Perfect
5/5

Patrick from Mmilo Tours organized for us a six days tour starting with the cradle of humanity and then moving towards the Kruger Park for a several day's Safari. Our guide was Anton Joubert.

Patrick organized the trip brilliantly. He was very keen to listen to our wishes and last-minute changes. Our daughter caught Corona the day before departure, but Patrick rearranged all the accommodations free of charge. As a result, we postponed the trip, and on the second attempt, everything went smoothly.

Anton was there to pick us up at the airport and took terrific care of us. His car is perfectly maintained and clean, and he is very knowledgeable. He took us through the Panorama route and entertained us with a lot of information on the culture and economy of South Africa. He always ensured we were on time and could enjoy each sight the best way possible.

We stayed at the Mjejane Lodge for the Safari, which was fantastic. The food was delicious, the room very spacious, and the guides for the Safari managed to show us all the big five plus lots of other things. We all enjoyed our time there.

If you are considering booking a Safari in South Africa, Mmilo Tours is the way to go. Again, you are in good hands with Patrick.

PS: On the first night, we stayed in Dullstroom at the Highlander. This place was great, and the food was exquisite.

A great experience - highly recommended!
5/5

The booking with Mmilo Tours went quickly, smoothly and very accommodating, even under difficult conditions because of Corona. We were happily surprised. We enjoyed the private tour with Tim over the Panorama Route and through the Kruger National Park very much. We learned a lot about South Africa and its people from him, also besides the touristic program. Unfortunately we could not visit all the stops on the route because of the weather, but the drive through the Kruger NP with many animals was a real experience. We spent the first night at Perry's Bridge Hollow Boutique Hotel, very nice. Then safari and three nights at Mjejane River Lodge, somewhat mixed. The location on the river is great. The guides showed and explained a lot to us, but the staff at the lodge was a bit gruff. Good thing we got a free upgrade to superior rooms, I would recommend to book this room category. Overall it was an exciting and educational tour. Many thanks to Patrick for organizing it and to Tim for his very personal, friendly and also patient guide. We would do it again anytime.

“Accommodating and Exceptional.”
5/5

My friends (6 of us) and I toured South Africa and visited Kruger National Park with a lot of help from Patrick of Mmilo Tours. He is an excellent organizer and went the extra mile to accommodate all of our requests. Our initial tour dates had to be changed due to Covid-19 but Patrick rearranged the entire trip at a very nominal service charge. He helped us with all the internal flight bookings, boarding etc. I was very pleased to meet him in person and thanked him for his excellent service. Would recommend Mmilo Tours to anyone planning to visit South Africa.

Henry Zeiler, our guide, is very knowledgeable and informative about facts not just pertaining to the safari but also about the past and present state of affairs of South Africa. He filled us in on a lot about the culture and heritage of the South African communities. He went the extra mile to make sure that we were at ease and able to accomplish our goals - and in my case, it was to get some good pictures of the wild animals. We were lucky to see four of the Big Five animals. Henry’s knowledge of the animals, their habitats, and behaviors is really good. He has a very keen eye and was able to spot a lot of animals for us. I/we enjoyed his company and would happily recommend him, as a guide, to anyone interested in getting a taste of this great experience. It was a happy ending for everyone. Be safe and God bless.

Fantastic service and excellent Tour
5/5

We are just back from an incredible few days in Pilanesberg booked via MMilo Tours, and I cannot recommend them enough.
From the time of enquiry Patrick was very responsive and detailed, and personalised the packages he had to meet our requirements, with a very short notice (it was a last minute trip planned with only a couple of weeks of advance).
We had an issue with our flight into JNB on the day of departure and had to make some tweaks to the plan - Patrick was extremely helpful and made it very easy to adjust the trip, making it so much less stressful for us.
Norman was our guide - extremely professional, knowledgeable and a very pleasant company. He was easy to contact and responsive before and during our stay, making the all experience seamless and worries-free.
The safari lodge MMilo proposed to us as an alternative to the one we enquired for - which was fully booked - was also excellent (Tshukudu Bush Lodge).

Amazing Experience with Patrick, Norman and Mmilo Tours
5/5

We have just returned from an excellent two night, three day safari in the Mjejane River Lodge organised by Mmilo Tours - and cannot recommend this company enough.

We were picked up and dropped off by Norman. He is an excellent tour guide who told us a lot of interesting stories about the history of South Africa and the region we were travelling through. He was extremely informative and answered all of our questions. Both Patrick and Norman were excellent at communicating our itinerary and gave us plenty of helpful tips and advice. 5/5 - we can't wait to come back!

Lovely day tour in Eswatini!!
5/5

I contacted Mmilo Tours to organize a day tour of Eswatini. Patrick was very responsive when reaching out to them, he provided me with an itinerary within a few days. He answered every question in a timely manner. He also provided a secured link for payment, which was highly appreciated.

The tour itself was given by Mr. Lucky Mavuso, an experienced Swati tour guide. Lucky was an outstanding guide. He really went above and beyond to make me discover his culture.

I am very satisfied with my day trip and would recommend contacting Mmilo Tours and/or Lucky if you have a tour to organize in Southern Africa.

Excellent
5/5

We chose to do the Sunrise Safari at Pilanesberg National Park with Mmilo tours - the organisation was seamless from start to finish. Our guide Willem was excellent - he was incredibly knowledgeable and made sure our day was as special as it should be. The park itself was beautiful. In our six hour safari we saw rhinos, giraffes, zebras, hippos and elephants - sadly no big cats, but it gives us a reason to go back. We finished up with a lovely long lunch at Bakubung Bush Lodge which is included in the Sunrise Safari package, before heading back to Johannesburg. Would highly recommend Mmilo tours to anyone looking for a great Safari experience.
