Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    great organization, park is beautiful and to see the animal in its natural habitant is simply staggering. Alex as a driver to the park and back was very chatty and recommended other tours which I taken part in next days. Driver in the park was very friendly and was trying to look for the animal in order for us to have the best experience of the park. Highly recommended.

    An excellent day out. Nathi our guide was knowledgeable and informative, giving us information about each of the stops before we arrived, as well as telling us details about the history of the areas we passed through.
    Really enjoyed all the sites we visited and the lunch in Soweto (own expense) was an amazing buffet of local cuisine.
    Highly recommend.

    If you want to learn about the rich history of the area and the current day lifestyle, do this tour. Very eye opening. Your guide is like talking to a history teacher. They take you places other tours don't go. Highly recommended if you really want to know Johannesburg.

    This experience was breathtaking. I was able to see so many lions and even was in awe watching them during feeding. It was a pleasure to see other animals in addition to the lions.The guide did a great job with directing us on what not to do and stated that our safety and enjoyment are his priorities. I highly recommend this experience.

    We went on safari in Pilanesberg National Park. The arrangements were just as described. The open side safari vehicle gave each passenger a great view. Our driver/guide, Petrus, was excellent! He tried so hard to find leopards and lions. He shared his knowledge of plant and animal life in an engaging way. The lunch break was good. I highly recommend MoAfrica.

    Short version: Everthing was perfect.

    All the transports are well organised and safe. All the people from VIVA Safari are very friendly and try their best, to give you the best experiance. The food was great and the tented lodge at Katekani was awesome - a lot of space, refreshing privat pool and even a AC, if needed.

    At all the stops during Krueger Park or the transfers you are able to pay with credit cards, only at the lodge you will need cash for drinks.
    Yes, the programm is packed full, but this is the best chance to see a lot of the animals. But you can skip parts of programm if wished. The bush walk was short and very interessting and easy to do.
    The first night in Tremisana lodge is outside of Kruger National Park, there for you can do game-drives on sunset and sunrise, you will have the chance to see lots of animals.

    We loved the experiance and our first safari and highly recommend VIVA Safari. There are other plans and camps you can book - for us the 5 days tour and to stay at Katekani was perfect.

    Side node to malaria:
    During this time (end of summer - more rain) malaria risk is higher. We spoke with the employees, the don't face problems.
    We were pre-caution and took the "malaria-medicine" and for sure bug spray.

    This was an absolutely wonderful introduction to a safari. We got picked up at our Johannesburg hotel and driven to Kholiwe lodge. We spent 2 nights there, going on 4 safaris into Kruger National Park.

    Transportation: the drivers to and from the airport were on time, very polite, and accommodating. They answered our questions and stopped when breaks were needed.

    Lodging: the accommodations were great. AC in the bedrooms made it comfortable. Meals were provided and were excellent. The rooms were clean and we felt safe when in the lodge. One day we fed a family of warthogs right at the front door. Another day a couple of silver monkeys came and we fed them. One of us even got the feed a kudu that came up to the lodge.

    Safaris: the guide we had was Aubrey. He was amazing. He was in constant touch over the radio with other drivers to find the places to go in the park. Aubrey often would spot animals hidden in the bushes. We saw lions on each trip into the park. Elephants, including a herd with very young ones. Buffalo, zebras, giraffes, monkeys, baboons, hyenas, wild dogs, impalas, crocodiles, and many species of birds. It was incredible.

    Management: Balanta Tours was in constant touch via WhatsApp. They answered questions we had from before we got picked up through the final day we were there. They offered to help with whatever we needed. Very good customer service.

    Great tour. Highly recommended. The lunch was not good - make sure you tell your guide if you want more on the sandwich than a fried egg and french fries. There are add on options, including burgers, cheese, sausages, etc., but they cost extra. Our guy didn’t let us know that and the egg and fries did not do the trick. If we go back, we would skip the sandwich and opt for lunch T one of the many restaurants in the area.Otherwise this was a really wonderful experience, and we would recommend it to anyone who wants to get an idea of the history and significance of the Soweto Township.

    A really memorable day in Johannesburg with this local company.
    Our guide Tsholo arrived on time and greeted and introduced himself to our party of four. Straight away you could see he was a very friendly guy, neat and tidy and the vehicle was immaculate. We done the Joburg and Soweto tour which was an all day tour with quite a few stops and all the time Tsholo was very passinate with his work and his country. He is very informative, humerous and very knowledgeable about the history, both poitical and industrial in the area.
    The highlight for us was the opportunity to have a short guided tour of one of Soweto's large poor shanty towns. The guide here was a 20 year old young man who explained how they live in these places awaiting an opportunity to be rehoused in a proper dwelling. He also was very friendly and proud of his heritage. To be able to have this rare opportunity of the tour Stephensons company donates a percentage of the cost of our tour ticket to this community to aid in schooling for these children.
    Cold water provided all day as well. We were taken to a local restaurant for lunch, which also was very good.
    We would highly recommend this company for any tours or shuttle services they provide. It isn't a big company and if the rest of the staff are like Tsholo you can't possibly have a bad experience.
