Wow. Name it. Service, accomodation, food, staff, experience. Expensive, but worth the money. Game was great. Will never forget "Close your door or a Lion might walk into the room". Water hole right in front of the room. Indoor and outdoor shower. Private Jacuzzi.

My family took me to Etali Lodge for a day trip on my birthday. While the kitchen prepared a "small snack" (in-fact plentiful) for our game drive we were shown around the rooms. Spacious with large comfy beds (I checked with a short lie-down). 2 showers - one with view and one without . Each room has a verandah with...

My husband and I and another couple were fortunate to spend two nights at Etali during June 2012. We decided to go there as my husband has never been to Madikwe Game Reserve before and we only had a couple of days free. It only took us about two hours to get to the gate of the reserve. It should...

First, I must say that I only spent the day here during a business meeting. I neither stayed overnight nor saw a room. I did *not* go on a safari drive. I had very *little* contact with the staff outside of the employees in the main part of the lodge. That said, Etali is a very nice lodge. The food...

We had an excellent time at Etali! Four of us stayed there for 4 days in early February. Moses (manager), as well our guides, Laz and Doc, provided excellent service and were our friends in short time. Their knowledge of Madikwe and the wildlife, as well as their interest in providing us with an excellent experience is something we will...

We stayed for one night at the end of January at very short notice. Friendly and clean with knowledagable guide. Nothing more to say really other than if you are considering it then do it.

Our first experience in safari: two families overall 6 persons (4 adults and 2 kids 16 years old). We have been surprised by wild bush and location of Etali : the lodhe was completely hidden in the wild nature. We spent three beautiful days; food was great : always tasteful and ready when we left for safari and when we...
