Ingrid was so friendly and knowledgeable! We had an amazing time at Pilanesberg National Park. Ingrid arranged for an open game vehicle to take us on a 3-hour tour, supplied a light breakfast with coffees and teas, and took us for a delicious lunch. She is a phenomenal guide and hostess!

I would highly recommend a trip with Ingrid! Our trip with Ingrid was perfect. A group of 4 friends were visiting South Africa for a wedding and travelling with a rather compressed itinerary. We decided to arrange a 2-Day & 1-Night trip to Pillansberg National Park due to it's proximity to Johannesburg. Ingrid was amazing to work with - she has incredibly quick email response time and right from our initial contact, she instilled confidence in me that she was the right choice! Ingrid is so knowledgeable about the animals, the national park, and the country as a whole, and her passion for wildlife and her country truly shines through. On the first day, Ingrid picked us up from the airport, took us to the reserve where we settled in, enjoyed lunch on the terrace at the lodge, and joined the lodge's afternoon game drive. As it is a national park and the animals are free to roam wild, there's never a guarantee for which animals you'll see - but that's part of the excitement and wonder when you do cross paths with the animals. Just before sunset, we encountered four rhinos that were casually grazing by the side of the road - about 5 metres away from the vehicle - and we just stopped for a good 15 minutes to marvel (and take photos!). Absolutely incredible experience. We opted to pay for a second sunrise game drive with the lodge the second day (Ingrid was happy to drive us around independently as an alternative). - and we were thrilled with our decision. We saw a few female lions following the trail of two wildebeest; had a close encounter with the infamous Amarula, one of the park's largest bull elephants; and saw a cheetah relaxing with her two cubs. After breakfast, before our departure from the park, Ingrid took us on another drive and we continued to spot more animals. We also happened to be there on a Wednesday when the lodge hosts a braai (South African version of a BBQ) for dinner in the national park. There's a local group of students that performed choreographed traditional dances during the meal and we enjoyed a lovely glass of wine next to the large campfire. Would definitely recommend attending if it works with your schedule. Ingrid is so thoughtful and truly took care of everything - from bringing us apples and beverages for the car ride from the airport to National Park, to arriving early to save us seats in the lodge game drive vehicle, to providing binoculars so we could spot animals in the distance, to her patiently waiting as we took our thousandth photo of the same zebra - we were left with the perfect stress-free trip! Thank you so much for such an wonderful and unforgettable experience, Ingrid!

Based on embassy Coronavirus updates, we cut our trip short, effectively having to cancel our upcoming 3 day safari in Kruger National Park. This was an awesome last minute opportunity given we had a full day before we left for the U.S.A. Ingrid is an awesome tour guide sharing her knowledge of the area's mining history, events and knowledge of the park. Seeing animals in their most natural state was an awesome experience. Our guide was smart & shared details about the animal kingdom as we moved throughout the park. The weather was beautiful, comfortable and sunny! Everyone should experience a safari!!

Ingrid provides the most fantastic two day tour! She met us early in the morning and headed for Pilanesberg while she told us about the area and the Reserve. We were delighted to see many animals,birds, etc. She knows where to go to see the maximum number and types of animals. We saw three of the "Big Five" almost right away. The Lodge which she recommended was fantastic. Ingrid's extensive knowledge of the area and all of the animals made the entire trip extremely enjoyable. Ingrid cannot do enough to make the trip most memorable. We would highly recommend Ingrid's Safari to anyone who wants a memorable experience.
