Pieter organised a great half day tour to Soweto at short notice for 4 of us who were attending a conference in Pretoria. He collected from the hotel, was punctual and extremely knowledgeable. He seemed to know lots of people in Soweto, so we knew that we were in safe hands. In particular, as we were a group of youth... More

We would highly recommend Pieter if you intend doing a tour from Johannesburg. We had a two day stay at the Bakubung Lodge last week and Pieter collected us from Johannesburg and drove us up to Pilansberg and duly collected us after our stay. He was very knowledgeable, spoke good English and had a great sense of humour. The car... More

This company is very hard to deal with. I emailed with Pieter for about 10 days prior to travelling to South Africa. Because I travel standby, I asked if a last minute booking would be acceptable. he said that it would. When I decided to make the booking, I gave him credit card information for a 50% deposit. We agreed... More

I must be very careful to say that the horrible experience that we had was not from the Bakunung Lodge at Pilanesburg, that place was wonderful, and will get a 5 star rating. My review is strictly based on our interactions with Pieter. First, he pushed our safari back a day once we landed in Johannesburg , and really inconvenienced... More

I am sorry to report that my group was quite offended by many of Peter's comments about Black people. One of the members of out group is Afro Carribean and repeatedly attempted to remind Peter of her African heritage but he did not seem to get the message. For example I do not beleive that "statistics" such as "90% of... More
