This was THE PERFECT couples getaway! The accommodation is well appointed and luxe, with crisp white linen and soft fluffy towels. The plunge pool makes one feel as if you’re in your own private slice of the bush! Food and service are truly outstanding! Loved every minute! Can not fault this place :)
No water or electric when we arrived. Electricity went in and out for entire stay, due to load-shedding. We were not told in advance, and we would not have booked. No hot water most of the time. Private plunge pool on deck was filthy and unusable. Had to change rooms--safe in first room broken. Left one day early, due to lack of water and electricity.
Amazing lodge for everyone who is looking for a tranqulil and quiet place. I travelled alone and found exactly what I was looking for. The staff was really exceptional - cook "Tiger" asked my everyday what I would like to eat. The small size of the lodge allows for a lot of extra service and added individual value for the customer. Margaret is the good soul and always there for any customers' wishes. I stayed a week and was really sad when I had to feave. The staff had already become family. Every day, I was picked up for amazing safari drives and other tours. The room was clean, lovely furnished with a comfy bed and all the heart desires. Book Katekani if you want a great time! Absolutely nothing to criticize!
My wife and I visited Viva Safaris as part of our honeymoon and we opted for the 3 night / 4 day safari. We thought it was perfect in every way. The ride from Johannesburg to the Kruger National park area was quite long but well organised. The accommodation was excellent and the food was fabulous. But as with a lot of things, the people made it. The accommodation staff and the safari guides were fantastic (big shout to Smiley) and we were lucky enough to see the Big Five which made a great experience into an incredible one. Highly recommend Viva Safaris
How spoilt was I for 4 nights! I enjoyed 3 home cooked meals everyday which were amazing. Tiger, our personal chef catered to everyone's individual dietary needs and were prepared and presented worthy of any fine restaurant. The unique 'tents' came with all mod cons and private plunge pool. The rooms were serviced daily and even included a coffee machine. The highlight each night after dinner was the timetable delivered personally to each guest including times and activities. Everything went to plan and everything was included except for drinks. The camp wasn't very busy when I visited so you got to share your days adventures with other guests in the lounge upon everyone's return. I was sad to leave and would return if I get the opportunity to get to that part of the world again.…
