My wife and I were out on safari with Edward. He was an incredibly personable and knowledgeable. He was driving around Kruger determined to find us the big 5! We felt like we were in the best hands with him and couldn't have hoped for a better experience. There were so many times he spotted animals that my wife and... More

Staying close to Kruger Park there are lots of safari options. We prebooked Gap Tours from the UK and for £125 each we had two full day trips with an excellent vehicle and very knowledgeable guide/driver...Mandla. 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

My daughter and I were delayed by one day and Carol from GAP Tours were really helpful. She rearranged tours, guesthouses and even helped recovering our missing suitcase. 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

My wife and I visited as the last part of our first anniversary trip. We decided to book a private Peninsula tour to see the many sights of the area. We were promptly picked up by Edward at our hotel and we quickly learned that we were in awesome hands with him. It was a rather cloudy and rainy day... More

Good day, Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review. Your panorama tour is the perfect example of why Africa is the place to be.

When we landed in Kruger, we were picked up by the best guide ever, Manda, who would then drive us around in an awesome safari jeep for 3 days. Mandla was extremely knowlegeable and attentive to our wishes during the safari. I am very curious and eager to learn and when Mandla did not know an answer to my question,... More

My flight was rebooked to another airport and Edward from Gap Tours & Transfers escorted me 2 hours to my destination. Edward was probably the most helpful person I have ever met, calling ahead to my lodge to make sure I would make the evenings' game drive. He taught me a lot about not only the animals that we drove... More

We were picked up from Tanda Tula by Edward Temba and enjoyed an amazing trip through the Kruger to the Outpost in Limpopo. We had anticipated a long day's drive but it went in a heartbeat.

Good day Phil and Adele, Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a great review. I can’t tell you exactly how Edward spotted that leopard, but I can tell you that apparently he has built in binocular vision or eagle eyes as some say.
