Um, not to knock it too bad as $$ workout wellPosted Jul 14, 2014
Pros: The animals
Cons: So many things, this place has potential.
Location: It is East London, we went there for family.
They had a baby Giraffe you could feed, you are able to get very close to big cats and they have hippos. So that sums up the positive stuff I have to say….. Self-drive game drive seemed to be the only option. Our pillows did not have pillow covers. They locked us out of the reserve after asking us what we would be doing that night. Considering its location I felt security was a little lax (I am and ex-South African). The food was ok, the hospitality ok, but we checked out early and they did not even ask why??????? Not one for the princessy like me….

What a fabulous reserve run by lovely people. First and only petting zoo with a baby giraffe! Comfy rooms, lots of space, good value and location. They could do with some more direction signs to help people find it as it's quite tucked away and the roads are difficult to navigate especially at night. You may not want to bother with breakfast, it's small and quite expensive but don't let this put you off. Mpongo game reserve is well worth a visit.

Good fun for overnight stopPosted Dec 17, 2013
On route from Durban to cape town. Perfect for one night stop. High quality and comfortable accommodation. Good evening meal and breakfast. To wet for game drive but nice to see animals on site - springbok, kudu, monkeys wandering loose - and the hippo!
