We had a two night safari here. While not a typical lodge - more of a hotel - it was a five star experience.
The room was excelent as was breakfast, lunch and dinner with so much variety.
One note that the alcohol was not included in the nightly fee but was very well priced.
We shared a jeep with another couple and all had 'window' seats. The guide was knowledgable and we spotted the big five.
The wildlife was more prominent here than in the Krugar part that we visited and it is a more controlled envioinment where teh animals are easier to spot
Excellent value for money
