With Reniga Bitsanang Mabanne
Mr. and Ms. Mabanne and their two sons started Reteno Safaris in 2008. Kruger National Park and some nearby lodges told them that they are often overbooked and would hire them, but they have received very few bookings from them. So, the Mabanne family are now offering game drives inside Kruger directly through People-First Tourism. The Mabannes will serve as drives and guides themselves or will employ local staff also previously trained by local international lodges.
Visitors will enjoy a customized game drive in Kruger National Park guided by an experienced driver and game guide. The driver/guide will be waiting for your group at Kruger National Park’s Orpen Gate at 6am with a comfortable and reliable Toyota Landcruiser. You should come dressed appropriately for the weather and bring drinking water. The price includes admission to the park, and light refreshments. The pace and focus of the drive will be tailored to the group's wishes, the season, and the known movements of wildlife. Half-day trips end approximately at 12 noon; full-day trips end approximately at 3:30pm.
