What safari company should I use to book my Kruger Trip

Welcome to Lion Roar Safaris (Pty) Ltd – AWARD WINNING TOUR OPERATOR AND KRUGER NATIONAL PARK SAFARI SPECIALIST

Today we are going to share some tips on the topic; What safari company I should use to book my Kruger Trip.

I am sure most people are familiar with the Quality Triangle? Perhaps this is new to you. But don’t worry, we will explain how it works. Have a look at the picture below.

What safari company should I use to book my Kruger Trip, Which safari company should I use to book my Kruger Trip, how to make my Kruger booking, What safari company should I use to book my Kruger National Park Trip, safari company Kruger, Safari company KNP, Safari company in Kruger Park, How to book a safari

Within the Quality Triangle, you will see the following & you can only choose two:

  • So, if you choose Fast & Good, then it won’t be cheap – meaning it will be expensive because one pays for service
  • If you choose Good & Cheap, it won’t be fast and you will most probably end up waiting for the completion of the service for a long time.
  • Choosing Fast & Cheap is great but it won’t be any good – buying cheap normally ends up having to pay more because the job is not done well.
  • Whichever way you look at the triangle, you can only end up with two.

You will also need to keep this method in mind when making the decision of which safari company you will choose to do your Kruger safari for you.

So, the question is still: What safari company should I use to book my Kruger Trip?

Below we are going to compare our company with some other safari companies;

  1. Duration of the safari:

Other Safari company:  Some safari companies only provide a safari that lasts a few hours and still charge for a full day safari.

Lion Roar Safaris: We pick-up our guests early in the morning between 04:00 – 06:00 depending on the season. Early mornings are the best time to find animals. We like to be at the gate when it opens.

  1. Pick-up location:

Other Safari company:  Only collect the guests at the entrance gate of the Kruger National Park.

Lion Roar Safaris: We collect our guests directly from their guest house/lodge/Airbnb/Hotel (depending on location) in and around Nelspruit and surrounding areas, White River | Malelane | Hazyview | Komatipoort | Marloth Park | Kruger National Park | KMI Airport | Skukuza Airport.

  1. Transfer costs:

Other Safari Company: Extra charges for transfers to and from the Kruger National Park.

Lion Roar Safaris: All our transfers to and from Kruger are included if it falls within our area of operation.

  1. Child, special needs, LGBTI or geriatric friendly?

Other Safari Company: Some safari companies are not child, special needs, LGBTI or geriatric friendly.

Lion Roar Safaris: At Lion Roar Safaris, we do not discriminate; everyone who would like to experience a Kruger safari is welcome.

  1. Snacks or beverages included in the rate?

Other Safari Company: Some operators only provide a bottle of water per guest on the day of safari.

Lion Roar Safaris: Our rates include a snack box per person. The snack box includes a variety of items. (Snack box not included in private safari vehicle hire)

  1. Ponchos on-board the vehicle?

Other Safari Company:  Some safari companies don’t provide blankets or ponchos.

Lion Roar Safaris: High-quality, waterproof ponchos available on-board the vehicle when needed.

  1. Vehicles well maintained and looked after?

Other Safari Company:  Some safari companies do not re-invest in their safari vehicles and then it becomes old and unmaintained.

Lion Roar Safaris: Our open safari vehicles are of a high standard, they are well maintained and serviced regularly.

  1. Do the guides get adequate rest?

Other Safari Company:  Some companies work their Field Guides for weeks on end. And for that reason, you get a tired, unenthusiastic, unenergetic and sometimes short-tempered Field Guide.

Lion Roar Safaris: We make sure our Field Guides are well rested and get enough time off. Ensuring a fresh, energetic and passionate Field Guide.

Additional Tips

  • You get what you pay for: There are many safari companies out there, make sure you get the right one for you. The last thing you want to do is end up with a safari company that gave you an unprofessional and disappointing experience all because you wanted to save a buck. Remember; not all safari companies are equal.
  • Tripadvisor reviews: Additionally, you can read Tripadvisor reviews of safari companies in the area you want to visit for example, Kruger National Park. See what the people say about the service and standard of professionalism. Don’t just choose the first company with the most reviews that pops up on Tripadvisor. Read first – about the experience, the service, the extra touches and other topics that people mention in their reviews.  Lastly, read the responses to the reviews; this will tell you a lot about the way the company does business.
  • Social Media: You can also visit their social media platforms, for example, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, etc. This will also give you a good feel of the company.
  • Website: Visit their website, so you can read more about the company as well as their services and of course their rates.
  • Contact them directly: If you need additional information or want to make a booking, contact them via phone or email. The way they handle business over the phone or via email will also indicate whether or not they are the right company for you.

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!

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!

Wonderful safari experience in the Kruger National Park!

What an experience. The finer touch and extra service makes it very special. Neat vehicle and well organised logistics. Knowlegable, friendly and professional two ladies. Highly recommended. This safari in the National Kruger Park was definitely a highlight of my year. Well done !

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!
