“A great day trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

After reading rave reviews from other travellers about Felleng tours, we booked a day trip to the Apartheid Museum and Soweto for the one day we had in Johannesburg. Booking was straightforward with emails always answered promptly. We were picked up in the morning by Rudie who took us to the Apartheid Museum, and then Agnes took us into Soweto and Kliptown in the afternoon. They were both very friendly, professional and knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed our day with them both. If you are considering a day tour in Johannesburg, look no further!

“Pilanesberg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

What an excellent organisation!! From the start (booking) to the end (getting back to the hotel at the end of the day) it was all at high quality level and value-for-money. What was all in between? Punctual pick-up at the hotel, luxery and specious mini bus, good food on board, very friendly people (Rudie and Agnes both joined us, which was special and highly appreciated), professional guiding in the park (they know where to find what) and above all everything that we have seen. Too many to give a complete overview, but included around 50 elephants, quite a number of rhinos of which at a certain moment 5 around our car, giraffes, hippos, etc.

What a great day we had together. All the fun at the water hole and we were so lucky to see so many animals. Even a black rhino that we haven't see for years. Thank you so much for the review. We appreciate it very much.

“Exceptional Personal Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

We heard about Felleng Tours from people we met on a flight. They raved about the personal service proved by Agnes and Rudie. After a personalized tour of Johannesburg and Soweto, we completely agree. It was like spending a day with friends and learning an extensive amount of the history and culture of the area. At the end of the day, Rudie helped us deal with the airline regarding flight delays because of the hurricane hitting the U.S. Yes, we made the flight!

“Rudie is a great Guide in Joburg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

I had a great tour of Pilanesburg preserve with Felleng tours. Personal service, flexible options and amazing wildlife. In one day we saw elephants, hippos, ostrich, lions, white rhinos, baboons, gazelles, giraffes, zebras, hippos, and wildebeests. Rudie picked me up at 6am and dropped me off at the airport in time for my long flight home. He also helped me understand his country, its history and current events. My only regret was that I didn't have more time to spend in South Africa, but even a one day tour was a memorable experience. If you can, don't leave Joburg without spending a day with Felleng Tours. -Jeff from the USA

“Being English (and therefore a bit reserved) all we can say is "WOW, WHAT A DAY"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Highly enjoyable tour of the vast Pilanesberg Game Reserve, in a comfortable van with the friendly and knowledgeable co-owner Rudie.
It was a day to remember - starting out at 06.00am, we reached the park just after 08.00am, and spotted a (semi submerged ) hippo just 5 minutes later. From that point we came across numerous antelope, and variety of boks.We came within yards of a family group of serene giraffe, these are real favorite of us, and they appeared to be as interested in us, as we were in them. Wonderful sight of the elegant, attractive creatures.
But the highlight (and spotted by Fliss my partner) was a rare sighting of a leopard laying up in her (?) lair, and well hidden some 30 yards from the dirt track, high on a concealed rocky ledge.
We didn't see any lion, but were fortune enough to encounter a troop of elephants crossing in front of us, complete with a cute, and well protected, youngster.
Then, suddenly within 100 yards we were treated to a view of a rhino family. With the mother and baby quickly departing into the thick bush vegetation, it left the Bull to keep a wary eye on us. Or rather, let us know he was around, and prepared to protect his family.
How can some sick minded people kill these fascinating creatures, just for some far fetched myth about their horns?
The trip was great, and we we saw a great variety of wildlife (including some exotic birds), all roaming freely around, hopefully safe from poachers.
We also encountered a number of visitors in Pilanesberg driver their own cars: i cannot imagine what wildlife they saw, as it must have been a very restricted view from such a low position.
It was a great day out, but my partner will never let me forget that it was she, who identified the elusive and well hidden leopard first.
