Hello ct580 Thank you for the 5 stars, we love hearing about our guest’s adventures on our property. We are indeed only an hour away from Johannesburg, but many tell us that it's only 45 minutes (I suppose it depends what speed you are doing).The Spa is indeed worth a mention and we’re so glad you did!

Your animal farm is amazing and very neat. Game drive a bit too long but then it is hard to please everybody. Live guards must be more strict at the hot pools where people are not suppose to jump and splash.

Hello O8380ILjj Thank you for your 5 star rating! Our Animal World is one of the must see features on our Resort, so we’re glad you were able to experience that as well as our gorgeous Aquadome environment which is an adventure on its own. Yes, we do enforce safety very strictly at Aquadome but there’s no harm reinforcing this...

If you're looking for a fun family holiday with lots for the children to do, then look no further than Emerald Resort & Casino. We went using a Daddy's Deals voucher & the value for money was outstanding.

Wonderful place for a family getaway. It was raining quite a bit during our stay but having so many indoor activities made it really fun. It was really fun especially for our kids. Will be back again!

I have not traveled for a long time. So this was a trip where we didn't know what to expect. We were treated with respect I must say. The shuttle services were superb. The gentlemen (drivers) even took the time to open doors for us. They did not classify according to race or gender, they treated even children with respect....

Nice place for a short stay / weekend getaway. Mini-store could be better stocked. They could improve on facilities for children such as jungle gyms, have more child related activities and provide better facilities for fishermen.
