Gomo Gomo Game Lodge
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 October 2017

My wife and I spent three days at Gomo Gomo Game Lodge and had a superb time. Our guide Damien and tracker Caswell were amazing and went to great lengths to find us all the animals we wanted to see (thanks, fellas!). A host of animals, including a family of giraffes, walked past the lodge in which we stayed. As a vegetarian, I was pleased with the selection of meals on offer. We had our evening meals around a camp fire on a couple of occasions, which was a great experience. The whole team at Gomo Gomo, especially Carina, couldn't have been more helpful and we've got no hesitation at all in giving them five stars.

Quick summary; plenty of diverse wildlife, excellent ranger, many opportunities to interact with international, interesting guests, plenty of snacks and meals. In May bring t-shirts for warm day time temperatures, but bundle up for morning and night safaris.

We decided on Gomo Gomo solely because they offered air-conditioned cabins and WiFi. Temperatures can fluctuate more than 20 degrees Fahrenheit on a given day in the Greater Kruger National, so the protection of a cabin at night and air conditioning during the day was perfect. The WiFi was a bit slow. However, this is true for the entire Koger area.

The excellent, small group safaris in an open Range Rover were ideal. Each Safari was better than the one before! Our guide/ranger, Warren, was informative, humorous, entertaining, and kept updated on sightings via radio. Drinks and homemade snacks were provided during each Safari.

The staff was very safety conscience. We were escorted to the lodge/ cabin when it was dark outside. The cabins were equipped with communication radios, fire extinguishers, etc. A fence surrounded the property kept dangerous animals at bay, with two entrances, should one be blocked by animals.

Dedicated staff, considerate of individual diet restrictions, thoughtfully prepared meals and snacks. However, most of the food, although tasty and well proportioned, was a bit laden with carbohydrates and fat.

One of the best aspects of Gomo Gomo was the sharing of experiences among multinational guests. We enjoyed the interaction among guests, encouraged by meals served at a communal table and small Safari groups.

We stayed in cabin 3, which had 2 rooms and a bath. The cabin had a double and 2 twin beds with a great view of the watering hole. It was probably the closest cabin to the lodge which made it a very convenient location. The cabins were fairly clean despite brick and wood construction.

The day at Gomo Gomo was well planned, keeping us busy yet allowing down time during warm hours to rest or mingle.

Below is the “Suggested Daily Program” for early May that was given to us upon arrival:

05:15 Wake Up Call
5:45 Coffee/Tea & Confectionaries
06:00 Morning Game Drive
09:00 Back at Camp
09:30 Breakfast
14:00 Lunch
15:45 Afternoon Game Drive
19:00 Back at Camp & Pre Dinner Drinks
19:30 Dinner

An excellent place to experience your first game drives. Very friendly staff and excellent driver and tracker (JP and Caswell) who made the whole experience memorable and something that we will want to do again. Accommodation was comfortable with AC, great veranda and shower to wash away the dust! Food was excellent and plentiful.

What agreat experience we had at Gomo Gomo ! J.P. and Caswell were terrific at locating the animals day and night. We saw the Big Five close up plus many more exciting animals such as the Honey Badger and wild dogs. The accommodation was excellent and all the staff were friendly and happy. Cannot speak too highly of Gomo Gomo !
