Super comfortable and homey. Stove with all the necessary accessories for basic cooking (pots and pans and dishes), a microwave, a fridge, and tea/coffee.

There's no wifi but they have some TV channels.

Lots of blankets kept us warm in the cold winter climate and the beds were comfortable.

We opted out of lunch or dinner but breakfast was good with lots of options.

There is a huge pool (although it was too cold while we were there to make use of it)

Resort offers options for conferences and also has massage services also.

One evening sounded like there was a drum performance or something outside but we were already tucked in after a long day so we didn't go check it out.

A bit pricey for the quality but consider the fact that it is quite far from big towns and it is right right right next to a park entrance. A great base for us for a weekend of safari adventures. They organize safari tours also but we decided to not take one after having been really lucky on our own

Stayed: August 2017, travelled as a couple

Excellent experience!!! Will recommend it to anybody and will come again. Have no good thing to say about the park rangers were a bit secretive and not friendly. Camp staff was excellent and very friendly!!

From painless check-in to leaving the experience was first class. The staff was very friendly and no effort was spared to make our stay comfortable. The caravan ablutions is old but was always nice, clean and in perfect working order. Will co back any time

Bakgatla really needs a face lift. Don't think we will be going there again very soon.
Staff very friendly and helpfull.
Needs to review their rules regarding music.
People go there to relax and enjoy nature, not want to listen to others music.

The campsite was beautiful and well organised, with very friendly, helpful and efficient staff. However, several other campers were noisy (loud but not rowdy) until well past 21h00, and the campsite could perhaps gain from appropriate signage in this regard.
All in all, a 9 out of 10 experience.
