A great option if you don't have time or ability to make it to Kruger but want to see rhino, elephant, giraffe, zebra, and impala. Amazing how close they were sometimes; so different seeing them in their natural setting than in a zoo. Beautiful national park, lots of animals (no guarantee of course but lots of animals = more potential for sightings); same style (though not scale) of safari you'd get at the bigger parks but closer to Jo'burg. Overall great value, good alternative.
My Safari experience was amazing. Although we only saw 4 of 5 of the Big 5, I was glad not the see the lions ready to attack other animals Just not my thing. It was great seeing the animals up close walk by the vehicle. The views of park are amazing as well. Our tour guide gave us top notch information about all the animals and other visitors would let our tour guide know where different animals were located. Lunch was fun with animals in view from the restaurant. Overall, this is a must do on your trip.
We really enjoyed our day-long safari at Pilanesberg. Our guide and driver were both great and fun to be around. The trip got off to a bad start when we were delayed by a traffic accident in Johannesberg and arrived at the park about an hour later than anticipated. Darren, our guide, handled the situation well and entertained us with bad jokes during the journey. The delay became a blessing as our tour included just one other visitor plus my wife and me. We saw amazing country and a great range of animals, including cheetahs, a leopard, rhinos and even a lion's tail. We could not have had a more enjoyable day or better company than Darren and John.
I had an absolutely fabulous day. I can't rate Soul Adventure enough. From the moment I was picked up at 5.45am, to the moment I said goodbye at 8.30pm I felt nothing too much trouble. My guide for the day Roger, was not only an extremely knowledgeable guide, he was excellent and fun company. Thanks!!
Awesome day. Darren was an excellent guide, went above and beyond to make everyone comfortable and relaxed. Very informed. Beautiful scenery and great opportunity to see the animals in the wild. Highly recommend this tour, worth every penny.
