Growing up, I always knew that one day I would work in the Kruger National Park. After leaving school, I spent 6 or 7 amazing years travelling East and Southern Africa, learning everything I could as I worked as an overland guide. But the Kruger was always there, calling me home.
When I returned to South Africa, I worked as a safari guide in the Kruger, before starting Kurt Safari Co. a company that has shaped the way that guests experience an authentic Kruger Park Safari drive. The idea back then was to just have one or two vehicles, but the demand for our Kruger safaris grew and so did my dream of giving clients a quality safari experience, something that would just be better and different to what anyone else had to offer.
Over the last 14 years, Kurt Safari Co. has become a leading safari company in the Kruger National Park.
Today, we are not just one of the largest and most established safari operators, but we also pride ourselves on being rated the number 1 Kruger Park Safari Company on TripAdvisor. Our exceptional rating is thanks to our exceptional safari guides, our helpful and professional office team and a superb back up staff, as well as our passion and our dedicated use of modern safari vehicles. All of this allows us to offer our clients a wide variety of high quality, safe, affordable and professional multiple day safari packages and day safari trips into the unforgettable Kruger National Park.
All of our guides are locals who live in the Kruger region. Our guides have many years of safari guiding experience, and many started as trackers in the surrounding Private Reserves, working themselves up to becoming safari guides. Today our guides are amongst the very best in the Kruger.
Over the years we have tried and tested many different itineraries and created the all-inclusive safari packages that see on our website. Our most popular packages include Sunset Afternoon Kruger Park Safaris, Full Day Safaris, Panorama Route Tours and Morning Safaris.
Our safaris depart from Johannesburg 3 times a week and our guests stay at the magnificent Umbhaba Eco Lodge, adjacent to the Kruger National Park.
To make planning and booking your Kurt Safari Kruger Park safari as easy as possible, we have a hands-on professional and highly experienced office staff as well as modern booking systems. Our vehicles are equipped with tracking systems, and 24/7 phone ensures that we are just a call away if you need us. This, together with our great guides and in-house maintenance staff, ensures that your Kruger holiday experience with us meets and goes beyond your wildest expectations.
As we look toward the future, we aim to always keep things as simple and wild as possible. Times might change, but the traditional safari experience should never be changed, or digitalised or modernised. The challenge of finding wildlife in their natural state and enjoying nature at its best will always be the centre of Kurt Safari Co.
And we look forward to having you join our next Kruger Park safari.
