We had a wonderful safari experience that we booked through Siyabona Africa! The company was kind enough to pick us up from where we were staying inside Kruger, and our guide was extremely knowledgeable and made sure we had the best experience possible. Dominique Overmeyer (the reservation specialist) was very helpful in getting our safari booked. I would recommend Siyabona to anyone looking for a great safari experience!

Yolande did a fabulous job in planning our trip through Kenya, Tanzania and Rwanda. There was not one glitch with the plans and she was an exceptional communicator before and after the journey. The properties were fantastic and the itinerary exceptional! We did not have to worry about one thing while traveling as all transfers, guides, flights and plans were pre-determined. Thanks for a memorable and easy safari experience. I would highly recommend Yolande and Siyabona and hope to use them in the future for another trip!

Our vacation at Kruger National Park was superbly organised by Siyabona. Lora-Leigh responded quickly to our queries and regularly kept us up to date with bookings, etc. We had a great holiday where everything ran very smoothly. We would definitely use Siyabona to arrange our next trip in Africa.

Fantastic experience, exactly as promised. Siyabona arranged all details for a private one-day safari in Kruger Park, with a wonderful, experienced driver. We also had some luck on our side as we saw 4 of the Big 5 that day. I cannot wait to return with my entire family.
