    Just what we needed to end our axing holiday to South Africa. Our pick up from our hotel was smooth and out guide was excellent we saw so many animals it was incredible. Definitely ticked an incredible experience off my bucket list.

    Funny ranger dedicated to show us many animals. Nice meal in the park with a view. Awesome day overall.

    The Full-Day Pilanesburg Nature Reserve Tour was a great experience! It truly added great memories to our time in South Africa. Sunny took us to and from the reserve, and he was prompt and had great energy. Desmond was our guide at the reserve, and he was very friendly and very knowledgeable about the park and animals. We saw 3 of the big 5 and countless other species of animals in their natural habitat. I highly recommend 👌🏾

    We had a fantastic day thanks to great customer service from Arnold our driver and Nicol our guide.Both took great care of us and made sure we got to the park and enjoyed a very memorable day despite stormy weather in the morning. We learnt a great deal during the day and had some very memorable experiences. The only downside was that one of our fellow travellers chose to complain about Aircon levels after they finished the tour, something they had never mentioned all day despite them being present when other customers had requested more air con and had their request met promptly and efficiently. Despite this one minor point we had an outstanding day and full marks to Arnold,and Nicol.

    Our safari guide was very knowledgeable about plant- and wildlife, doing his best to let us see the big 5. On every sighting he gave a thorough explanation, making sure every one had the time to take pictures. I definitely recommend to visit Pilanesberg (or really any park) with a guide. They use radios to share the latest sightings giving you ample of opportunity to see some iconic species.

    Bright (our safari guide) was knowledgeable and known as the ‘Leopard whisperer’ who did not fail to deliver. We saw cheetahs, leopards, lions as well as all of the non-predator animals. Lunch was a mix of options (burger or sandwiches). Transport was on time and there were about 10 people in the group. We’d recommend bring your own binoculars as the animals can be seen at a distance given you stay on the built roads through the park. Also, you’re picked up at ~6am with breakfast not being included. You do stop on route at a service station though it’s luck of the draw what is available. We’d recommend packing breakfast and water for the journey to and from Pilanesberg. Highly recommend this tour!
