Perfect trip! Perfect guide! At Pilanesberg the landscape is amazing with a sufficient number of animals. Sun City is an interesting place to see.
Although the driver had a breakdown and arrived late to pick us up we had an amazing day, private tour with flexibility and a wonderful tour guide. For the limited time spent in the game reserve we were able to see a large variety of game!
Our tour guide Andrew was the best. He was very knowledgeable on history of Pilanesberg, the animals in the reserve, and Sun City. We took a lot of pictures.
Very beautiful place of natural reserved and amazing place of sun city and lost city.. Five stars to our tour guide who is friendly, and helpful..
The tour was great and me and my husband absolutely LOVED our tour guide, Phinneas. He was very professional and knowledgeable.
Excellent tour and fantastic location for a short Safari

This tour is Half good, half bad. In the morning you have the chance to experience the Pilanesberg reserve, which is really special. We could see a lot of animals and the reserve itself is very beautiful. Just be patient with the restaurant in the Pilanesberg Center : they usually won't have what you want to eat or drink and the food is quite bad. I was Lucky and my order was ok, but my friends fish and chip was terrible.
The second part of the tour is a waste of time (and Money) because this tour is not cheap. When we arrived at SUN CITY we found out that we could only see the external part of the resort and the access to most of the attractions were private to the resort guests. The only thing we could see was a big Garden in the golf course and the backyard of the Valley of Waves. We we're very disappointed. Besides, what we saw was an oldfashioned resort made in the 90's and that nowadays looks like my grandmother's house. It is not Worth going. Try only the first part of the package.
The view of flora and fauna in Pilanesberg was nice. Sun City was fun, but make sure the waiters don't overcharge you. We had a big problem with Mark's behavior as a tour guide. He was frequently checking his mobile phone, including texting while driving. If you like roller coasters, you might like Mark's driving with swerving, dangerous lane changes, and following cars too closely.

Good experience but not value for money
I just saw a few animals in Pilanesberg safari.
Very good driver who also double up as tour guide. He was very keen that we spot all the animals.. He took extra efforts so that we could take good pictures. Thanks to him, we had the best safari
The nature safari itself was worthwhile, but not in a league with Kruger. Sun City was was OK - glad to have done it so we know what it is.
Excellent. The driver was easy to find and very helpful. Our flight was late so were were worried about possible delay - no delay though. He was there. He also was mindful to get the hotel address from us to take us to the right place. After an 18 hour flight, that was much appreciated.

Great day out, really enjoyed the tour.
This trip was amazing. There were seven of us on the trip so we had a small minibus to drive us up there. The driver pointed out lots of interesting things on the drive. We managed to get a whole safari jeep to ourselves other jeeps were full with 25 people on board (I think other people were jealous). We then went off to sun city and spent a few hours in Valley of Waves. This was an extra £12 and we were only there for two hours but we enjoyed it. A very enjoyable day.
I have travelled around the world, bt this tour was the worst tour ever. highly priced for the services delivered. the tour guide and the driver were highly rude and very unfriendly. we got late by half an hour and the tour guide started shouting. on the way he did not even say a word. did not tell us anything about the city. i would not recommend this to anyone. bad bad bad.
This is basically a taxi trip out to the nature reserve and sun city. Quite expensive for what it is... I was given a 6am pick-up time but was not collected until 7.30 - not even an apology. Almost no commentary. The nature reserve is pleasant; sun city is a waste of time! If you have a different opportunity of seeing animals, best to do that instead of this trip.

This was a memorable trip that I have already described many times to the envy of my co-workers. Don't forget to watch the antics of the baby elephants.
For a first time safari adventure it was great. Driver and guide were entertaining and educational. We didn't see lions but saw all other animals even an elephant as close as 2ms from the truck. We were the only ones on the trip so got more than our moneys worth. Sun City is Vegas in the savannah, not our thing so after a quick bite and walk around we headed off. Photos to come....
The tour guide spoke to me only when he felt like it and I was on a private tour. I had to pay double the price because they didn't find a group to add me too which was rediculous. The guide in the park was great and I saw a number of animals including a black rhino, one elephant, giraphs, kudu, wart hogs and many birds. The bad part of the trip was sun city. I am not a gambler and so I wasn't sure what I was supposed to do for the second half of the day. I decided to pay an extra 100 Rand to go into the beach. The trip price did not even include the beach entrance or lunch or any other stops for shopping or water. I didn't know that I should have brought my bathing suit, towel etc so I had to sit in the sun on my coat at the beach.
