Thank you for posting your positive review. Our team here at MoAfrika Tours is committed to providing high-quality customer service, and we’re thrilled to hear that we made a good impression on you. Pilanesberg National Park is the closest National Park to Johannesburg. Kruger Park will take you 5 hours 1 way. We are sorry to hear that you didn't spot any of the cats, but we definitely wish you better luck finding them on your next safari! We hope you’ll be back on tour with us again soon! Best regards, Michelle

We woke up very early in the morning because, from Johannesburg, Pilanesburg is a 2-hour trip. As soon as we arrived we saw a herd of giraffes, then we saw all the other big five except the elephants who, on a cool even if sunny day like the one we were in the park, did not feel
