Everything just special and funny. Accommodation at Fish Eagle fantastic. Bikes really enjoyable on the tracks even with a baby one on a baby seat. Horse riding and big five just behind the corner. Animals explained with passion. Just the wifi coverage not perfect from the chalets and the restaurant.

Didn't stay on the reserve but had a half day game Drive. It really was memorable. It is a huge reserve and we travelled through very different scenery . The highlight was our encounter with a herd of elephants. We had such a knowledgeable and reliable ranger driving us. Wonderful day ....saw lots of animals!

We had an amazing mini-break at Kololo although it could definitely have been longer! This is a wonderfully situated game farm - 3 hours from Johannesburg on pretty good roads, and bordering on Welgevonden which gives access to the big five. Kololo caters well to children and the child spent hours in the pool, in the children's play area and...

Very nice and clean lodge, the animals are right in front of your patio. The food and service were very good. You have the possibility to go on various game drives or explore the reserve by yourself. We did a fabulous biking trail, meeting all kinds of peaceful animals. A wonderful stay....
