We could not ask for a better start to our honeymoon and our married life together. From the great food to the awesome quad game drive with a picnic, all was wonderful. As food lovers, animal lovers and people lovers we enjoyed all of what you had to offer. Love love love.

We book one night + one game safari 4*4. 1) the lodge Nothing really amazing. A big building offering a small view on the garden. The accommodation is not exciting neither, pretty basic for the price (1990 rand - 117€). Honestly it is the worse quality/price accommodation we experienced during our staying. We had a barbecue for 500 rand (30€)...

We had booked for two nights with a 50% deposit. We were shown to a building with rooms in a block of six, four downstairs, two upstairs. Our so-called "villa" comprised one of these rooms, a partitioned seating area a bedroom area and a shower room. The kitchenette was in the bedroom area so earplugs needed to drown out the...

A truly exceptional place. The rooms are basic, but very typical african style. The real kick in this place are the animals. The wart hogs sleeping every night on the sofa in reception are a very unique thing as well as the meerkat in the breakfast room with a view to a giraffe. I highly recommend to do a guided...

Friendly warthogs that wanted to share our chalet and a gorgeous meerkat that the kids fell in love with made this an unforgettable experience. The setting was perfect and the accommodation very comfortable despite the wild theme and authentic feeling decor. Quad-bike safari was a real treat with Malcolm a friendly and passionate guide.

Stayed here for one night in February at had a great time at this well-appointed game lodge. The chalets are small but quaint, with a braai on the patio out the front, which is lovely to light up with a few drinks and watch the stars in these peaceful surrounds. We also did the quad biking for two hours with...

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights in January. This is not a 5 star game reserve with the big 5, but it's a magical place to stay with a meerkat, 2 warthogs and a 3-year old giraffe who are very friendly! Also the quad bike safari is wonderful. Also, Zane, who manages the place, does a great...

Great experience! Will recommend them to all. The staff are like old friends and our guide was so knowledgable. We were treated to a mini picnic halfway through our quad bike trip. Cutest thing ever the Meetkat and the two warthogs sleeping on the sofa. We didn't sleep over but will stay here on our next visit
