My husband and I went for the Love Safari special and thoroughly enjoyed it! Perfect place for you to rest and recharge. Food was delicious. The Spa was lovely and would definitely recommend! Two nights were optimal for our time away, the placement of the Luxury Sunridge suites were wonderful for a romantic get away.

We had a lovely 3 night stay in the Sunset Ridge Suites. We were very well looked after by Janel and had 5 special game drives with her. The restaurant served excellent meals - lunchtime a la carte was great too. We were very impressed how well maintained the entire venue was. Only shortfall was house keeping - a sheet with bird mess (we think) was put on the bed and we had to ask twice to have it replaced and also ask twice for water refills. Otherwise a very special venue with lots of game and we will be back !

Good Afternoon Thank you for your positive review and lovely feedback from your visit. I'm pleased to enjoyed all of your dining experiences and I do hope you took the opportunity to sample a few item from our award winning wine list. Janel is a great young lady who often get personal mentions from guests. Her enthusiasm and dedication is truly one of her greatest qualities and we are privileged to have her as part of our amazing team. I have taken the time to share your comment regarding the housekeeping with the departmental manager to emphasize the need to be a little more attentive and urgent when dealing with matters effecting our guests. Thank you again and we look forward to welcoming you back for another amazing getaway Best wishes Malcolm Baxter General Manager

The location is close to Albertinia. The staff were very accommodating, professional and friendly and went out of their way to make our stay special. The twice daily game drives were well organised and we got to see a great deal of game. It was also great to have a spar on the premises to have a mid morning massage. We would highly recommend this as for a special occasion.
