Kruger Wildlife Safaris was established in 1998 and we have been sharing our passion for African wildlife ever since. At Kruger Wildlife Safaris, we are a tight knit group of people who are all in this business to make safari dreams come true. Combined, our management members have almost 80 years of experience in the Safari industry, thus you can be assured that your dreams are in very capable hands.
At Kruger Wildlife Safaris, we believe that environmental tourism should never just be about business. Every decision we make is centred around adding value wherever possible. Every staff member of Kruger Wildlife Safaris got involved in the industry because of their individual passion for our natural heritage and for the people of this remarkable country that we call home. That principle comes to life through how we conduct ourselves in everything we do. Because tourism can both be a blessing and a curse to any area, we strive to cause the least amount of negative impact as possible on local communities in the areas that we operate in and the smallest possible environmental footprint both locally and globally.
We believe small things can make a big difference if enough people do enough and we therefore expect our clients on safari to share our social and environmental principles. We believe that the best time to start to make a difference is yesterday and we do that through small things like using only non-indigenous, invasive trees for firewood and using fossil fuel saving wheels on our vehicles to name but a few. We are continuously searching for new ways to reduce the environmental cost of our safaris and to support causes that assist with conservation and supporting people in need.
At Kruger Wildlife Safaris, we are passionate about African wildlife and consider it a privilege to share that passion with our guests. We believe that exceptional service, tantalising cuisine and a memorable wildlife experience is a good start. It takes special attention to every detail to ensure not just good, but great safaris. Our team is passionate about what we do for a living and our biggest reward is seeing happy guests and knowing that through our efforts, we have made a contribution towards the conservation of South Africa’s wildlife and a sustainable and better future for its people.
I went on Safari with Outlook Safaris in June last year on part of a year out. Everything about the company was perfect, even before booking everything was very well taken care of. When I initially emailed with questions I was replied to very quickly and all the information I received was very useful,Robert was very patient with me. The drivers who picked me up in Jo’Burg were very friendly and professional and made the journey up to the Kruger Park very pleasant.I stayed in the most basic accommodation provided but it had all I needed including a fan and heater because the temperature varied so much. The Skukuza Park is stunning, with beautiful birds, baboons all wandering around. The game drives were amazing.
I just want to say that this was one of the most awesome experiences I’ve had. From the moment I first arrived until the sad last day I had to leave was amazing. Moss driving our group to Kruger National Park that first morning. Not sure if it was the early hour, but everyone was quiet and either looking out of the window, listening to their ipod, or getting some more sleep. I wasn’t sure what to expect. After our first stop for gas and snack some conversations started. By the end of the trip, I really missed seeing everyone every day and sharing those wonderful memories. I had such a good time building friendships and sharing laughs. I think I enjoyed making those new friends as much as seeing all of those wonderful animals in their own environment.
Both my husband and myself have traveled extensively and have had unquestionably one of the best experiences of our lives with Outlook Safaris. The first safari we took was the Classic 7 Day Kruger Park Safari, and this January/February we enjoyed the 5 Day Explorer Safari. Both safaris were wonderful and we were able to see many of the “harder to find” animals. The staff is enthusiastic about their jobs and it shows.Their excitement is only outdone by their knowledge of the bush.I would recommend also an overnight at Outlook Lodge on your return to Johannesburg where Chef and Manager Francois will pamper you with wonderful meals. The downy beds and intimate surroundings are refreshing after a soujourn in the bush. All in all, an experience never to be missed.

An incredible company. Debbie the guide and also game driver has a wealth of knowledge and passion for the wilderness like no other. Being a single female traveller, I felt completely safe. All the staff are friendly, the meals delicious and the experience is second to none! The game drive vehicles are large enough to feel safe but small enough to have an intimate experience with the animals.
