Don't visit South Africa without contacting Mmilo Tours first!

Patrick and his team are top notch professionals, quick to respond, and willing to customize recommendations to meet your preferences and schedule. I recommend him and Mmilo Tours if you want to eliminate the guess work out of planning travel, hotels, car rentals, transfers, safaris and even driving tours. He helped in all aspects, and even arranged for a day-long tour of Jo'berg and Soweto for our family of four.

Every place he recommended was as advertised, or better. Please, save yourself hours of headaches and trust Patrick. He won't let you down.

These guys are the best and go the extra mile - and very reasonable!

We had a 24+ hour layover at Johannesburg Airport and wanted to go on a safari. Did not have a clue on how to book one but thankfully we found safaribookings. Mmilo was one of the few companies that was willing to accommodate a short notice request for a private guide and vehicle who took us on a daytime-to-dusk safari. Willem picked us up at our hotel and provided great historical commentary during the 2.5 hour ride from JNB to Pilanesburg national park. His intimate knowledge of the park and the animal habits allowed us to see no less than 15 species including elephants, giraffes, rhinos, gazelles, wildebeasts, a host of birds and even a leopard. We enjoyed a delicious lunch al fresco at a park lodge, and took many close-up photos of the animals. The tour ended when the park closed at dusk and we were returned to our hotel with door-to-door service The price was very reasonable for a private tour and a far superior experience to the massive buses that we saw roaming the park roads. These guys are fantastic and very accommodating.

The Pilanesburg Sunrise Safari - a fantastic day out.

Organisation was first class and our guide, Willem, was friendly, knowledgeable and made sure we had a day out to remember. Highly recommended.

Ntsimane displayed every characteristic of an exceptional guide and South African gentleman.

Patrick reached out to me 3 days before our outing to confirm time and offer additional activities. This was a pleasant surprise and appreciated. Ntsimane is an awesome guide! We had a wonderful time with him and he made Tandra's birthday outing better than expected. He was very accommodating as well. We received South African history and present day information from him. A business is only as good as the employees and the business was represented exponentially well by Ntsimane.

Sibu is the best guide!!

Everything was very good! The safari, the hotel, and especially our guide. The price is high still. But we spend a very nice time!

An excellent and professional service and someone who we will use again

Mmilo Tours made the process of organising our special trip very easy and catered for our every wish to make our holiday a visit of a lifetime. Our guide, Norman, answered all our questions and more and we only wish that we could have stayed longer but we will certainly be returning in 2019.

Willem Heckroodt amazing tour guide, very knowledgeable, made sure we saw many animals. Awesome!

Was very well done. Driver was knowledgeable and knew the best places to look. Was prompt to pick up and didn't watch the clock which was nice. We were given clear directions on pickup and the events of the day. Even though we had rain in the morning, it was an amazing trip! Thanks to Willem, our driver for the day!

Our guide Willem provided transportation to and from Lukimbi Lodge.

My husband had 2 weeks notice that he would be traveling to South Africa for work. We decided to extend the trip for vacation. Mmilo Tours responded within 24 hours to my inquiries. The information they provided helped us in our decision to chose Lukimbi Lodge for a 4 day/ 3night safari. Lukimbi Lodge exceeded our expectations! All of the staff at Lukimbi Lodge went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable, safe, and exciting. We saw the Big 5 and so much more. Our Guide Werner is very skilled and knowledgeable about the wildlife and surroundings. He is an asset to the organization! The rest of the staff, including Tracker KK, Kernel, Empress, Meaghan, and Natalie (I believe that is her name, she greeted us upon arrival) and all of the guides who helped to make happy hour fun, made our stay fun and comfortable. We loved our chalet with a private pool which we used on the hot afternoons. The food was good. The chalet was clean, and made up twice daily. Guide Willem provided transportation to and from Lukimbi Lodge. He was very prompt and shared his extensive knowledge of the area as we travelled to Lukimbi Lodge. On our return trip to OR Tambo International Airport Willem took us on a scenic route through mountain passes, waterfalls, and lookouts. It was beautiful. I would highly recommend Mmilo Tours and especially Lukimbi Lodge!

Excellent organization. Patrick and Jamies take care of you at any stage!

Communication was great. Patrick and Jamie were always there for us, by phone, emails and even Whatsapp. Service was excellent and the safari was just perfect! We saw the Big 5 twice in 2 days!
