Extremely quite location - except some lion roaring during the night:-)) Staff is extraordinarily friendly and service minding. Interesting game drive through lion sanctuary. Go there - even when the last 15 km on D180 are a bit bumpy

Everything about this place was amazing. From the room to the food and the amazing hospitality shown by all the staff. Even though the lodge was fully booked, we barely saw anyone else except for meal times and then everyone was nicely social distanced so you kept your sense of privacy.
This place is an absolute gem.

If precious memories are made from great experiences, I now have gained more memories. From the moment I arrived Craig, Anna, Richard and the other staff went out of their way to ensure my weekend was relaxing and enjoyable. I thank Craig a for a great "bush-drive"! (private joke). Anna's culinary skills made each meal a pleasure and no request was too great or small for Richard to carry out with dedication and enthusiasm.

I definitely will be back.

Disappointed with the food and the service.
Lunch was a disaster. Schnitzel from a box and chips that were under cooked.
Then we were messed around regarding the game drive. The times kept changing based on what other guests wanted, so we left after our first night. we will never return. i am still waiting for a call from one of the directors.

Schrikkloof Private Nature Reserve is a lovely, quaint and homely place that is full of loving hosts. Richard, Anna and Craig all ensured that the family was taken cared of. My elderly mum couldn't manage all the steep stairs and they were very accommodating to assist her.

Beautiful nature reserve, wonderful lodge with great staff and delicious meals. Very nice room with a great view, the outdoor shower was a plus. Game drives and visit to the lions in the sanctuary made our stay unforgettable.
Make sure to drive a large car or 4 x 4 as the last part of the gravel road is bad, lot of potholes in times of heavy rainfall.

The staff was not informative enough in terms of the times that the activities take place. Ended almost missing the lion feeding on Sunday. At least an alternative plan was made for us to partake on the lion feeding. There was water and electricity issues on Saturday which was only resolved on Sunday when it was time for us to leave. The rooms are nice just that their are television inside the rooms. Of which some of the guests I believe would appreciate to have television in their rooms. Not to view TV on a conference room

Schrikkloof is a true gem. Great lodge, very comfortabel rooms, beautiful surroundings, wonderfull staff and service, quiet and serene. Great game drives and all income benefits the rescued animals of the Lions Foundation which is located on the property. A must see!
On top of that we really enjoyed our food and interaction with the staff! Highly recommended but make sure to drive a larger car or 4 x 4 as the public road leading towards the entrance of Schrikkloof is a dirt road.

My husband and I went to Schrikkloof Private Nature Reserve for our Anniversary. The staff were amazing. It's a beautiful Lodge to just relax and take some time out. The food is delicious, and the Chef and his staff go out of their way to make sure you get the best. Thanks for our wonderful stay we will definitely be back again.
