Khalanga Safaris is small, family run tour operator founded in 2016 by local guide Shoes Mathebula after 20 years of working as a tracker, guide and field ranger in and around Kruger Park. Shoes is now applying his passion for nature, tourism and guiding to his own business and has managed to create a tourism experience that has garnered national attention (2018 Provincial Lilizela Award Winner - best tour operator) and outstanding reviews across many booking and rating platforms. Khalanga Safaris combines excellent customer service and profound understanding of the nature to create an unforgettable African experience that is so much more than a holiday. When Covid came around this had a profound effect on the whole tourism industry in South Africa and worldwide, and Khalanga Safaris was not spared; however we are now looking forward to better times and have started welcoming tourists again to our (as we see it) most beautiful part of South Africa. We can't wait to create a tailored Kruger Park experience for you that is so much more than a holiday.
