This was our first safari and it was brilliant. Beautifully furnished "tents" and stylish lodge but still retaining a natural feel to it all. Excellent food and service. We saw lots of animals on the game drives thanks to the expertise of our ranger Janco. All in all a great experience which I would highly recommend!

Our lodge was very spacious and well appointed. Our ranger (Jon) was very knowledgeable and we were able to see all the animals over the two days of our stay. We were a little disappointed with the food as there was a limited menu choice for dinner and very basic lunch menu with no salad or fruit. Not what we...

We loved the game lodge and our room. There was. a super ambience especially at night when candles and fires were lit. The food was great and staff very friendly and helpful. We had an excellent ranger in Jono. Perhaps there could have been the option of a brighter central light in our rooms.

We had a wonderful time at the Game Lodge with friendly, cheerful and helpful staff making us feel very welcome.

Fantastic stay at the Hlosi - our ranger Lucky was exceptional we saw most of the animals and he had a knack of being in the right place at the right time to get a great view - highlight being the pride of lions.

This place is about the animals so best start there. The tours are twice a day (6am & 4pm) & last 3 hours each. You're driven in a jeep which seats 10 with open sides for good views. We saw elephants, rhinos, giraffe, zebra, lions, Cheetah, monkeys, warthogs, Springbok, Kudu & loads more. N.B this is not about petting these...

An excellent example of a game lodge with extremely friendly and efficient staff. Much of the accommodation is in high quality 'tents', although they scarcely merit the name being furnished with all conveniences one would expect in a hotel room, including toilet facilities, bath, outdoor shower, air conditioning, mini bar etc. There was some disturbance to sleep from the flapping...
