One American + seven Norwegians to Pilanesberg National Park with Danny and Henna (the owners) = FUN! Yes, OK, Pretvan (pret = "fun" in Afrikaans) is a smaller outfit, but they were fantastically well organized. Danny and Henna picked me up at my guesthouse at 7am, and we picked up the Norwegians.

Danie has a broad knowledge as well as a great sense of humor. I learnt A LOT and had wonderful time visiting Joburg, Soweto, Pretoria, Lion's Park and Lesedi Cultural Village. I will definitely come back to visit Kruger Park but only with Danie and his wife!! Thank you, that was a pleasure to meet you :) Joanna

He shared stories and facts about the animals we were seeing plus facts about the history and culture of South Africa. We went to Pilanesberg, Cradle of Humankind, and The Lion Park with Danie and enjoyed our... More
