Making dreams a reality

Kerry Balaam
Owner and Head Guide

Before doing her FGASA, Kerry was a swimming instructor however her passion for Africa's wildlife and having the privilege of living on the border of Kruger National Park inspired her to become a Guide taking guests on Game Drives in the Kruger National Park. After qualifying in 2010, Kerry did some freelance guiding. Her first solo drive was when she was asked to cover for someone at short notice. With limited experience and feeling very nervous Kerry was thrown in at the deep end but this did not deter her and a few years later Kerry started up Kruger Pride Safaris. Her vision was to create a small business that put the customer first and provided the best experience for her guests.

Kerry has fast gained the reputation as one of 'the top guides' in the area and her reviews are a testament to this.
