Mr.Anthony & Mr.Sunny - super responsible, helpful, reliable, 5 star tour operators!

Despite our tour date was fixed a day before, Anthony kept communicating with me, making sure everything is ok.
As I was travelling with a 6 years old child, the safety was the most important part of the travel, he kindly provided some good options and answered my questions so quickly that made us feel very comfortable.
On our last day, we had to wait for our transfer longer than expected as other guests were late, but Anthony offered a free lunch for us while waiting for the transfer arriving. It was very thoughtful of him.
If you have any questions about the safari or where to stay, etc, just ask Anthony. He will guide you to the right best option he has! Highly recommended for sure!

He came pick us up from the JNB hotel. The journey was awesome and amazing with his kind hospitality and interesting talk. On the way to the Pilanesburg Bakbung Lodge, he explained about how locals live when driving. His talk was very interesting and so meaningful, that helped us learn about SA.
Once we entered the park and on the way to the lodge, he stopped the car every moment when he found animals and explained about the animals.
He is not a ranger, but he has massive knowledge about the animals, and it seemed like animals know him well that they do trust him. We saw lots of animals on the way to the lodge.
On our last day, Sunny was the one who came pick us up from the lodge and dropped us in the JNB airport. We were so happy to meet him again!
We had a nice talk on our way back to the airport. For every questions we had, Sunny answered right away. He’s so passionate about his job, we could understand this by talking with him. He is such a kind, interesting, caring and highly experienced person!

Overall, the journey to SA was great thank to Anthony and Sunny who are very responsible, helpful and caring.
We are hoping to go back to SA again, and definitely they will be the one to contact again!!!

Incredibly efficient

As a last minute decision I wanted to plan a safari trip. MoAfrika was one tour company I contacted. I chose them because they were good value for money. I was concerned handing over a lot of money to someone I contacted on line. MoAfrika were just fantastic, they gave me options, they tried to fit in with my requests, they were expedient and organised like a truly well oiled machine. I was a female travelling alone and they arranged pick ups to and from my hotel that were always punctual. I was taken from Joburg to the Lodge I was staying at and back again (2 hr drive). I always felt safe and enjoyed chatting to their drivers too. I would want to use them again should I do another Safari.
Really impressed with their service!

Excellent and very knowledgeable!

We had a wonderful experience at the Pilanesburg safari. Our tour guide was really knowledgeable with all of the animals. We learned so much and saw a lot! Though we didn’t get to see any cats we knew that wasn’t a guarantee. I would highly suggest this safari company!

One of the best experiences in my Life.

The expectations for a safari were relatively high, but the day in the pilanes national park exceeded the expectations.

One of the most beautiful experiences I've ever had.

Pilanesberg with MoAfrica

I did the 3 day Ivory Tree Game Lodge tour through Pilanesberg National Park with MoAfrika and I would definitely recommend these guys. It was so easy to book through Anthony and everything throughout the 3 days ran like clockwork. From being picked up by Sunny (the best Giraffe spotter there ever was), right from my Johannesburg hotel, to the multiple safaris through the park, it was the most awesome experience. Ivory Tree lodge is stunning and Themba, the safari tour guide we had, was amazing. We were so close to giraffes, elephants, zebras and lions, you could almost reach out and touch them. I was a solo traveller and felt so safe with these guys. Don’t go with anyone else. Go with MoAfrika!!

Excellent stay and transfer, a great experience.

I liked the way MoAfrika suggested options according to my interests for the Safari. When I finally decided the tour, the process to book was easy and I always felt confortable with their attention. In the tour, Arnold was such an excelent guide, he was punctual and knew so many about the Big Five, the National Park and the surroundings, MoAfrika was always in contact with me for any question I had. The stay at Kwa Maritane was the Best, the studio was spacious and confortable with great food. Thanks!

Recommended SA Tour Company!

Used this tour company for our first ever trip to SA from the UK. We chose the package that included 3 nights at the fantastic Ivory Tree Game Lodge, in Pilanesberg National Game Reserve. Communication was mainly via Whats App, which was so quick, easy and convenient & we also managed to get a very competitive rate/price. Everything ran smoothly & our drivers/guides were friendly & helpful. Unfortunately the return shared Airport transfer was slightly chaotic & we ended up changing mini-vans off the side of the motorway, However this was mainly due to the other guests (sharing transfer) running late. All in all, I would definitely use this company again & would recommend it to others, especially the regular visiting Virgin & BA Cabin Crew. It was worth every penny & a once in a lifetime trip. Thank you !

Everything went well.

Taken from the hotel in Sandton (Johannesburg) and brought back in the end of the day. Bus driver drive carefully. The safari was very interesting. We faced a lot of animals and our driver also was very motivated to find more animals for us. The trip was very nice! Thanks for the organizers!
