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!

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!!

Good value, great communication and expert guides - recommended!

I was looking at quite short notice to book a two-day safari to Pilanesberg, and MoAfrika were incredible. They were very responsive via live chat for me (better than submitting a formal enquiry). They put together a package that was more competitive/better value than other companies I had been in touch with, and were very friendly and personal throughout. Communication was great - the main coordinator kept checking in to make sure everything was smooth, and the driver for transfer was also in touch when needed.
The tour was accurate to the package and everything went smoothly. My driver (Sunny) was fantastic - pick up was exactly on time and driving was smooth. He was friendly and very knowledgable - we were able to find lots of animals during the closed bus drive through the park! The lodge and safaris were all smooth and well coordinated with the transfers.
Overall, I had a great time - MoAfrika were fantastic for communication and great for price, especially considering I was organising this essentially the day beforehand! The logistics were all perfectly smooth and the tours were expertly guided. Very happy with their work!

Wonderful safari experience

We took the 4 day 3 night tour with MoAfrika, staying one night at Tremisana and 2 nights in Marc’s treehouse lodge. It was overall an incredible first time safari experience! Safari guides were extremely knowledgeable. All the staff were friendly and punctual when it came to our day to day itineraries. The home cooked meals were delicious (and we really appreciated them accommodating our dietary restrictions). Communication before the safari was done via WhatsApp and all our questions and concerns were answered very promptly. This experience highly exceeded our expectations! Highly recommend!

Moafrika is well organized and has very knowledgeable guides

Communication with the tour operator was effective and quick. The pick up and drop off at the hotel reduced any stress of meeting for the tour. Our safari guide (Ben) was very knowledgeable and did a great job helping us find animals in their natural habitat. This one day tour is good value and I would highly recommend it.

This tour was perfect! The driver picked me up as directed and we went straight to Pilanesberg. The park was incredible and we saw so many animals.

Perfect Tour and Tour Host

From the the time we were picked up from the hotel to the time we were dropped back, we were in safe and friendly hands. Expertly driven to the park, and then expertly taken on a most fantastic safari in the beautifully hilly Pilanesburg National Park. The whole day was well setup and ran smoothly.

My wife and I were so impressed with Mo Afrika that we plan to bring the rest of the family over to do this particular tour next year!
