Our room was clean and well appointed with everything you need for an enjoyable stay. The rangers on the game drives were knowledgeable and went out of their way to ensure very good sightings of animals and nature experiences.

Hi, The booking for a Double room with Breakfast and Dinner does this include any free game drives? Also what are the food / drink options outside of these meals? - Anything near by? - Can a taxi be arranged from Tambo Airport to the lodge?
No free game drives...traveling can be arranged at reception. Awesome service

Hi, can you advise if all the room rates include 1 game drive per day and if that is listed in the booking as can't see it anywhere whereas on other websites it's clearly stated. With Thanks
I had a chalet for a week, and that does not include game drives which are charged for extra.

Hello, Can you arrange airport transfer from and back to OR Tambo? Is there one game drive included per day? Thank you
With money you can do anything, however, it is a 3 hour drive from OPR Tambo, so hire a car, it will be cheaper and give you some freedom too to get around sightseeing.

Hi. We're not staying at your lodge but are we able to make use of the restaurant please, as we've read such good things about it? If so, do we need to book? Is it possible to access the restaurant from outside of Pilansberg NP at night?
Suggest you book up front, the food is excellent and every time we ate there it was fairly packed. Unknown if you can access form outside, we stayed in the camp.
