Cape Town, South Africa
Our family was able to take a relaxing game drive through Balule Nature Reserve in the Greater Kruger with Gert and Isabel. They were great hosts, showing us their favorite spots and letting us soak in the magnificent views along the way. We stopped to watch hippos splash in the dams and elephants wade across the river... There's absolutely nothing like driving through the wilderness on an open safari vehicle, and we'd go every day if we could! We'll be sure to return, and will be recommending it to anyone looking for that true safari experience. Thank you both for your hospitality and for enjoying a sunny afternoon and lovely evening with us!

One of the top travel experiences of our life! Gert and Isabel were the absolute best. Gert made sure we saw as much as possible and took us out on extra drives when he heard about sightings. One of those was when we'd gotten back from Blyde Canyon. Gert heard of a lion sighting and loaded us in the Land Cruiser. We ended up begin surrounded by a pride of 11 lions. Gert is the best. He's knowledgeable, personable and works tirelessly to make sure our experience was the best. Highly recommended!!

We iid 2 half day trips with Gert into the company's licenced area adjacent to Kruger park. On the evening tour,in December, we saw a lion feasting on his kill. We also visited the lodge that Gert and Isabel run in the concession from Kruger; if you want to sleep safely amid the African animals , this would be a great experience. Derek & Rebecca
