      Fantastic!”

      We spent 3 nights here a the end of our honeymoon and it was the highlight of our trip. We stayed in a luxury tent which was fantastic, located amongst the wildlife within the reserve. Staff very friendly and attentive and 2 fantastic game drives each day with a wonderful ranger. Highly recommend!

      Luxury Tent is an understatement!”

      The accommodation was first class, spacious, clean and very comfortable. The staff friendly and helpful. The game drivers friendly and informative. Everything is very well organised. Because the lodge is in an open space all sorts of animals can wander through, therefore, in the evening when it is dark, you must be escorted to and from your lodge. The food was excellent. You are given a choice of menu in the afternoon before the game drive and your meal is ready on your return. When you return from the game drive, hot flannels and a drink await you. My only small comment is everything is very formal in the dining area. During our stay there were lots of couples and all the tables were set up to accommodate each couple. Everybody spoke in hushed tones. I felt very uncomfortable with the silence. At other safari lodges, smaller tables are available but there are also larger tables so that you can chat to people befriended on your game drive. It's more social and less formal.

      Great safari experience”

      Stayed three nights/six safari drives. We saw many animals in a natural, managed environment with well managed drives, such that the animals were never surrounded by vehicles. We had a great time. Would recommend.
