Very well looked after , great for viewing the animals ,
 Reviewed by david west over a year ago

It was an excellent weekend and we had the vhance to see a lot of animals around.You have to look for all animals like birds and smaller one. We saw a lot of them and our visitors from Germany have been very happy going back with a lot of pictures. The accommendation was perfect. We put it in our list to come back.
 Reviewed by Hans Bier over a year ago

We had a very comfortable and enjoyable stay. We were surprised when two beautiful Elephants came up close to the dining area of the Lodge and rustled the bushes and had some water. As quietly as the appeared they moved away. Unbelievable. The game drive was lovely and our guide was really good and followed up by the evening braai - an experience to be remembered. Our only negative was that there was only one serving point for the meals and this became congested at times. Nevertheless, thanks is due to all the staff.

Lovely stay! Great food and very relaxing. Bush braai worth doing but the game drive was very bumpy!
