From watching the sun rise, while game surrounds you as you are drinking coffee in the back of the game vehicle or sipping drinks in the evening at the Boma, with the smell of a fire wafting, there is enough to keep one busy while relaxing from the stress of everyday life. The ultimate bushveld getaway for the international business or leisure traveler with time constraints as well as small intimate weddings, family reunions or group gatherings all the while being mesmerised by the African skyline in luxury surroundings and personalised treatment. All this and more, situated only 45 mins north form Pretoria, in Dinokeng Game Reserve, Gauteng's only Big5 reserve.

I arranged a valentines weekend for my wife and I. The owners went out of their way to assist me in setting up a romantic weekend which was very much appreciated. The room was very comfortable, especially with the king size bed (I hate small beds). Beautiful view of animals roaming around the fence while you eat or just have coffee.

Warning: Do bring a mosquito machine or anti-mozzie cream. It's still they wild and they do rule!!

We had such a wonderful weekend getaway at this lovely Dinokeng lodge. The staff and owner were so accommodating and friendly which made our stay extra comfortable and enjoyable. The food was exceptional and they catered for our different dietary preferences. We enjoyed our dinners out by the boma every evening under the stars. Our little 10 month old was also accommodated for and a camp cot provided for him. We have a wonderful relaxing stay and will definitely be coming back again.

The Good: friendly staff when we did find or see them and great location. Overall good sized rooms and for the most part it was clean accept toilets and showers. The bad: The wifi was not working during our entire stay, the shower was full of mold and to top it all they did not turn on the generators when we really needed it. (when you cook and its dark during loadshedding and this was literally eveyr night). They only provided a single weak backup light per room and this is self catering so no restaurant on the premises.

We do apologise profusely, if the guest did not receive our information letter. Our procedures will be looked into, to ensure this will not reoccur. This information letter is forwarded to each guest, before arrival, explaining catering on site. Additionally explains loadshedding, the effects and our way of dealing with it, including the timing for use of generators and wifi. We also give information re contact numbers of all activities and restaurants in the reserve for the clients to use. In this way, we ensure the guests know what to expect.

The place is nice, lost in the middle of the Dinokeng reserve, perfect to escape from the city. The room was confortable but we could hear the people in the next room perfectly. So the place wasn’t quiet. In addition, one of us get a cold shower because some
Of the customer took too long shower.

The service was nice and the people are very friendly, the aera around the room is nice and set up for Braai and relaxing time.

We were surround by animal that was wonderful.

The venue is easily accessible, The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and layout is great. Cn be a bit noisy if adjacent rooms occupants are loud. It's a pity the bar is not open and that there isn't a restaurant onsite for lunch or dinner options. The breakfast was ok. We would have preferred if each unit had a braai since there are provision for self catering. We enjoyed our stay.

We were looking for a quick break within easy driving distance of Joburg and the airport and this was perfect for that. The game reserve was very nice and we had some good sightings but Foreva Wild absolutely made the trip. The staff were among the friendliest and most accommodating we have ever seen and the place itself was lovely.

I would highly recommend the braai that they do! It was delicious and epic! They were even able to cater for a vegetarian option and nut allergies. Definitely above and beyond what we expected.

Would highly recommend!
