From the moment we arrived at the Lodge we were happy. The staff were all excellent, Hennes the head guide was fantastic with exceptional knowledge and passion for his job. He skillfully guided us to view lions, cheettahs with cubs, giraffs, rhinos, hippos, kudus, cape buffalos, wildebeasts, and much much more including many species of birds. The food was out...

Abri is up there with the BEST rangers I've experienced. He really explained things to the guests adding a great deal to the game drives. Hannes, too, was excellent at the reptile centre, coping with some rather rowdy children yet still informing us about the snakes, crocs and tortoise. All the staff were friendly & helpful. We stayed in the...

I decided to book a weekend getaway as a bonding trip for my mother and myself, since we have both always wanted to go to a game reserve this seemed like the logical option. To sum it up the experience was better than we ever imagined! We arrived the Friday afternoon and were greeted by one of the guides, Tim,...

I spent one night in a chalet. The room was private with a somewhat obstructed view of the valley. The game drives were the highlight of my stay. After we returned from our evening drive, there was a bonfire with sherry or hot chocolate. That was a very nice touch. I wish the morning drive would depart a little later....

Our first ever visit to South Africa. We wanted a sample of everything, and didn't have time to travel to the large game reserves in the North, but this provided a fantastic mini safari. The accommodation was authentic, secluded and views fantastic. Game drives dawn and dusk, and the guides were great. Managed to get great sightings of all the...

I spent 2 nights here and really enjoyed it. We had 4 game drives - morning and evening and they were great. Our guide, Lisa, was great! She knew her stuff. We were able to watch a cheetah hunt and chase after a springbok (didn't catch anything) but watching the process was very cool. We saw lions, elephants, several type...

We stayed for one night and did one evening and one morning game drive. The guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and we got to see everything we were told we could see. The little cabanas are fine, the restaurant dinner and breakfast were excellent. I think the comments saying that this is not more than a drive-through zoo are...
