My wife and I had a wonderful experience at Ximongwe safari camp. Ronele and Johannes are great hosts, with a lot of experience to share and nice contact. The concept is a very private place in the middle of the reserve, where dinner is with the hosts and guests. It is advisable to book activities in advance but no need to plan too many because it was also great to relax in the lodge and watch the animals coming to the pond.
The food was excellent. Really.
Worth spending three nights or more!
Thanks again so much for everything.

We spent a great time in Ximongwe! The house is big, very well equipped, near the river (crocodiles), with pool and fireplace. The warthogs are comming !The staff is really nice and the dinner (on request) very fine.Johan, owner and guide, is a kind and interesting person (and a passionate photographer). We appreciate the time on the safaris very much. Thank you !

We have just returned from a 6 night stay at Ximongwe Safari Camp; what an amazing experience! Johan and Ronell are exceptional hosts who made us feel part of the family. Ronell's cooking is incredible and we so looked forward to chatting over delicious breakfasts and dinners. Johan is a treasure-trove of knowledge of the African Bush and was happy to answer our many questions and share his love of wildlife. The Safari Camp has been beautifully and lovingly built. The viewing deck was our favourite spot - whether it is was on the pool loungers in 30+ heat or wrapped up in blankets when the temperature dropped. We spent many happy hours identifying birds and watching the game that come to the waterholes to drink. It was a real treat having elephant visiting three times. The tree-tents were fantastic and it was very special being able to lie in bed at night and listen out for the hyenas and lions. Our children will categorically tell anyone that this is the best family holiday we have ever had! Johan and Ronell - thank you for your warmth and friendship and giving us a truly memorable holiday.
