  • Excellent professional guide with a lot of Safari/Animal knowledge; Awesome experience; High recommended for couples, group or individual. Andrew take the necessary time to really enjoy the tour. I’ll definitely repeat with him.
  • We had three days private Safari with Andrew and one of his colleagues. I cannot recommend him highly enough, his knowledge is second to none, his attention to detail and ensuring we saw everything we wanted to see was amazing. His passion for Kruger shines through, he really is an extraordinary guide and a totally charming person to spend the day with. I guarantee you will not find a better Kruger guide.
  • My husband and I spend an amazing day with Andrew birding Kruger National Park. It was our first trip to South Africa, so there were a lot of new things to see. We ended up with more than 100 bird species, with bonus experiences with other mammals and wildlife. One non-bird highlight was seeing a group of 11 Rhino!! Andrew's knowledge of birds and all things Kruger National Park made our experience amazing and we can't wait to get back and go bird with him again!
  • We had a beautiful, relaxing, and exciting day on our private guided full day trip with Andrew as our guide. He was so knowledgeable about the history, the land, the animals, and even the plants. He could explain every question my husband had about everything. He made the trip most enjoyable. We came upon many animals near the road. The elephants got very close. They were majestic. As a guide, Andrew was getting updates as to where animals had been spotted. He always paid attention to our safety and the animals comfort as he positioned our jeep in the right place to see the animals and get great pictures. We took this tour from Malelane Gate. We plan to return with Andrew as our guide at other gate locations so to see all of this amazing park. Thank you so much Andrew!!!
  • Andrew took great care of us - his knowledge is outstanding, he was very informative and made the trip incredibly interesting! The wildlife and birdlife is fantastic and we would highly recommend anyone considering a guided to tour to use him
  • We had a wonderful trip, our guide juri was very knowledgeable about the Kruger and its inhabitants. I would advise anyone going to Kruger to take this trip, we couldn’t have had a better experience or guide. Thank you Juri
  • We did a full day private guided safari with Andrew. We had a wonderful time and saw so many animals. I couldn't believe the amount of elephants we saw. They were amazing. Andrew was knowledgable and really made our day a fun time. We all highly suggest taking a tour with Safaria. The "Swedish Canadians"
  • Thank you very much Andrew for having this adventure with Safaria! We loved it! We did see much more animals then expected. Kyro was a perfect guide: Lots of knowledge, lots of things to learn, super friendly and funny! I would highly recommend to everybody! You guys are doing a great job! Alex
  • Doing a full day private Safari was the absolutely highlight of our 2 week trip to SA. Andrew is an amazing guide, and has an unmatched knowledge of the park. He knew everything from bird calls to park history, to clearly everything about the wildlife. The day started our raining and he made sure we had blankets and ponchos, and were completely covered and comfortable. By 9am it was sunny and he could remove the covers and the vehicle was a blast to tour in! I wouldn't recommend any other guide in Kruger, and can't wait to do another Safari with Andrew soon!
  • We had Nelly as our driver and guide who was most informative about all the wild life. We were in complete see if his ability to spot some of the smaller animals and birds whilst driving. He was extremely patient in searching for the animals and wanted us to have a memorable experience which we did. He belonged to the team of Kurt Safaris. Nelly had a wonderful sense of humour and kept us amused through out. We were so grateful to have him again for the next half day game drive.
  • Andrew (Owner of Safaria) and his team are the best safari guides you could hope to come across in terms of both animal knowledge and service, but the service isn’t limited to your safari. All you need is a hotel plus an airline ticket and Safaria can do the rest for you during your trip to Kruger. Andrew personally picked up my wife and I from Nelspruit Airport, took us to our hotel, and ensured everything we needed during our stay just outside Kruger was taken care of. My wife and I did 2 full days of private safari and the routes were customized for what we wanted to see- these guys know where to go to spot certain animals and have a trained eye for spotting and recognizing animals- even birds. There are 400+ species of birds in Kruger and Andrew can do bird calls and name on the spot any bird you’re looking at. Our 2nd day’s route was planned to spot our remaining favorite animals and we ended up spotting far more animals than we had hoped to see. Andrew arrives early, has blankets available for early morning starts, makes you coffee, tea, hot chocolate, etc. He knows the surrounding towns well and has relationships with several hotels plus knows the hotel staff. Andrew and his team also know the Kruger roads and stops extremely well. I’m convinced most people driving around in private vehicles would get lost several times during the day and not know about the less traveled paths. Our next stop in South Africa was in Cape Town and Andrew wrote us a whole list of wineries we ended up visiting. He’s a genuinely awesome guy and we were lucky to have him as our safari guide. Book your safari and airport pickup + drop-off with Safaria and know your trip to Kruger will be a great one!
  • We booked 3 trips while in South Africa for 5 days as part of our honeymoon. We could not recommend Andrew highly enough - I've never met someone so knowledgeable and he truly loves his job!!! We had 2 safari trips as well as the Panaroma Route tour and learned so much in a short space of time. He took amazing photos of us and could not have been more accommodating! He is very friendly abd good fun!! HIGHLY recommend 👍👍
  • We had the most incredible time with Andrew and Jafra as our guides. Andrew is so professional and unbelievably knowledgable about the mammals, birds, trees, soil structure, weather and history of the Kruger. It was a pleasure to have him as our guide. Immaculate vehicle and friendly team. We will be back !!
  • We had the honor to be Andy’s guest! Seriously this guy knows what he is talking about. We found the trip through google. We booked and payed the amount in advance with a link provided to the credit card payment system. Pick up was arranged by Andy and the driver was on time. Smooth ride from Mbombela to Numbi Gate. We had amazing hours with Andy, his knowledge about the abundance of species is beyond words. An example, we went through the park and Andy stopped the vehicle because he heard something. He repeated the sound of the bird and got an answer. He pointed to a tree and there was an owl sitting in the treetop. No one would have ever seen the owl. It was amazing. Andy was constantly observing the surroundings and was looking for animals tracks and signs. We saw a lot and he explained a lot cuz we were so curious. He is clearly an exception. Thank you for sharing this great experience! Peter & Markus
  • We had such a pleasant experience in Kruger with Safaria. Andrew, our guide, was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about the nature around us. A special moment on our safari was a sighting of a Black Rhino that walked right in front of our vehicle. Andrew helped us understand how rare of a sighting this was and his excitement at seeing such an amazing creature was very evident! I've been on a safari in Kruger previously with a different company, and while that was also great, my experience with Safaria was a step above! Would highly recommend and I hope to have a chance to go again.
  • Rundum toller Tag im Krüger, hat alles super geklappt. Die Big 5 haben wir auch gesehen, auch wenn sich die Löwen äußert rar gemacht haben, durch Zufall nur 2 Löwen und 1 Leopard gesichtet. Dafür um so mehr den Rest der Tierwelt. Der guide hat uns alles super erklärt. Der Ausflug ist jederzeit zu empfehlen
  • El 8 de agosto de 2019 realizamos un tour de día completo en Kruger National Park con Andrew de Safaria, y la experiencia fue maravillosa. Era un tour de birding donde observamos casi 100 especies de aves en 1 día! Andrew es súper amable, en todo momento está pendiente de ti y de que veas el máximo número posible de animales y tiene un conocimiento extraordinario tanto sobre las aves como sobre los mamíferos y su comportamiento. Con sus explicaciones aprendimos un montón sobre los animales de Kruger y la cultura de Sudáfrica, además Andrew es muy divertido y reímos un montón. Fue un día genial que repetiremos seguro si algún día volvemos a Kruger, totalmente recomendable! Andrew thanks a lot for all de fun! Buy a donkey ;)
