An experience I'll never forget. Quartus was an excellent guide and everything was as promised. He came to pick me up early in the morning where I was staying and we were out all day in Pilanesberg. I saw 4 out of the big 5. He could answer almost every question I had. Quartus is such a nice person and has a real passion and love for this. I would 100 percent recommend this experience.

With our busy schedule, my wife and I had only one day for a safari and did not want to sit squeezed in a minivan with a bunch of other tourists. Quartus picked us up with a brand new, sparkling clean and excellent equipped SUV. He took us on an unforgettable journey through the park, with breaks to get out of the car and go to lookouts to get even closer to some of the animals, or enjoy the panoramic view of the park from a mountaintop. He lend us a digitalcamera as our phones would not have been able to capture all this beauty. A morning and afternoon snack were provided and a lunch 'a la carte' in the park restaurant was included and very appreciated. If I ever come back here, I will book with Quartus again.

An absolutely exceptional Pilanesburg experience. Quartus was knowledgeable, outgoing and concerned for our comfortand safety and ensuring that we had a truly memorable time. Quartus picked us up in his new and extremely comfortable 4x4 at our accommodation in Rosebank at 5 AM to enable us to beat the Johannesburg traffic. He was also extremely generous with his time to maximize our game viewing experience. I cannot imagine a better one day visit to Pilanesburg, particularlyfor those seeking a more personal experience rather than a large group tour.

Had a really lovely time and even got to see a baby elephant that had just been born. Magical experience! Thank you Quartus for being a great host and catering to our needs (vegan) we really appreciate that.

Quartus was amazing, he knows the community and was friendly to everyone we encountered. The best part of the trip was seeing elephants being born! I highly recommend doing this trip with him! 100% worth the price
