We had a great full day safari with Queintin as our guide. We were a family of four and had the vehicle all for ourselves. Queintin was very knowledgeable and always had Plan B and C in mind if A did not work. He made sure were perfectly placed at all good sightings, to get good pictures, he being a photo enthusiast himself. Some of sightings were indeed fantastic. We saw a lioness on rocks and as she got up and started walking down, Quentin was quick to move the right close to her path as she crossed the road and went into the bush.

Indeed, we had a very satisfying safari experience with Private Kruger Safaris!

I see a lot of forumers rooting for self drives instead of guided safaris. I also did some self drive too at Kruger and also enjoyed the experience. But a guided safari with a good guide has several merits. A good guide is better informed, more knowledgeable than inexperienced self driver so chances of quality sightings are much higher if you have a good guide with you. Also, instead of holding the steering, you could be holding your camera. The vehicles are customized for good view and the guides have walkie talkies and get to know of sightings quickly. I am convinced that guided safari with a good guide will definitely add value to your experience.

With Quintin as our guide, we had an amazing time from the get-go! He is very personable and has a big network to get info from other guides for the best sightings. He's knowledgeable and respects the park & wildlife.

Where the wildlife pops up and at what time is a matter of luck and this is important to remember for safari guests. However, it does take a trained eye to spot an animal which we would have easily missed several times over had it not been for Quintin.

I would highly recommend this company. Also, unlike several other bigger companies, we got more of a personalized safari tour which we highly appreciated.

Our family of five booked a private safari and had a fantastic experience -- due in most part to our guide, Quentin. He was engaging, knowledgeable, and his enthusiasm for the park and the animals was contagious. From the moment he picked us up to the end of the day when he dropped us back at our lodge, we all had a great time! Booking the safari was easy, there was plenty of great communication before we arrived, and everything went absolutely smoothly. I highly recommend Private Kruger Safaris -- and suggest you ask for Quentin!

My husband and I went on one full day safari and a morning safari with Quintin as our guide. I cannot recommend this company enough. This was our first time in South Africa and our first ever safari, and Quintin made it a wonderful experience. He was very knowledgeable and was familiar with the best spots to see animals. He also offered some great photography advice. You can tell he has a great respect for the animals in the park and knows how to read their behavior. On our safaris, we were fortunate enough to see the Big Five plus African Wild Dogs and an extremely rare sighting of a lioness with her cubs. :) Overall, a fantastic experience and we will definitely be using this company again on our next visit to Kruger. Thank you!

My wife and I just returned from a 6 day/5 night private safari and it was amazing. Bernhard and Hennie are true pros who absolutely love what they do. Their excitement made every special siting that much more meaningful.

Their knowledge for wildlife and photography was priceless. We spent a few days in Skukuza, Satara and Letaba and were lucky enough to see the Big 5, Magnificent 7 and so much more. Memories that will stay with us forever.

I would recommend them to anyone, this is the best way to experience Kruger Park. Cant wait to come back!
