    We were amazed by being in the presence of these gentle giants. The experience was so full of richness and learning. We enjoyed the elephant ride and felt blessed to meet them all. A well run facility doing great things for elephants.

    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 !!!

    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.

    Caring for animals is what God expect from us. Awesome to see how these animals are getting better and given the chance to a better life

    First time here. Stopped for lunch on the way to Marakele National Park. Staff was very accommodating and helpful. Just had boerie rolls (great) and drinks. Well worth the stop. Just check opening times.
