The park is great. Reasonably priced. The big cats are amazing. All animals here are rescued it’s not a zoo. Guides very knowledgeable about the animals but a bit dubious on his theory about the start of HIV. The main downside is getting here. Taxi took 2 hours to collect us. Better to pay a bit extra and ask the driver to wait. Guided tour takes 1.5 hours. Cafe on site.

I accidently came about this place when I search for accommodation in Nelspruit. I am so happy I found it. I cannot believe that they are so affordable. To stay so close to Wildlife's most amazing animals. Prior to my arrival they have whatsapp me and confirmed everything. Upon arrival was I greeted by the friendly manager. Entered my room, I was shocked to see how amazing it was. The aircon, wifi, bed, bathroom and food was super special. Not to mentioned the nature surroundings. Well done to Pumbaa. Love every moment.

They decided to go low on budget with new rooms. Mattress must be the worst I've ever experienced at any hotel, lodge, or guesthouse. Could as well sleep on the floor, mattress so soft, not even fit for a child. No warning that they didn't have a generator and had to sit for 2 hours with only an emergency light and no that is just below the ceiling, having to stand on a rattan chair to switch it on! No wi-fi during load shedding. Bedding is low budget, pillows softest you can get, small low quality towels, no bedside lamps, and toilet seat had one of the two bolts missing.

I had a great time and the gin & tonic voucher didn't hurt either. Just be aware there is a bit of offloading to get to the place but most Cara can male it through. I absolutely loved all the quotes posted
