My wife, two teenage children and I booked two day Game Drive and one day Panorama tour with PK safaris. I was so worried about booking our game drives online as it’s our first trip to Kruger and South Africa. This trip was a treat for my son for finishing his GCSE exams. Hennie Bekker was our guide. He was so polite, very knowledgeable and experienced.
First day we saw two Lions walking pass our Jeep. Hennie brought us to that spot at perfect timing. It was breathtaking to watch the Lions walking in touching distance. Hennie had a fantastic understanding of the animals and their behaviour. He exactly knew what the lions will do next. Also he is an excellent photographer. My son was so keen to see the ‘Big Five’. On the first day, Hennie showed us so many animals including Lions, Elephants, Hyenas, Buffalo, Giraffe, Zebras and several others. On the second day we started early, within 30 minutes of our driving, Hennie took us to a spot to try and see the Rhinos. Again perfect timing- we saw group of Rhinos- we couldn’t believe it! Then the hunt started to spot Leopard. We knew it wasn’t easy to spot them. But Hennie didn’t give up. After few hours driving, he spotted one. Again we took so many photos of the leopard. Hennie exceeded our expectations and worked hard to show us the big five. Third day he took us on a panorama tour around Hazyview and Mpumalanga area. Blyde River canyon view was fantastic. Hennie was very knowledgable about the geography, plants, rocks and all the attractions. I’ll not think twice about recommending PK Safaris and Hennie to my family and friends. I was so glad that I booked PK Safaris.
My wife & I spent some time with Bernhard a couple of years ago. We found him knowledgeable, courteous & professional. We were in a mixed group & he went above & beyond to get us into great spots for photography. He knew where the animals would be & whilst we weren't successful on every section of every, trip we eventually saw all we had set out to see. All of us were interested in the big cats & we saw 11 leopards in 10 days! Excellent! We have booked again to see the bush with Private Kruger Safaris & we are looking forward to our trip in September.
They have high quality vehicle and extreamly knowgable guides we have been on Safari with them a couple of times and had amazing widlife experiences.
Stunning vehicles for the most comfortable big 5 safari in Kruger Park. Wildlife and photographic tours are on offer. Have a look at theire website and make an online booking. Expert and professional guides with many years experience in The Kruger Park will make your private safari unforgettable.
We (a group of 6 adults) just completed our private safari with Bernhard and Arno. Both of these guys were superb. They were efficient in their communication beforehand, their pick-up times were timely, they were always willing to answer any questions we had, and freely shared their wealth of knowledge about Kruger and the many species of life within, great stories about their past experiences, as well as their camera/photography skills.
It was an amazing 2 days at Kruger. Although 2 days is not enough to enjoy all this place has to offer, if you are short on time and want a great private guide experience, I would highly recommend getting in touch with Bernhard and Arno.

Private Kruger Safaris is a small but super efficient safari drive operator. They offer many services and we opted for an afternoon drive. The guides are enthusiast and will do whatever in their possibilities to find areas where to spot animals, big 5 and cats in particular. The guides are also really specialized and into wildlife photography, giving you advices on how to shoot the animals and take great pictures.
I had never been on a private safari drive before, and when you have a whole vehicle for you, I have to admit it is a totally unique experience.
PKS are quick in answering, flexible if you have any trouble and often offer a pickup at your hotel or guest house. We had to suddenly change our booking and they were always ready to help us with anything.
I am looking forward to come back to Hazyview because I will for sure book another drive with them.
