The accommodation in a lovely private lodge suited our family of 2 adults and 4 children between 5-15yrs. It was lovely to have the outdoor plunge pool and gardens during the day for the kids to let off steam. The location and quality of accommodation is stunning. But the highlight is the staff. Starting with the Ranger, Eddie and the...

We stayed here for 3 nights, and whilst it was very good - we can't agree it was a 5. The rooms were a bit shabby and we wouldn't say they were luxury (which is a pity).

This is a must stay if you want to do safari in South Africa. Everything from the grounds, bungalows, food, location and staff are A++. Bianca isn't great hostess and runs a great lodge. Lydia is a fantastic chef and is the sweetest person in the dining room. Our Ranger (Peter) and Tracker (Sandy) are hands down, the best around....

Warm reception, very friendly staff (throughout the whole facility), and a wonderful location. The breakfeast included everything we desired, and also the dinners were greatly enjoyed by the whole family.
