Amazing. Professional & a well run tour.
The Warden who drove this amazing 10 seater open truck/bus was so passionate & knowledgeable.
Outstanding. Saw a lot of wild animals, Elephant, Giraffe, Hippo, Rhino, Zebra etc ( no Lions but were too late in the day for them )
All in all well worth the money
Make sure you go open truck not shut in ( can imagine the sightings are not as good )

This was an excellent day trip to Pilanesberg! The tour operator was very easy to communicate with in advance of the trip; he was on time to pick me up at my hotel, and we had a very enjoyable drive to and from the park. The safari in the park was incredible! Pilanesberg gets far too overshadowed by Kruger; it’s a beautiful park with incredible animal sitings. This was a tour well worth the time and money!

A wonderful day. Jason was on time to start our journey to the Pilanesberg Park. On the way he gave us information about anything interesting we encountered. He is kind and a very good driver. The park is magnificent and worth a visit. With our guide there we saw many different animals such as zebras, elephants, rhinos, lions, giraffes and more. He gave us information about their way of life and their peculiarities. After a few hours we met again with Jason and continued the tour by van. We also had the opportunity to take pictures very close to a beautiful giraffe. The lunch at the resort was excellent. Highly recommended day.

What a wonderful experience! Jason picked us up from our hotel; he was very accommodating, kind, and knowledgeable. He even stopped for coffee in the early morning. The park was beautiful; we got to witness elephants, zebras, giraffes, rhinos.
Jason drove us back and ensured we had a comfortable and pleasant time. If you’re planning a trip to Pilansberg, I would highly recommend this tour.

This was a great experience. Jason was waiting for us before 5:30 am at our hotel. We arrived 20 min early to Pilanesburg and had a great day with our guide Desmond. We saw 3 of the 5 big five. Desmond did it an amazing job trying to hunt down the lions and leopards but they refused to come out for us, lol. It had just been raining for nearly a week straight and some of the roads were closed, but Desmond made sure we got to see as many animals as possible. We stopped and had a pretty tasty lunch and then spent a few more hours on the prowl for the lions and leopards. All in all, a great experience and I would highly recommend for someone who may only have a day from Joburg.

Jason was absolutely amazing - enough so that I chose to go on another tour with him in a week. Pilanesburg was beautiful and we saw SO MANY animals. We saw elephants and rhinos out of the big 5 but we also saw many different kinds of antelope, wildebeests, zebras, giraffes (including two babies) and hippos. You will not regret choosing this company.

Pick up at the hotel was on time, friendly driver with great knowledge of both Johannesburg and thhe park. He made sure that I was at the park in good time. Also giving good advise on the Safari it-selskab, which was done nu the park Rangers. Driver was ready to take me back after the 6 hours. Good and safe driving, I would go with him again anytime.

Jason was there to pick us up punctually at 6am for the comfortable 2.5 hour drive pointing out things of interest on the way. As soon as we entered the park we saw Zebra, giraffes, warthogs as well as some beautiful birds. Jason was very knowledgeable & had a good eye for spotting things we would have otherwise missed. The highlight was watching a large herd of elephants make their way along a ridge to a watering hole. We had a very good lunch at the Bonjala resort overlooking the valley. A great day strongly recommended.

I highly recommend this tour! Jason was very personable and offered a wealth of information on South Africa -- its flora and fauna. The meal was totally gourmet, and we had a beautiful day to enjoy. It was worth every penny. So glad I got to see the amazing Pilanesberg National Park. Lots of wow! moments.

Would highly recommend this tour. Jason is a great guy and it was fantastic chatting about the area on the way to the park - he is very knowledgable. I've done a few safaris across Africa and can say Pilanesburg had the highest concentration of elephants/rhinos I've seen. Nico was a very good guide and we learnt a lot on the safari about the park and the different animals. The entire day was very well organised.
