    This was for me the third time that I stayed in 1 year. The quality is very constant; always clean, never met any unfriendly staff, good food, good beds, etc.. I still want to come over with my family one day.

    After leaving OR tambo airport, this was our first encounter with wildlife. Wonderful suites, perfect food and good gamedrives. The staff is very friendly. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere very much. We recommend the gamedrive through the adjacent Welgevonden reserve.
