    Buffalo Solider was our tour guide, a very knowledgeable and friendly individual. He knew exactly where to find the animals and gave background information on each one we saw. It is a matter of luck to see each animal but overall an amazing experience, would definitely recommend this experience to anyone.

    Quite cold in the morning but quickly warmed up so be advised if planning on taking a trip in June.

    The Sterkfontein Cave Experience is absolutely incredible. The Maropeng museum is also a great educational experience.

    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.

    Everything was great. From the quick booking till the end.
    In the morning Solli came to pick us up from the hotel already with a friendly attitude even tho he was early morning. During the drive we got a small briefing for how will be the day and then we enjoyed the drive.
    when we arrived at the Safari the renger Nico was waiting for us also with a friendly attitude. He shared with us all his knowledge about everything of the safari and all the animals we saw. We saw 4 out of 5 of the Big Five ( Lion, Elephant, Rhino and Leopard) and many other.
    the lunch break was also great surrounded by giraffes, Cudù and warthog.
    I WOULD STRONGLY RECOMMEND IT TO EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO ENJOY A NICE SAFARI WITH A LOT OF KNOWLEDGE AND FUN.

    Thanks again for the nice experience.

    The higlight was visiting Mandela's house. Such great memories in there and I learned quite a lot..
    I also got to experience the different levels of life in Soweto.
    Before I thought it was very dangerous but it's just a safe place full of historic events.

    Steve is an amazing guide! He is so incredibly knowledgeable about the city and its history. He has a wonderful personality which made the tour enjoyable and the day flew by. We were able to visit Soweto on South Africa’s national holiday, Youth Day. Soweto was lively and it was wonderful experiencing the celebratory vibe of the area. There was music, food, and the residents were friendly and accommodating. We visited the prison where Mandela and other freedom fighters were jailed and also toured South Africa’s Constitutional Court (their Supreme Court). Steve also took us on a driving tour where we were able to visit some of the city’s neighborhoods such as Hilbrow and the CBD. We took this tour on our first day in the city and it was a great way to start off our trip.

    I had the BEST day on this tour. Gilda was so welcoming I felt like I had known her for years with min a short space of time. The tour was exactly what I had been looking for - something a bit different, away from the standard tour that you normally get. There was so much to see and so much to learn. My brain feels very full in the best way. Gilda is completely awesome as are the local guides used at various points. Book this tour - you will not regret it!

    Fantastic tour of Soweto, highlight was getting to walk with the locals and visit their houses. Thabang was a great tour guide - friendly, great knowledge and made us feel safe and looked after at all times. Would definitely recommend

    The cave tour was very interesting. Our guide’s knowledge was extensive. He answered our questions & was very interactive with us.

    Then we went to the museum. The architecture of the building was wonderful and surrounding area beautiful. The museum had interactive exhibits which made it even more interesting & added some fun!

    I highly recommend that anyone in the Johannesburg area do this tour!
