    We had a nice time overall, despite being disappointed about the big five game drive promise. We really enjoyed the yellow 6km cycling/walking route. It's a paradise for adults but perhaps not the best for kids in terms of entertainment.

    Reviewed 13 August 2017 via mobile

    After two weeks in the bush seeing almost everything this reserve feels a bit like safari light. However the atmosphere is very relaxing, the staff is helpful and friendly and the food is really good. Pity they don't have proper double beds.

    Thank you for your review. It's unfortunate that you didn't get the safari experience you hoped for. Kololo is a private nature reserve with free roaming animals. Unfortunately, it's never able to determine where the animals are. Kind Regards, Kololo Game Reserve
