    My stay with Bambelela was Amazing, I loved and enjoyed every bit of it. The staff is very friendly and kind, everyone is always willing to help. I really had a great experience it was very educational and fun, fell in love with the Vervet monkeys especially the handy capped. Felt very very sad and heartbroken when I left. Will definitely come back no doubt about that!!!

    We spent a tranquil week surrounded by wildlife. We did not see any of the Big 5, but nonetheless we were happy with what we saw. Ingwe Camp is well run, with very friendly, helpful staff.

    I personally wouldn’t take children under 8 to Ingwe. The units are in the bush with no flat areas for kids to play. Warthogs are in abundance so I wouldn’t allow kids to venture beyond the unit. There are, however, 2 swimming pools (one heated) and a large play area behind reception.

    The loft units have a very steep incline access path so we requested a porter to carry our bags. Also note that the bathroom is on the ground floor and the bedroom in the loft. Trips to the toilet at night could be hazardous!

    All in all we had a great time. Frans took us on an informative game drive where we saw giraffe, zebra and nyala.

    Wonderful experience !!!
    We booked the vehicle for a game drive as friends. Staff were friendly and provided a lot of interesting information during the ride. Even the 11 year olds listened attentively during the 2 hour ride.
    The animals are very well cared for !!!

    This place is a total find. We went with a friend a month ago and have been going every weekend since. My wife is from Italy and said the pizza from their custom built pizza oven is some of the best she’s ever had. Also, the craft beers are absolutely delicious. This place has a funky cool vibe and the owners make it so much fun in addition. We always meet really great people and have an outstanding meal when we’re there. We plan on moving to this area and are guaranteed to become regulars.
    Thank you for giving us this true oasis in the bush!
    We truly appreciate you guys. Lenny and Donatella.

    Feracare Wildlife Centre is a great place in Bela Bela as a stopover. The accomodations are clean and spacious. Have your breakfast while enjoying the beautiful scenery of this place.

    Feracare is one of the leading wildlife centres with the expertise in rehabilitating cheetahs and other wildlife back into the wild.
    During your stay you can experience several activities such as feeding cheetahs, cheetah run and do a wildlife tour in the reserve.

    Every time is coming home far away from home.

    This was a wonderful experience with the beautiful cats. To be up close to these majestic animals in the wild is an adventure to be remembered. We did the Cheetah walk. The animals (Lions and Cheetah's) are very well cared for and in perfect condition.

    We stopped in here for lunch and the food was pretty good. We ordered chicken mayonnaise sandwiches which were delicious along with a few drinks

    A really pleasant place to stop off for a light lunch. The menu looked really good overall and we would be keen to go here for dinner next time
