  • Thanks Ken for an awesome week of Hunting and experiencing the beautiful country of South Africa. It was a great and professional experience from the minute you picked us up at the airport. One of the things I appreciated the most was how selective you were with the animals, often passing up what I thought was a shooter to wait for a true trophy. I will be coming back with my son next year as it was an experience that I want to share with him. Thanks again, and will see you next year. - Don Halsey

  • What a place for the adventure of a lifetime. We booked our first African hunt with Ken and Elma and had an unforgettable trip. These two did all of the work and planning and we quickly discovered that we had to nothing to fo but relax and enjoy ourselves. We were able to observe many plains animals from zebra to giraffe in a natural setting and Gamka had some of the best package deals available. Our 10 day adventure ending we departed with new found friends that made us feel like family. Will see these two again. - John and Lisa Tucker, Florida, USA

  • Ken and the Gamka Safari Team provided a delightful, satisfying, relaxing, and awesome vacation and safari experience for us in late-May/early-June 2019. Ken helped us build an itinerary that exceeded our expectations.  With the abundance of animals and the skill of our team, our hunt was complete in two days. Our trip was very reasonably priced; private tour cost, day fees and animal prices were quoted very early in our discussions about the trip.  There are no hidden fees or surprises.  Contact Ken if you are interested—you’ll be surprised to find that Africa can be more affordable than prices we’ve seen for hunts in the USA. We are already thinking about a future trip to Africa…and there is no question who we will be contacting—Gamka Safaris. - Greg & Kathy Jerlinga, Hobart (Green Bay), Wisconsin, USA

  • Ken - once again thank you for an outstanding safari in the Eastern Cape.  All aspects from pre-trip planning, accommodations, professional staff, and especially the hunting exceeded my expectations. From my experience the whole trip was no hassle and enjoyable. I look forward to a return visit with my family in the near future. -Eric Sharar, Houston, USA

  • I cannot say enough about Gamka Safaris and the fine team at Gamka. From morning to night they went the extra mile to ensure my boys, my wife, and I had an awesome experience. In just a few minutes it was evident that we were in good hands and it was like being with family. My boys and wife were all at ease and enjoying the beauty and hospitality. Ken is like no one I have hunted or toured with before. His energy and commitment to excellence was on display during our entire safari from the time we were picked up at the airport to the time we were dropped off at the airport. The accommodations were above our expectations and the food was superb. The cooks even baked my son an unexpected birthday cake. The PH’s and trackers were fantastic and are now like family to us. We cannot wait to return to see Ken and his team at Gamka Safari so we can be with our new friends and enjoy the beauty and hospitality that is South Africa. If you are looking for a fantastic outfitter and friend then you must contact Ken Whiley at Gamka Safari. -Robb Leonhard

  • Gamka Safaris treated myself and my cousin, his wife and daughter like family. We enjoyed first class hospitality from Ken and his staff. During our stay we harvested exceptional Gemsbok, Steenbuck, Springbuck, Red Hartebeest and many other species. Ken and his guides and trackers were superb judges of trophy quality which allowed us to only harvest the best of the best. After our 7 days in the Karroo we enjoyed 3 days in beautiful Cape Town at Ken’s guest house where the food and accommodations were amazing. Thanks Ken for an unforgettable experience. -Ron Ingle, Wichita, USA

  • I just want thank you, Elma, and you staff for a truly awesome experience. It was everything myself and Paul had expected and more. From the accommodations, the food, and the hospitality and professionalism of you and your staff, everything was first class. Lets not forget the hunt. The opportunities for true trophies were endless. Paul and I were able to harvest everything on our wish list. At first I thought this was a trip of a lifetime, but after experiencing just a taste of what South Africa has to offer I know I'll have to come back. I am already starting a new wish list. Thank Again My Friend -Joseph P Corsi, Wisconsin, USA
