Philip and Ingrid van den Berg, Heinrich van den Berg

The vastly popular Self-Drive series now includes a brand new volume on the Pilanesberg.


HPH Publishing presents the brand-new Pilanesberg Self-Drive. Its much-lauded trademark route ratings, maps and historical detail are just some of the elements that have made its predecessors, bestsellers Kruger Self-Drive and Kgalagadi Self-Drive, so very popular.

The book is designed to make enjoying the Pilanesberg Game Reserve to best advantage an absolute breeze. The tips are well thought- out, and concise yet informative. Even the experienced Pilanesberg lover will learn new information about this fascinating park, its vibrant past, and how best to travel it today.

As with all books, it features the beautiful images of award-winning photographers Heinrich van den Berg and Philip and Ingrid van den Berg. The splendour of these images will be appreciated by longtime fans of the van den bergs and surely draw in a new following opf inspired readers.

Pilanesberg Self-Drive - another book for all who love wild places. 

Author Biographies

Philip and Ingrid van den Berg have been visiting the Park on a regular basis since the early seventies. They have seen the Park in green and grey years; experienced the growth in tourism and rejoiced in the many new developments. Over the years they noticed the changes in visitors’ attitudes – simply ticking off names on a tick list is no longer enough. People want to know more, share more, understand better. The urge to capture special moments and the magnificent wildlife on digital devices is increasing. Local and international photographers now make the Kgalagadi one of their preferred destinations. Visitors no longer want to merely see, but also wish to understand and experience the “big picture”.

Ingrid was responsible for the embroidery of the pattern – doing further research and writing the text. With her B.Sc. (Honors - Zoology) degree, which includes Botany and Entomology, she was well-equipped for this. Both Philip and Ingrid contributed their photography. Philip ran the library and ensured that the pictures were selected, edited and at hand. With his extensive nature knowledge, he checked the text and provided excellent input. His background in Environmental Education, for most of his professional career, was invaluable.

Heinrich van den Berg owns HPH Publishing ( He has successfully published over 30 books with the involvement of Philip and Ingrid. He has chosen a life as professional wildlife photographer, film-maker and publisher, enjoys creative writing, and offers photography workshops.

I love these books. Bought them to get more information and ideas. Only use them now and no other map books. Lovely illustrations. Beautifull put together. Well done.

Definitely a Must Buy to have before you travel

Such an awesome book with great insights to everything you want to know about the Park and very up to date, offering great route options and a decent history of the park. We are also birders so loved the bird section giving a wide range of possible sightings in the park. Absolutely fantastic! Highly recommended. Thank you too, for the prompt delivery service.

Exceeded expectations tremendously!

Firstly, the delivery experience was really efficient. It actually went out for delivery much quicker than anticipated. More importantly, the book itself was very content rich. I was expecting something that was filled mostly with photos with some additional info, but the amount of information is impressive. Of course the photos are absolutely amazing, but it will take me a couple of weeks just to read all of the material. Something to treasure for years to come. I'll keep it on display as a coffee table book as well.
