          Buyer Beware!!! February 2024
          Our drivers were amazing, top tier!!! However we were robbed by the company. The owner/manager inflated our 1-day Safari price by $100 USD pp(we paid $155 USD pp for a group of 22ppl but the Safari only costs $50 USD pp) where did the addt’l $105 come from? Make it make sense. This is so unfortunate but never again!!!

          Pollen made sure that everything is in order from arranging the tickets and as well as making sure we are safe at Gold Reef City and also making sure we travel safely with good music. There is never a dull a moment with Bono Tours and Safaris

          Fantastic Lodge
          This was my 2nd time and what could I say. It is quiet, beautiful surroundings, chalets are impeccable ( we had out plunge pool and 2 bedroom villa). The high light was the dinner at the Booma. Tafa the Manger was very helpful, professional and made sure we were all well looked after. Will be back

          Madikwe River Lodge / Safari Tour
          Fantastic experience with all staff at the river lodge friendly and very attentive making our visit extra special. For our safari we were lucky enough to get Benny as our ranger to take us out. Benny’s knowledge and willingness to go that extra mile with a little bit of luck added resulted in us gaining sight of all the big five, Hyenas, Wild Dogs and much more, and all close up. An exceptional experience!!!

          Restaurant and food very poor
          The restaurant and food is very poor. Standards have dropped with unfriendly waiters. The Safari and amenities are very good with excellent accommodation and surroundings

          The hospitality is amazing. The staff members are friendly and professional. Room service is beyond, the rooms are clean
          We’re coming back. We have enjoyed our four days stay. The food is fresh and clean and enough for everyone and one can go back as much as they like.

          Madikwe is worth visiting
          Haven’t stayed a Thakadu River, but I highly recommend Madikwe. Not as big, clearly, as Kruger, but uncrowded and less expensive than the fancy places in the Greater Kruger. Stayed at Tau and Buffalo Ridge.

          Great experience
          It was a really nice trip. The guide is absolutely amazing. He had a special connection to the animals and told us a lot about them. I never thought that we would see so many animals. I really recommend this tour.

          very inflexible team. Beware before you book! Choose a different site if you can
          The reservation team at Aha Thakadu is very inflexible and customer service is awful. We were 4 travellers and had a very bad experience. I would pick a different game reserve next time.

          Informative and pleasant trip
          Prosper, our guide, was very friendly and flexible - he was willing to adapt to our interests and curiosities. He answered all our questions and was very knowledgeable. We were his only clients on this trip, so we were probably lucky. Overall, this was a very enjoyable trip!

          Belizean Q'eqchi Maya on Safari In South Africa
          Best experience ever and a wonderful way to honour the lands of the African people! The animals and the landscape is a gift from creator and we should all promote its healing, and its care. This tour allows us to see and appreciate the bounty of the land without harming the environment. It is this that we as tourist should go and see. I stand against all HUNTING for SPORTs in Africa! Pay for a Safari instead and appreciate life!

          Our stay with the big 5
          We stayed at the Shepherds Lodge on the first leg of our honeymoon and were greated with amazing scenery. Martin our guide was amazingly knowledgable and did his best to help us see the big five. He knew a lot of info about the animals and wasn’t afraid to get his hands dirty...literally pulling elephant poo apart to tell us about it. But the highlight of our trip was an elephant coming the watering hole meters from the swimming pool and watching the magnificent animal close up. As they knew it was our honeymoon they spoiled us with a complimentary bottle of champagne, chocolates and ran a bath for us on our first night. Rooms were extremely clean, and the service was first class. Plus all the jerky you can eat!

          Fantastic
          I have to be honest, from the moment I booked with bono tours, I had to make some arrangements for my uncle that was coming in the trip with us! It was so easy to deal with it! Gave me peace of mind. And the hotel is amazing and the games so worth

          Excellent!
          I was introduced to Robert of Bono Tours and Safaris by a friend, and that friend certainly did me a big favour. Together with my wife, children and grandchildren (16 of us) we had the trip of a lifetime! Both Robert and his fellow guide Nutendo were really excellent. They were knowledgeable, friendly and Robert took some fantastic photos, which he shared with us. I would not hesitate to recommend Robert and Bono Tours.

        The communication between the tour company and the driver was poor. The driver arrived late and hadn't got the message that we would be waiting for him in our hotel lobby at 8pm. The driver also didn't know what was included in the tour and we had to get him to contact the tour company so they could confirm that visiting the caves and lunch were included.
        However, the tour itself was excellent, hence four stars. If the communications/logistics were sorted out, it could be first class.

        Good day, Thank you for the review and we greatly appreciatethat. I'll sit down to find out what really happened as the pickup details was communicated to him clearly and also correct his errors of not knowing what was included or not as it was not for the first time for him to do the tour. This will help us to give first class experience as we always do... Kind regards, Robert,

        My experience was good. I booked last minute and everything worked out well. Driver showed up on time and the trip went really well. I was a solo traveler and so I had full influence over our schedule and pace which was very nice.
        There was some initial confusion with the tour operator and the driver about when the tour was supposed to start. Overall, while very valuable, the initial price for the trip was lower than the price I paid at booking. I think this is because I was a solo guest. That said the overall trip did seem overpriced considering other comparable options.

        I was traveling solo to Johannesburg before I met my friend in the south, and I wanted to take advantage of the safari parks up north. Being solo and not comfortable driving a car on my own to these places, I found Bono tour option here on TripAdvisor. They had lots of personalized options on their website, but Cradle of Humankind and Lion Safari Park were my two big interests. I was hesitant at first since I only got confirmation from trip advisor and not directly from Bono and when I tried calling when I got into the country the line was turned off. But my driver arrived promptly when he said and was very nice, if not a little quiet. He drove me to each place and handled the logistics and told me exactly where he could meet me and I felt so much more comfortable. Traveling alone is stressful enough, but Bono tours helped me accomplish something I wouldn’t normally have been able to do on my own. I would highly recommend them and talk with them to create your perfect itinerary.
