comfortable shoes
