This was the first safari for me and my friends and Mmilo and our guide, Willem, did not disappoint. Service was for our sunrise safari was professional-- it was seamless and prompt. As for the safari experience itself, Willem was extremely knowledgeable about the park, its animals and the vegetation. We are a curious group, and he was able to answer all of our questions thoroughly. Willem is patient; he would slow down or back up to ensure that we got a chance to thoroughly observe the animals, and was very respectful of the animals. On the other hand,we witnessed guides from other companies speeding through the experience in an effort to catch the next animal. We were able to see three of the Big 5 during our one-day experience. And lunch at Bakubung Lodge was wonderful. Willem also took pictures throughout our day, which he shared with us. The lodge is beautiful, and modern yet cozy. The scenery, service, food and drinks were great. My only regret is that we didn't have time for a multi-day safari. I'll definitely be backand will plan accordingly!

Great Pilanesberg experience

We decided at very short notice to spend the day before our flight out at Pilanesberg reserve. It turned out to be a great decision - made possible by a great tour operator, Mmilo! Willem was a great and very knowledgable guide and we had a great time with him. Everything went smoothly from pickup at the hotel to drop-off at the airport, a great experience in the reserve seeing and being pointed out lots of different animals, a yummie lunch at a lodge - and a nice goodie on top: being sent a link to view the pictures Willem took on that day with his professional equipment.
Definitely recommended!

Great day tour with Willem

We spent a great day with Willem. He picked us up early morning at our hotel and took us to the Lion's park. Don't expect raging lions in the wilderness over there as they are looked after (so they spend most of their time sleeping) but playing with lion cubs and cheetahs de-fi-ni-te-ly make it worth it. We then went to visit a cave nearby, which has nothing more nothing less than other big caves you may have visited before. We also had lunch there. Perhaps taking a tour of Soweto would make the day more special. But anyhow Willem was very friendly, took good care of us and was talkative about SA in general, which is another great way to learn about the country. He was flexible and patient, thank you! Definitely recommend him and Mmilo tours!

Flash vacation in South Africa

We only had five full days to explore South Africa, and so we booked a tour with Williem for two of those days. I am so glad that we did, we were able to see so much, and the tour really made the country come alive for us. A lot of little things, like Williem bringing binocilars for us to use, and sending his proffesional-grade photos after the tour etc, totaled up to make the trip extra special. I would recomend this tour to anyone that can spend any amount of time in South Africa.

Beyond All Expectations

We had a somewhat customized tour, and it was absolutely fabulous. Because our time was limited with departing flights, Mmilo arranged a customized tour in a minibus where we joined an open top safari vehicle for three hours in the middle. It was phenomenal. We left our hotel at 3:30am and arrived at Pilanesberg by sunrise. In the minibus, our guide Sibusiso gave us a very personalized tour. He was highly educated and taught us about the animals patterns and behavior. By 9:30am we felt like we had seen almost everything (elephants, giraffes, zebras, hippos, lions, and many varieties of antelope). We switched to the open top vehicle at 9:30am and spent another three hours touring the reserve. These vehicle network over radios, so the drivers know where the activity and rare sightings are in the park. They got us VERY close to the wildlife. The open top tour was less educational but the photo opps from it were worth the trip. At the end of the open top trip we had a lunch and were driven comfortably back to the JNB airport by 3:30pm for our evening flights. This was a 5 Star experience!

Pilanesberg Day Safari

I booked a 1-day guided tour to the Pilanesberg National Park through Mmilo Tours. It was very easy to deal with Mmilo Tours via their website and email. Their communication with me was excellent. The tour package included a car with driver/guide. Everything went very smoothly. The guide was excellent and the tour was great. I have been to South Africa seven times (both business and holiday) and I wouldn't hesitate to do business with Mmilo again in the future.

Exceptional 4 day Safari and Panorama Route Tour

We have booked a 4 day Kruger National Park Safari including Panorama Route for our family and it was exceptional.
Norman was flawless in organizing the tour and answering all our questions.
At the park, sunrise and sunset drives were carried by the knowledgeable staff and at Panorama Route, the driver had an excelent job showing us all the scenic spots.
We would definitely recomend this tour!

Fantastic tour, very efficient, organised and attentive to details.

Amazing safari with Mmilo Tours. Everything worked like clockwork! All the guided tours, steam train dinner, sunset dinner cruise on the Zambezi, game drives, were all fantastic.
Both the hotels, the Cresta Spray View and Hwange Safari Lodge, were brilliant.
The views over the water holes from Hwange Lodge were incredible, elephants, zebra, impala, baboons, etc. all just outside!
Two staff in particular went out of their way to provide an amazing service:
-Steve from Africa Travel & Tours in Victoria Falls looked after us very well, always on hand to make sure every pick-up, transfer etc. went to plan and took us on the guided tour of the falls.
-Lazarus from Hwange Safari Lodge who took us on mainly private game drives. He was extremely knowledgeable and knew where to look for so many animals.
Both were brilliant.
Would highly recommend this tour.

Punctual and Passionate about Johannesburg and extremely knowledgeable about history and culture.

A fantastic tour! We were searching for something unique to do to celebrate my wife's birthday, so we booked the Elephant/Monkey Sanctuary Tour. And folks, we found it here! The experience was UNFORGETTABLE!! We not only got to view the elephants and monkeys. We got to interact with them by feeding them and walking with them. We were even allowed to touch the elephants. Priceless!

Anton was our guide, and he was phenomenal! His knowledge and passion for Johannesburg and the surrounding areas heightened our experience beyond our expectations. He enlightened us with historical and cultural information and was happy to answer all of our questions. He even assisted us in finding great lunch venues and African markets. He also recommended other things to do/ see during the tour. Because Anton was such an excellent guide, we ended up booking the Johannesburg/Soweto tour to complete our stay: definitely, a must before you leave SA!

Very professional!

From start to finish Mmilo Tours were fantastic! We had private transfers due to our flight times, and Norman from Mmilo Tours was extremely accommodating, picking us up from the airport and taking us over to Kruger. Norman was very knowledgable and was able to tell us so much not only about our trip to Kruger, but about everywhere we were going in SA. We would 100% recommend, very safe and reliable.
