The hotel itself is set in a beautiful surrounding but this is by no way a 5 stars hotel. Staff at front desk and management over friendly in a very fake way. Food was very average but service at the restaurant was lovely. About the game drives- I should start with the fact that this is a private reserve so...

The first thing that I didn't expect was the 40km drive across a road that was at times no better that a dirt track, so when I arrived I was less than relaxed. However on arrival it all changed, a welcoming (soft) drink and a prompt transfer to the hotel complex and I was soon settled in my room ready...

First off - the journey to the lodge is down a dirt road. They tell you not to use GPS to get there, but I was able to pinpoint the exact location (be careful though) - verified it with Kuzuko before relying on it - and used that to get to Kuzuko from PLZ. Coordinates 33°12'49.7"S 25°29'40.9"E work in Google...

We stayed here for two nights at the end of our tour of SA and absolutely loved it, the lodges are well designed with all mod cons including satellite tv. The drives were great fun and our ranger Luke was very knowledgeable and made the drives really interesting. The park isn't one of the biggest but they have a good...

This place is set in another world, from the moment you set foot in the place it's magical. The staff and organisation is first class. We had two drives per day and although we were up at 5am we never missed a moment. We saw the big five and our ranger CF was extremely knowledgable and oozed confidence as well...

As stated in other reviews before: It is good to know this is a PRIVATE game reserve, meaning it's a contractual part of the Addo Elephant National Park, but it's basically a park within in park. Regarding the "big game", especially the Big5 this means (Feb 2017) 4 Lions, 1 Rhino, fewer elephants than Addo Elephant National Park, 1 Black...
