“Kruger National Park with Outlook Safari”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

On a last minute whim we wanted to go to South Africa and visit Kruger National Park which is highly recommended. I contacted a number of safari organizations to take us from Johannesburg and wanted the 3 day, 2 night excursion. I chose Outlook Safari's as the service they gave was outstanding! It was organized by email, Robert whom I was in contact was efficient, helpful, polite and full of information and had all my answers in no time.
Outlook picked us up from our hotel in Joburg and Willie, Kylie, Aderto and all the rest were skilled, pleasant, patient and great informative guides! They are great cooks as well :-)
I have no hesitation in recommending Outlook Safari's.

“S. Africa with Gate 1 Travel”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

Our journey started in Joburg, with Gate 1. Our 12 day tour took us through 3 safaris (Kruger Ntl Park) and a river cruise on the ST. Lucia Estuary. The thrill of seeing the animals in their natural habitat was phenomenal. The safaris were very comfortable, with only 9 passengers per open vehicle. We were given enough time at each location to view and photograph the animals. The drivers were very good at spotting animals deep in the plains.
This was our 3rd tour with Gate 1. The comfort and detail of each day was carefully planned. The coaches were very comfortable and not crowded. And best of all we had seat rotation so we all got to sit up front.
The hotels we stayed at were thje Protea chain of hotels. I have not seen the like in North America. The locations were excellent, and each one was so unique. The service was also excellent and the variety of food was good.
We had an excellent tour guide, Tessa Easingwood, and her knowledge of S. Africa was amazing. There was never a dull moment on the caoch or off. She also made sure that she looked after each of our needs, and that in itself was an amazing feat. Again we could not have enjoyed this tour without an excellent group of people on board.
We are totally convinced Gate1 is the way to go, and look forward to more trips with them.

“Drifters Game Lodge, Kruger National Park”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

We had a brilliant safari holiday and saw 4 of the big 5 animals plus, plus, plus. Fraser our guide was excellent, very knowledgeable,affable and a great driver. Gavin and Belle were terrific hosts. They made us extremely welcome. Our cabin was very clean and comfortable, the bed especially so after the long exciting days. The food was excellent quality and beautifully presented - well done Belle. Their staff, James and Isaac were very friendly and helpful. We wish we had stayed longer than the 3 days.

“True African Wilderness!”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

I joined a group of other 5 tourists and the game drive in Kruger was truly amazing. The park gives you a real feeling of an African wilderness. The Park scenery is fantastic. We spent the day searching for various animals. We saw herds of elephants, buffaloes, rhinos and lions among multitudes of small animals and birds. Our guide, Alex is a very intelligent young man, well informed about animals and birds in South Africa. I highly recommend this day tour in Kruger National Park to all those with limited time. However, it is also worthwhile to spend more time, if possible, in this great Park.

“Kruger National Park South Africa”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Definitely visit this park. Go with a tour group. We went with Smart Tours and our group got into 4 "trucks". You will get to see more since our 4 groups went in different directions and each group driver was communicating by radio so when an animal was sited the word spread quickly. We saw all the Big 5 of the park which is a rare thing. We got lucky and it was well worth it.
