wow. we were astounded by service and hospitality of this small family business. Fortune and Loraine thanks so much for an amazing honeymoon experience. We enjoyed sunsets at pool deck. Went on bushman rock art activity and had amazing candle lit dinners. Hope to be back soon.

A special thanks to Hellen who...

This was our second visit with Lorraine and Fortune at the Makgabeng lodge, and we enjoyed it as much as we had a couple of years ago.
