One of the most incredible experiences ever.

I went to the national park of Pilanesberg and stayed at the Black Rhino Game Lodge. We went by our own car from Johannesburg which was just a couple of hours. It was hands down one of the most incredible trips I have ever done. Besides the fact that we got to see all of the big five, and having friendly and incredibly knowledgable tour guides, the lodge we stayed at was amazing. Monkeys were jumping in the trees outside our room in the morning, elephant heards drinking water basically just a couple meters away from the area we had our breakfast buffet. Staff at the lodge were as friendly and helpful as can be. Very welcoming and arranging evening activities for the guests etc. I would love to go again sometime and I can't recommend this enough to anyone.

Knowlegeble, Reliable Considerate

Our"Family of 10 "Trip to South Africa was one of the most enjoyable vacations. Stanley selected and booked accommodationa and tours that fitted our budget and exceeded our expectations. Everything went smoothly and we were afforded good reliable service with attention to detail. The choice of Amakhala Tent Camp was a good one for us. The accommodations, service and hospitality was excellent. The drives through the Reserve were a life time experience. Rob,the Guide, was very knowledgable about the animals as well as vegetation. He was excellent in approaching the animals without affecting their natural life and yet got us excellent proximity and views of lions, rhinos, elephant, cheetahs, etc.
Stanley fulfilled our dreams and his knowledge of South Africa, his attention to detail, his understanding of our needs was much appreciated.

Responsive, Reliable and Reassuring

Stanley Shongwe responded rapidly to our quote request, to our requests for recommendations of a safari experience that would suit our needs, and he stayed in touch with us by whatsapp throughout our time under his itinerary. It was reassuring to know he was on hand to ensure our plans ran smoothly. We'd certainly contact him in the first instance for our next trip to South Africa.

Super responsive and helped us find the perfect safari lodge

I was booking late and there were too many potential options, many of which were already booked. Stanley was super helpful in finding options, dealt with my many questions and requests, and helped us find a perfect small lodge in Balule that we had an amazing time at. I don't think we would have found or chosen this place otherwise!

Stanley was very professional and helpful

We had an amazing stay at Nsala Safari Lodge. We stayed there for 3 nights. The staff were super friendly and made our stay unforgetable. Definitely value for money. We loved watching out for wildlife from the lodge. We spotted an elephant, giraffes, a hyena, buffalo’s, lots of cheeky monkeys and banded mongoose who came for their drinks at the pool. The food was lovely. Our room was beautiful. The early morning and evening bush drives were exciting! Thank you for an amazing safari experience!
