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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2012

This trip is definitely worth doing. The guide at the parking was the best ever! The parking itself is full of all animals and we saw all ofthem except Leopards. The drive is not that too hard, the jeeps are big and confortable, and the vires to Die for!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2011

This was a fantastic trip boht the guide and driver were very friendly and very knowledgeable. It was well worth the money and with south africa being a third world country - I would recommend a tour than driving it yourself, we had a police stop and I would not have known what to do

Pilanesberg was very good. If you've done safaris in Tanzania and Kenya you may be a little disappointed, but if you have never seen animals like this close-up, it is superb. Sun City is good if a bit odd. The Las Vegas of Africa, and all that implies. Definitely worth doing.

4 star rating: Recommended March 2015

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!
