It was absolutely brilliant. My husband and I spent the day in the Kruger and it was exactly what we wanted. We wouldnt have asked for a more memorable day. Amazing sightings, food, and entertainment. Adrian loves what he does and we could see that. Highly recommended!

When I planned this trip, communication from Vumbua tours and Safari's was exceptional. Response to my questions and enquiries about my tailor made safari, was outstanding. They phoned me and confirmed the emails with specific details and the itinerary was received, and that I am satisfied. Service once the tour commenced, was also spot on. All my dietary needs where met, and all kinds of little things, like assistance getting on and off the different vechile etc was taken care off. Comfort was key for me, as I have a knee problem. All my expectations where met and exceeded. The safari was such an unique experience, we saw some rare game like Sable, Eland and Roan. The big 5 and a hippo fight. To me, this was really awesome. I would say that this was by far the most satisfying trip on a safari I have ever been on. Pricing point was great value for my money. I will recommend Vumbua Tours and Safari's to any one, every day. The guide was a treat, and very well trained with a great sense of humor.
