“After 2 weeks travelling the Garden Route, this was the highlight of our trip. Our “tent” was luxurious, the food & hospitality excellent and the safari drives exceeded expectations. The reserve is, maybe, not as vast as others but it meant we got to see plenty of amazing wildlife close-up and enjoy amazing scenery with a lively commentary from our ranger. The lodge has only 6 “tents”, each with a private view of a watering hole and it’s wonderful visitors, which meant we got to enjoy the company of our fellow travellers at meal times. Lodge staff were all very helpful and welcoming – especially the delightful Brenda who was our host at mealtimes. Simply loved it!” –Alanfrombedford
“Incredible hosts. Impeccable accommodations. Hot baths waiting for you after a safari. The scenery was gorgeous and tranquil. Out of this world service and meals. Let’s just say I would go back in minute and I would recommend it anyone.” –liserk
“We have just returned after 3 nights at the reserve, can’t explain how incredible our stay was, from beginning to end, the staff were fantastic, bending over backwards to make sure our holiday was an experience to remember. Norman checked us in, and then we met Vera our Ranger, who was the best, she made us feel so comfortable and not silly about asking any questions, she is a great singer. :-) she went to every length to make sure we had sightings of so many animals, and just made the whole experience a memory from start to finish. Agheera (sorry if I’ve spelt your name wrong) was wonderful and so so helpful, as were all the other staff and Rangers. Cannot rate this high enough.” –Kelly M
