We (three of us) enjoyed our 3.5 hr tour with Safari direct. It was nice to have a private tour as you can dictate things a little, such as getting the driver to move the jeep a little to get that 'perfect' photo, but not sure it was worth the significantly higher cost than the public tour with the KNP guides. We saw similar things to the public tour at the same time and were in a very similar vehicle. If i had my choice again would probably just use the public tour used the money saved for other things (more tours - what a great palce KNP is!)
