Stopped over from Kariba on our way to Bulawayo. Check in/Out was a cumbersome. Room had a couple issues. Like listening to the Lions in the morning. We had a river cabin that the outdoor shower was neat. Unfortunately there was an electrical issue with it....Yikes
We stayed one night as a stop over on a long journey and we were so glad we chose this lovely place. We stayed in a River Lodge, which had a lovely view out over the dam and we saw lots of bird life. The room was excellent, and we were grateful for the heaters on a cold May night. The braai diner was superb and the early morning bird watching drive in the game parkway great. There is a lot to do for families and is well worth a longer visit.
Good staff and very nice place. Wouldn't advise a stay though specially this time of covid because can't get the best clean from a cleaner who's getting $15 a month. Activities were great. Will share some nice pics
I had a beautiful holiday surrounded by utmost hospitality from staff. Antelope Park had also been on my bucket list for years, I am glad an opportunity to explore the amazing place paid off. I was a solo traveller but never ran out of options, either walks around the property or a range of activities. The meals were scrumptious, the game drives, carriage ride, elephant encounter and lion feeding were memorable visits, I have a lot of photos! I would love to return and relive the experience!
I have spent a total of 7 weeks at Antelope Park (AP)—5 weeks in August 2018 and 2 weeks in March 2019 and it is undeniably my favorite place on earth. I visited as a volunteer, however, on our second visit, my boyfriend and I upgraded to a river lodge for a few nights and it was amazing. I cannot say enough good things about this place. Between my visits, they upgraded their WiFi so it is fairly easy to stay in touch with family and friends while there, however, I truly enjoyed being disconnected for the periods of time I was there. The reserve is beautiful and guest accommodations are very comfortable. You will make plenty of domestic cat friends while you are there and get visits from wild monkeys and bush babies! There are plenty of giraffes, zebras, wildebeest and antelope to see around the reserve. Their four rescue elephants are the sweetest and LOVE fruit so make sure you have plenty on hand to feed them when you interact with them. Many people have concerns about the ethics of animal tourism but having spent weeks here and seeing the care and attention given to all the animals and getting a first hand experience cleaning enclosures, feeding, making toys for and walking the lions myself and learning about their program, I wholeheartedly believe that the animals are well cared for and their best interests are at heart. This is a wonderful, friendly and welcoming place. It’s the perfect place to meet people from around the world while also getting that quintessential African experience. The staff at AP are some of my favorite people I’ve ever met and I keep in touch with many of them. I even met my boyfriend here! I simply cannot put into words what AP is like or how much I love it. Not a day goes by that I don’t long to be there! …
