I can’t rave enough about this company, and my guide Willem! From start to finish, the whole experience was amazing. I was in Pretoria on my own for business, and wanted to take a day Safari on the weekend after I finished my business meetings – however all the websites required more than 2 people to book a tour. I emailed Patrick (the owner) of Mmilo Tours, and he got right back to me with a great price on a private tour with a professional guide. I booked it and was really excited.

The day finally came (Nov 17, 2018) and Willem picked me up at my hotel at 3:30 am. Off we went in his super comfortable SUV – we got to Pilanesberg National Park at 5:30 just as the gates were opening, and then spent the better part of the day driving on various roads and tracks looking for animals.

Willem really knows this park! We were able to go on roads that the larger vehicles couldn’t go on, and being in an SUV with glass windows and air conditioning was absolutely wonderful on this hot, very dusty day. We saw zebras, giraffe, rhinos, lions, elephants,water buffalo, birds of all kinds and many many types of horned animals in the antelope and deer family.

Willem is also an accomplished photographer in his own right which made it even more fun as we both snapped pics of the animals in their completely natural habitat.

It was TRULY one of the best days of my life and I HIGHLY recommend this tour company, and Willem, as a guide!
