Brilliant safari experience

Posted Feb 8, 2017
Pros: Peaceful, clean, friendly staff, delicious food. Nature on the doorstep. Amazing rangers. Staff willing to go the extra mile. Lovely experience.
Cons: Small thing but there were pigeons on our balcony and they had defecated all over the outdoor future. It was really disgusting and not possible to use
Location: Safari resort speaks for itself. The spa and swimming pool were lovely extras.
Highlight of our holiday. We stayed for 2 nights and went on 4 drives and saw so many amazing animals. Pretty much everything very close to the vehicle - which was more than I could have hoped for. Our ranger was passionate and knowledgeable as well as determined to make the most of our trip for us. You will not be disappointed if you book here and want to see Lions, Elephants, Buffalo, Giraffe, Hippo, Cheetah and actually so much more! We chose this resort as we have a 10 month old baby and I can't fault the childcare. Prompt, warm, friendly and engaging childcare. Happy to do early mornings and the afternoon drives. There is a playroom with toys for all ages and the kitchen even made him food puree. For a small extra cost they also babysit in the evening so you can go down for the supper after the evening drive. The spa is just an amazing bonus. Honestly - can't recommend this place enough. Its well worth the cost. Enjoy!

An amazing experience

Posted Nov 16, 2016
Location: The location is stunning underneath a mountain in the reserve. It proved to be a real sun trap.
The accommodation was excellent in an amazing location complemented by brilliant game drives with an experienced and knowledgeable Ranger. The food and service were excellent.

Safari may be, but not Kruger standards !

Posted Mar 8, 2016 on Hotels
Sadly, we must say that overall this stay was quite disappointing. Although we received a warm welcome, the ranger was very economical with information and did not actually keep us informed of where we were going, or what to look out for (except maybe once)... We spent most of the drives 3 hrs, speeding along brain rattling roads to get to a site where we might see game. We did however see rhino, elephant, cheetah, jackal and lions so feel bad about complaining but feel the experience could be made much better with a little more effort from our ranger Alvin. In other game parks the ranger socializes over coffee before the drive, to include you in the excitement and may even have dinner with you - not here for sure! The other issue we had was that upon return of our final morning drive, way b4 checkout we arrived in our room to find the maid service having changed the bed and all the towels for the next guests- no shower then!
