Great tour operator
5/5

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.
5/5

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.
5/5

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!

Superb
5/5

Great and hassle free service. Every department is interrelated, making communication easy .No enquiry goes un answered,neither are you tossed from one department to another.
Great team in the office and on the field .Loved everything from booking to the actual tour.
Got a reminder about the schedule tour a day before with all the details about pick up time and location ,guess what right on the dot Sonny was Outside our hotel.

I also loved how accommodating they were, one person that we were picking was not able to go alone as her friend missed the connecting flight. It wasn't a bother at all ,they told her they will pick her up following day .No extra charge .l thought that was great, they understand that things don't always go according to plan.

Thabo ,our tour guide was great full of knowledge, l didn't know that the Zebra is black with white stripes

Excellent Safari with MoAfrika Tours
4/5

Our safari experience with MoAfrika was truly excellent. It was a fantastic journey from the moment we were picked up at the O.R. Tambo bus station to the very end. We had a great deal of fun throughout the trip.

On the second day of our safari, we did wish that the 4x4 jeep driver had advised us to return to our rooms and change into long pants and long-sleeve shirts. The day turned out to be extremely windy and cold, and such a suggestion would have been greatly appreciated. I genuinely thought I might develop hypothermia; it was that cold. Although we were provided with ponchos, they weren't quite enough to keep us warm.

Aside from that, the lodge, the service, and the staff were all excellent. And I must mention that the food at Kruger Adventure Lodge was exceptional.

Best first Safari
5/5

Overall I had a great experience for my first safari. The booking process was very easy and someone texted me the night before confirming the pickup time. The driver was very on time and very pleasant. We started our journey in a smaller van and then joined other visitors and took a bigger bus to the park. Both vehicles had AC and were comfortable for the ~3 hr drive.
At the park we met the ranger Joseph who was very friendly, fun, and knowledgeable. He always found the best stop position for us to see the animals and gave us good info about them. He also was on radio with other rangers to communicate about the spots where there were interesting animals. We saw elephants, giraffes, rhinos, hippos, alligators, baboons, different antelopes, zebras, and a lion. Joseph searched for a leopard, but they are hard to find. The lunch break was also very good and the food was good.
The whole trip was very well planned and on time.
