    Jason is a wonderful guide. He picked me up from my hotel in Pretoria before getting the other passengers in Johannesburg (there were three of us total on the tour). He made occasional comments as we drove towards Pilanesberg then when we got to the park, we transferred to an open top vehicle with a ranger. With her, we spent three amazing hours spotting animals inside the park. We saw so many animals! I didn’t have high hopes because it had just rained and it’s the middle of the summer but we saw three of the big five, and much more. Jason picked us up for lunch which was at a beautiful, high-end bush resort. Incredible food. He then took us on another two hour safari through the park in his van, before we journeyed home. We saw so many fantastic things – I had the best day. What a great time!

    Not what I expected. After booking I asked Jason if we could do an open vehicle instead of the closed vehicle - which I had seen as an option at one point in time. I did not realize that switching to the open vehicle - which we paid more for - meant this would no longer be a private tour, but rather a group tour. The biggest issue with this was it meant once we arrived at Pilanesberg we waited an hour for the group tour to start. It also made Jason essentially a cab driver from Johannesburg to the Safari and then back. After the 4 hour game drive Jason took us to lunch, which was great, but by the time that was over it was time to drive back to Johannesburg. I was under the impression there would be a second opportunity to go into the park and see wildlife, but that was not the case.

    An amazing tour as we had the minibus to ourselves. We saw most of the big 5 - Elephant, hippo, rhino, giraffe, zebra, willdebeast, warthog, buffalo, assorted antelope and birds. Due to recent rains the grass was too long to see any of the big cats.

    jason was awesome. allowed us plenty of time for wildlife viewing and was extremely knowledgeable and was just as excited as we were to be on the tour! we saw wild elephants, rhinos, giraffes, wildebeests, hippos, crocs, and so much more!! i would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a private tour of the Pilanesberg National Park

    Our tour guide Jason gave us an awesome tour, we traveled in comfort and had a great lunch. We got to many animals, a lot more that I was expecting to see. The pick up and drop off at our hotel made things easy. Highly recommend this tour.
