Eswe, Annie, Kevin made this trip what it was. They were all incredibly friendly, knowledgable and hospitable. The facilities were amazing and so were the game drives but I can say that we made some friends for life there.

Thanks to them we were able to spot lions, elephants, rhinos, giraffes, colourful birds and even hipos and a crocodile.

We even saw a pack of 16 wild dogs which I'm told are one of the rarest sights in Kruger. James who is co-owner of the lodge did the drives himself, and was a very enjoyable and highly...
