Myself and my wife spent part of our honeymoon here, and it was an amazing experience. From the minute we drove through the gates into the reserve we were amazed at the beauty of this place, struck dumb seeing majestic giraffes and this was even before we got to the lodge. We stayed at Ukhozi lodge and loved every minute of our stay, all the staff were excellent and the ranger that was looking after us for the few days we were there was brilliant. The morning and evening drives were an experience that we will never forget, going off road and being surprised when a herd of elephants passed within touching distance of the jeep was the highlight. The evening meals and drinks afterwards by a roaring fire with other guests and the rangers was a lovely end to an exhilarating day. To be honest I could write for hours about this place but it is definitely something to experience.
