“Food is good, hospitality excellent. The staff are very helpful and amazingly, along with the owners, they remember everybody’s name. A great holiday for a special occasion. Not a difficult holiday for those less able and the only challenge for most would be getting in and out of safari trucks.” –Jenner54
“We were among a small group to stay here and it was hugely enjoyable. Rooms were excellent, clean and large, and the food was a very high quality. The staff are friendly and all smiles. Game drives with our two rangers were good fun but probably the highlight was the evening entertainment in the pub with Bill and Rose, so committed to making their guests have an enjoyable holiday. A prefect place to stay for a small group.” –alanandjan
“We spent three nights here with four game drives including a river trip. The country house and shearers lodge offers terrific value for money, an excellent welcome and good food. The bar before dinner is a highlight, with loads of atmosphere and an opportunity to hear from Bill about the history of Leeuwen bosch. The game drives were very good with stunning views across the bush especially from the plateau. The rangers are knowledgable and very helpful with sundowners and snacks it is a very memorable experience.” –mitchellbenhur
