An amazing tour as we had the minibus to ourselves. We saw most of the big 5 - Elephant, hippo, rhino, giraffe, zebra, willdebeast, warthog, buffalo, assorted antelope and birds. Due to recent rains the grass was too long to see any of the big cats.

Our tour guide Jason gave us an awesome tour, we traveled in comfort and had a great lunch. We got to many animals, a lot more that I was expecting to see. The pick up and drop off at our hotel made things easy. Highly recommend this tour.

Not what I expected. After booking I asked Jason if we could do an open vehicle instead of the closed vehicle - which I had seen as an option at one point in time. I did not realize that switching to the open vehicle - which we paid more for - meant this would no longer be a private tour, but rather a group tour. The biggest issue with this was it meant once we arrived at Pilanesberg we waited an hour for the group tour to start. It also made Jason essentially a cab driver from Johannesburg to the Safari and then back. After the 4 hour game drive Jason took us to lunch, which was great, but by the time that was over it was time to drive back to Johannesburg. I was under the impression there would be a second opportunity to go into the park and see wildlife, but that was not the case.
