10/10 From Serena,Australia, travelled with us during January 2019.
Dear Madi, It was all fantastic - 10/10 for all aspects. Thank you.
It was a really enjoyable trip. From Jeggrey, Singapore, travelled with us during January 2019.
Dear Madi, It was a really enjoyable trip for us. Thank you so much!
Everything went smoothly – from the transfer, safari accommodation, game drives, car rental and Cape Town stay.
We really appreciate the information sheets given by Wild Wings to help us in understanding the places we went.
It’s been a blast! From Mandy & Martin, UK, travelled with us during January 2019.
A huge, huge thank you to you and your team for the great holiday you put together for us. Using a local South African company who has the knowledge and experience certainly paid off. We loved our accommodation at every destination, it was a nice surprise every time we went to a new place. All the team in every part of the holiday were superb n everything went to plan.
Dad has loved his first holiday to Africa n has fell in love with Cape Town that he wants to come back.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you again, it's been a blast :)
We loved every minute! From Gerhard, Germany, travelled with us during January 2019.
We were very satisfied with our 5 day / 4 night guided “Duncan’s Camp” mobile safari with Karibu, organised through Madi. We loved it!
“Mobile” refers to the fact that you move from place to place with a 4x4 game viewing vehicle, with a ranger/driver/guide that does the driving and animal, bird & plant spotting and explaining.
A small crew, responsible for sorting out your accommodation and food is also part of the deal. That means you have to do absolutely nothing except sitting in an open vehicle (usually no more than 6 people per vehicle), spotting animals and birds (ticking them off your wishlist if you want) and sitting down for sundowners and meals.
Another advantage is seeing a huge amount of animals (including the elusive wild cats, lions, leopards & cheetahs!!) & birds (we saw 63 different kinds) and learning about them from a real expert. Starting points could be Maun, Gaborone, Kasane, etc. Within the concept of a guided mobile safari there are 3 further options, according to your budget:
1. Fixed tented camps: (this was us) our accommodation was in tents that are set up permanently, e.g. Duncan’s Camp (on a beautiful lake), Third Bridge Camp (in the heart of Moremi). Each tent has comfortable beds & linen and a private, open bathroom with shower, normal toilet & basin.
2. Mobile tented camps: here the crew brings everything with them and leave nothing behind. The locations are often next to a river for ultimate game viewing. Showers and toilettes are also transported and set up by the crew.
3. Lodges: the luxury option, where you spend 2 nights, on average, in a lodge before being transported to the next one.
Our clear suggestion for inexperienced bush visitors is that of a guided mobile safari, such as offered by Karibu. The guide/ranger we had, Balebi Kaelotswe, was a fountain of information and a very kind, gentle man and we loved every minute of the 5 days/4 nights together.
Ask for Simon - He’s a Part of Kruger From Hashem, Iran, travelled with us during January 2019.
I make it simple:
1. Ask for Simon, He’s not a human. He’s a leopard, a lion, a snake, an antelope, a buffalo, a rhino, a tree ... he’s a part of Kruger
2. He’s extremely on time
3. He got good eyes and constantly in contact with all rangers and guides to spot animals
4. He stops whenever you ask him to stop and never been grumpy
5. He knows how to manage idiots on safari and make it pleasant for everyone even idiots
6. Too much food, nice food. Don’t change too much money for lunch as they say it’s not provided. You don’t need anything more than what they provide
7. He magically stops the car on the right spot to allow everyone to take a nice shot
8. He’s knowledgeable and experienced
9. Brand new cars and you don’t experience car breaks
10. Accommodation is way better than what you get in other countries national parks
11. Whoever you are, He’s more enthusiasted [sic] than you to find animals
12. He is a great photographer
13. He is generous and gave someone his lens!!!!! to be able to take better photos to enjoy the safari more

Thank you for such an amazing safari! From Lawrence, USA, travelled with us during December 2018.
Hi Madi, Happy new year! I want to say thank you for such an amazing safari!!! Everything went extremely smoothly and definitely appreciated your candidness of us doing the private lodge first then the Skukuza lodge as it was good to preface.
Both lodges, accommodation, and game viewing were amazing! The trip went extremely smoothly which we were surprised of with all the transfers involved but what made it extremely phenomenal were the people...starting with you and how awesome you were with booking/planning our safari! Along the way, Monroe and Chris from the Elephant Lodge were the perfect guide/tracker combo and Heysly was not only an amazing guide but made you feel like you were on a tour given by an old friend (his personality, attention to detail, passion, knowledge, and the fact he cared everyone was happy made Skukuza phenomenal!).
Another absolute surprise highlight (which was totally not expected) was Louise from GAP transfers. He was professional, funny, knowledgeable, and honestly just a hands down great person! Odd but we definitely feel like we made a long time friend in Louise even though he was just our transfer from the airport to Elephant Lodge then Elephant Lodge to Skukuza.
Overall every aspect of the safari was just amazing and I can't thank you enough for all your assistance! Thank you again as words cannot express how satisfied we are with Wild Wings Safaris!
Everything was above expectation From Andrea, Italy, travelled with us during November 2018.
Hi Michael, Thank you for everything, I do not have the slightest complaint. Everything from your service to the whole Serondella experience was above expectation. I will definitely advise wild wings to any friends visiting, Thank you again.
An Awesome Experience From Lara, Brazil, travelled with us during October 2018.
My cousin and I booked a Combo Safari from October 22nd to October 25th and it all went wonderfully well. Clare, our advisor, helped us with all our doubts, always getting back to us right away. We had an awesome experience with the safaris, our guides were very helpful and knowledgeable, and we got to see many interesting animals. All went according to plan, we always had someone waiting for us on time, I could not complain about anything and I highly recommend booking with Wild Wings.
I would give 6 stars if I could! From Justin, United States, travelled with us during October 2018.
I cannot thank Corlie and WWS enough for an amazing trip for my parents and grandmother. I was nervous as I was not traveling with them and it was their first trip to South Africa.
Corlie was amazing! She listened to my every request and established the perfect trip. Airport transportation was just as scheduled with an engaging and knowledgeable driver. Upon arrival at Mohlabetsi Safari Lodge, my family could not have been more impressed. Great lodge, with a wonderfully friendly staff and great food.
All game activities were perfect, with the guide and tracker offering a detailed education on everything they encountered. The family saw more animals than they ever dreamed of, they were in awe. Thank you again WWS and especially Corlie, I would give 6 stars if I could!
It was fantastic! From Chris, UK, travelled with us during September 2018.
Hi Madi, What can I say, it was fantastic!
Having not been on safari before I was a little unsure what to expect, everything was great. All transfers working fine, accommodation was perfect
John our guide was very knowledgeable, was obviously very passionate about what he does and he also was very entertaining having great stories to tell us.
I really was not sure what to expect with the food, I certainly didn’t expect that we would have our own Chef! John’s cooking (another John) was really good and again he kept us entertained with great stories and certainly kept us well fed after a day out in the bush.
The group of people on the Kruger tour all got on great, it was like you had matched us up?
Chobe was very different, maybe a little more luxurious, I was put in the honeymoon suite, nice chilled out boat safaris, very friendly staff in Botswana.
My compliments to yourself and the wild wing’s team for a great holiday, please ensure the 2 John’s get good feedback. If I did it again, I certainly would not change anything in Kruger or Chobe.Thanks again.
