      We booked with Masala’s travel for 7 days. We had a great guide named John who was super nice and very acknowledgeable. He would take us to some special places we would have never known about if we didn’t have him as our guide! During our safari... we were able to see the Big Five!! We were so happy as a lot of other people we have chatted with only saw four. The only thing I would suggest is if you don’t already have lodging accommodations... pay a little extra and stay at a lodge or hotel close to one of the gates near Kruger. We didn’t have the best experience at Kruger Adventure Lodging. More
