Loved every moment of this safari. Darren from soul adventures is laid back and very knowledgeable on wild animals. He went out of his way to find a lot of the animals for us. Darren owns the company and you can see he loves what he does. If you are looking for a more personal experience and want to avoid the commercial group tours then you need to get hold of him.

We spent a day in the Pilanebserg with our guide Darren. What a gem of a guy. He was so knowledgeable when it came to the animals. We learnt so much from him. He has a crazy sense of humor and he made the tour an amazing experience for us. He is laid back yet professional. We got to see an abundance of wild animals from lion, elephant, zebra, impala, hippo, giraffe and warthog. Book with soul adventures!! They are really good

Outstanding safari experience with the team from soul adventures. We spent he day with them in the Pilanesbeeg national park. We had an absolute blast. Our guide found most of the animals on our safari bucket list. The tour was relaxed and there was only 4 people on the trip. Guide was great.

Hello. Not a real fair review for us. The booking was done on Xmas day at 9m for the next morning at 6am. We don’t have staff working that late in the night. And coupled with that, it is virtually impossible to organize guides and vechiles at that time of the night for a trip that morning. It is Xmas holidays. We don’t have staff checking mails at 6 in the morning either. Ruined a day of vacation? Making a booking at 9pm for the next day could mean you never had anything planned anyway. Cant put that on us.

Spectacular day tour of the Pilanesberg. The Safari was led by Darren. Great guy with a wealth of knowledge of wildlife. Impressive sightings including wild dog and plenty of elephants.

Hey guys, just wanted to extend our sincere thanks to Darren and his safari team at Soul Adventures. The service was incredible. The online booking was done through viator so we didn’t have much contact with the team until the day of the tour. The guides were on time and super friendly. We felt ease with the guys the moment we met. We were a group of 6 ladies so we were obviously a bit apprehensive to be traveling alone in South Africa, especially on a safari with wild animals. The tour turned out to be one of the best experiences for us. Darren went out of his way to find a variety of super cool animals. These included elephant, lion, giraffe, hippo, zebra and rhino. Darren has a wacky sense of humor and their was never a dull moment. If you are looking at safari options from Johannesburg, we highly recommend this company.

Hello, We understand your frustration and take your concern very seriously. I have conducted an internal investigation and it seems our guide and yourselves missed each other. You have been refunded your money a second far as our records show
