Reviewed 1 December 2016

Difficult to find initially as first trip to South Africa, beautiful scenery on the way.
Greeted warmly and full explanation of game drives and meals etc.
Lodges comfortable and clean .
Meals and staff all very enthusiastic and happy.
Special thanks to Dominic and Stephan who were totally dedicated to tracking down elusive wildlife, their enthusiasm was contagious. Night drives were exhilarating. Travelled as two couples age range 25 to 59, enjoyed by all and would highly recommend

Room Tip: All lodges good

An amazing place to stay, small, friendly and very relaxing. Comfortable individual lodges overlooking the dam which is frequented by your neighbors. Wild animals from the bush. Great trackers and guides. Special mention to Ensilin and Dominick. Their knowledge of not just animals but all aspects of life in the bush made our experience so much more than we could of hoped for. We were lucky to see the big 5 in the first 24 hours plus kills, Hyena pups and the very rare African Dogs. Dinning by fire light rounded the day off. Food was good and plentiful.

We have just returned from a 2-week vacation in SA, during which we stayed one night at Gomo Gomo. A pity we didn't stay longer! The place itself is beautiful; the bungalows are comfortable and the staff really is dedicated to making your stay as good as possible. The little attentions like the lights turned on when you come back at night plus the little story left on the beds were such great touches. I also found the meals to be good and plentiful.
The game drives themselves are an altogether different experience from self drives: the guides can go off track to get closer to the animals, which obviously is not authorized on self drives, and our guide Damien was clearly passionate about wildlife as well as really knowledgeable (and funny)! We took the time to watch an elephant trying to uproot 2 trees, I was impressed with the elephant's determination in achieving its goal!
All in all, it would be a pleasure to go back there!

We have recently returned from 4 nights at the Gomo Gomo, during our 2 week tour in South Africa, and what a lovely find. Very friendly welcoming staff, amazing trackers and guides, beautiful lodge and 'apartment' overlooking the lake, lovely food and excellent wildlife viewing.

Our 'room' was a lodge in it own right with very spacious sleeping area, large bathroom and an enclosed verandah overlooking the lake. The bed was very comfortable and the aircon did its job in the 36-40C heat. Insect repellent was provided with the bathroom toiletries but we used our own.

The trackers and guides were amazing, not only waking us up at 05:15 but also then finding the animals that we wanted to see and delivering the special ones - a kill, mating, a leopard, wild dogs etc etc.

The safari trucks have a very hard life and maintenance is not so good. Our truck was very difficult to start due to an intermittent electrical connection and eventually failed to start on the key and had to be pushed in the bush. While it was repaired, we had the 'spare' truck which had an almost undriveable vibration above a certain speed. After repair, the night time searchlight socket did not work and, in the dark and the bush, the light was connected directly to the battery. The nearside rear tyre had no tread and in places, the carcase was showing but it was not changed. Thankfully it held up for us and we did not need to change a wheel in the bush.

On the evening drives, there were sundowners in the bush which was an excellent way to chat and relax before the searchlight drive back. Dinner was served in a boma with light from paraffin type table lamps - a lovely way to eat outdoors in the Klaserie.

Would I return - absolutely!
