    1. the safari was superb, hilarious guide ranger (Niko) and stunning view of the park. Niko made every effort to look for the Big Five although the weather was not accomodating, i.e quite cold morning hence not much animal activities. But managed to see cheetahs, rhinos, giraffes, zebras, elephants, etc.
    2. impressive lunch menu of ostrich burger, bearwoost ...eventhough i was advised giraffe meat taste as good as the lamb chopped but giraffe was not offered
    3. nonetheless there was a drama when our transport was stopped by a group of police stopped us just 100mtr before entering the park. and was told that our transport did not have the proper license (?) to transport passengers between province. The policewoman told us that the transport will have to be taken to the police station and the transport company will have to pay Rand 5000 to have the van release. But after some arguing, the policewoman finally let us continue without having to pay the fine. Not a good start of the safari...but in the end everything is went smoothly.

    Exciting overall trip although would be better if not for the transport drama.

    Lunch in Soweto was so good I had to go for seconds!

    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 trip was amazing and good organized. We saw all animals we wanted to see in the Kruger Park. One evenening and morning drive was perfect as we saw different animals and a incredible sunset.

    Even our special dietary requirements were fulfilled.

    A big thank you to our tourguides Sebe and Alfred who took care about us and explained so much.

    I can highly recommend the tour with Balanta.

    I had been to Kruger before and I wanted to do things a little different the second time around.
    I heard so many good things about the Panorama Route which Blyde Canyon forms part of - A must do!!!
    In addition to Blyde our guides took us to God's window, Mac mac falls and Burke's potholes.
    We spent two nights at Skukuza in Kruger National Park. Animal sightings were magnificent, our hosts were incredible, accommodation was comfortable, food awesome!!
    100% recommend this company!

    Would highly recommend this sanctuary to learn about cheetahs. Get there early in the morning to experience the cheetah run which was very different and interesting.
    The sanctuary however has more to its facility then just cheetahs, there is a wide range of animals from serval and wild dogs to hyenas and vultures.
    The staff were very informative about the animals and conservation efforts throughout the sanctuary and seemed genuinely concerned with the conservation and well being of all their animals.

    Aaran and I had the most AMAZING experience! Once in a lifetime (well we actually hope to come back ASAP) the staff were exceptional. We felt part of the family. We really are so thankful to everyone who made our holiday so memorable. The drivers George and Sully were so professional and lovely. The safari drivers were all amazing especially Tolly and Ray. Thank you to Aaran for his amazing bbq. Thank you Pauline for our meals you are an amazing person! Thank you Ri for your insightful conversations and warming welcome. Please support these guys at Katekani/ VIVA safaris they are amazing!
