Thoroughly enjoy this safari. People were friendly and got to see the wild animals. Saw most of the sites around Makutsi including Kruger Park, the Rondarvels, Blyde River Canyon and God's Window and had a great rondarvel to stay in during the trip.More

Iā€™m not sure if there are facilities to do your own laundry but we got ours done by the maids. It came back absolutely beautiful. Folded and ironed. What a treat šŸ˜Š

When you present for breakfast you need to speak to a staff member in the dining hall and order your lunch as it is extra so not difficult to organize and choice of meals is good and are very reasonable cost wise.
