        Amazing experience
        We chose Kruger get away safari because they were the only ones that accepted babies (our son is 8months) and Gerrie seemed very nice and used to have families. Well Gerrie we found out he was way more than that! Amazing guide, did everything for us to have a good time, see almost all big 5, felt safe even with the baby. I definitely recommend if we wanna have a good time with a pro, learn about Kruger parc and all its animals. Amazing experience! Definitely recommend. Bonus; he is on time, shares pictures I mean what else would you want

        Gerrie the Kruger Guru
        We had a fabulous safari! Gerrie is very knowledgeable about the fauna and flora in the park and is a great spotter. We feel exceptionally privileged to have seen such a variety of animals. Highly enjoyable day and can highly recommend Gerrie for a Kruger Park Safari. You will definitely see us again 🤗

        Magic in the air
        The Kruger National Park to me is always a magical experience - no two days are the same and you’ll observe things that you cannot encounter anywhere else. When you thought that the experience cannot get any better you up the ante with a knowledgeable passionate guide that goes above and beyond to make the experience absolutely unforgettable!! Gerrie brings his all every day to ensure that guests can immerse themselves in the safari adventure. I highly recommend Kruger Gateway Safari’s for an unforgettable encounter with one of South Africa’s major attractions. *** the cap is a very special concession***

        Amazing Safari
        My wife and I went on a 4 day / 3 night private Safari with Gerrie. The weather was unseasonably cool but he was still able to find so many animals including the big 5, the ugly 5, and the small 5. It was very nice that he could get tips from other guides on where to see specific animals each day. He picked us up from the Kruger airport and arranged all our overnight stays in the park….made the whole trip easy and seamless. Every effort was made to ensure we had a comfortable trip, including breakfast items, water, juice, and a few adult beverages rages for the evening! He knows a lot about the animals, the park, and South African history. We would definitely use him again and hope to bring our kids back someday. Thanks!

        We had a great half day safari tour 🦒 Heeri was so nice and welcoming. He have a lot of knowledge and it was interesting to hear. He really make an effort that we will see as much interesting animals, and we did. It was amazing, we saw some wild dogs- super cool and we had lucky and we saw a leopard on a tree with an impala he just hunted 🐆. For all the time Heeri was nice enough to take some very good pictures of everything we was witness to and send us in the end of the day, we had the time to really enjoy the moment and be free from trying take a good pic. One of the best experience in South Africa 🇿🇦. Highly recommend it 🦓🦒

        Amazing experience! Book with Gerrie!
        I cannot say enough wonderful things about Gerrie and our morning drive. He went above and beyond to locate animals we wanted to see and was great about pointing out the smaller animals and birds we might have missed. He also brought a camera with him to take pictures too so we could take a break from behind the cameras/phones and really enjoy living in the moment. I really appreciated that. Gerrie is so knowledgeable and took time to answer questions and explain about the animals and was so patient with our kiddos. Book a trip with Gerrie, you won't regret it!

        We had an absolutely magical safari with Gerrie ! He is so knowledgeable and went out of his way to make it the best safari experience for us . In less than 4 hours we got to see the Big Five . I would highly recommend Gerrie and wish we had booked a full day safari with him .

        Kruger Park Safari Tour
        Incredible way to begin our vacation in South Africa. Our tour guide picked us up at our lodging and had nice warm blankets ready for the cool ride to Kruger National Park before sunrise. He catered to our likes the entire day and accommodated all of us photographers extremely well. We saw almost all of the big five as well as many other phenomenal animal sightings! He also gave us great advice for when we drive the park on our own. Gerry was extremely knowledgeable about the park and all off the flora and fauna. Thank you for making our day so special!!

        Perfect half-day safari.
        Amazing experience in Kruger. Our driver Gerrie was spot on, we managed to see the big 5 and a wild dog in just the first three hours and four of them we saw them al least twice, plus many other good sights. He gave us a lot of interesting information, was always very fun and timed perfectly the stops and distances taking into account our plans and interests. He also took very nice pictures and videos of most of the animals we saw with his camera and sended them to us afterwards. We can not ask for anything else. The vehicle was really confortable and Gerrie brought water bottles and really warm blankets for the early morning cold.

        Delightful!
        What a wonderful experience, start to finish! We booked two half-day safaris for a family reunion. Throughout, Gerrie was extremely professional yet light-hearted, with clear and prompt communications, terrific organization, warmth, humor, and an excellent way with children and adults of all ages. He taught us a lot about the animals (including many birds, which were of special interest to one of us) and the park, and he went out of his way to ensure we had a great trip. His colleague, Cameron, was also a complete delight. We all loved both of them and our time in this magical place! Thanks for taking such good care of us.

        This was our second trip with Gerrie. Such an amazing experience and outing with the family. Ideal for young kids as it is private and exclusive just for your family. We again had such a good experience! Gerrie share so much knowledge and really makes it a day to remember! We can recommend Kruger Gateway Safaris.

        An Experience of a lifetime
        On the last day of our 7 days vacation to South Africa, we decided to take one last safari trip, so we booked a morning safari with Mr. Gerrie, this was our fourth safari ride on this vacation and by this time we still weren't able to see any rhinos or leopards, anyways, we were ok with that especially with knowing how rare their sighting is. And guess what, on this morning safari we saw a pack of wild dogs, a leopard with his impala carcase, and a group of 4 rhinos crossing the road right in front of us, we just couldn't ask for a better good bye from Mr. Gerrie, this day will be stuck in our mind forever, thank you Mr. Gerrie.

      I can highly recommend Kruger Gateway Safaris by Gerrie Smit . I used this company for full day tours . The price was very good compared to other similar companies and Gerrie was an amazing guide ; had much knowledge about Kruger , trees , animals ,birds , plants and history . He had a professional and very polite behaviour and I felt very valued as a guest. And I appreciated his attitude to safety first while driving around and beeing among animals . I will for sure use this on my next Safari trip to Kruger .

      We had a wonderful safari adventure with Gerrie in Kruger National Park. Not only did we see the Big 5, we saw Wild Dogs and a rare Honey Badger sighting!! Even though animal sightings are not a guarantee, Gerrie uses all of his tricks to show you as much as possible. He's a great guide for photographers (and amateurs like myself) because he knows photography angles well, and will move the vehicle to get you in a better position for that perfect shot! I highly recommend letting Gerrie guide you through the massive KNP since we did a self drive and there was no comparison. Do yourself a favor and book with Kruger Gateway Safaris!!

      On 23/12/20, Gerrie have us a game drive in Kruger National Park of a lifetime. Commencing in the morning and ending at the end of the day, the tour will certainly be etched in our minds forever. He was absolutely professional, he outperformed his and our own expectations as be hunted down all key animals, the big four and many more. He is exceedingly patient, he would give us insights about each animal, bird, etc. He knows his job very well. He also knows the history of the park itself and probably every key facet thereof. One other impressive thing about his is, he is a consummate team player. He would direct fellow game drivers to sites of his animal sightings. I thought this was very impressive. He is a great ambassador for the park overall. My family was amply taken care of and he ensured that we were always comfortable. Please pass our regards to him please. He is simply the best.

      Just back from a fantastic full day with Gerrie. This trip was first organised for June 2020, then covid hit, we rolled the trip twice in 2021, then again to 2022….now. All the time, communication with Gerrie was top notch and we felt to be valued by him.
      Finally the day arrived.
      From the before-sunrise start it was great humoured, and a day where the hours just flew by. We really had great sightings and knowledgeable insights, from the teenager leopard to the multiple elephant bulls, and all between.
      Given that the park is so lush currently, and the game dispersed, we had excellent sightings.
      Gerrie is a perfect host and we so look forward to rebooking for 2023 again, where we’ll keep an eye out for the walking barbecues (!). Thankyou Gerrie, a perfect day

      This was my 4th visit to Kruger but never have we ever experienced the Park the way Gerrie has done it. His knowledge not only of the animals but of the flora has educated us on things that we did not know. His patience and sense of humor made our journey a memorable experience. We have such a beautiful country and a man of this stature has forged a relationship between  my country  and I. I highly recommend  Gerrie should u ever want an experience to remember and cherish. Well done Gerrie ..God Bless you always.

      This was the first ever safari for me and my family. Gerrie made it so interesting that even after 9 hours of driving through Krugger we were still all smiles. He knew everything from history of the park, to indigenous people, plants, and animals. We spoke about everything. He knew where to go in the huge park to give us the best shot of spotting different animals including the big five. Unfortunately we only saw 3 of the big five but we were fully satisfied. As foreigners, we felt at home with him. I paid Gerrie upfront for the safari trip and hotel accommodation and he handled everything. We had a very good hotel with great food. I would recommend him any day.

      This was our second trip with Kruger Gateway Safari's and as the 1st trip was, was this one. One word can describe it. Memorable. The team of Kruger Gateway Safaris show exceptional service, they are friendly and they accommodate your needs. At the start of the trip we can say what we want to see and Gerrie goes out of his way to show us. We know its not always possible as the animals aren't always in eyes view, but the experience and the knowledge that we leave with after every trip is most definitely worth while. We cannot wait for our next visit as we are sure it will be just as memorable. Thank you Kruger Gateway Safaris for your exceptional service.

      We had great expectations and oom Gerrie delivered! We started with a cheetah sighting and the day just got better from there on! We saw 4 of the big 5 and even 3 fish eagles. Oom Gerrie was great with our children, very patient and kind. He has alot of knowledge and eagerly shared what he knows as well as what we saw with others. He went out of his way to give us a great Safari trip, he went well past the required time and he is not at all in a hurry to finish the day. He took great care of us, made a few pitstops so we could strech our legs and had cold drinks available throughout the day. He has an amazing persona and made this day special for all of us! I would recommend him to each and every person who wants to experience the Kruger- thank you oom Gerrie! This day will forever be ingrained into memory!!!

      There are no words to describe our experience at Kruger with Gerrie.
      Gerrie has a very proactive approach and got in touch with us beforehand to make us aware of weather forecast, what to bring etc ...
      On the day, he was punctual and made us feel comfortable as soon as we met him.
      During the game, Gerrie shared his knowledge and taught us so much about Kruger and its habitants, always took the time to appreciate the sightings and went above and beyond to make sure we had the best day.
      What we also liked about Gerrie is his love and passion for what Mother nature has to offer. One example out of so many is his reaction when we saw the rhinos. It just said it all, and as nature lovers ourselves, it meant so much.
      Gerrie also takes pictures with his camera and shares them with his clients and that's a real bonus. The pictures are awesome !
      Thank you ever so much once again, Gerrie. It would not have been the same without you.
