This was the perfect outing for the traveler who only has one day to commit to a safari. The hotel pickup and drop off could not have been more convenient. We had a rainy morning so our guide was not optimistic that we would see many animals, especially lions. Luck was with us though because we saw 4 lions that day Ali g with an elephant, a rhino, two giraffes, 3 cheetahs and several zebras and wildebeests. Lunch was adequate and we had excellent drivers. Overall, I feel it was a good value. I also really appreciated that they provided us with rain ponchos because I was not preppy for rain.
The tour was well organised. Worth a half day trip. You get a local tour guide to walk a bit inside Soweto which is a great expensive and gives you a chance to interact with the locals. There was no WiFi on the minivan as indicated but that gave us a chance to concentrate on the guide and appreciate the stops uninterrupted. We covered all the historic stops and took time to take them in.
From booking to getting dropped off at the end of the day the guide, Alex, was personable, friendly and incredibly knowledgable. I really don’t know what else could’ve been done to improve the experience. He switches languages with ease making sure everyone in the multinational group was kept informed. Thanks again Alex
Fantastic day with the balance between the historical sites of Pretoria & the amazing animals at the lion park. My guide Thabang from MoAfrika Tours was exceptional and imparted his knowledge of Pretoria & South Africa. Well organised. Pick up & drop off to motel in Pretoria. Comfortable vehicle with wifi.
Really great park! The rangers are so knowledgeable- we had Dusty and she was great!!
