      Good for cheetah”

      Plenty of wildlife, but of course ,not all of the big five. Seeing the Cheetah and her four cubs was the highlight and also coming across a herd of giraffe when leaving on the internal (and very deeply potholed) road leading to the main gravel access road. The directions on my confirmation email were trying to send me 1.5 hours west instead of 1 hour east (of Graaf-Reinet). Room for improvement Agoda!!

      Das Samara Private game reserve ist wirklich super. Der Service und die Unterkunft sind luxuriös. ”

      Das Personal war sehr nett und zuvorkommend. Wir waren davor bereits auf Game Drives in anderen Reservaten, hier hat man jedoch eine ganz andere Landschaft als weiter im Süden. Hier kam richtiges Afrika feeling auf :) Es war auch etwas besonders mal den Jeep zu verlassen und zu Fuß auf die Suche zu gehen, das durften wir sonst nirgends. Einen Stern Abzug gibt es leider, da wir ein paar administrative Probleme mit dem Reservat hatten, die bei dieser Preisklasse nicht passieren sollten. Bei der Abreise haben wir die Rechnung bekommen und mussten den Preis für die Übernachtung erneut bezahlen, obwohl bereits bei der Buchung über Agoda bezahlt wurde. Der Kundenservice von Agoda hat hier glücklicherweise sehr gut unterstützt.  Hier noch ein Tipp: Wenn man in das Reservat fährt braucht einen Code für ein Tor (knapp 20km bevor man ankommt). Man befindet sich mitten im Nirgendwo und wir mussten Samara anrufen um den Code zu erhalten. Wir empfehlen sich den Code vorher zu holen.
