Having visited Kruger before i was apprehensive of what this tour would hold, but i was blown away by the experience we had with MyAfrica, Our guide, Josh was a wealth of knowledge and the sightings were plentiful. Being on the game viewer gave us an advantage at all the sightings with being higher than the other car/s at the sightings. We have already booked our next overnight stay with MyAfrica as we grew a love for birding while on this tour and would love to try that one too.
