A very welcome greeting from the owners. It felt like we were in an extended family. My lodge unfortunately had problems with air condition but the owners gave me a free game drive the next day. Food was very nice. Local produce and menu.

The accommodation was spacious, very clean, and the beds were very comfortable, excellent...

After reading the reviews I was quite enthusiastic about staying here but my feelings soon turned to disappointment. I was not sure whether it was a wind up that there were buffalo loose but there was definitely no fence between the 2 rhinos that we saw and our accommodation. Some people might find that exciting - we didn't as the...

Stayed here for 5 days as part of tour group before travelling to Cape Town. This place was amazing. The rooms were of a good standard and as previously mentioned the lack of tv is great as you spend more time in the main bar area each evening. The food was great and no-one ever went hungry - it was...
