We located Khakiweed Photographic Safaris on Trip Advisor and contacted Dave for a day in the Pilanesberg Reserve, a couple of hours outside of the city. Dave is personable, knowledgeable and it was a great pleasure to spend... More

Dave is a great guy and like to talk about everything. He makes your trip special. He knows we're to look for animals and knows all the stories about them. The nice thing is, you can use his camera with a very good telelens. I shot nice pictures. Thank you Dave for this on forgettable trip at Pilanesberg.

Dave was passionate about presenting these animals with interesting detail about their natural behavior in their habitat. Despite our novice camera skills, he offered us the use of one of his...

We had an memorable and amazing experience with Dave on the . The day safari lasted from a little after sunrise till sunset. We saw all sorts of animals and got a better sense of their personalities. Highly unpredictable and exciting. Dave is highly interesting and knows a lot about the animals and about South Africa too.

Dave was an excellent guide for us to the Lion Rhino Park outside Johanessnurg. He picked us up at our hotel and led us on exciting tour of the park. He is a wealth of worldly knowledge especially the South African people and culture.
