Incredible doesn’t begin to describe it! From the moment we were met at the airport until the moment we left it just kept getting better. The accommodations were outstanding. The highlight though of course were the game drives. All of our drivers were so extremely knowledgeable which allowed us to track and see all of the Big 5. Don was our tour manager and he just made everything seem so effortless although I know there was a lot of coordination going on in the background. It won’t be our last visit to Africa or our last trip with Gate 1....thanks for the trip of a lifetime!

The trip itself was TERRIFIC!! I'm not certain if all your guides in Africa are as knowledgeable as Jason Mair, but his command of the tour group and his knowledge ... When it came to the animals, he certainly knew his business and was able to assist us in getting the best photos because he knew, instinctively, what the animal's reaction was going to be in each situation.

Our trip was absolutely great. There was nothing for us to worry about. The organisational skills of the Tour Guide was exceptional. We enjoyed the trip so much that we have been actively promoting Gate1 as a travel agent. Now a word about our tour guide Stuart McMillan. Stuart is by far the best tour guide that we have ever had and I say that since my wife and I have travelled extensively since 2001... He was extremely friendly, knew his stuff, compassionate, thoughtful and above all just a great guy ... We wish we meet up with him again on future Gate1 trips. Great one Gate1, keep up the good work. Our group will definitely be back and we are currently looking at a trip to see more wildlife in Africa through your organisation in 2020.

He looked after all clients very well while keeping us on track throughout the tour - making sure that all facets of the tour went off without a hitch. The game drives were marvelous - got to see many examples of each of the big five as well as many other beautiful African animals. Learning about the changes that have taken place in South Africa over the past 20 or so years was a real learning experience - certainly an eye opener...Having said this I would highly recommend this tour - and Gate 1.
