    Wir haben mit Sojila Scenic Safaris die Garden Route inkl Kapstadt bereist. Es war ein außergewöhnliches Erlebnis. Es wurde uns jeder Wunsch erfüllt und falls es mal nicht möglich war, hatte dies organisatorische Gründe. Wir sind haben die Abende und die Gespräche sehr genossen, waren fasziniert, von Mensch und Land und vor allem für das Gute Auge der Guides was die Tiersichtungen betrifft. Wir haben alle BigFive gesehen! Das war außergewöhnlich!

    Wir können Sojila Scenic Safaris uneingeschränkt und aus 100%iger Überzeugung weiterempfehlen!

    I´m from Europe and since 2017 I have been travelled with this company. I always booked private arrangements promoted by the website, but based on the same tours which are offered here. First I visited Garden Route in 2017. Cape Town for 10 days followed in April and in August 2018 bc I had to manage a photo project there. In April 2019 a special trip to Calitzdorp and the Karoo was planned for me and in August I even discovered Johannesburg and Pretoria and I visited all important sights there. Of course I travel alone and so the car was always perfect and in good condition. For the Karoo  a 4-wheel-drive was rented! My perception - no prejudices and scepticism at all! Always friendly, reliable and driving safely!

    We 4 average size Americans were planning a 3 day trip in South Africa. The vehicle was a tiny Audi and 3 of us jammed in for 7 hours in a safari park. Next day we tried for 2 hours- one returned to ship-and driver got lost several times. We could not try another day. He insisted and we paid the full2100 Rands for 3days and we spent 1 1/2 days. Very personable but inexperienced and wrong vehicle. Be wary of HQ and this driver.
