We were visiting the Manyeleti game reserve, right outside the Kruger park and wanted to stay in a bush accommodation. My partner's mum is a travel consultant in South Africa, so she booked us in the Nsele Lodge. We self-drove through those terrible roads (they were being worked on) and found the Guernsey Reserve and Nsele inside.
The place itself is fantastic - very cozy, neat and has that bush feel, however with modern amenities and service.
Olaf and his wife were amazing hosts making sure we had a great time. We did 6 safari drives and saw all of the big 5 plus some amazing animals including the highlights - a lion pride and a leopard sleeping on a tree.
We did not go on safari with Olaf, rather went with a local company headed by Elardus, who was incredibly knowledgable about all animals and plants. Every morning and afternoon, the staff would prepare for us a take away cooler bag with drinks, sandwiches, coffee and refreshments. I thought that was excellent!
Food, service and lodging was excellent. Cannot wait to go back!! Absolutely loved it!!More
