Great spot, difficult to get there, but once there lovely by the river with the wildlife just walking through. The game drives, we did morning and evenin, were interesting with lots of info about all the animals, like Giraffes, Impalas, Warthogs, Bushbucks, Elephant at our front door, amazing. Great service and everyone is very friendly. Definitely need a car with high clearance like RAV4 as road in is rough and takes about 45mins from main road to property so remember all your food and drinks or pre order with properly. Will be back one day. Thanks guys

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 !
