We had a wonderful experience at Ximongwe lodge, really comfortable and beautiful house, stunning location just by the Olifant river.
The hosts Ronel and Johan are really great host and made our stays, diners, breakfast and trip the best!

A little plus we have been sooooo lucky so a leopard came to eat its dinner just by the window of the kitchen at night ( seriously not further than a meter away with the wall and window in between) / what a lovely spectacle. Without listing all the Giraffes, elephants, monkeys, impalas, crocodiles .. we saw from the terrasse.
Couldn't expect better experience for a first Big5 Safari.

Thanks again and we will come back !

Great spot, difficult to get there, but once there lovely by the river with the wildlife just walking through. The game drives, we did morning and evenin, were interesting with lots of info about all the animals, like Giraffes, Impalas, Warthogs, Bushbucks, Elephant at our front door, amazing. Great service and everyone is very friendly. Definitely need a car with high clearance like RAV4 as road in is rough and takes about 45mins from main road to property so remember all your food and drinks or pre order with properly. Will be back one day. Thanks guys
