Finding Go Safari well-rated on Trip Advisor, I reached out for information to help plan a safari trip to Kruger. Glen responded quickly and thoroughly and provided me five options among which I found Sausage Tree Safari Camp which was exactly what I was looking for. 'Glamping' and being immersed in the African bush, but with all the comforts I... More

Hi carol1877 It was a pleasure to arrange this safari for you and a big thank you for writing such a great review. The luxury tented lodges like Sausage Tree are very popular and it is “glamping” not a normal tent and camp like people initially think. Pity the weather was not perfect when you visited the Canyon but at... More

The trip was great. Go Safari drove us from our hotel in Pretoria to the Pilanesberg National Park where the accommodations at Bakubung Bush Lodge were fitting for a safari. The food at the Lodge was good. The afternoon/evening ride and the early morning ride into the park were a lifetime experience. We saw elephants, rhino, hippo, giraffes, cheetah, wildebeest,...

I was impressed by Glen's arrangements for the trip in a short period of time that made possible to accommodate our trip without any wait time during this trip. there were two different destinations in this trip from Johannesburg that Glen made booking such a way that we did not have to spend any day unnecessary at one location. That's... More

From start to finish, my experience with Go Safari was nothing short of amazing. In planning a last-minute vacation, I was worried about finding a decent tour; but both via phone and email, Susan patiently walked me through all of my options and was very flexible to what I wanted for my experience. She was also very quick to respond... More

Had the opportunity to head to Pilanesburg National Park on a day trip. Although it was a long day it certainly went quickly. A relaxing drive up from Johannesburg and an obligatory stop at the markets got us to the park around lunchtime. Service and food quality was exceptional. The open safari trucks were great for animal viewing and we... More

Andrew B Thank you very much for making time and writing the review, much appreciated.

Hope to meet you again and try to show you... More

There's nothing I would change about this experience. Given our limited time in Johannesburg, we wanted a 1 day Safari to get a taste of what its all about. GoSafari were able to accommodate.

We recommend Go Safari for travelers interested in incorporating a game drive into their visit to South Africa. We had limited time in Johannesburg, so the day safari option worked well for us. Our driver picked us up promptly at the appointed time, and the van was comfortable. The elephant walk was a great experience; our only complaint was that... More

Dear Nadirah F I am sorry about the confusion about the elephant walk time, late last year they decided to make the walk a 60 minute walk instead of a 90 minute walk and kept the price the same. I will check our itinerary! The market is a great stop and you are correct the vendors are a bit aggressive... More
