    We had 1 full day in Jo’Burg and used this to see the city. Highly recommend doing the Soweto tour too, that was probably the best part of this activity. Our guide was phenomenal.

    Our guide for this tour was Cpho (hopefully I spelled his name correctly). He was a wonderful guide, shared so much information and was fun to tour with. Definitely a 10 out of 10 experience !

    We had a great bike ride with Themba through Soweto - learning about the history and discussing what’s happening today. We felt very safe throughout and were not bothered by random strangers (which is what would have happened if we were on our own). We also ended up riding through the lead up to an ANC rally in prep for the elections. Strong reco!

    Fantastic Experience. The hotel I stayed at recommended this trip and linked me up with Guide Zabb. The drive alone was great!

    My experience was amazing. High winds caused the balloon trip to be canceled the night before. While we were disappointed not to be able to take the ride, Stuart offered to provide an alternative itinerary for us so that we were not stuck in our hotel for a day on short notice. The options he provided were awesome for our family and he gave us the highest quality tour of some of the Jo-berg highlights on the way to our destinations.

    I highly recommend his company and hope to get that balloon ride in the next time I am in town.

    My wife and I were lucky enough to have done a tour in April 2024 with Mo and it was a fantastic experience. It was of course, a very comfortable, smooth trip, we were very well looked after.

    Mo was totally comprehensive, and gave us a good sense of this amazing city. Mo was charastmatic, and deeply knowledgeable and considered. He had an acute understanding of profound topics involving the city, history, politics, and sociology. He was very approachable, and passionate in sharing his knowledge which is exactly what you want when you want to get to know the deeper parts of a city.

    It was a very refreshing experience, and fantastic to do with someone from the area like Mo. Honestly a must-do experience for any trip to South Africa, it was eye-opening and critical I think to be able to better understand the city and country. You will be sorely missing this tour if you decide to not visit Johannesburg, and see only other cities.

    An amazing guide, tour, and of course such a pleasure see this extrodinary city!

    We stayed at Tremisana and Katekani Lodges. The lodges has its differences in terms of facilities but both lodge’s staff are really really amazing hosts.
    My husband and I are vegetarian/vegan and both needs are well catered for. We really enjoyed Margarets cooking at Katekani. Thank you so much!
    The activities are well organised in our case which made us extended our stay. They will always give you a briefing the night before for your full day activities the following day which we really appreciate so we dont have to rely on our own notes.
    We experienced game drives in Bulale reserve, full day game drives in Kruger, some bush walks and a lil bit of night drive after sunset dinner in the bush.
    Price wise, I would say they are reasonable and decent compared to other safari tour agencies I’ve inquired initially. Overall, we both enjoyed our first safari experience and glad we chose Viva Safaris.

    PS. We had seen tons of animals but only posting some.

    Had a great walking tour with Welile. I did a morning tour and was the only person that booked so it became a private tour unintentionally. Welile was very informative and engaging while showing me all that Soweto has to offer. I walked away with more knowledge of the history of Soweto and also enjoyed the lunch provided. Highly recommend this tour if you want to see the cultural side of Jo'burg.

    Our driver Nkululeko took us on the most memorable trip we have ever had. We were taken into the heart of the township where we met and spoke to some incredible people who are living in such terrible poverty. We were welcomed by everyone with smiles and the children were adorable and so happy. What an experience. Nkululeko is a credit to your company and have no hesitation in recommending him and your fantastic tour

    J'ai adoré :) c'était vraiment magnifique et grandiose :
    A very beautiful experience to do once in life,
    full of beauty of nature (in savannah ecosystem), and the driver - that i thank him a lot - has a strong knowledge to know where to drive and to find animals ( he already did that more than 1000 times )

    In this same experience, i got the chance to see the "big 5" : lions, elephants, rhinoceros, african buffalo, lion and leopard ; and also antilops, hippopotamus, waterbuck cow, birds (ibis, cormorant, drongo, old world sparrow, large grey babbler, crimson-breasted shrike, cape starling, helmeted guineafowl ... ), cricket ; all that around african trees :)

    We had an late evening flight and decided to go on a half day tour in Johannesburg with Pastor. Absolutely the right decision!
    Everything was perfect, starting from the on time pickup to the tour itself. We learned way more than expected and seen so many different places of Johannesburg. Pastor obsolete knew how to show the differences of Johannesburg that you encounter within few hundred meters.
    100% recommended!
