Our drive was excellent and knowledgeable. You see all of big five and even ugly five. It was well worth the trip for both time an money. Bring binocular and long-lens camera.
Fantastic trip and our guide. was excellent. Knowledgeable and friendly. Saw 4 of the big five plus warthog, zebra, giraffe, leopard and more. Missed out on the Lion. Thoroughly recommend.
I was picked up at my hotel in Sandton and given a private drive to the park. Willie was more than happy to answer all of my questions, and I had a LOT! I had booked a tour where I joined a group in an open topped vehicle. The open vehicle was perfect, but I had so many questions that I wish I had splashed out and booked a private tour. I don't know if they would even do a tour with one person, but it would have been Ama-Zing to do a private one. Had a meal on the way back and got back to my hotel safe and sound after having seen more animals than I can name here! Thanks Willie and Ama-Zing Safaris!
This unique tour on a crater inside an extinct volcano needs to start much earlier than the 6:30 am Johannesburg hotel pick-up. Our arrival time for the Safari was 9:30 am 9/12/2017 when we passed through the entrance gate which opens at 5:30 am. The high temp that day was 37C / 99F and only a few animals were active. The watering hole landscapes were quite scenic and multiple species of animals were grazing together or just cooling off. Schedule this tour on a weekday since the Restaurant at the watering hole gets quite busy. We were very close to the animals and birds that wondered in and out during our lunch time. A visitor showed us his photos of lion, cheetah and leopard that he took early morning on a different trail than what our tour allowed. We did see white rhinos in the far distance, giraffes, water buffalo, elephants, zebras, hippos, wildebeests, warthogs, a crocodile, and impala. Very few animals seen during the hot, early afternoon safari when we were away from the watering holes.
This tour was amazing. It was just me and the guide. He took the time to go thorugh some of the more remote parts of the park. I saw a herd of elephants who came up next to the truck and crossed in front of us as well as many other animals. The guide also was able to predict which way a white rhinoceros would go and got our truck into his path. He came right up to the truck and passed in front of us. It was amazing. I also saw wildebeests, baboons, impalas, giraffes, antelope, and many other animals up close. I highly recommend this tour.
