Good communication and reliable

I am very satisfied by the service provided by MoAfrika. Smooth drive to the Pilanesberg park from pick up at the hotel. Good communication from their side. The drive game was a wonderful experience and I will recommend this tour.
Vegetarian light lunch offered in case is your preferred choice ( as it is for me)
Thank you

Ben is a wonderful, talented (speaks 11 languages) and knowledgeable tour operator!

MoAfrika tours is highly recommended!! They communicated well the pickup/drop off times and conveniently transported us to/from the safari. We felt well-taken of and safe throughout the entire adventure! We got to see 3 of the Big 5!! So beautiful and wonderful to see these amazing animals in their natural habitats. Our tour mates were amazing too!!

Soweto Tour

This was an excellent tour!! Five stars for Itu, who did an awesome job. He showed us some of Johannesburg on our way to Soweto. The Soweto tour itself was amazing, learning the historical significance of this township was enlightening. Seeing close up how the people live is interesting. Itu is a great guide and we appreciate everything he did for us. Thanks again, Itu!

Incredible Day at Pilanesberg

Our day at the safari was magical and one that we will remember for the rest of our lives!!!

We went on the full day safari in early May. Our driver picked us up a little before 6 am and we did the rounds to the other hotels to pick up the other folks. Our safari driver was Tumi and he was wonderful. He was informative and friendly, but also didn't talk the whole time, which gave us an opportunity to just enjoy the scenery.

We saw a lot of animals, some very up close and personal, including elephants, zebras, giraffes, hippos, rhinos, impalas, and leopards. We even saw a leopard take down an impala - it was like National Geographic in real life!

A few items that may be helpful:
- It was pretty chilly at the first part of the day. I would bring plenty of layers, or even a blanket for your lap, especially when the driver starts going fast to catch a sighting reported by one of the other guides. A winter hat, ear muffs, or a scarf would have also been helpful.
- We sat in the back row of the truck and it ended up being an ideal spot for seeing the animals. All the seats are good, and it all depends on where the animals are, but we did spot many animals where others couldn't see them as well, and then our guide would adjust the truck so that everyone could see.
- We didn't have binoculars and we still saw plenty. If you have binoculars bring them, but we didn't feel deprived without them.
- A very specific tip: the road can get VERY bumpy. For my fellow busty ladies, plan your undergarments appropriately :)
- The lunch site did have some hungry guinea fowl and sweets loving bees. If anyone is allergic or scared of bees, stay away from the condiments tray and sodas. We were fine until the condiments came out and then the bees found us.
- The truck is roomy, so don't be afraid to pack what you think you may need, like layers, water, snacks, sunscreen.
- My husband and I went together, but commented that our 11 year old daughter may not have enjoyed it since there were quiet spells between animal sightings and a lot of sitting and driving. There were kids on some of the other trucks, but I would say trust your judgement of your kids' tolerance for sitting, waiting, and being quiet during animal viewing.
- We received a text the night before with a confirmed pick up time for our driver.
- With the early morning pick up, the drive out of town is an ideal moment for a nap. We needed dramamine to avoid car sickness, but in hindsight probably would have brought a travel pillow as well.
- At the lunch spot and at end of the day there were some vendors selling carvings and other goods. The ones at the end of the day did a hard sell, so don't approach unless you're ready for that. I got a really beautiful elephant carving to remember the day!

Better than expected

For our first ever safari and it not being a long one, we had a great experience. Tumi was a fantastic guide and very knowledgeable. We didn’t see all the Big 5 but we seen a lot of animals. Out favorite was the leopard walking down the street. If it’s your first ever safari, we highly recommend it. Fun for everyone.

A Most Amazing Safari!

The safari was excellent! Though a somewhat cool and occasionally rainy day, we were treated to a close up experience of an elephant herd (including a big bull pushing down a tree right next to us after briefly coming within 1 meter of the safari vehicle!) Our safari guide Buffalo Soldier was funny and witty but extremely knowledgeable on the park and flora and fauna. Though we only encountered 2 of the big 5, we saw hippos, giraffes, antelope, numerous birds, the aforementioned elephants and a leopard! The transfer driver was also very pleasant and arrived on time. The booking experience was simple and communication was excellent in coordinating our pickup. All in all, I’m so glad we went with you guys and not in our own car as we had considered
