    Hi there, Thank you for your review, our staff do their utmost to assist with last minute bookings and make sure that all collections and drop off are conducted in the timeless manor. The open vehicles are certainly the best way to travel around the Pilanesberg and a wonderful experience. Sun City is a nice place to visit, however most of our guests in the past have informed us us that 2 or 2 half hours is more than enough time to view the resort. Once again thank you for your feedback and we looking forward to hearing from you again.

    I did a solo tour to SA. The driver picked me up from the hotel on time. He was very friendly. We stopped for something to eat on the way to the Reserve. Once we arrived at the Reserve we were given instructions and turned over to the tour guide. Although we did not see many

    Hi there Dee, Thank you for letting us know what you thought about our services and we are glad that you had a great time in Pilanesberg. It is a pity, that you did not get to see too many Animals as they do roam freely in the park. Hope that you will be back on safari with us again the in near future and we can try find those elusive animals for you. Wish you wonderful travel and and hope to have you back on tour with us in the near future.

    I can fully reccommend this tour. Only you should know that I had to pay 200ZAR extra (which was about 10% of the price) to get an open vehicle not only in the mornig but also in the afternoon. But it was worth. You are sitting very high and have a good overview over the bush.

    Good Day Thank you for highly recommending our Ultimate Pilanesberg day tour. It is true in what you state that the higher open 4x4 vehicle is a great way to travel around the park. We are glad that you found a large variety of animals and had a great day. Our guides and staff do strive to collect all of our guests on time directly from their accommodation in Johannesburg and Pretoria. Thank you for your advice on the vehicles and how it is stated on our itineraries and websites and we will certainly look into making it clearer for all our guests. Wish you wonderful travels.
