We were able to see all animals except for the cheetah. The guide knew where to look, he did a great job, I recommend the full day safari.

Incredible day - recommended for anyone
We had an absolutely fantastic day on our one day pilanesburg safari from joburg. We were picked up by Jason from our hotel bang on time. We had to change hotels last minute due to an unforeseen issue, but this was no problem. Jason is friendly, professional, and incredibly knowledgable. He discussed points of interest on the 2.5 hour drive to Pilanesburg national park. He chatted as much or as little as we wanted and was interesting and engaging without being ‘in your face’. His knowledge of the areas surrounding joburg is great, and he answered all the questions we had, and made the journey interesting for us. We arrived at the park early, so Jason took us on a short drive into the park, enabling us to see an elephant close up, before our tour had even officially started! He then dropped us at the park reception and introduced us to our park ranger for the day. (See other review for actual safari). Afterwards, Jason met us and took us for our included lunch. Thinking this would be the usual fairly average excursion lunch, we were very pleasantly surprised when Jason took us to one of the nicest lodges in the whole national park, and told us to choose what we wanted from the a la carte menu! We didn’t have the heart to choose fillet steak, but we had a lovely lunch, beer, and soft drinks and left very full - all included in the very reasonable price of around £190 per person for the whole day. He then offered to take us back into the park in his own vehicle, but as we had already had an incredibly good sighting of all the animals wanted to see, we headed for home. On the way back he continued to add interest with a little bit of commentary (Jason uses a microphone even though his vehicle is small, which stops you having to strain forwards to hear him on the noisy roads - a great little touch). We arrived back at our hotel almost exactly 12 hours after we left, having had a brilliant day. Would recommend Jason (who is a one man band, running his own company, and deserves your support) to anyone. Brilliant brilliant brilliant.
