Two days ago, my girlfriend and me did the Pilanesberg trip. It was absolutely breathtaking. We saw more then ten elephants (5 of them walked directly to our vehicle), about six giraffes, several hippos, a black rhino, two lions and umpteen of zebras, antelopes rare birds and even a jackal. Thys, our guide was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly and always able to find places where animals can be found.

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.

Hello. Thankyou for the feedback. We are super happy that you enjoyed the Pilanesberg safari. As mentioned it is the best place close to johannesburg for seeing wild animals. Hope to see you soon and thankyou once again for your support

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!!

vale la pena, pero requiere mas tiempo

Todo se cumplio de acuerdo a lo convenido, tuvimos la suerte de ver elefantes, jirafas, rinocerontes blancos, un leon a lo lejos, chacales, perros salvajes (dificiles de divisar), entre otros. Sin embargo se aconseja que como minimo se realice en 2 dias con estadia en alguno de los centros del parque, ya que la distancia y el tiempo de trayecto no hace tan provechosa la experiencia.
