Nice safari, we were a family of 8, including 2 kids, one of which is under 8 years old. So we went with a closed safari bus. Unfortunately it was 43 degrees on this day, so it was very hot. Unfortunately we only had 1 day here, otherwise it is advisable to choose a less hot day. There was no air conditioning in the safari bus. The guide was very nice and brought drinks and snacks. Saw about 100 elephants, very impressive. Also a turtle, monkey, buffaloes, pumbas, zebras. Fun facts that the guide managed to report. Good organization too. Recommended!

Into Tours really goes the extra mile and creates a day that's ideal for you to make memories with a loved one. Our tour guide Gary was extremely knowledgeable and made it so much fun to get to know more about the animals. He took us to amazing spots with great sightings! Hyena in water & an elephant family playing in mud. Gary & the entire Into Tours team were exceptional. Their communication, planning & overall service is world class. Highly recommend.

King Elvis was our driver and it was an extraordinary day. Not only we got to see plenty of animals but Elvis was really professional and knowledgeable. Would recommend this experience to anyone and if you are lucky and get King Elvis as a driver then it is the cherry on the cake.

Great experience and our guide, Lizwe, was fantastic! He was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating to answer all our questions.

We had a wonderful time. We saw lots of animals, even the lions. Our guide was great at spotting the wild animals.
