5*+ Safari Lodge
This is an amazing hotel, delicious food and drink is all included and the service is friendly but exemplary. On arrival we were on a game drive within the hour and saw the big 5 in one go as well as lots of other animals, birds and reptiles. Our ranger was called Lazarus and he made our stay and drives fun and very interesting and informative. He went over and above what you would expect and always found us different things to see every day. As this lodge has it's own grounds of several hectares you are able to view the game in privacy from all other tourists, though you do go out into Kruger park as well. I couldn't recommend the hotel enough and the game spotting was unbelievable, with lions, elephants, rhinoceros, giraffe, hyenas, wild dogs, zebra etc all within a couple of meters from your vehicle.
