We take our Safari in the world-renowned Kruger National Park with nearly 2 million hectares of unrivaled bio-diversity that is infused with historical, cultural and archeological heritage. The reserve has been internationally lauded for its contribution and vision to land and wildlife management, as well as its inclusive community engagement. Its a place of dreams for every traveller to South Africa. It's here that we embellish the classical Kruger Park Safari, where the story of the bush and all its characters is told and celebrated. We track and trail its wildlife, we share the stories of the old traders and rangers. We look with awe over the magnificent land and her cultures and heritage. We celebrate Safari and take you on the journey with us. Our Safari Style is a story-filled educational experience with a naturalists approach that is relaxed and unrushed. Our guides will take you on a journey through the wilderness focusing on the Big and Small and will also unpack the park's century old history and heritage. Unlike a typical tour with a set itinerary, our Safaris will take you to all of our favourite places exposing you to far greater levels of diversity than you would see on a self-drive. All our Day Safaris are flexible and are planned around your requirements. This is Safaria - the premium Kruger Park Safari.
Andrews love for the bush started with his first trip to the Kruger National Park as a 3 year old boy and that was enough to influence his life dreams for ever. Having grown up on a farm and spending most of informative years in the bush, his Schooling and University would see him go on to enjoy a successful 16 years in the Corporate world with big brands like Mercedes-Benz, Barloworld and AVIS. After 16 years it was time to head of into the wilderness and pursue his true love - the African bush. Having relocated from Johannesburg to White River, next to the Kruger National Park, Safaria was birthed and the dream became a reality. Andrews personal touch is the special ingredient in Safaria. As a qualified FGASA Field Guide,Trails Guide and Regional Birder, its really his hunger for information and the manner in which he shares it that draws his clients in.
Andrew is currently busy with his Advanced Guiding and Tracker Qualification as well as being a Savanna Biome specialist within the Greater Kruger National Park.
