“Best lodging I have ever experienced worldwide ”

I am notoriously a snobby traveller. I’m not proud of it, but I have had to accept it 😉 That being said, we usually stay at a Ritz Carlton or some other reputable brand, but the AM Lodge puts even the Ritz to shame. It’s as if this place could read my mind and incorporate everything that a germophobe, picky, hungry, foodie traveller could dream of. From the clean blankets put on every seat in the jeep for hygiene, complimentary laundry done daily, spotless and HUGEEEE rooms that are most gorgeous I have ever seen with outdoor and indoor showers, to the custom meals cooked daily by the best chef- it’s a dream. There are only 8 villas on the premises so the experience feels intimate and customized. As you see the beautiful animals your amazing and insanely knowledgeable guide will stop and serve you coffee and rusks in the middle of the park during morning rides and wine and bar snacks at the evening ride while you watch the sunset. It’s those details coupled with the most gorgeous premises that will guarantee a perfect stay.

“Fantastic Lodges, with brilliant staff”

Apologies for adding this so late, we were a group of 6 staying at AM Lodge on a work incentive trip. We could not have been looked after any better, the staff went out of their way to ensure that each and every one of us had an amazing time. We were so lucky to see the lions on both reserves, but the highlight was seeing a leopard. Our nightly drives and gin and tonic/beer stops were perfect.
The rooms are literally mind-blowing, massive lounge area, bedroom with indoor and outdoor showers, the food was superb and we even had a display of African dancing which finished off our trip perfectly. Our guide Solomon with his spotter Prince made sure we got to see the big 5, as well as spotting tortoise, chameleon and even a porcupine and I must say a huge thank you to Conference for looking after everyone and ensuring we never had an empty glass. Thank you for making our stay so wonderful

“Fantastic villa ”

Could not praise this villa more, fantastic hospitality from the moment you get there, the food was sublime, they really cater for you and make the holiday experience truly blissful and personal, special thanks to Sean and the rest of the staff at the villa for making the trip memorable. We stayed in the villa which was massive but having toured their other rooms can only describe their suites as small villas in their own right, the suites seem newer in decor but the villa is larger, comes with a private driver and private chef, some points to note they only have 3 of the big 5 in their reserve but do offer a drive to a big 5 reserve nearby so you can see all the big 5, the spa is very nice and free credit to use there if you stay in the suite only, they charge extra for mocktails which you don’t find out about until the final bill, so not fully all inclusive in that regard.

“Just perfect on all aspects”

It is not easy to book a safari holiday with 3 young kids, we were happy to have the privilege to spend 4 days at the AM Villa. Stunning facilities in the middle of a wonderful wildlife reserve, with such a great team to take care of us! The food is fantastic, and they did everything needed, we just had to relax and enjoy. The safari tours are perfectly organized as well, with 2 additional trips outside the private reserve to see the bigger elephants and rhinos. Many thanks to Tessa, Given and the team!
I forgot a valuable item in my room when I left, the AM Lodge organized someone to bring it back to the airport in Jo’burg when I left the country. This is not the kind of service you can easily expect from a resort. I can only recommend it.
