    Amazing game drives - ask for Jan for your driver!
    Our game drive with Kruger pride safaris was the best of our whole trip. Jan was amazing, so funny with his hilarious jokes, and so knowledgable. We past him the following day while self driving and was chuffed when he stopped to say hello and point us in the direction of some lions 💛 he truly made our trip in Kruger park. Very good value for money also with comfortable, safe cars - (which you can’t say about some we went on especially in Chobe!) and lovely blankets given out for the early morning! ☺️
    Hi Thank you so much. We are happy you enjoyed your safari Regards The Kruger Pride Team

    Informative,Engaging and Fun experience.
    All I can say is, ask if Jan is available to be your guide. The animals unfortunately won the game of Hide and go seek as we only got to see 3 of the Big 5, but Jan gave us so much more information about the plant life trees and birds his knowledge was truly amazing, made the experience not only informative and fun but always kept even my teens engaged. Hats off to Kruger Pride Safari's for awesome service, please note you have the King of Dad jokes in your employ. Thank you.

    Thank you Jan
    This was our second safari with Kruger Pride Safaris with Jan as our guide. We chose Jan again as he is so accommodating, knowledgeable and personable. From an organisational point of view Liz was brilliant with handling the booking and additional queries. We had a wonderful day, seeing many many animals, not entirely down to luck I feel, but more to Jans wealth of experience! There were well needed rest camp breaks for toilets and refreshments. Jan is a mind of information as well as throwing in jokes for good measure ! All in all a thoroughly enjoyable day and would defiantly recommend both Kruger Pride Safaris and Jan. Thank you both.
    Hi Many thanks for your kind review We do hope to see you again Regards The Kruger Pride team

    BEST safari drive!
    Wow-what can I say? A drive with Kerry is simply the BEST. I love that her passion for the animals matched my own. She wanted to find all the things as much as I did - and delivered. She knew the park like the back of her hand and knew the prides, their histories, everything. She was always in tune to when the last lion or leopard or cheetah etc was spotted and her experience helped put us in the best spot for the best experience. I can't tell you how many lions walked right by us, leopard too!
    Hi Thank you so much for your review We do appreciate your taking the time to write a review, and are so pleased you enjoyed your safari with Kerry. Regards The Kruger Pride Team

    Excellent game drive experience
    African Pride Safaris provided us with a much enjoyed, value for money game drive experience. Our guide,Jan's knowledge of animals, birds and trees is exceptional and in-between sightings, he entertained us with his great sense of humour. We saw a wide variety of animals, including lions. Highly recommended.

    We loved our game drives with Jan! He was friendly, fun and very knowledgeable. We loved the first drive so much we had to go on a second. We were also lucky enough to see some great game, but also just loved the views. Thanks Jan and Kruger pride safaris!

    Great gamedrive with excellent guide
    With Jan as your guide you can’t have a bad day. We were picked up at our house at Marloth Park, and from the moment Jan arrived we had a great time. Jan is both a good driver and a very good guide. When you book with Kruger Pride Safaris you are allowed to enter the Kruger Park 15 minutes before opening hours, and this gives you a nice headstart. We had some very nice sightings and enjoyed our whole safari. Even on the moments we didn’t see any wildlife Jan still made the day very amusing. We had a great time, and already booked another gamedrive at Kruger Pride Safaris

    Wonderful full day out with Hayley from Kruger Pride Safaris!
    Fabulous full-day private safari from our accommodation in Marloth Park, with the lovely Hayley as our guide. We were surprised to learn that she grew up in Kent, England, where we are from, but she was the perfect guide; good-humoured, interesting and informative and exceptional at spotting animals and birds even while concentrating on driving! We saw most of what we hoped to see from hippos and elephants to red-billed hornbills and vultures. We even got fleeting glimpses of lions on the prowl. We would thoroughly recommend Kruger Pride Safaris for ease of booking and a great quality, reliable and professional service.
    Hi Thank you so much for your great review and are very happy your enjoyed your time with Hayley. She also mentioned you were great guests! We hope that we see you again. Regards The Kruger Pride Tream

This was such an awesome experience! I have been on many game drives and nothing rivals the trip we had with Jan and Kruger pride Safaris.

Jan picked us up from our house in Marloth early in the morning, we were among the first to enter the park and were treated to a full moon with a sunrise! It was spectacular.

Jan was really professional, knowledgeable and so much fun! He knew exactly when to be quiet and let us enjoy the moment and when to teach us something new or crack a bad joke.

The vehicles were in great condition, clean, sanitised and I felt safe at all times, even when we came face-to-face with a bull elephant who was definitely not a morning person.

We were so lucky in our sightings! I ordered some elephants, a lion and a rhino and Jan delivered right on time! 😂

I highly recommend Kruger Pride Safaris for anyone who is looking to have an unforgettable experience in Kruger.

From the booking proses to the end of our tour in the Kruger our experience with Kruger Pride Safaris and Ranger Jan Bergh was outstanding.
We were lucky enough to have the safari vehicle to ourselves and learned so much from Jan. His knowledge about the animals and nature was very insightful.
We forgot to pack our cameras batteries and Jan was so kind to lend us his personal camera for the day to ensure we have the full experience.
I will highly recommend Kruger Pride Safaris and Ranger Jan Bergh if you are planning on visiting the Kruger, they won't disappoint!

We did two full day safaris with Africa pride safari.
Our guide Jan picked us up at our hotel and provided us with cozy warm blankets during the cold start of the day.
The experience was truly amazing! Jan spotted animals that were far away and made our days very special.
He also provided a lot of very interesting information about the animal, as well as the flora and fauna.
We were very lucky and saw the Big 5 and even had 4 lions pass our vehicle very closely.
We did the safari two days in a row but still saw lots of different parts of the Kruger.
Thank you so much again! It was a great pleasure and we will definitely book the safari with Jan again when we are back and we would highly recommend it to everyone who is visiting Kruger national park!

I am absolutely delighted with my tour with Jan Bergh. Within 5 minutes of our tour we had a sighting of lions, hyena and cheetah, amongst others. Jan was very strategic in arriving first to the sighting, thus reflected in his great knowledge and experience of the park and its animals. There were stops for breakfast, lunch and toilet, and he always kept us in the loop with what we were seeing and where we were going. All in all, a great experience that I highly recommend!

Jan, our guide for the day, went out of his way to make the game drive a most memorable experience for Marlene, who is blind, and at 75 years old was on her first game drive ever. She thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would love to go again. Brian and Anastasia, such a lovely couple from Cape Town to share the drive with on their first time visit to Kruger. Just a big thank you for being so accommodating to a visually disabled person, the smells, the sounds, the sharing of knowledge. Highly recommended and a memorable experience.

What an amazing experience! Jan our flies guide is a legend. He was punctual, very knowledgeable and has a great sense of humour. if felt like we had safari with a fiend rather than just a tour/field guide. The whole process from enquiries to booking the safari was done in a smooth professional manner. I will definitely recommend.

Had a great time on the safari, ended up seeing most of the main attractions besides a rhino. Kerry was our guide and she was incredibly friendly and charming. She had an answer or interesting fact about everything we came across. Amongst spotting a cheetah in the distance a few minutes into the tour, she also managed to track down a leopard that was evading everybody all day. I definitely had the feeling of being with someone with a lot of knowledge and experience which I think goes a long way in making the safari tour more engaging.
