    The safari company picked us up at our hotel in Johannesberg and drove us to Pilansberg National Park, a little over 2 hours away. The car was very nice and the driver was extremely well versed in all aspects of South Africa. The 2 hours flew by because of the interesting conversation.

    At the park, we got into an open-air vehicle to go out and view the animals. Our guide was expert at finding all kinds of game. We saw Rhinos, Hippos, Elephants, Zebras, Giraffes and many more animals. We were lucky enough to observe 2 male elephants fight each other and we were even chased by a huge male elephant for a short distance. The guide was prepared for it and kept us well out of harm's way.

    The safari included an excellent lunch, as well as alcoholic beverages, then we were back into the bush for an afternoon of more incredible animals. Our safari lasted about 7 hours then we were driven back to our hotel, with another 2 hours of lively conversation.

    We spent 9 days in South Africa and this safari was the highlight of the visit.

    A great day trip for those on a tight schedule. We had one day to to see some of the exciting outdoors that South Africa has to offer and this trip did not disappoint. Our guide Willem was fantastic, even sharing some of his own photos with us after the trip. In 6 hours we saw 4 of the big 5 including dozens of elephants and over 20 white rhinos across the reserve. Fantastic trip! Highly recommend.

    Visting Pilanesberg we did not see too many animals. We were either too early or too late. Fortunately we visited earlier the Lion and Rhino park so we were not that disappointed. However, do not expect that the animals will wait for you like in a Zoo. We brought even a joke from this trip: "Do you see the brown rock far away over there? Yes? Well, that’s the lion taking a nap under the tree. Trust my word on that."
    While searching for animals, we fell behind schedule and didn’t have enough time for Sun City. But credit goes to our tour guide, Banele from Stephenson Adventures. He took responsibility for the hour-long delay in Pilanesberg and allowed us an extra hour in Sun City. The place and the Valley of Waves are really great and 2 hours there would never be enough. We got another one and really used this additonal hour for fun. I know that Banele sacrificed his own time and was really late home that day. But this is what Stephenson Adventures do - they go an extra mile for their customers and I really appreciated that.

    After a miscommunication about start time the booking company (Viator), our guide Ben did a wonderful job taking us to Pilanesberg and giving us a wonderful experience. He went out of his way to find great spots for viewing and was very knowledgeable. Despite the late start Ben made up for it with flexibility. The wildlife was magnificent as was the terrain. Pilanesberg surpassed our expectations for wildlife viewing. We appreciated how the tour guides shared information with each other regarding great viewing spots for the day we were there. We dreamed for years of a picture safari experience, and this was a great choice. Elephants, zebras, giraffes, rhino's, hippo's, leopards...the list goes on.

    We both had an absolutely incredible time. The lodge was gorgeous and the food was so tasty. We particularly enjoyed the braii on the Saturday night. We really enjoyed all of the drives and were lucky enough to see lions and a leopard! The rangers were so knowledgeable and we thought the little snack break half way through the drives was a nice touch.

    What a great day visiting Pilansburg Safari with Nhalala Travels. Everything was perfect from booking, transfers, and the Safari experience. This excursion was the highlight of my husband's South Africa trip (l couldn't participate). He saw plenty of game from elephants, wildebeest, leopards, giraffes, lions, rhinos, hippos, and more. Book with NHLALALA TRAVELS!

    As mentioned in my title, we were overall very happy with the experience with just one niggle - the booking mentioned we would have a breakfast at a game reserve after the experience. In the end we were provided with a spread of food for breakfast on a table after the experience in the bush. This was nice, but not entirely what I had expected in comparison to a hot and freshly cooked breakfast and, as a woman, I would have appreciated the breakfast in a lodge with the opportunity to use a bathroom! As it was, we were out from 4.30am and back at our own private lodge around 9.30am so I was unable to use a toilet in this time - something to bear in mind. My partner (male) went behind a bush to relieve himself, as did another male on the hot air balloon trip.

    Now, to go backwards...!

    We were booked on a Wed with a back up date of Thurs. Wed was cancelled due to bad weather - we did not receive a call or email to advise of this directly but when I checked with my lodge after our evening game trip they informed us the hot air balloon people had called them to advise it was cancelled. We were then called by the hot air balloon people in our room the next day and told that Thurs was fully booked and can we do Fri (our last day) instead. This was a little inconvenient as we had to check out that day but we didn't want to miss out so we went ahead.

    We then received whatsapp communication directly to confirm timings etc which was good. Our pick up driver actually arrived 15 mins early but was happy to wait. I wonder if this is intentional to give you time to get ready if you have overslept!?!

    Private drive to the take off place and the staff there were all very good and polite and it felt very safe. Lovely experience but the wind was very gentle so we didn't travel as far as we had expected. Cannot be helped. Experience itself was lovely. Not at all scary like I thought and not bumpy for take off or landing.

    The drive back to our lodge was excellent and was indeed like a mini game drive. Our drive (Sami, I believe his name was) was great and very knowledgable. We got lucky and saw lots of things on the drive including a very close encounter with elephants.

    I would recommend but I think the itinerary needs to be updated to advise re breakfast being something in the bush and toilet facilities not available etc.

    On a business trip, I only had one day off. This is what I spent it on, and I couldn’t have been happier. My guide and safe driver Lucky was knowledgeable about everything from animals to history, and we had interesting conversation during the 2-hour drives to the park and back (and there as well!). It was too hot a day for the lions or leopards to be visible, but we saw pretty much everything else. A great day!

    I booked the 6 hour Safari tour and had a great time! My host, Nhlanhla was punctual and a fountain of knowledge on everything from the vibrant city of Johannesburg to the rich history of South Africa. The safari itself was fun. It was a relaxing day cruising in a jeep, where we saw quite a few elephants, rhinos, and African buffalos. I'd highly recommend it if you'd like a quick get away from the hustle and bustle of Johannesburg!

    The full-day trip (half-day safari) was great! We saw the majority of the Big 5. Having been on a 2-day safari in the past, the shorter safari was exactly what I needed. Our guide to and from the safari, "MK", was terrific. He was knowledgeable, personable, and knew everyone along the way between Johannesburg and Pilanesberg!

    Just over an hour from Pretoria we visited this little gem. Saw the usual number of animals, and fortunate to see 10 Rhinos, including mum and baby you took their time to watch these curious tourists from Australia.
    Hundreds of elephants, including a male, with only one tusk, who made us reverse for quite some distance - which sent our Blood Pressure soaring. In the end we realised that he was just clearing the path on the road so that his herd could go down to the water. Brilliant and exciting. Denise and David Schokman. Perth. Western Australia..
