Spent two nights at the lodge with another couple mid March. We stayed in the Rhino lodge which was totally outstanding. There are three lodges, all pretty much the same lay out, but with décor relating to the animal of their name. I believe Zebra had a Jacuzzi style pool instead of the infinity pool that rhino and buffalo had....

An amazing place with great team. From the minute we checked in the service was exceptional. We loved our suite and could see animals in the valley below. We stayed for 3 nights. We had 6 game drives with our very knowledgeable ranger Carrie Ann and tracker Paulie. They really do their best to ensure you get the most out...

We had a wonderful two night stay at Hopewell. Our high expectations were exceeded. On arrival staff were exceptionally helpful and attentive.

This private game reserve is indeed private. It is exclusively rented to one party. We therefore enjoyed 3 nights in perfect peace and tranquility in the wonderfully decorated Rhino Suite with amazing views of the reserve and a private pool and sundeck. The staff was incredibly attentive and friendly and the food was delicious. The game drives offered a unique...

an excellent game lodge!! I have visited other game lodges; this one excels in its personal touch and the staff being attentive to your every need. it is a game lodge that can only accommodate small groups. the facilities are wonderful and private. the game guides know their animals and surrounding areas very well!! this makes for excellent game viewing.
