Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Highly recommend helpful and knowledgeable local guide, Doug, for travel and tour requirements in Hoedspruit and Kruger National Park. Anything from local transfers to fully fledged overnight tours.

Two great full days of safari. Doug is knowledgeable in land animals, birds and plants, very generous of his time and efforts to have us see a maximum of animals. Any question my son and I had was bound to have an answer, even if it came after checking with other guides.

A super guide to have.

We had booked a 2 day visit to the Krugerpark. It has been a wonderful experience. We saw all of the big 5. Doug was a wonderful guide. He is able to answer any question you have. He has a warm personality and is a careful driver. He is just made for doing this job. I might come back in the future and will definitely book again with him. Thx Doug!

We did a full day kruger park safari with Doug and it was one of the best experiences of our lives! He was very friendly, helpful and he shared so much knowledge about the animals. For every animal that we saw, he stopped and told us the key informations needed to understand the animal and how he inserts in the ecosystem. I strongly suggest Little Five Safaris to anyone that wants a perfect safari experience!
Ps: we saw 4/5 of the Big Five on that day!

We had an amazing 5 night trip in the Kruger park. Couldn't believe how many animals we saw! Doug is a very knowledgeable and passionate guide and talked us through many birds and plants etc, far from 9 to 5 as we saw loads of animals from the camp every evening! We saw more than the big 5 - the super 7 (I had never heard of it but it's the big 5 plus cheetah and wild dog!). The accommodation organised felt like we were right in the bush and Helen's food was amazing! Would definitely recommend little 5 for a great safari experience.
