3 Day Classic Kruger National Park Safari
Raymond M
, Dec 2019
Overall I give this safari package a 5 star rating. I was beyond what I could have ever imagined. Viva Safaris goes out of their way to give you the ultimate safari experience through sunrise, sunset and all day drives through the game parks. The personnel at the loge were exceptional, the food was great. The only negative item was that I was given the impression that on the day of arrival there would be time to relax, maybe take a dip in the pool before heading out on the sunset drive. The drive from Johannesburg took 8 hours including stops so we didn't arrive until 5:00 pm and the sunset drive was departing at 5:30 so there was barely enough time to put your bags in the room before activities begin. I would definitely do this safari again, although next time I would book either the 4 or 5 day instead of the 3 day.

Broken down vehicles & poor customer service

Day 1 we arrived an hour late (broken down bus). They then tried to put 12 of us in a 10 seater jeep, as they only had 1 driver. We refused and asked for a second jeep (given one of the selling points is that only 9 people will be in a jeep), so we were further delayed to wait for a second driver to arrive. There was no urgency or apology from the staff. We started our safari at 5.40pm (the sun sets at 5.50). In my opinion, this was absolutely pointless. Our jeep then broke down twice, and turns out the same car had broken down earlier in the day. Given there were other jeeps, I’m not sure why we used that car. Day 2, we departed for our day at Kruger at 8am (15 minutes late). Our driver (Rex) kept us waiting almost an hour on a toilet break when we got to the park, so our safari didn’t actually start until sometime after 10am. I’m not sure what we were waiting for- it seemed a chance for the drivers to smoke and chat. Again, no rush or urgency from the staff, and zero consideration of customer satisfaction. At the end of the day, Rex was certainly in a rush to drop everyone back to their lodges, so that he could get home. He was speeding at over 120km/h, in an open jeep with a 2 year old in the back. The impression he gave was that he didn’t care about anything that affected our time or our enjoyment, only when it affected his time. After our safari, I heard from other guests who had been on safaris with Rex on previous days that he had driven so fast in Kruger, that he almost hit a giraffe crossing a road. I also met numerous people on other viva safari tours, who experienced issues with late starts and broken down vehicles. There was one particularly bad accident the day before we arrived, where the break-pads failed going downhill. 2 people went to hospital (one with particularly bad cuts & bruises, and 2 black eyes). Day 3, on the drive back to Johannesburg, one of the buses broke down, so we had to stop for an hour while people and luggage were shuffled between buses Everyone I met felt the same and many people have made complaints during the trip. We are so confused how there are so many good reviews. I think Viva safaris need to work on their vehicles and driver training (However, I do exclude one driver (Victor) from this. He was the only person that genuinely seemed to care about our enjoyment and trying to find the animals). On the plus side, the accommodation at Tremisana exceeded our expectations, and the food was very nice.
