    Excellent game-park. Staff very friendly, nice food. Lodges are perfect in a beautiful location. If you want the bigger experiece, book a game-drive to Welgevonden, i would absolutely recommend it. Be aware ; the last 29 km sand path , are partly very bumpy!

    Excellent 4 day stay and despite the rain it was lovely. Very friendly staff, well documented game drives, nice to be able to walk by yourself without predators in the surrounding. Welgevonden was close by and also vey interesting and good game drives.
