    Thus trip was totally worth it! The cave and the museum were fabulous and we couldn't have had a better guide! Thanks Willem!

    Amazing experience for those on a tight schedule. Sibu, my guide, was amazing. Safe transport and he was very knowledgeable and trained about the park and the animals. We saw many on the two game drives (split by a stop for a coffee) and ended with a nice lunch at one of the lodges. Excellent option if you are trying to sneak in a safari on a business (or personal) trip!

    Just over an hour from Pretoria we visited this little gem. Saw the usual number of animals, and fortunate to see 10 Rhinos, including mum and baby you took their time to watch these curious tourists from Australia.
    Hundreds of elephants, including a male, with only one tusk, who made us reverse for quite some distance - which sent our Blood Pressure soaring. In the end we realised that he was just clearing the path on the road so that his herd could go down to the water. Brilliant and exciting. Denise and David Schokman. Perth. Western Australia..

    A fantastic tour! We were searching for something special to do to celebrate my wife's birthday, so we booked the Elephant/Monkey Sanctuary Tour. And folks, we found it here! The experience was UNFORGETTABLE!! We not only got to view the elephants and monkeys. We got to interact with them by feeding them and walking with them. We were even allowed to touch the elephants. Priceless!

    Anton was our guide, and he was phenomenal! His knowledge and passion for Johannesburg and the surrounding areas heightened our experience beyond our expectations. He enlightened us with historical and cultural information and was happy to answer all of our questions. He even assisted us in finding great lunch venues and African markets. He also recommended other things to do/ see during the tour. Because Anton was such an excellent guide, we ended up booking the Johannesburg/Soweto tour to complete our stay: definitely, a must before you leave SA!

    I loved this trip. I have never been on an e bike and am 73 years old but I managed fine. It was interesting and we saw a large selection of animals. Ostrich zebra wildebeest and giraffe. It was a trip of a lifetime.

    Was a very relaxing and informative tour, with the guide in the vehicle. He helped point out the animals as well as give a wider description of the nature of Southern Africa and Africa as a whole.

    We booked an 8 hour Rhino and Lion Park guided tour with the Anton ! First let me say that Anton made this overall tour such a memorable experience for my friend and I ! He was very knowledgeable about South Africa as a whole, and brought passion for the entire 8 hours. We originally were supposed to be at the park for the whole day, but were notified when we got there that the park would be closed at 1pm that day leaving us with a few hours to see the animals. Anton immediately suggested another solution and added to drive us to see the Sterkfontein Caves right after ! We got a chance to see all the beautiful animals the safari had to offer, have a delicious lunch with our tour guide Anton, and to end the day seeing the underground caves! I would give Anton 10 out of 10 stars for his professionalism, his expertise with his knowledge of the safari animals, and just being a great person and providing laughs for my friend and I during the time we spent with him. Was a pleasure meeting him! Go book this tour you will not be disappointed !!

    We had a wonderful trip and Anton, our guide, was excellent and welcoming. I recommend Mmilo Tours for its personal touch and flexibility. Anton went out of his way to ensure we had everything needed. He knew the park quite well and offered a personal touch to everything we did.

    Bakubung Lodge was also *wonderful.* Our biggest regret is not staying there longer! The food was really nice and the "proper braai" after our evening safari was a wonderful, authentic experience. We had a basic room, and it was roomy, spacious, and offered plenty of natural light. There was a full tub and shower, with plenty of hot water after a nice day in the park.

    It was an amazing 3 days going from Sandton City to Pilanesberg & Sun City. The views were amazing and driving around the reserve was a once -in -a -lifetime experience. Our guide Jakes was very experienced, and he knew where to look for the animals. His eyes was also very sharp...he can spot animals from a mile away. Overall was a very interesting tour and we were well taken care of.

    Thank you to the team at Horseback Africa.

    My wife and I had an amazing time with you. The staff are very friendly and knowledgable and the food is amazing.

    We did the early morning horseback safari and in all my life I have never experienced anything like it. You get so close to the game that it feels like you can reach out and touch the animals.

    We stayed in the Bushmans cottage and what an amazing experience indeed. At night one experiences the peacefulness of the bush and you awake in the mornings to the game and horses grazing close by.

    The lion and serval interaction is one of those experiences that really puts you in touch with some of our big cats. Taking a walk in the veld with the lion cubs is certainly a unique experience.

    For such a short drive from the East Rand, it certainly does make one feel that you are in the heart of the bush. And for a nature lover like myself, I cannot ask for more.

    If you are looking for a unique getaway with amazing experiences, this most certainly should be at the top of your list.

    Had a day between flights and wanted to see the sights. Faeez was prompt, and vehicle was clean and comfortable.
    He was knowledgeable and friendly giving us an interesting perspective on the history and politics of his city.

    I was very unsure about booking onto this trip as there were no reviews and I was a solo traveller but I am so glad I took the chance! Jakes was so welcoming and made me feel at ease straight away. He made sure I was safe and I had the luxury of a private tour because no else booked onto it! Jakes was very knowledgeable and told me many stories about this amazing place. The highlights for me have got to be the horseback safari where I got up close to giraffes and zebras and the Lesedi Cultural Village which was brilliant.
    Thank you so much Jakes, I will be recommending you to my friends and family here in the UK!
