From our first contact with Danni at Gap Tours the service provided was first class. On our first day we were picked up by Gavin who would be our guide for the next 3 days. Immediately we were impressed by Gavin's knowledge of the area and general people skills. The modified safari vehicle that was our transport was almost brand... More

Thank you Edward of Gap Tours and Transfers for an amazing Panorama Tour of South Africa. Unlike most guides, you took the time to walk us around at the various sites, point out interesting exhibits and explain the history behind the spectacular views. 5 star service!

Staying close to Kruger Park there are lots of safari options.

Breakfast and lunch stops are made at good rest camps, water is provided and you get around 10 hours out in the park. Whilst... More

GAP Tours driver Edward Themba took us to Endangered Wildlife Project, Cheetah Project and a full day safari in Krüger Park. It was amazing. Not only did he share all his knowledge... More

Edward Themba greeted us right off our flight with a smile and ready to assist with our baggage. Mind you this is after we had a delay of our flight. He was genuinely concerned in our timing and arrival to our lodge as he did not want us to miss out on our 1st game drive. During the course of... More
