          Everything I paid for and more
          Ben was my driver and arrived on time and was pleasant to talk to on the way to the Horseback Safari. The property is beautiful and rustic and James and Bianca were fantastic guides.

          Safe, educational and value-added experience of my trip
          As a solo female traveler, I appreciated clear communications via email for the registration, payment and confirmation. Once in the city, the office communicated via WhatsApp (once I figured out to look there) to ensure I connected with the correct guide, time and place. Ismael was a safe driver, friendly and professional, with great knowledge and historical info. We covered a lot of ground during the tour: Mandela's home, Soweto, Vilakazi Street, a shack village, Hector Peterson memorial; the Apartheid Museum is a must-see to expand your cultural awareness; great info and displays - could easily take 1-2 hours.

          It wasn't bad, but not great
          Caves were closed due to flooding, which is the whole reason we booked it, museum was interesting but not totally worth it

          Top tier experience
          My partner and I were picked up by Darren from our hotel, and we headed over to the campsite ran by Craig in close proximity to Pilanesberg. The setup was basic with a very rustic feel - it was good for the soul to get immersed in nature and just switch off from our everyday lives. There was also less basic accommodation available, but we wanted the authentic African camping experience. Darren also took us to Sterkfontein caves, which was incredible to learn about and explore. The entire experience was absolutely one in a million; I can’t thank them enough for a tour that I will never forget. We were made to feel so welcome - I’m definitely planning on returning some day. Darren is friendly and professional, with a real fountain of knowledge. Thank you for a brilliant holiday

          My first Safari at sunset
          I travel for work and had a free day so I thought I would see some animals while in South Africa, in Johannesburg . The tour was amazing with Erin, from Mongena game lodge. I saw so many animals up close and got to see twice zebras giraffes! Erin was a helpful and insightful tour guide. We had the sunset safari and the view was spectacular! I included some photos to share the amazing scenario that I saw. The reservation includes pick up from your hotel and Ben was an amazing driver. I would recommend this trip to anyone!

          Cultural Experience (Caterpillars optional!)
          Our first trip and first stop in Africa. We made a last minute reservation for the following day and they were able to accommodate us. We had Ben for our guide and he was prompt, courteous and answered all our questions. The staff at the village were top notch and all seemed to really enjoy being there. From the food to the dancing we enjoyed every moment… Even the optional dried caterpillar. We would highly recommend this tour and Ben in particular.

          Terrible experience - Drakensberg
          Really disappointed in the quality of the tour we did with this company: ‘3 day Drakensberg slackpacking and hiking’. Drakensberg is an amazing beautiful landscape, but our guide and the service was a nightmare. First of all, the front tire of the car was already leaking before the start of our trip. We did only 1 of the 3 hikes that were mentioned on the programme. The guide disappeared in the middle of the night without saying anything to drink and party. The last day, we had to give him a call at 7:30 am as he was not yet back. We contacted the company afterwards. They refuse to give a reimbursement because they are a small company. But we paid also a lot of money for this…

          Our first safari was amazing
          We absolutely loved everything about the Safari tour guide Ben was amazing. He was patient and worked with us. I will recommend this to everyone. We were able to see the big 5 and more we loved the snacks and drinks he provided and his strong passion for the animals.

          Excellent safari close to the city
          Since our trip was quite short, the half-day safari was perfect for getting a small taste of nature near Johannesburg. The team at South Africa Adventures was quick to respond to any questions and booking was easy and straightforward. Tebogo, our driver to and from Dinokeng Reserve, was a really friendly guy who was very punctual and was considerate when planning logistics to make sure that we got to the tour on time, and also very informative when it came to my various questions about South Africa. Our safari guide, Jacques, was great - he was always encouraging questions from all the visitors and his passion for his work and care for the environment were very clear.

          Awesome Mini Safari
          This was a great safari. It was my first time, and the whole process was smooth and safe. I was picked up promptly at the appointed time and arrived at the gaming lodge early. The driver, Bongi, was extremely pleasant and informative. I had planned to sleep on the way there, but we spoke the entire one-hour drive. At the reserve, I checked in and wandered the property until we departed. Our guide was informative and attentive to the interests of the guests. The whole experience lasted two and a half hours, with a break built in, where we were provided snacks and drinks. Managed to see lots of things: birds, Mikey’s, impalas, zebras, wildebeest, elephants, etc. No lion made himself visible at this hour in the morning. Overall, a great experience, and I highly recommend it!

          Great safari experience on short notice
          The company we booked with previously cancelled on us last minute and luckily we found South Africa Adventures who were very accommodating especially considering the 1 hour notice. My boyfriend and I had a great safari with them and everything ran smoothly! Our guide Musa was incredible and shared his knowledge of the animals and Johannesburg with us. Would highly recommend
