    We were unsure if a day safari would let us see much as it is the height of the day that we would be driving looking for animals. However, on a very hot day we saw more than i thought we would - loads of elephants, zebras, wilderbeasts, springboks, cheetahs. We only had a few hours to be able to experience any of the 'safari' experience available in SA and this was a fantastic way of doing it in limited time.

    The tour was an amazing introduction into the recent history of social, economic and political upheaval in South Africa. From Constitution Hill, site of a former prison and current seat of the Constitutional Court; to the Apartheid Museum, documenting the history of national separatism, to a drive-through tour of Soweto, the focal point of anti-apartheid protest, including a visit to the 1976 Hector Pieterson shooting site, where protest began and a visit to Nelson Mandela's home in Soweto.

    In part self-guided, in part docent-led, during the drive and at or stops, our tour guide Clement pointed out sites of historical significance and provided color (with brutal honesty) on local and national issues. He and his partner Nathi, our tour van driver, contributed greatly to our day. To complete the day, we enjoyed a buffet dinner of local food at a Soweto restaurant.

    Solly, the tour operator, was polite and responsive to questions. Pickup and dropoff were at local hotels. In all, it was great experience for a first-time visitor; I highly recommend this tour.

    Great experience!! Arnold is an excellent driver and guide. We were more than a couple of hours in the Game reserve and we were able to see 3 out of the Big 5 (white rhino, lion and elephant) and also other great animals such as Hipo, Impala, Black Wildebeest and zebra.

    I would definitely book with them again.

    Thanks!!

    This tour is the best way to see as much of Johannesburg as possible in a day. Our guide, Nasypho (apologies if I misspelled her name), was an absolute delight! We felt like we were lifelong friends by the end of the day. We stopped at Nelson Mandela's homes before and after his incarceration, Constitution Hill, the Apartheid Museum, and Soweto. We had lunch in Soweto in a restaurant Nasypho recommended. It was absolutely delicious. If you don't have a lot of time in Johannesburg this tour is a must.

    As we had a 10+ hour layover at O.R Tambo, we contacted Mhlanganisi Tours to see what was possible. They were super responsive and flexible, and were able to take the Joburg and Soweto tour with us on a last minute notice.

    Pastor came to pick us up at the airport and took us around Soweto and Johannesburg for the whole afternoon. He was very knowledgeable and knew loads about the different sights we visited. We experience the tour as authentic and it gave us a good idea of what Johannesburg and Soweto are like. It opened our eyes and we only want to go see more of the city after this tour!

    Our guide Bheki was amazing. He picked us up at our hotel in Johannesburg and we had a lovely conversation on the long drive to Kruger National Park. While Bheki's primary expertise is on the animals and plants, his broad knowledge of his nation was fun to learn from. His generous sharing about his own life and community added greatly to our education about South Africa and its remarkable journey out of apartheid. In the park, Bheki was truly in his element, working hard to give us ample opportunity to see the many animals and birds which live there. His knowledge about their behavior and ways of interacting added so much to our experience. Although we saw dozens of different species, Bheki was disappointed that he wasn't able to share any of the park's cats with us. He made our experience fabulous. The cottages in the national park were a lovely place to stay between safari drives.

    We absolutely loved our Pilanesburg Safari. From the moment we landed at JNB to be picked up from the airport to drop off after the experience, everything was fantastic. We were welcomed with juice upon arrival at the Black Rhino Lodge, our room was clean, spacious, and peaceful, and the hospitality was top notch. Our driver was so nice and knowledgeable and our favorite part was getting to see a lioness hunt and kill a zebra right in front of our eyes. Totally unforgettable! We definitely recommend this experience to anyone thinking about booking.

    We really enjoyed the Pretoria tour. Our guides were very knowledgeable and happy to answer questions. It’s very informative and well worth it. Would definitely recommend for anyone who wants a whistle stop tour of Pretoria!

    My mom and I went on the safari yesterday. Solly conducted our safari tour and the experience was amazing! We had a nice two hour drive from Joburg (both ways) and it was peaceful. Solly was knowledgeable and patient. The safari tour was fun, entertaining and lunch was provided. Be prepared to spare a few hours. I suggest you do this tour when visiting Joburg.

    We were contacted by Philipians de night before and were informed that Sterkfontein was closed due to weather beacause of the rain. We really wanted to go to Maropeng and were adviced to compement Witherspoon a visitar to Soweto or Lesedi Cultural Village. Unfortunately there was a misunderstanding with the pick up time (8am) and we decided to use the time to exchange currency, it took longer than we thought it would, they arrived at 8:45 and left at 9 because of us.

    Our guide, Nathi, was very nice. And made sure we were happy and we undestood everything.

    We only had 40 minutes in Maropeng so we tried our best. The place is worth the visit and very interisting if you are into natural history and all tha stuff.

    Thebang is an excellent tour guide and we had a fantastic time with him! He personalized the tour based on our interests, and was extremely knowledgeable about culture, history, geography, politics...and answered all of our many questions. He was very informative and personable - we had a lot of fun and learned so much. Definitely a highlight of our visit to South Africa! - Cheesegirl & Anthony :)

    What an amazing experience!! Once in a lifetime, so pleased that we chose Viva Safari. We did the 5 day Tremisana Lodge safari, thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it!
    The staff were very welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable, making sure that every safari we did was unforgettable.
    Tremisana Lodge itself is very clean and well maintained, the meals (thanks mama) were plentiful and delicious.
    Although all the staff were brilliant, special mention to Lucky, Smiley and mama.
    Highly recommend Viva Safari's
