My son and I went on the Pilanesberg day tour with Darren from Soul Adventures. Darren went all out to ensure it was an unforgettable day, he was entertaining with his steady supply of jokes and knowledge on the many animals we got to see. I would absolutely recommend Soul Adventures, it was a great experience from the easy booking... More

After a week in Maputo I found myself with a 16 hour layover in Johannesburg the next day and no plans, so a quick internet search for day trips/layover tours brought me to the Soul Adventures website. Just a day before leaving, I reached out and Darren responded promptly with some ideas and what I thought was a very reasonable... More

Well… I guess if you are going to be spending an entire day with them, climbing mountains and so forth, you will probably be accommodated. I, a solo traveler, booked an walking elephant tour, via Facebook messenger. Response was slow, which was OK, they were climbing mountains. They said sure how about Monday, I said awesome. It was confirmed, then... More

Hi, Just want to explain our side of the story. When we asked if you could do the tour on the Tuesday or Wednesday it was merely a question. We did not confirm that would be picking you up. As you may understand, we are not office bound and are most of the time on tour during the day. Responding... More

Go to Pilanesburg! Soul Adventures picked us up on time at 5:45 am and gave us the experience of a lifetime. Darren's puns and insights kept us entertained and educated on animal life (including the human variety) in South Africa. It is easy to tell that Darren absolutely loves what he does, his passion will rub off on you!

From start to finish it was a truly unforgettable experience, even when Darren left a small brown package in his sleeping bag - nothing was too much for him. Travelling into African countries at the best of times can be taxing, having someone who has depth of experience certainly assists in getting all elements resolved, it took any outside stress...

I had a short stay in Joburg, but wanted to see as much. I first booked a day tour of the Pilansberg National Park. I had such a blast!!! Darren did everything possible, drove on multiple roads to make sure that I saw the Big 5. It was soooo exciting to see elephants, giraffes, jackals, lions, hippos, and rhinos... to... More

Myself and my girlfriend had he most amazing day out with the brilliant character that is Darren. We were picked up from Johannesburg at 6am prompt and didn't get back until 9pm. Other than travel time we spent the whole day within Pilanesberg, with Darren doing his best to make sure we got to see as many animals as this... More

My husband and I found Soul Adventures through the internet. We were extremely happy with their service. Their feedback and pre tour advice was fast and covered everything we needed to know. The tour itself was well organised. The guide knew exactly where to find the animals and made our day a truly memorable one. It was just the two... More

What an incredible day we had with the team at Soul Adventures. We had a few days spare in Johannesburg and decided instead of skulking around the city, we would embark on a day tour. After contacting a few companies we decided to go with Soul Adventures. They were not only the fastest to respond, but we loved their concept.... More

Thank-you Soul Adventures for a beautiful, tough, memorable and life-affirming experience! Our three day hike in the Drakensburg mountains boasted incredible scenery in an untouched conservation area of Natal, bordering Lesotho. Champagne Castle is the third highest peak in South Africa and a rather challenging peak to summit – which would not have been possible without the super experienced Darren... More
