Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

There was a heavy downpour on the night I arrived and then the following morning, I was almost stuck in the mud. Also the roads were too full of dongas which one particular one dislodged the bumper of my car. The gas heater for the hot water did not work therefore it was a freezing cold shower for me

My family stayed in a platform tent for one night. This is the second time we stayed there. It was most enjoyable. The premises was clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the game on the farm. We had a good stay.

We booked last minute the lodge next to the front office and it was great! Too big for the four of us so therefore a lot of space. But even with more people the lodge is still very big and a lot of kitchen and bathroom amenities. Employees are genuinely hospitable.

Awesome place to relax. Beautiful scenery. Friendly and helpful staff. Lots of wildlife to enjoy. Kids loved meeting Gambit the giraffe up close. Swimming pool was a great way to cool off before lunch. Definitely will be back soon.

Fantastic location, just needs more personal attention to the smaller things. 10 beds on the platform is way to many for the size of the room. Septic tank is located directly under the platform so the odour rises into the room, the tank just needs to be moved away from the platform.

What a nice surprise this year to find a Resturant up river for us to visit in our December holiday while water ski-ing. We were able to dip in the pool and our kids had so much fun climbing the tractor and the old game vehicle. Great service and he rangers even tied up our boat. Great job guys! You...

Thoroughly enjoyable. Great value for money. Friendly staff, even friendlier bar. Biggest guard dog I have ever seen (Giraffe guarding the entrance to your accomodation 24/7) All in all a great experience with lots of animals to see.

Go on surprise yourself. We arrived in our camper van with little clue what really to expect. A lovely encounter, great caravan spot, lush grass, clean and tidy. And 'Gambit' the friendly park keeper kept an eye on us the whole night through...even popped his head in to check on progress with morning tea and coffee.
