I was traveling together with my brother and Glen took us in our hotel perfectly on time. The ride to Pilensburg was very calm and nicely. Glen is an excellent host and was keeping a conversation with us the entire time. When arriving in the Safari, our ranger was already expecting us and took 2 minutes to start. He was a very funny guy and very patient explaining for us. It was an excellent experience. When arriving back to the main entrance of Pilensburg, Glen was already there and we went back to the hotel. It was an incredible experience. Everything worked as expected the both Susan and Glen were perfect. Hope to see you soon again!

It was incredibly easy to make a trip with Go Safari, especially during these covid times. I have no words to describe how well done their job was done, the communication through emails is very fluent, they have made a plan that has fit perfectly our requirements, even though we have changed the dates a few times. The lodge we have stayed in is absolutely outstanding, we got to see lots of animals and relax in such a beautiful environment. The staff was great. To conclude, there is probably not any better choice than traveling with Go Safari. They will make it really easy and enjoyable. 200% recommendable. I hope that we will be able to travel again in the future with you! Thanks so much for everything!

Glen did an amazing job organizing our trip to South Africa. The trip was for our honeymoon and we wanted to have an "once in a lifetime" trip to South Africa. Glen was able to customize the entire trip, from the start to end and tailor it to what we ere hoping for, even suggesting things we may like! We had originally planned to go last year for our honeymoon, however due to Covid, everything was postponed. Glen was also able to rebook everything and shift around places to accommodate due to COVID restrictions. He even was able to tell us where and when we would need to go for our COVID PCR tests. Again thank you Glen for the amazing adventure, trip and memories.

Hi Jason It was a pleasure meeting you, driving you to the lodge and arranging you honeymoon for you, even though it was a year late:). We have learnt that we need to be flexible and make arrangements as Covid restrictions change. I am glad you had a great time in SA and hope i have the pleasure of arranging another safari for you in the future. Safari greetings Glen

I can’t fault this company when organising our safari. We had a baby travelling with us and they were so helpful in finding a safari that would accommodate him safely too. We travelled comfortably from Joberg to Pilanesberg and arrived to a fantastic lunch before heading off to see a lot of animals including most of the big 5. The guide was excellent and kept us informed with lots of facts all the way around. Definitely recommend booking with these guys.

Hi tokunb Pilanesberg is a great reserve to visit for a day and I am glad your children enjoyed it, they normally do. It was nice that you got to see so many animals, that makes it even better. I look forward to arranging your next safari and every safari is different so you can go again and again and have a new experience. Thank you for writing this good review, I do appreciate it.
