The Kruger National Park has everything to enthrall you far beyond expectation. See the big 5 up close and personal, watch a herd of Zebra lazily feeding in the midday sun, see the ever alert Reedbuck, long after they have spotted you, watch the hippo’s as they laze in the late afternoon sun while the crocodiles, well only the crocodiles will know what they are doing…
The evenings are nothing short of magical. A traditional South African braai, (bbq) shared with friends comes alive when the night sky lights up with stars not seen in big cities. Once you are ready for your well earned nights rest, you will find that gone are the noisy city life sounds and instead you can lie back and try to identify the sounds of the laughing hyena or territorial roar of the lions until finally you get lulled to sleep by the chirping of the insects.
We visit areas such as The Northern Drakensberg Mountains in the Limpopo/Mpumalanga Provinces featuring The Blyde River Canyon (third largest canyon in the world!) The area also boasts the scenic areas of God’s Window, Lisbon Falls and The Three Rondavels – all part of the Panorama Route.
We are now back in the cold climes of England, the autumn colours just disappearing. We enjoyed a good journey home following what turned out to be quite a fantastic 5 day safari. It was not only that we saw many species of animal but we saw them in unique situations: the confrontation in the river between a male lion and a hippo, the stalking of the giraffe by a lion pride, 4 cheetahs sunning themselves only 5 metres from the roadside, a pride of 26 lions at a waterhole (14 of them cubs), 17 wild dogs in playful mood and so it went on day after day. And of course at last my leopard, a great experience for me.George, Doreen and I thank you for a fantastic holiday in the Kruger, your great knowledge about both the animals and the birds made the trip all the more interesting. There was never a dull moment.We wish you all the best with your company and hope that in the future we will again call upon you for a safari. Judy, keep practising and we are sure that Wimbledon will call you at some point. With Very Best Wishes and Kindest Thoughts. Doreen and Malcolm.

I must write and thank you for the excellent and well organized safari tour you arranged for me. All preparations from the airport pick up / transportation to and from Kruger Park, the overnight stays in the lodges were spot on and were executed very professionally. Your guidance through the park and where to see the animals was exceptional.I never thought this was possible to see that much wild life. Your knowledge is commendable. I learned a lot during my safari adventure. The experience will be a lifetime memory for me. Next year I will return with my family for another safari with you. I feel safe with them being under your management. Thanks again for the memorable experience. Sincerely. Ingo V. Mewes (Guangdong, CHINA).
George, thank you for a wonderful safari. You are the perfect host, on-time, gracious, dependable and very knowledgeable. You are gifted in knowing where the animals are and how to stay ahead of them for best viewing. The camps you chose were top quality and the food was delicious. I know you love what you are doing because it certainly came across loud and clear during my visit. I hated to leave and I actually missed your company after you dropped me off. But I know you had to prepare for the people coming in for next week's safari. I know they will cherish the time spent with you, just as I do. Let's stay in touch as I would like to keep up with your wild adventures. Please give my regards to Judy and tell her to stay in the "Winner's Circle". Almost forgot, have you gotten any more super rare pics? Best regards. Bill Martin (U.S.A).
"What a pleasure meeting you and touring with your company. George, you are so knowledgeable and made the tour so informative as well as fun. For us, it was a trip of a lifetime! We saw so many animals each day, many more than we even thought we would. Your help in arranging all accommodation is much appreciated. The bungalows were charming, everything was clean and we enjoyed ourselves immensely!! If you can take a 15 year old away from their electronics (phone, text, tv, computer) and have a wonderful trip, you know just how exciting and thrilling the whole experience was!! At any rate, if you would like to give my email out as a reference that is just fine. We would love to come back sometime and you can be sure we will contact you if we do!! take care. Michele and Marina Hackett (U.S.A)
The safari was amazing from start to finish! From the moment we entered Kruger we were shocked by the sheer amount & variety of animals that we were able to see & how close up we got as well. Our Boma Tour guide had an amazing amount of knowledge & provided us with real insight into the animals that we saw, happily answering our endless questions & even providing a cup of coffee to start our early morning drive. From Cheetahs, leopards, lions and black & white rhinos to tiny bush babies & cheeky vervet monkeys we saw the lot. I would strongly recommend Boma Tours & am already saving for my next opportunity. Thanks again for being fantastic during our safari, hope all is well with you & your family. Best wishes. Abi & Ally. (U.K).
