“What a wonderful setting.”

We occupied a more formal lodge rather than the canvas offering. It is beautifully appointed and set in the bush with wildlife all around. We experienced four safari trips both early morning and mid-afternoon and saw almost everything on offer with the exception of the lions. They had probably made a kill and were sleeping it off away from prying eyes. The central dining, lounge and pool facilities are very comfortable with breakfast, snacks and dinners all of excellent quality. The scenery in the reserve is wonderful as it includes open grassland, an escarpment, a river and lots of bush. Be prepared to wrap up for the safaris as the open top land cruisers are very draughty.

“Amazing!”

We stayed here at the end of our honeymoon. We really enjoyed the experience. The lodge was lovely with gorgeous rooms and a nice communal space. Janco was our ranger and he was brilliant. He was very friendly and so knowledgeable. The drives were great fun and we saw so many animals. We really had a great time and it was the perfect way to finish our honeymoon.

“Fabulous!”

We stayed for three night and had six game drives – our excellent ranger, Wonga, even managed to find lion footprints on the track in a misty morning so that we were able to observe four lions meandering along the road in front of us!
We also saw many other species including elephants, giraffes (who also turned up at the lodge), buffalo, rhinoceros and zebras. Food and lodging were imaginative and organisation was impeccable. Trip of a lifetime – visit – now. You will not be disappointed.

“Awesome Elephants!”

Fantastic lodge with brilliant staff and a perfect place for peace, tranquillity and game drives. Wella was incredibly helpful and Janco, our game drive guide, most obviously lives for his animals and was passionate, conscientious and knowledgeable about all of them – from the humble Leopard Tortoise to the magnificent elephants. Being surrounded by the herd one quiet evening is something we will never ever forget. An excellent stay made the more enjoyable by all the staff. Food was lovely and the accommodation exceptional.
