"This safari couldn't have been what it was if it wasn't for Alex. His knowledge and experience made the adventure even better than just seeing the animals. We saw all but 2 of the big 5 plus added extras like zebra and giraffe and pumba from lion king. We still talk about how excellent Alex customer service is and you can tell he loves his job and animals."

    After doing some research, I thought that I wanted an open Jeep tour, however, decided on this one because of the great reviews. I couldn’t have been happier with my choice to go with this company! They were very organized and excellent when it came to communication to arrange pick up! Elvis was our driver/tour guide and he was such a delight! So knowledgeable and a great addition to our experience! We saw so many animals such as zebras, giraffes, wildebeests, kudos, rhinos, hippos, warthogs, cheetahs, elephants, and so much more! We had a small group which was nice! We were all able to get a view out the window! I would definitely recommend this to others!

    We had a great experience. Alex was a very nice guy, we had some great sightings and conversations. We got picked up on time, drove to Pilanesberg, saw some amazing wildlife and had a great lunch. Unforgettable, thanks Alex!

    “Truly an awesome experience”

    This safari couldn’t have been what it was if it wasn’t for Alex. His knowledge and experience made the adventure even better than just seeing the animals. We saw all but 2 of the big 5 plus added extras like zebra and giraffe and pumba from lion king. We still talk about how excellent Alex customer service is and you can tell he loves his job and animals.

    It was an amazing safari. Alex was a professional guide and more, we had a lot of fun. I hope to come back in July, the perfect month for a safari in Pilanesberg. Thanks

    What i liked most was the care of the park about the “environment” for the animals, having the roads limited in order to not disturb animals way of life. Also, i`d like to register my special thanks to our guide Alex (from Portugal), who showed great knowledge about the animals’ lifestyle, their diet and their diurnal habits.

  8. Sandra Nix

    The safari of the Pilanesberg Park was good. The driver pick me up promptly at the hotel and dropped off at the hotel around 6pm just as described. The driver/guide is knowledgeable of the animals of the park and quick to point them out. He made an effort to make sure that I would see as many animals as possible. However, I wish there was more context to the guide. For example, a bit of history of the Park, how big is it, how many animals are there, etc. I overall enjoyed myself and felt safe.

  9. Nina Peeters

    “Great Experience”

    Very nice day thanks to my guide Elvis, who is a really nice person. He asks about your preferences for the tour and tries to accomodate them. He is great at spotting animals I would have never seen myself. We saw a lot of animals from very close. We didn’t see lions, leopards or buffalos unfortunately. Elvis gives you a great inside in the life of the animals and even his own life.
