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...!
