It was a great experience. Lovely accommodation and the lodge itself. Also the very friendly staff and we had so much luck with the great ranger Johan. Still so young but we felt very safe and he had so many interesting stories about animals, trees etc. We have enjoyed it so much!

Lovely Lodge and Accomodation. Service staff and Game Ranger were truly outstanding. Food was great with enough variety but the wine list could do with a bit of a boost. My little kids had a blast and we're well catered for with Nannies and Food choices
Warrick Butler May 2014
Staff very polite and willing. Ranger Mathew very safe, knowledgeable and professional. Rooms and main lodge beautifully furnished and African styled. Meals ok but maybe not quite up to the standard of the rest of the lodges suggested rating. Wine list very limited and served far to warm and so range, storage and cooling should be reviewed. Park nice and big and well stocked with all of the Big 5 and other species, all found over the two days. Brush a bit thick and so burning is suggested to clear the dead brush and encourage new growth. Overall, a great experience.
