What an excellent weekend away. From welcoming us to housekeeping, food, ranger Bongani,security. Had a special request for the room and exceeded my expectation. Great game viewing. Awesome food and pastries. That chocolate fondant was beyond delicious. Weldone Shannon and your team you made memories so special we didnt want to leave.

The staff, the accommodation, the food were all amazing. Thanks to Stuart our ranger who was very knowledgeable and was amazing with our kids. It was an epic family recharge weekend ... We will definitely be back.

Room tip: The homestead is the best and the quietest. It is situated on the edge so also has the maximum privacy

This lodge and the game reserve are amazing. Staff excellent, rangers excellent, accommodation excellent. And the game excellent. Our ranger had a sighting of a leopard mom and cub and drove us around to view them playing at our evenig drive. We definitely come back here!!

Room tip: I advise to take a cottage.... prices are identical and the location is perfect
