Pieter Pretorius

With 7 years experience in the field guide industry and a life time of exploring, Pieter is a force to be reckoned with in the field guide circuit. Having grown up in the desert he is used to camping, 4 wheel driving and escaping black rhino on foot. This seasoned traveller mixes his passion for nature with photography. He loves to capture the moment and guiding has certainly presented many such moments. Pieter brings considerable talent and experience to the team. He is a top notch photographer, a guiding guru and one of the nicest guys you could meet……..a real legend!

Likes – driving a road he has never been on before.
Dislikes – green pepper.

I love the guided tours because I am blind and the running commentary gives me a better idea of the plants, animals, and terrain. So, I am disappointed when the sound is splattery or gone altogether as it was on the morning tour on May 2. I hope this will be corrected. Without sound, there is no great adventure for me.

Pieter, you make Africa come alive with your wonderful commentary on all the animals. You give the kind of facts that only comes of experience. Thank you for what you do. Also, thanks to Jan and Hayley for their great photo ops.

This is AMAZING!!! Although this may cause me to end up divorced because I am not going to bed till 4:30 am LOL.

Pieter, You are incredible! You give the viewers so much to look at and teach us so much about everything. We not only get to see the big animals that we have known about all our lives but, you also show us the little ones. The spiders, dung beetles, turtles etc and lets not forget the plants.

This is better then ANY wildlife program that is even on TV!!

Pieter, Nick, Jan, Hayley and everyone at the Djuma Game Reserve, I just want to say Thank you for sharing your world with us!!
