"Fantastic book that covers the Kruger. I'd recommend this to anyone going and planning to do a self drive. A valuable asset."  


"One of the best books I've seen on Kruger complete with a brilliant map in the back showing all road numbers in Kruger, a must for any Kruger enthusiast."  

Kim Fowler  

"Great up to date book on drives from all camps with details on what you will most likely to see along the way. A good travel companion for planning out your days in KNP."  

Neil Kenny  

"Very happy with this, we are going in three weeks but have used the book to make a plan and book out accommodation in advance. We have marked out a lot on the map and plan to make good use of this when we are there."  

Lucas Klassmann  

"Very happy with the product, the quality and the professionism in communication and high standard of service. Nothing short of excellent!"  

Peter Alexander  


"Beautiful photos ,useful maps, indispensable descriptions of the routes. With this book you are well equipped for the Kgalagadi."  

Beatrix Vaubel  

"This book is the definitive publication on the KTF Park. It is informative, entertaining, factual, beautifully illustrated, entertaining and easy to read. It contains all the informatiin a first time vistor will need, yet it is at the same time a reference work for the seasoned and veteran KTF traveller. I take great joy from it during all the long nights between my frequent visits to the most spectacular and romantic park in the sub-continent. The book is well priced which makes it a fantastic gift to a close and dear friend."  

Koos M.  

"We love this book. We are going to the Kgalagadi in May and this book will be a huge help in finding our way around the park and seeing the best Kgalagadi has to offer. We were there last year and, after reading the book, realize how much we missed. As a matter of interest we saw the van den Bergs taking photos when we were there last year."  

Joy H.  

"We have just returned from Kgalagadi and the book was used daily to read the section we were travelling that day. It was informative and we loved reading the origin of the names of the water holes. We had the most amazing two weeks there and cant wait to go back with our book in hand. Just loved the pictures as well."  

Lyn Lambert  

"We are visiting the Kgalagadi the end of April and this book was an essential tool to plan our trip on where to stay and which routes to take. Without all the information available in this book it would have been difficult as first timers to the park."  

Hannes Wepener  

"Since buying the book, I’ve used it twice on trips to the Kgalagadi and found it exceptionally useful in planning and for general information. It’s a beautiful book. I’ve also recommended buying the book to numerous friends and colleagues who have both been to, and are planning to visit the park for the first time. Ten stars to the authors and production team."  

 John Fisher  

"I purchased the book in 2018. Not visited the park (yet) but found the book to be of excellent value and information. The quality is outstanding. Have already recommended to a couple of people who were very impressed with what I showed them and they have obtained a copy for themselves."
