Best single day game drive of the four we took in South Africa for the animals viewed and the guide. Ms. Opperman's depth of the knowledge and attention is unsurpassed. On the drive from Johannesburg she gave us detailed social, geological and historical facts. Once in Pilanesberg she kept us informed about birds, flowers, big game, small game, reptiles - everything. The picnic she provided was gourmet, home cooked, locally sourced and delicious. Her van was comfortable and easy to take pictures from.
Lesley was great ... extremely knowledgeable (about everything!), supplied a fabulous lunch, cheerfully undertook a lot of driving (including reversing away from a somewhat displeased elephant!). She helped customize our tour beforehand to take advantage of our 15 hours to fill. A fabulous way to end an amazing time in South Africa. Thanks Lesley - we are thinking of you as we slowly freeze and are submerged in snow.
This was an amazing experience, the Reserve was wonderful with lots of different animals to see and our guide, Lesley, was extremely knowledgeable and was able to point out animals that we would have completely missed had she not been there. Absolutely fabulous!
outstanding tour and expert input by Leslie. Highly recommended.

The tour was a little pricey and had it not been a holiday weekend where all other operators I could find were booked full I never would have booked this tour. That said I am glad I did as Lesley was very knowledgeable of the history of Johannesburg and Pilanesberg as well as of the animals we encountered on the safari.
