Whilst on a horse riding safari in Botswana I was offered a walking safari as an afternoon activity. I was picked up by Pieter and driven to camp. We stopped to view some giraffe along the way and chatted about the game reserve and animals. I set off on the walking safari feeling strangely confident after some basic instruction and a pre walk safety chat. I was extremely impressed by Pieter’s detailed information about not just the game but even the tiniest creatures that inhabit this fascinating landscape and all the birds in it’s beautiful skies.

We did a morning Bush Walk where we gained lots of information about the plants, animals and birds around the area. Pieter, our guide, was very knowledgeable on the area, the local plants and animals, and knew just where to take us to find and explore what we wanted to see.

Pieter is a very personable and bright fellow. Trained as an engineer, he has fallen in love with Africa and studied intensively. A morning walk at a ranch in South Africa revealed far more than I would have imagined. The telltale signs of wildlife markings, the birds, the vegetation were all there but now I was "seeing" and not just looking.

Pieter was our guide during a recent family riding holiday in South Africa and looked after us all extremely well – whether tracking and spotting animals, birds and insects when out on rides and sharing stories about them; ensuring we had everything we needed at camp; or entertaining us in the evening during a candlelit dinner by the campfire. We especially enjoyed learning how to ‘just be’ in the bush – disconnecting teenagers from electronics and becoming aware of the nature around us. We were lucky enough to see an elusive hyena cub! Another highlight was when he organised cattle herding on horseback for all 5 of us – great to have the whole family working together as a team concentrating on the same objective under Pieter’s careful leadership whilst having fun at the same time. We regret preferring a lie-in to doing one of his early morning walking tours and would definitely do this next time for an immersive bush experience!
