Very good Pilanesberg day tour
Booked a day tour from Johannesburg to Pilanesberg couple of days before over Tripadvisor, received the confirmation of the time of pickup over Whatsapp the evening before the tour.
Pickup was on time, and it took another hour to pick up all the other people around the city as I was the first on the way. So for me it was about 4 hours drive to Pilanesberg instead of the 2.5 hours indicated on the Itinerary, just keep that in mind.
Trip to Pilanesberg was simple, one stop halfway there.
Game drives at 09:30 and 13:30 were quite nice, we didn't see that many animals but it was just too hot so no surprises there. We did get to see a leopard chasing a rabbit so that is a very rare sighting right there. Overall I was happy with the drives, although the ones at 06:00 offer much more, naturally.
Launch at the park was OK, beef or chicken burger and a drink, nothing fancy, but not bad.
And then the drive back with one short stop just outside Pilanesberg. I was picked up at 5:30, dropped off at 19:00 at Eastgate.
It was a nice experience, the only complaint I have it that in the morning after picking me up, the driver was driving quite fast and at one point hit a pothole which had me flying for a couple of seconds. Did not like the landing...
If you don't have the option of driving or wanting to stay the night before somewhere near Pilanesberg, this tour is definitely a very good option.

MoAfrika Tours LLV was good value for the money.
Pick-up at hotel in Johannesburg was on time: 05:15 by Arnold, a safe driver.
Other travelers joined the tour in Pretoria.
We transferred to a safari vehicles at Pilanesberg park. Our park guide/driver Martin was very knowledgeable about flora/fauna.
He assisted in spotting wildlife, positioning the vehicle for best view, and helped with photography when requested.

Great tour operator
I did a safari to Pilanesberg Park. Initially, the driver arrived 1h late because the previous one had had an issue, but the company was easy to communicate with and update me on the next pickup time. Once at Pilaneseberg (a 2h30 scenic drive from Sandton) , the rangers greeted and the transition was well organized. We got to see many elephants, a rhino, a few hippos and sleeping lions. The trip was absolutely brilliant, and really good value for money, considering how far the Park is to Joburg, that lunch was included, and that we saw 3 of the Big 5.
Would recommend any day!

Desmond was an amazing guide! He made it a great experience.
This was a great experience! We were picked up from our hotel and it took about 3 hours to get to the park. We toured the park for 3 hours, had an hour lunch break and toured for another 2 hours. All together the experience was 12 hours. It was a great experience that I highly recommend to everyone! We saw tons of animals and only missed the big cats. We’re knew where some were and tried to see them, but due to the heat and tall grass we couldn’t see them from the distance we were. Amazing experiences with the elephants and zebras. We also saw crocodiles, giraffes, hippos, impalas, rhinos, wildebeests, and many birds. Desmond was amazing and tried very hard to get us close to each breed we came across. Don’t hesitate to book this trip!

Anold was prompt, courteous and professional. He was able to navigate a route issue on the fly.
We loved this tour. Our driver (Anold) got us to the park safely and was open and helpful. We stopped about an hour after leaving Pretoria for food/drinks/bathroom. When we got to the park, the park guides were friendly and knowledgeable. You could tell that they wanted you to see everything you could and shared facts about the plants and animals. We saw elephants, giraffes, zebras, wildebeest, impala, a warthog, kudu, crocodiles, rhinos, hippos, and a lioness. There were also lots of neat birds. Our guide tried to get us as close to the animals as was safe (and for many of them, that was within about 15 feet!) I’d recommend bringing a water bottle and dressing in layers as the morning can be chilly. There was also a decent breeze when driving in the open vehicle (as is expected). I occasionally wished I had brought binoculars, but you really got close enough to the animals that they aren’t needed. I used a 55-230mm zoom lens and that was really all the more of a zoom that was needed because of the size of the animals. Lunch was served at an open air restaurant and was tasty. The trip was well worth the cost and I’d recommend!
