    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

Beautiful experience. We booked a drive with an excellent guide named Hayley. She was just perfect. Her knowledge was impeccable, as was her sense of humour. We couldn't have asked for better. We spent 6 hours in the Kruger national Park. Saw so much of the bigger more exciting wildlife, such as leopard, cheetah, lion, elephants, giraffe, zebra and much more. Her patience, her empathy, just her whole vibe, means you should book your drive with Hayley. Can't wait to return ☀️

This was our third game drive with Kruger Pride and we just can’t say enough good things about this company! We’ve had a different guide every time and all were fantastic. Kerry is unsurpassed in her knowledge of Kruger wildlife, especially birds. Tamlyn brought us closer to a leopard than ever before, and Hayley showed us Kruger’s endangered species- cheetah, a pack of wild dogs, and the saddle-billed stork. Stunning! You won’t be disappointed with the woman run company. You go, girls!

Just enjoyed 2 game drives into Kruger with Tasmyn as our guide. She is enthusiastic, knowledgeable and very punctual. As a group of 3 couples the vehicle was perfect for us, clean and well maintained. I would definitely recommend using Kruger Pride Safaris for your game trips into Kruger.

We did a tour yesterday with Kruger Pride Safari and strongly recommend this one!
Hailey was our tour guide and she did everything to make us feel comfortable. Hailey knew a lot of fun facts about the animals, not the basic stuff everyone knows but really new interesting things.
She had a good contact with us, but also with the other tourguides, which made that she knew all the hotspots to look for animals.
Thank you Hailey and Kruger Pride safaris for the lovely morning !

The early morning sunrise was great. We managed to get some pics of Giraffe eating. So majestic. We learnt that there are the "Big Five", "Ugly Five" and the "Small Five".
We saw two of the " Ugly Five" - Hyena and Warthog. Also the "Small Five" -the Leopard Tortoise, he actually charge the truck..kikikiki. I was especially looking forward to seeing Elephants, my grandson loves them, we were both astounded to see how big they were and how close the were to the truck. What was really special was us seeing a pack of Wild Dog, playing right next to our truck. They even gave us a glimpse of a mock hunt.
A special thanks to our guide- Hayley - she was very prompt in picking us up @ 4:30am. She made the trip so enjoyable, with her, pleasantness, humour and overall lovely nature. Her extensive knowledge of the wild life there made the trip so rewarding. And her prompt awareness to get us to the best viewing of wildlife, was truly commendable. For us she's the "bestest" and we will be asking for her on our next visit, with I hope will be real soon.

Thank you Kruger Pride Safa

We recently did a morning safari with Kruger Pride Safaris with family that was visiting from Australia. Kerry was our guide and we had an absolutely amazing morning. Kerry is an expert on animals in the Kruger and shared her vast knowledge with us every minute along the way. My niece said that now when she thinks of an African Safari, this will always be her memory. I would book again in a heartbeat.

I spent five days in Marloth Park, did four game drives with Kruger Pride. I had drives with Kerry, Tamsyn and two days with Hayley. I was really impressed with their knowledge and professionalism. Each of them picked me up at my lodging, as well as the others going on the drive. We got to Crocodile Bridge Gate early enough to be some of the first people through the gate. They took care of all the paperwork at the entrance.
Each asked me if I had any animals that I really wanted to see, and they worked to find them for me. I had joked my entire time in Botswana and South Africa that I wanted to see African wild dogs. I didn’t have expectations but Tamsyn was able to find them for me.
Each day was different but great in its own way. With Kerry, we found mating lions and three cheetahs that had just made a kill. Tamsyn was able to find wild dogs. Life was a little tougher as we got later in the week. Temps were higher (up to 105F or 41C). The animals were much harder to locate and they were rarely moving. Hayley was able to find several lions, and got us very close to elephants and giraffes. I was able to get some fantastic photographs each day. I felt that after four days, I was on drives with friends.
