A very professional and responsible service! Johan picked us up in front of our accommodation and returned us back, after a day trip to the safari and visiting the African village, the tour is a phenomenal combination. All the recommendations, thank you once again, and I hope to see you next time.

Beautiful experience. I would recommend everybody to visit a cultural village. Really incredible. I would also suggest a safari tour. I would like to connect with the visit of the village. The experience is extraordinary.

Day Trips from Pretoria
TripAdvisor
We were in Pretoria on business and decided to do something fun at the end of our trip. My colleague got in touch with African Tracks Safaris offering day trips from Pretoria based on the TripAdvisor’s review. This is how we met Johan, our guide. We used his services for 2 days. On the first day trip from Pretoria we went to see elephants and cheetahs. Both parks/ centres are located next to each other, so it makes sense to combine these trips. The next day trip from Pretoria we went to Dinokeng game reserve for a day safari from Pretoria (their game drives are 6 am, 9 am, 2 pm, 4:30 pm and 8:30 pm). We did a 9 am drive. The reserve is within 45-50 min drive from Pretoria. Both trips are highly recommended. Elephants and cheetahs are in sanctuaries, they are still wild, but are taken care of the humans and are used to humans. For that reason, you will be able to see them very close and in the case of elephants, you will be able to feed and touch them or even be “kissed”. Cheetahs will be walking next to the truck expecting to be fed. The guides for both places were very knowledgeable. The game drive at Dinokeng was not as amazing to me personally (I did a safari in Tanzania during winter/their summer time). However, we got to see the buffalos and three white rhinos very close. Giraffes were at a distance. We did not get to see any cats or elephants (but that was fine, because the day before we got plenty of cheetah and elephants experience). Also in order to see more animals you need to do several drives at different times of the day and ideally stay in the park. There is a private game lodge in the park where one can stay in a cabin. They also have a nice restaurant with a deck overlooking a pond. We had lunch there after our 9 am game drive. Now about Johan, our guide. We really enjoyed his company. He is a true professional, has been in business for almost 10 years. Very knowledgeable and passionate about preserving wildlife. He is very articulate and a pleasure to be around, a true gentleman. He has a great network in the industry and is well placed to customize your trip on a short notice. His SUV is nice and new. He gave us colorful printouts of our daily itineraries and provided an invoice. He has a credit card terminal handy and will accept credit card payment at the end of a trip. Very well organized and very professional. I plan on returning to SA and possibly bringing my family. I would not hesitate to use Johan’s services again. He also made a nice video of our trip and send it to my whatsapp. I shared it with my family and friends..

So happy you spotted an Aardvark, seldom that they’re around in broad daylight! And the lions that caught a wildebeest right there in the camp! Wow, amazing!
Thank you for joining us on safari, enjoy the flight home!

Richard Scott – I had a great time. Thanks for arranging everything. My only job was to enjoy the ambience and the game drives. It was an adventure I will never forget. In the U.S., lions never roar at night. Although eerie, I miss that blood-curdling sound. I put the Entabeni experience on Facebook and it is now on the bucket list of several friends. I would definitely recommend African Tracks Safari to anyone and everyone. Keep up the great job!

Thank you, Richard, I sincerely appreciate you joining us on Safari here in South Africa. Thank you again for the lovely conversation en route! Please take care and let us know when you are back in town, would love to catch up!

Absolutely Wonderful!

Great company! Great people! Definitely focuses on the clients’ experience but remaining mindful of the programs. very realistic with what can be accommodated but always over delivers! My second time with the group and would engage them again for the next visit! It’s always been a great experience with them at the helm!

All was perfect with African Tracks Safaris, next time again! Best Safari on the End of my Business Trip in Pretoria.
Response from AfricanTracksSafaris, Manager at African Tracks Safaris
Thank you Elvis, we just made it out of the park and on to the freeway when the downpour started. The lions next to the road on the way out were awesome not to mention the two elephants close to the safari vehicle. Let me know when you are back in September, perhaps there’s time for a two-night stay or even a trip down to the Kruger National Park. A fantastic evening to you!

Hi Johan,

Yes, everything went very smoothly. The lodge is lovely and we had a big day today in Kruger with lots of rhinos, elephants, and all sorts of baby animals. We’re back at the lodge now and only now getting online. We’re having too much fun to be checking emails 😊

Thanks!

Thanks, Johan. We’ve had an amazing time this week and are sad to be leaving today. Could you please confirm the time of the pick-up for the airport? I imagine it should be around 12:30 for a 3:10 flight but forgot to confirm on Sunday.

Thanks,

Lisa

I am glad the time and safari at Kruger and Mjejane was lovely!

Whish I could meet up with you just to say Hi!

Enjoy the rest of your tour.

A fantastic day to you!

Yes, it’s been a fantastic trip so far. I’m sure Durban will also be wonderful. We’ll look for the vehicle at 12:30.

Thanks again!

Game drive in Dinokeng Game Reserve

Me and my colleague had a weekend spare on our work trip to Pretoria and Johan arranged to take us to Dinokeng nature reserve at a week’s notice – it was great to get out of the city! We were picked up straight from the hotel and we were in Dinokeng in under 30 mins. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable about the local area and the wildlife in South Africa and made an excellent tour guide. He was also kind enough to take pictures and send them over to us afterwards!Day tour from Pretoria
