    This was a fun experience to learn about Elephants and play and feed them. They treat them so well. We got to see them play in the water

    OH, do not miss out on this in Hazyview.. I have been twice in 3 years coming from Australia, and made it mandatory to see big Tembo the huge Elephant again...Had an amazing Elephant experience.. The Guide that gives the talk is very knowledgable about all facets, you can touch the elephant and have photos taken , just an amazing experience to get up close and personal with these amazing animals. The Elephant handlers love these Elephants who are treated extremely well. Excellent visit, loved every minute.. Kids would just love this experience as well..

    We visited Hazyview on a recent trip to South Africa and was pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness and immaculate state of the animals.
    As for interaction, you cannot ask for better handlers and experiences with reptiles. We all faced some of our fears: letting a tarantula walk on your hands, holding a snake, holding an iguana and feeding lizards. What a special attraction!

    This was one of three cultural villages we visited. Each was very different, and interesting in its own way. We were able to speak (through an interpreter) with the chief and the Sangoma. As we were the only ones there, we could ask quite a few questions, and were able to clear up some misconceptions we had heard. The Sangoma showed us her medicines, and most of them actually have crossover into Western medicine. She also clearly indicated that people who are ill beyond her expertise are sent to the hospital. We learned a lot.

    Like all Kruger Park gates Phabeni Gate can be very busy early in the mornings of peak dates (weekends and public/school holidays. Our experience is that the staff are always cheerful and helpful--we carry Wild Cards which simplify the entry processes by not involving cash transactions. On many occasions we have encountered our first animals within a few kilometres of the gate but do remember that you are visiting their home so the animals be visible when they, and you, are in the same place--they are not there at your commend.

    A very discreet and private location, and we had a private tour with the owner of The Farm, which was the most personal and informative tour we have ever experienced!

    We saw more than just the crocodiles, as there is a sanctuary of wild birds that were flying overhead as well as coming down to feed and had their own haven.

    Mike was the Safari Guide.. wonderful, very experienced and extremely knowledgable.. he took time for people to take photos, explained the whys of everything. We saw Hippos in the water, many giraffe, alot of kudo and antelope, Elephants, many different animals. Early morning Safari is probably better than Sunset, but the sunset there is amazing. Recommended to take this Safari..

    Had an amazing experience with William at Kruger National Park. He is extremely knowledgeable about the Park and it's fauna and flora. In Just 4 days we saw the Big 5 and over 30 species of animals and over 130 species of birds. Some of the sightings were really once in a lifetime encounters. We came away elated. I would highly recommend experiencing Kruger with William.

    Awesome experience for the beginner.. Guides are knowledgeable and patient. Horses are amazing once u get over that initial fear of the unknown.. Fun for kids and adults.

    This small shop offers amazing quality leather goods. There's a small selection of bags, purses, wallets, belts and similar, made from cow, buffalo, crocodile. I spoke to the owner, learned about the way he sources his materials and makes his bags (they'll do custom! and ship! anywhere! :-) I bought a leather handbag I absolutely adore -- similar items could be found in gift shops in high end hotels for double and triple the price. Well worth the stop.

    Before: Booked 5 months in advance to ensure our dates were accommodated..... did not really think much about what the trip would hold as we've never been to KNP before.....

    After: Gerrie = A highly knowledgeable expert tour guide, who knows the park like the back of his hand, makes it his duty to ensure you have the best & safest wildlife viewing on the day, considering time and weather conditions.... takes the most amazing pictures of your trip and sends them to you afterwards.....

    My experience = I was left astounded by the beauty and peacefulness of the park..... and felt privileged to experience wildlife in their natural habitat.... very humbling..... serene environment...... was fully immersed in the experience.....

    Would I recommend Kruger Gateway Safaris to anyone wishing to visit KNP in future = 100%

    Keep up the excellent work Gerrie.... will definitely be back!

    We have just come back from a fantastic 3-day photo safari through the Kruger Park with Hennie and Bernhard. What an experience! The trip was postponed a number of times due to Covid but this was no issue for B1 Photosafari. As an inexperienced wildlife photographer, their willingness to share their knowledge on how to get the shot (photographically that is) made it easier to go home with a beautiful set images not only of the Big 5 but many other fauna and flora. Their knowledge of the veld was brilliant. The days were long, but full of banter and good humor. A trip that will not be forgotten.
    To Hennie and Bernhard. Thank you for a great trip, good humor and all your patients. True professionals.

    Drivers were always on time and the company (Carol) was easy to work with and easy to pay transactions.
