    Simply amazing! Apart from the animals the best part of the tour was our guide Petro, a person with a lot of knowledge and sense of humor. I really enjoyed!

    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!

    As mentioned in my title, we were overall very happy with the experience with just one niggle - the booking mentioned we would have a breakfast at a game reserve after the experience. In the end we were provided with a spread of food for breakfast on a table after the experience in the bush. This was nice, but not entirely what I had expected in comparison to a hot and freshly cooked breakfast and, as a woman, I would have appreciated the breakfast in a lodge with the opportunity to use a bathroom! As it was, we were out from 4.30am and back at our own private lodge around 9.30am so I was unable to use a toilet in this time - something to bear in mind. My partner (male) went behind a bush to relieve himself, as did another male on the hot air balloon trip.

    Now, to go backwards...!

    We were booked on a Wed with a back up date of Thurs. Wed was cancelled due to bad weather - we did not receive a call or email to advise of this directly but when I checked with my lodge after our evening game trip they informed us the hot air balloon people had called them to advise it was cancelled. We were then called by the hot air balloon people in our room the next day and told that Thurs was fully booked and can we do Fri (our last day) instead. This was a little inconvenient as we had to check out that day but we didn't want to miss out so we went ahead.

    We then received whatsapp communication directly to confirm timings etc which was good. Our pick up driver actually arrived 15 mins early but was happy to wait. I wonder if this is intentional to give you time to get ready if you have overslept!?!

    Private drive to the take off place and the staff there were all very good and polite and it felt very safe. Lovely experience but the wind was very gentle so we didn't travel as far as we had expected. Cannot be helped. Experience itself was lovely. Not at all scary like I thought and not bumpy for take off or landing.

    The drive back to our lodge was excellent and was indeed like a mini game drive. Our drive (Sami, I believe his name was) was great and very knowledgable. We got lucky and saw lots of things on the drive including a very close encounter with elephants.

    I would recommend but I think the itinerary needs to be updated to advise re breakfast being something in the bush and toilet facilities not available etc.

    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..

    The tour wasn’t good. Wasn’t impressed at all the driver was very strange. First thing he says to me when I get in after he was late is do you live in China, I said no. Kept asking abit more about the topic. Not sure why it mattered. Made me feel abit uncomfortable. Going to pick up the next people he must’ve missed at least 7 turns turning a 15 minute drive into a 30 minute drive. After we picked them up on our way to the park. He drove like it was a mad dash to get to the park. Almost crashing in oncoming while trying to pass. We arrive and the other people I hear say, that was the worst drive ever. We go into the park for our safari drive which was really underwhelming. They race thru the park not allowing anyone to just look for animals that could be hidden. I didn’t know that this park they cut the horns off the rhinos. Had I known that I wouldn’t have gone. Our tour included lunch so it said but after we came back the driver said we’re going back to the city. We were all confused cause we thought the tour was supposed to be longer. We all said no were supposed to get lunch the tour isn’t supposed to end now. He has to call his boss or someone. They bring us to the restaurant which clearly they just added cause there was no other tour groups there despite seeing so many groups in the park. Didn’t enjoy this tour at all.

    We spent a great day in an amazing place. The scenery is stunning and the guides are experimented, kind and very professional. Great to see all these animals in there natural habitat and while respecting their own peace and comfort. Guides are cautious to take great care of animals and we could see many of them without disturbing their peace. Special mention and thanks to Nhlanhla from Thiya Tours & Safaris who has made an experience unforgettable !

    We got to see 3 of the big fives and the giraffes and zebras were amazing. Our driver was kind and courteous. Really enjoy the trip. At the stop to have lunch at the casino we had Mexican food and the food was great and great service as well. Recommend the experience.

    Very nice places to be in contact with nature! I saw a lot of rinos, we don't get to to do that on other safaris. On lion park, we interact with lion cubs and giraffes.

    The full-day trip (half-day safari) was great! We saw the majority of the Big 5. Having been on a 2-day safari in the past, the shorter safari was exactly what I needed. Our guide to and from the safari, "MK", was terrific. He was knowledgeable, personable, and knew everyone along the way between Johannesburg and Pilanesberg!

    On a business trip, I only had one day off. This is what I spent it on, and I couldn’t have been happier. My guide and safe driver Lucky was knowledgeable about everything from animals to history, and we had interesting conversation during the 2-hour drives to the park and back (and there as well!). It was too hot a day for the lions or leopards to be visible, but we saw pretty much everything else. A great day!

    We did Pilansberg safari with this amazing company .Darren and his team are excellent . We had a lifetime safari experience at Pilansberg. Campfire were amazing. Our driver Harry was well experienced and friendly. We highly recommend South Africa Adventures Company for all tours and hiking in SA. We will back to SA again for our Drakensberg hike .😍
    Suu you soon all.
