I spent a fantastic day at Pilanesberg with Heart Beats of Africa and was utterly captivated by the knowledge and passion safari guide Hendre, had for the animals we came across when on safari. After my Pilanesberg trip I was very keen to do another safari with Hendre and called him to expressed my desire to do a weekend safari at Kruger National Park, he planned and created a tailor-made safari that met all my requests. We camped at Kruger and boy does Hendre know how to camp! He supplied every piece of equipment necessary to make the experience as luxury as possible, and as an Englishman that hadn’t experienced a South Africa braai before, I was blown away by the standard of cooking that was delivered over a campfire. I requested to try some traditional South Africa meals, and that’s exactly what I received, I enjoyed meals such as ostrich steak and chicken potjie. During our three-day trip to Kruger we were lucky enough to see the big 5, I had expressed my desire to Hendre to see the big cats at Kruger, and experienced multiple extremely close lion sightings. With any safari, there is an element of luck involved in terms of the animal’s sightings, however Hendre’s extensive knowledge of the park and regular communications with other safari guides within the park, enabled us to track down the animals I most wanted to see. When I’m next in south Africa I know exactly who I will be contacting for a safari and I’m already looking forward to it! For holiday makers, volunteers or wildlife photographers interested in a South Africa safari, contact Heart Beats of Africa, you won’t regret it!

We had 4 fantastic days with Hendre as our guide. We visited Jessica the Hippo, followed by Blyde river boat cruise, Panorama route and finally one complete day in Kruger Park. Suggested accomodation was a treat and they put all efforts in making Valentine’s Day a fine memory. Thanks eKhaya Bush villa and Hendre for making that happen. Hendre worked hard giving us a memorable experience. Thanks from Kristina & Claes

Perfekt Day. Reliable and very friendly. We had a great day in Pilanesberg with wonderful sightings. He has a profound knowledge about he animals and the environment. If you want something special and stay away from ethical critical organizations like „walking with elephants“ and „lion parks“, he is the right guy.
