We stayed at Ouklip for a weekend as we wished to visit Dinokeng during Feb 2023. We found the Accommodation perfect. We used Gilbert (owner) for a game drive - awesome. His knowledge was brilliant AND he also concentrated on the small things in the bush which was nice. But the downside - you get woken up by roosters at 03:30 every morning. I do not want to get a farm awakening when I am having a bush experience - they charge extra for everything. R50 to was your dishes, R50 to make your bed! It is not as if their rates are the cheapest, why not just include the service like their competitors? - 5% surcharge if you pay by credit card. This to me is the cherry on the top. Those three points are the reasons that I will not return. Dinokeng has so many beautiful establishments and to be honest, each has to on top of their game to get return guests

We stayed for a 3 night midweek at Ouklip Game Lodge in the Dinokeng game reserve. The tented camp is well equipped and the interior is mostly made from railway sleeper wood. Beautiful. The tents are far enough positioned from each other to get a feeling from being in the bush alone. The owners/management is very professional and friendly. Each tent has a boma, full bathroom and kitchen. Very recommendable.

First off...the photos do not do it justice - everything is waaaay beyond one's wildest expectations. It is super clean, neat, and organized and they have thought of literally everything. From cooking ware to everything you need to stay warm! We had the privilege of having the owner as our guide for a game drive and he did not only show us 3 of the big 5, but also shared his knowledge on trees and the reserve's history etc. Super informative! The room / tent is so spacious and each one has its own kitchen area as well as braai area. We celebrated our anniversary this weekend and it truly is going to be challenging to top this experience! Well done to Gilbert and his amazing team!

We thoroughly enjoyed our family holiday at OuKlip Lodge this week. The tents were so neat and tidy and the boma area was awesome. Each tent and boma is fully kitted out with everything you may need during your stay. Wilma and Gilbert were incredible hosts. The game drives were amazing and Gilbert has so much knowledge of the area, animals and birds to share. We will definitely be back again soon!

What a great place. Rooms are well equipped and very neat! The management knows what they are doing and give attention to small detail! They deliver ice / wood on order with a golf cart. If it rains they come to close the tent windows, and in the morning they check if your stoep is dry enough. They have a great shop with much more than you need! Nice jungle gym, trampoline and farm animals. They have 2 pools for the hot days and a beautiful view from your tent . Fantastic option!

Ouklip is a luxurious well equipped tented lodge with exceptional attention to detail. We experienced a personalised, warm and hearty welcome on arrival. Cleanliness of the accommodation is of an outstanding standard. Amenities - anything you require, has been provided. Servicing of the tents is immaculate. Braai-area facilities has everyrthing you can wish - from a fire-waver through to even an axe for wood chopping. We will definitely return to Ouklip in near future and recommend this destination.

Ouklip Lodge was such a wonderful experience. The tents have everything you need and more. We stayed close to the waterhole and could enjoy the animals at a very close range coming to drink. The premises are very neat and the swimming pool is a bonus. We also enjoyed the game drive hosted by the owner. When we visit Dinokeng again in the near future, we will most definitely stay at Ouklip Lodge again.

Very nice hotel near Johannesburg. Clean and organized. We went with the family and everyone had fun. The safari was really fun and explanatory. They last on average 3 hours in a 4x4. We saw the Big 5.
