Lo mejor de mi viaje a South Africa fue el safari, la Van nos recogió a tiempo el conductor muy amable, nos sentimos muy seguros Cuando llegamos nos presentaron el guía y listos para la aventura Recomiendo altamente el carro abierto tiene mejor vista y se puede sentir los sonidos de los animales Vi todos mi preferidos los elefantes son muy tiernos El guía nos enseñó mucho sobre cada animal regresamos en la tarde felices es una experiencia que vale su precio

I had some doubts before the tour, but as soon as I got into the open 4x4, it turned out to be amazing. I saw over 15 animals I think. The ones I remember are rhino, baboon, giraffe, tortoise, elephant, red hartebeest, steenbock, impala, black wildebeest, kudu and zebra. It wasn't just about seeing them but listening to the stories about these wild life. Everything was well-organised and I enjoyed a lot. Thanks.

Nice experience. We managed to see elephants, a buffalo and many giraffes and zebras. The tour within the park was very good, the car was in good conditions and the food pretty good as well. As suggestion for improvement is the transport from Joburg to the park: the minibus is a bit too small and uncomfortable (I am 1,87). But in general, I do not regret it.
