Why choose Kruger National Park for a safari?

Even though you can go on a safari in many destinations in Africa, the Kruger still ranks number one for “must visit” destinations and specifically wildlife destinations in Africa and even in the world.  The Kruger National Park literally has something for everyone; from breathtaking sunrises & sunsets to superb birding safaris, to ample wildlife and tree species. You will most certainly find something that you will treasure as a memory for years to come.

Did you know?

You can find 505 bird, 404 tree & shrub, 147 mammals, 118 reptiles, 53 fish and 35 amphibian species in the Kruger National Park

The Kruger National Park is most famous for being the home of the iconic Big Five animals; lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and buffalo.

Besides the superb wildlife, it is one of the few places where you can enjoy a Kruger safari in the comfort of an open safari vehicle, whilst being guided by a professional Field Guide. This allows you to interpret what you see so much better and gain valuable knowledge along the way, it is totally worth it! Everyone should go on a Kruger safari at least once in their life!

At Lion Roar Safaris, our guests are our number one priority and creating a Kruger safari experience is something that we are truly fanatical about! We believe that our guests deserve the best value for money but also deserve luxury at affordable rates. This is why we look after our open safari vehicles so well! We believe the experience should not only be about the animals, the guide, the Kruger and the landscape but also about the comfort of the guests on the safari vehicle. We like to offer special touches, for example, the use of high-quality, waterproof ponchos for the rainy days as well as an on-board coffee shop where you can buy a quick cuppa to start your day right. Then there are the yummy snack boxes that you can munch on during the course of the day. We like to spoil our guests, why wouldn’t we?

We only make use of passionate, friendly and professional Field Guides to conduct the Kruger safari. All our Field Guides undergo strenuous training to be able to guide in the Kruger and they are more than happy to share their knowledge with you.

Another reason why you should make use of our services is that we provide, fast, easy, safe and secure online booking, without the hassle of having to share personal card information with us.

We are proud to mention that our open safari vehicles are some of the best in the Kruger National Park. Here is why?

Each safari vehicle is specifically designed for wildlife viewing. You get a comfortable seat trimmed in ripstop canvas, each equipped with a safety belt as safety is one of our top priorities.

On the back of the open vehicle, you can enjoy the height-advantage the seats provide, allowing for a great view of Kruger and all its wonders.

The vehicle has space for 9 people to sit comfortably on the back of the open vehicle, each in their own seat.  Each row can seat 3 people. All 9 people have great viewing opportunities as the vehicle is open all around, besides for the roof that provides well-needed shade.

Fantastic experience

We really enjoyed our safari with Liz and the web photographer. They pointed out many sightings which we would never have seen on our own. We saw 3 leopards, many elephants, rhinos, cape buffaloes, giraffes, zebras, hippos and different types of antelopes and birds.
They provided binoculars which helped a lot, especially when observing the leopards in the reed!
The service is top: on time, friendly, very informative and you get a feeling how much they enjoy “going the extra mile” for the customer. They tried to keep ahead of the crowd and do not enter thru Numbi gate which is usually very crowded. Its great the park fee is included in the price because then you do not need to queue at the entrance like in the case of some of the other operators. We will definitely recommend you!

Great services! Amazing commments

The guide was very friendly and helpful!
She really knew the way around the park and we were able to see a big variety of animals

Super accommodating and informative.
Liz was super patient in making sure we get the morning bush walk and night drive within limited dates. They know lots about every animal we saw. I love that they provide parkas for their guests because it gets super chilly as the truck moves. Their truck is clean and not loud like other trucks which tend to scare the animals away.

Spectacular day in the Mighty Kruger!

Even if the weather was cold during the day, the spectacular sightings we had made up for it all. Luckily this company is not one of those that rush from one big sighting to another but rather take it at a slower pace and therefore not miss even the small things like some bird species and trees and plants, lizards and much more.
Oh and I am so glad their Photographer was also on board with her very sharp eye sight. She spotted plenty of animals where the rest of us missed them…especially that Cheetah! And she took the most beautiful pictures (and some short videos clips) of all our sightings that day. We were surely one lucky group of people seeing all those magnificent wildlife, especially the Elephant Calves, Wild Dogs as well as Hyena Pups!
Oh and let’s not forget the snack bags that was packed for us!!
The Guide was very informative and interactive with our group. Evidently her kindness and helpfulness is not only restricted to the time a guest is on her vehicle still busy on the Tour but even helping when one of our group members was staying over at a place in the Kruger Park, she assisted him from booking in at the camp to taking him to where he would be staying, to briefly showing him around on what is where and available to him in the camp. And this all took merely a few minutes.
I would definitely be recommending Lion Roar Safaris.

Best experience ever!

Lizelle was very informative and made sure we had the best views of all the animals!

Johan , Google Review

Lizelle was the most amazing tour guide. She knew everything about the animals and gave us plenty of time to take photos and ask questions while still ensuring that we saw 4 of the big 5. She was just as excited as we were to view the animals. Without using a radio she was knowledgeable enough to know where to look and how to spot the animals even in the summer bush. Liz was there to help point out animals as well. We were pleasantly surprised to have two guides to make this experience incredible. The vehicle was as impeccable as the guides. They even provided snacks that can easily substitute lunch. The cherry on top is the fleece lined ponchos that kept us warm as it was a bit chilly and a little rainy.

Amazing safari and the best guide!

We did a lot of research and chose Lion’s Roar based on it and were spot on with our choice! To my own shame, I cannot remember the name of our guide because it’s been a few months since he experience, but she truly rocked – she was knowledgable, funny and easygoing.

We got very-very lucky on the day we went and saw elephants, rhinos, wild dogs, hippos, numerous birds and other animals. We went again just with friends and saw hardly anything, so do yourself a favor and book with these guys!

LydiaBay, TripAdvisor Review
We loved it!

Liz was so great! Without a doubt, she made our trip a lot better than it would have been otherwise. She was knowledgeable and really wanted us to have a good time.

Best safari company in the Kruger!

I want to congratulate Lion Roar Safaris once again for taking me on safari to the Kruger.

I had a spur of the moment urge to go on a safari. Even though it was a last minute booking, they were stil happy to accommodate me.

It’s always nice to just sit back and relax while everything is taken care of. For me, it is always a special occasion going to the Park. It’s the perfect opportunity to relax and recharge my batteries. Best of all, I learn something new everytime I go with Lion Roar Safaris.

Every safari with this company is unique. Everyone should do a guided safari with them atleast once in their lives otherwise you are missing out!

Keep up the good work Lion Roar and see you again soon for another safari adventure!

Memorable Father’s Day in the Kruger National Park

Usually I end up in the beautiful Nelspruit to see clients and to deal with work-related responsibilities. This year, my husband and I returned for a well-deserved holiday break. Yes, we came back and it is our second time doing a safari with Lion Roar Safaris, but this time I brought along the kids, my father and mother. One big happy family outing!

We booked the safari on Father’s Day, so my dad can enjoy the Kruger yet again. He hasn’t been to the Kruger for many years, let alone go on safari in an open safari vehicle. Everyone enjoyed it immensely, especially the kids who simply adore all animals.

My dad walks with a walking stick and my mother struggles to see & both of them make use of hearing aids. For this reason, we decided to book the safari vehicle privately so we don’t have to share with other people and if the kids misbehave or granny or grandpa can’t hear, we can talk a bit louder. (Even though we know that their company is child and elderly friendly). I’m glad my husband advised me to book it privately, it made it more special.

I just want to thank the team at Lion Roar Safaris once again. Everything from start to finish was great! I would also like to thank you for the extra touches you provide to make things comfortable, for example, the extra step that helped mom and dad get on the vehicle, the ponchos and most importantly the patience and professionalism of the guide.

We will keep coming back!
