Must do if you are in Sun City! Best value for money. 3 hours, great tour and we saw a lot of wild animals. Great service (drink and chips), good truck great host Evert! I give it more then 5 stars! Very professional! Thank you so much for this fantastic memories.
This was my first trip to Africa and on my adventure list of things to do. Had the best time ever! I would do this all over again! Everyone must do a game drive, (or 5), with Nikki. Best tour guide ever. She went above and beyond to get us to the best locations to see the beautiful wildlife. Please go see Khumo with Mankwe Game Trackers thru Sun City, she will hook you up. And if you decide to do a Bush Walk, you must ask for Darren. He was very knowledgeable and led us on the path for the lions and white rhinos, all while keeping our safety number 1. I also recommend doing the hot air balloon ride over the Pilanesburg national park. It was breathtaking! My husband and I ended up doing about 5 game drives, 1 bush walk, and 1 hot air balloon ride thru the Pilanesburg national park, all within 8 days. Every time we went out, there were always something new to see and experience, including rhinos, elephants, giraffes, and even the lions that came up close to our vehicle. You will not be disappointed!
Excellent. Ask for Guide Nicki. Private drives were our favorite. Time for everything we wanted. Go to counter and ask for Khumo. She will help you out.
Hot air balloon ride over Pilanesberg game reserve was a once in a lifetime experience! They were extremely accommodating and replied very fast to any query! I wouldn't have wanted any other organizer to accompany this special event!
Early morning game drive with Darren. He was so informative. Loved every minute of it. I have been on both evening and morning drives with this company and recommend both.
