An unforgettable wildlife experience!
The Kruger National Park is a magical place - the excitement of seeing an elephant herd with tiny babies, giraffes drinking or lion cubs playing whilst the adults nap will becomes memories to cherish for life.

Nothing can compare to the breath-taking thrill of seeing a lion for the first time walking through the African bush; spotting a leopard up a tree or being up close and personal to an endangered cheetah.

Kruger National Park, one of the world’s greatest game reserves, is a captivating experience for those open to the drama of the nature that abounds. Wildlife thrives in the reserve and it is home to the legendary ‘Big 5’ making a total of 147 species of mammals. If you’re a bird enthusiast you won’t be disappointed, there are over 500 bird species.

It is an exciting experience visiting the Kruger National Park from the thrilling yet comfortable vantage point of an open safari vehicle with a knowledgeable, experienced and professional Safari Field Guide.

Our passion is to share the countless wonders of nature that Africa has to offer with our guests.

“Still the best” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago on TripAdvisor Just got back from South Africa and our visit to Kruger Park. We met up with John and Anne once again from Regent Safaris and had a great time. It was great to catch up with them And share a few tins. We went for a few drives from Lower Sabie and saw a number of animals. Highly recommend. Visited January 2016

5 star review on TripAdvisor We were recommended to organise our Kruger trip with Ann from Regent's. And I can sincerely say it was the best move we made! Ann not only organised our safari but also our accommodation at the nearby hotel. Everything went smoothly from our room reservations to the early morning pick up by the wonderful Guy!!! Over 2 days he made it his priority that we saw as much as possible and gave us such a lot of information it made Attenborough look amateurish! The vehicle was in good condition and Guy was most attentive to our comfort ie blankets water etc. We saw everything your heart could desire Barr a leopard. To be fair it was not for lack of trying. They r nocturnal and so a little shy during the day. But hey maybe next time??! Yes I would go again and use Ann as Regents Safari proved to be fantastic! Visited October 2015

Ann & John, All I can say for our trip to Mpumalanga. THANK YOU SO MUCH. IT WAS BRILLIANT. REGENT SAFARIS is the BEST. The accommodation you recommended and arranged for us was lovely, food was awesome and the staff so friendly and helpful. What great value. We really felt at home. Our day trips with John and Guy were very memorable and looking at the photos are bringing a huge smile on my face. Despite it being rainy and the mist being out in full force on the day of doing the panorama route, John was so kind to drive through the Sabie area to make up for the disappointment of not seeing God’s Window and then he took us to Harry’s pancakes (best pancakes), the Belgium chocolate shop and the Delagoa Arts and Crafts at Graskop. My oh my. Did I enjoy the shopping. Guy was an amazing guide during our Open landrover safari day in the Kruger Park making us feel at ease. Comfortable under warm blankets in the nippy air driving towards Kruger. And then the surprise of the animals so close to the road. My daughter did not need to use the zoom in setting on the camera much. Elephants, buffalo, rhinos, lions mating, klipspinger, kudus, steenbokkies, giraffes, warthog, bush buck, nyala, hippo, baboons, crocodiles, terrapins, dung beetle, spider nests, lily trotters to name but a few. How we enjoyed the big and the small fauna shown to us. John taking us on the Endangered Wildlife daytrip to Moholoholo Rehab and the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre so that we can experience the wonderful work that they are doing. Touching a cheetah, feeding vultures, scratching an eagle behind its head at Moholoholo made it very special. Seeing the Honey badger Stoffel, the escape artist, not to mention lions, leopard climbing into a tree’s smaller branches, wild dogs, brown Hyena, cheetahs. But it also brought home the danger that these beautiful creatures are encountering from poison, traps, habitat loss and the greed of mankind. It was a trip that brought mixed feelings, sadness but also comfort that there are people out there that are fighting the fight on the animals behalf. Thanks for offering such an informative daytrip. There are still some daytrips to do up in that area with Regent Safaris and I will be working towards doing these trips with them in the future. THANKS REGENT SAFARIS

Hi Ann, we had a lovely time on the game drive, the entire family really enjoyed the day trip. We all just went though our pictures this past weekend & everyone had good comments. It started off with a little rain, so the blankets & poncho's came in handy keeping us warm & dry. Then it warmed up & we had some good sightings, seeing 4 of the big 5 & many other sightings. Kallie was great, really had lots of info on the Park & also helped with info outside the park. We followed his advice regarding a visit to Moholoholo rehab centre, which allowed us to see even more animals & the great work done there.We all want to return to Kruger Park & spend more time exploring the rest of the Park as we realized we had set too little time for such a large area.Many thanx, Hamida

Dear Ann and John, I couldn't thank you enough for all the help you provided me with before the safari and it was the absolute highlight of our 3 weeks in South Africa! Our only regret is not going on a longer safari. John was great, provided us with lots of useful information and stories, a great insight into SA after only having landed 3 days earlier. Gavin was absolutely brilliant, best tour guide on any tour I've ever been on! He was super knowledgable and so quick at spotting little things we would never have noticed. He knew everything about everything, absolutely great guy. We could really tell he was passionate about his job and really wanted us to have a great and unforgettable experience. We had seen 1 of the Big 5 and Gavin was determined we would see more and we knew it was always unpredictable as to what you would see but Gavin had a great attitude and showed us that he was determined we would see more and in the end, we saw 3 out of the 5, it was amazing! As I have a friend living in SA, I would like to say that I'll be coming back to SA at some point again in my life and I would love to do another tour (for longer!) When anyone has asked me and my sister about the best part of SA, we always say without any hesitation that it was the safari! If anyone I know is going to SA, I will be reccommending your company to them.Thank you once again! Kind regards Puiyi

Hi Ann, having just arrived home from our travels round SA thought I would send you just a brief message to say how much we enjoyed our Safari with you last Saturday. As you may have heard from Gavin we were extremely lucky in that we saw Lion, Leopard & Cheetah, aside from Rhino, Elephant and various other Game and birds – all in one day. It was great for me personally to see both Leopard and Cheetah – both at very close range, in the Park. You can thus be assured that you had 4 VERY satisfied customers!!

Ann, I just wanted to pass on my thanks for a near perfect day in the Kruger with Gavin, only spotted cats would have rounded it off. Gavin was an immense guide, informative, attentive, helpful and going out of his way to understand our interests and to try and help. But I'm sure you already knew this. Whilst we shan't be planning any other excursions on this trip now, a return is a must, and we'll be sure to be in touch..........and recommend to friends. Thank you once again. Regards, Mike Ovens

Dear Ann, thank you so much for the Game Drive that was offered to myself and my husband. It was truly a great experience. It was my first time within the Kruger and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I found the guide to be informative and willing to answer any questions that we may have had. To view the wilderness is always a treat and it makes the whole experience so worthwhile to realise that man is just one small piece within this greater world. I cannot judge in any negative way as the drive will be embedded within my memories forever. I especially loved seeing the leopard and the hippo’s. Thanks so much, Cerise Kruger, Sales Executive, XL Millennium Travel.

Dear Ann, We really enjoyed our safari day with Gavin, he was professional, funny and could tell us a LOT about the animals. We had so much questions (it was our first safari ever) but he answered them all and enjoyed it obviously. Although we were really lucky that day with all the animals we've got to see, Gavin knew also where to go during the time it was quieter, we never got bored. So thank you for a really great day on 3rd July, we still talk about it! Kind regards, Lieke

Hi Ann, we had a great day with Gavin and probably used up more than our fair share of his luck as we managed to see the big 5 (albeit the leopard was only clearly visible with binoculars and disappeared into the bush quite quickly so no photos) plus 2 cheetahs (great shots of them), wild dogs, hippos, crocodiles, an hyena and the other usual suspects (zebra, impala, kudu etc) and some smaller species such as turtles (hinged back & leopard) and a chameleon. Gavin was very knowledgeable and did a wonderful job and certainly impressed us, especially my colleagues who had never been in such a park before. Look forward to more such exciting days in the park. Thank you once again for the arrangements and the hotel was also very good - the set menu dinner was delicious and the service was exemplary. I have attached one of the cheetah photos for your viewing pleasure and there are also many on my facebook page. Best Regards – Phill Paul

Hello Ann, I would just like to say thank you very much for the most incredible Game drive that we had on 31st December 2010. Frank was really fantastic !! I have been on many game drives around the country and in many 5 star lodges but none of the game rangers were as knowledgeable, interesting and professional as Frank was. He really went all out to make the drive most pleasurable for all of us. I will most definitely be recommending Regent Safaris! Again thank you. Regards Jackie Zaki

Hi Ann, Sadly we are home back in England now and I just wanted to say thank you for all of your help. You were a pleasure to deal with, helpful, informative and patient with all of our requests and changes as well as phone calls at 5.00am when we got lost. I would also like to say that we enjoyed all of our safaris booked through you and would especially like to say that our time with frank was amazing, he is such a warm and friendly guy, he filled our brains with interesting animal facts and provided us with sightings that we will remember for the rest of our lives. You can tell that he is so passionate about what he does and really tried his very best to find the animals that we most wanted to see: we will be back for that elusive leopard!!!!!! We are already planning another trip around august next year so you will be hearing from us again and in the meantime I will happily recommend both Regent and Frank to anyone and everyone who will listen. Take care and thanks again. Tara

We spent a fantastic day in the Kruger Park with Frank. It was our second guided tour of the Park, but it was very special. Frank's enthusiasm for the Kruger Park and it's animals was contagious. We received a lot of background information about the park and the wildlife that were unknown to us. Overall it was an exciting and great day. Frank did not give up until we found a rhino.

Thank you for a magnificent day, Frank was truly amazing, although you'd think that a guide that managed to find all the big 5, including 3 leopard, could have managed one lousy zebra! Obviously the zebra had a prior engagement elsewhere in the park, and no amount of searching could find them....once again thank you, Alan & Phillipa Perkins

Dear Frank, we returned to Germany after a very fulfilling time in Africa. Of all our impressions, the safari with you remains outstanding. I vividly remember the elephant herd engulfing the car. Everyone was hushed with awe. Occurs rarely in our family. Everything was great, but most of all your ability and willingness to share your enthusiasm. Thank you so much. I wish you a wonderful future at Kruger, stay happy and healthy. Would love to meet you again sometime. Should you ever come to Germany, please drop in! I promise you a free flight over the North Sea estuary. Your`s Heiner Heidtmann and family

Organising everything with you was a breeze and we so appreciated the way you responded promptly and gave us good advice as to what was best for us to do in a limited time.

Dear Ann, We all thoroughly enjoyed our day safari with Frank, John & I have been on several such trips ( we do get a few visitors….) and it was great to be out with such a knowledgeable and passionate guide. All too often we have found that our driver/guide is a little ‘jaded’ if that’s the right word, but this was certainly not the case with Frank. Our friends from the UK also had a great day – it was their first visit to the Kruger Park and they were certainly not disappointed, we had seen 4 out of the big 5 within an hour!!! Anyway, thanks again for our super day out, especially to Frank, and very best wishes for 2011
