Excellent tour and fantastic location for a short SafariReviewed by: JAIRO ANDRES B, September 2013
Good experience but not value for moneyReviewed by: David C, Malaysia, August 2013
This tour is Half good, half bad. In the morning you have the chance to experience the Pilanesberg reserve, which is really special. We could see a lot of animals and the reserve itself is very beautiful. Just be patient with the restaurant in the Pilanesberg Center : they usually won't have what you want to eat or drink and the food is quite bad. I was Lucky and my order was ok, but my friends fish and chip was terrible.
The second part of the tour is a waste of time (and Money) because this tour is not cheap. When we arrived at SUN CITY we found out that we could only see the external part of the resort and the access to most of the attractions were private to the resort guests. The only thing we could see was a big Garden in the golf course and the backyard of the Valley of Waves. We we're very disappointed. Besides, what we saw was an oldfashioned resort made in the 90's and that nowadays looks like my grandmother's house. It is not Worth going. Try only the first part of the package.
The view of flora and fauna in Pilanesberg was nice. Sun City was fun, but make sure the waiters don't overcharge you. We had a big problem with Mark's behavior as a tour guide. He was frequently checking his mobile phone, including texting while driving. If you like roller coasters, you might like Mark's driving with swerving, dangerous lane changes, and following cars too closely.Reviewed by: DrHoward, September 2013
