We stayed at the lodge for 10 nights and we were treated from the beginning to the end. Sharmaine and Keith made us feel right at home, always ensured we are happy and that our drinks stayed full. Keith - " Ietsie vir die keël " Peet made the best food ever, from breakfast to dinner, I'm very sad to sit back at home and eat my normal toast and butter. Thank you to all the other staff that made everything else so special. We probably broke a Raptor's record by seeing lions on every game drive, Thank you from all the Steenkamps!

Dear Sharmaine and dear Keith! I know, I am a bit late. But better late than nothing. To be honest, we owe it to the pandemic that we got to know you. And it was such a great gift. We enjoyed our stay so much. The Lodge is BEAUTIFUL and the food is so delicious. Constance is a gem. But there is something else...Whenever you meet people, they burn for what they do you share the fire. It was a precious experience. I just read a review from an other german visitor and I started laughing. If we could we would be back in a minute. We can only recommend everyone to come to you and let yourself be carried away. Bitte, danke ... :-) Stay safe and take care Family Koch, Germany
