There Wasn’t Even The Slightest Hiccup From Jim & Toni, USA, travelled with us during April 2018.
Hi Gavin, We want to thank you for all of the arrangements you made for us. All of the details were spot on and there wasn’t even the slightest hiccup during our stay. All of our transfers with Gap were perfect. We had Vusi as our driver for all three transfers and he was great. We enjoyed both Rhino Post and Elephant Plains very much. We enjoyed the game drives at both equally. We now appreciate the difference between going off-road at the private reserves and staying on the roads at Kruger. The games viewing at both was spectacular.
We are now considering a future safari - probably in Botswana (and Victoria Falls). The earliest would be in 2020, but nothing is firm at this point. We will contact Wild Wings Safaris when we’re ready to commit.
Here are a couple of pictures from our trip. I bought a new lens prior to the trip and Toni gave me a little grief about spending the money, but all was forgiven when she saw the photos...
Couldn’t Have Asked For More From Kristin & Caitlin, USA, travelled with us during May 2018.
Hi Corlie, We had an amazing trip! The safari lodge was perfect - staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, accommodations were spacious, clean and comfortable, and the game viewing was amazing! We really couldn't have asked for more.
We had no issues in terms of transfers - it all was very smooth, always had someone waiting for us with a sign. And thank you so much for letting us know about our initial Cape Town to Hoedspruit flight being cancelled - we really appreciate the heads up, which allowed us to re-book on CemAir in enough time to not miss out on any game drives.
Thank you for all your work setting up the trip, and for the excellent recommendation of Kambaku Safari Lodge. We would not hesitate to recommend Wild Wings or Kambaku in the future.
Better Than We Ever Could Have Imagined From Emily, UK, travelled with us during May 2018.
A safari has always been one of the things my fiance and I have been desperate to do but we were a bit unsure about self-driving Kruger on our first time. I found Wild Wings on trip advisor and after reading the great reviews decided to enquire to see what they offered. We had an immediate reply from Madi who put us together a great itinerary for 3 nights in Kruger and 3 nights at a Private Lodge with a tour of the Panorama Route on the way back.
All I can say is that the trip was better than we could ever have imagined. We were picked up from Kruger Airport by Nicky for our Kruger Safari and as soon as we got through the gate we were spotting wildlife! Nicky was absolutely fabulous and we could not have imagined having a better guide for our trip - she got us great viewing spots, amazing sightings, answered all our questions and cooked us amazing breakfasts and dinners every day! My fiance is a keen birder and when Nicky found this out she went out of her way to help him identify all the birds we were seeing and get some great bird sightings too. We were really sad when Nicky dropped us at the main gate as we'd had such an amazing 4 days we didn't want to leave. We really couldn't have asked for more from Nicky, she made this one of the best things we had both ever done.
Our transfers to the Gomo Gomo Lodge was comfortable and prompt and the lodge and staff were great but we discovered that the experience within Kruger and staying at the bushcamps was more our cup of tea and so it could never beat the amazing first 4 days of our Safari.
The company that Wild Wings used for our 2-day tour of the Panorama Route was also excellent. We weren't sure what to expect as I'd just asked Madi to suggest something to add onto the end of our trip as we had 2 days spare before flying home but again this tour exceeded our expectations and we had a great time with Gavin see all the sights.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Wild Wings to my friends and family and would happily use them again in the future. We're already dreaming about our next trip...!
6 Stars Experience From Roberto, Brazil, travelled with us during May 2018.
Hi Madi, From when we first contacted you and the team at the office we could already tell that you were very professional people putting together a special trip for us. Thanks for the detailed information, answering all questions promptly and making every effort made to accommodate our needs. For that we would have given you 5 stars already, but what followed after we met our guide, Simon, made us want to give you guys a 6th star.
Simon clearly loves what he does. He's been guiding Safaris for 10+ years and still enjoys it as much as we did our very first time. He does this with passion and respect for the animals, you can tell this is much more than just a job for him. Looking so hard for the animals, reading their body language, looking for a better angle, a better light, taking his own photos, detailing what we were seeing in his own words instead of giving some memorized textbook description. He was having a great time and he was sharing that special experience with us, which made us feel so lucky.
After each day of excitement, delicious food was prepared by Jacques, our own personal chef for the trip, who would not only cook but beautifully set and light the tables, describe our meals and make us feel relaxed under a roof of stars.
Thank you Madi, thank you Jacques and specially thank you Simon.
We will find new opportunities to enjoy wildlife in Africa and FOR SURE we'll count on Wild Wings again next time.
We Had A Fantastic Time From Anne-Marie, Canada, travelled with us during May 2018.
Hi Cathari, I just wanted to say thank you so much for organizing our safari. We had a fantastic time, and everything went off without a hitch. It was truly impressive how all the pickups/transfers etc. were done so efficiently. All the hotels were lovely. Simon was a fantastic guide.
Thanks again for helping us explore your delightful country.
A Fantastic Experience From Eddie & Sue, UK, travelled with us during May 2018.
Hi Clare, Just at airport for flight back to UK - wanted to let you know that Sue and I had a fantastic experience. Simon was great as I'm sure you know - hoping to come back probably Oct/Nov 2019 for the same safari but obviously a different season.
Thanks for all your efforts.
We would definitely book again. From Michele, USA, travelled with us during April 2018.
Hi Mike, Absolutely perfect! The best trip we've experienced. Simon, our guide, was a gem possessing an outstanding blend of knowledge and personality. The accommodations were comfortable with nice rooms. Chef John provided impressive culinary experiences and was extremely talented in preparing traditional South African dishes accompanied with historical background of the meals. Overall, great culinary experience.
Thank you, Simon. You're the greatest! All together it was a remarkably unforgettable experience - very friendly staff and excellent game drives. We would definitely book again. A perfect stay and safari experience!
Back after a fantastic safari From Willem, Netherlands, travelled with us during May 2018.
Dear Madi, Thanks indeed, and for all the last-minute organising. We just came back after a fantastic safari. Saw lots of animals, including lions and leopards (both with cubs) today and had an excellent time with Andy, who was both very knowledgeable as well as pleasant company.
We all look back on a great trip.
Our trip of a lifetime! From Mandy, USA, travelled with us during April 2018.
Hi, Madi, Just a quick note to thank you for arranging this wonderful tour for us. Everything went just as planned and all the accommodations and activities were top notch.
We are back safe and sound in the USA now and can’t believe that just days ago we were watching elephants and lions in Kruger. Nicky was great as our guide, as well as being a skilled driver and excellent cook. We learned a lot and her enthusiasm was contagious.
Thanks again for all your help and advice in making this African Safari our trip of a lifetime!
It Was A Five-Star Experience! From Clara, USA, travelled with us during April 2018.
The trip was a blast! Your suggestion of spending two days in Kruger Park and two days in a private reserve was perfect. We could see the vast landscape and the diverse animals in the Kruger Park, and got very close and personal with the animals at the private reserve. The bush walk at the private reserve was really enjoyable.
Nicky's very knowledgeable, professional and enthusiastic in sharing her knowledge and love of the park. It's amazing how sharp her eyes were spotting animals. She knows very well not just on the large animals, but also the birds and plants. I learned a lot from her. John the chef cooked very delicious meals for us, and I really enjoyed his stories about the food and the customs.
George and Solly at the private game reserve were also very knowledgeable about the animals. It's amazing to see how Solly the tracker could track the animals based on their footprints, and his sharp eyes at night. They really understand the animal behaviors and could get to the animals within feet, yet we felt completely safe.
The transportation between Victoria Falls, Cape Town and Kruger Park was very punctual and the drivers were very friendly. Last but not least, Clare, you've been so helpful and responsive in planning our trip and answering all of our questions. Overall, it was a five-star experience! Thanks for all your help.
