About Kruger South Safaris

We have come a long way from our humble beginnings when the company was first founded by Denise Carey in 2006. Isivuba is the Matabele (now Ndebele) word for the founders favorite bird, the Pied Kingfisher (Ceryle rudis) which is the Logo of Isivuba Tours & Safaris.

Denise has a long history in the tourism industry and has worked as a Freelance guide for a number of different operators over the years. Denise's guiding has taken her all over South and Southern Africa and she has guided tours ranging from Open Vehicle Game Drives in the Kruger National Park; Overlanding Camping Safari Tours around South Africa, Swaziland, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia and Mozambique to Luxury Private Tours in and around South Africa. Denise taught herself German and Zulu over the years, and speaks a little bit of Dutch and Italian.

Since 2015 sibling sister Felicity Carey has been working as the main booking agent for Isivuba Tours & Safaris taking care of all client enquiries. Felicity is also a Freelance Tourist Guide with a lot of experience guiding in Mpumalanga Province, the Kruger National Park Open Safari Vehicle Industry, Tours into the neighboring countries of Mozambique and Swaziland, and more recently Small Group Tours throughout South Africa. Felicity is very comfortable guiding Dutch groups and has taught herself a bit of German and Portuguese.

Together the Safari Sister duo use their years of combined experience in the tourism industry to ensure their guests an unforgettable experience, attention to detail and customer service being top priorities.

Whilst Isivuba Tours & Safaris caters for the local market, Kruger South Safaris is a platform for International visitors to make the most out of their visit to our region.  Join an existing Tour or let us tailor make a package for your and your family or friends!!!

Where third party service providers are used they have all the necessary permutations and insurances in place and all guides are fully qualified and registered with the relevant Tourism Authorities.

Felcity and Denise would like to welcome Tracey to our team.  Tracey joined the company in 2010 and will be responsible for office admin and reservations.

Kruger South Safaris is based in the Mpumalanga Lowveld town of Nelspruit (Mbombela), gateway to the southern Kruger National Park region.  Our main aim is and always has been to offer value for money wildlife experiences to visitors to our region.  We look forward to being of service to you, your family, your friends, and your group!!!
