Excellent value, chalet had great views, game viewing was a treat … zebra, wildebeest, eland/kudu, baboons, warthogs & jackals casually strolling through the property. Facilities are not bad. Good getaway

The resort is very well located with splendid views and lots of activities on site. The on-site restaurant was fairly good and the kiosk keeps all the essentials that you may have forgotten. There was perhaps a time it was a 4-star resort, but it isn’t now. From check-in it’s clear that ease of process and guest experience is not high on the agenda. Struggled to find my booking. When you reach the chalet, there is a 1-page inventory list that probably has 60+ items that guests are expected to check and tick-off. There is no back-up generator, and while we were at the resort, there were 2x2hr loadsheds each day. The first nights sleep wasn’t peaceful due to the large number of mosquitos in the unit. The next day I purchased inspect spray at the on-site shop and we were able

From the day we arrived until the day we left, the service was excellent. They have installed gas stoves on the patio which is a tremendous help during load shedding. The road up to the main entrance is not at all bad, contrary to comments by other guests. Beautifully maintained grounds and chalets, excellent service. Friendly and efficient staff. Check out was fast and efficient. Well done to everyone at Crystal Springs. If I could give more stars I would!!! Nina Coelho

Excellent service from the entrance to reception to room, even the ground staff will greet you driving past.. Found the dishwasher to be a plus factor. Staff will answer your questions without hesitation. Love the animals roaming the property.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay with my spouse. Everything was easy from check in to accessing our unit. It was a very peaceful trip with very beautiful scenery. We got to see a few animals outside our unit as well which was lovely to see

The website does not sell it enough, the place is gorgeous. The view, the hospitality, the accommodations and entertainment. My kids had a lot of fun. Definitely coming back. Go see for yourself. Kindly review your website, the place it’s self is more beautiful than how it appears on the website
