Amazing South African adventure
Our stay at this beautiful lodge was everything we had hoped for. Our accommodation in villas 31 was absolutely amazing, the service and food were incredible and our safari guide Sean was awesome! We had some great sightings of the animals in the park on every drive he took us on! I would 100% recommend this lodge to anyone wanting an amazing South African adventure!!

Very good without blowing us away
This is a lovely hotel but with a few imperfections. It is all about the safari and the safari was brilliant. In our three night stay we saw all the big five which was fantastic. The lodge itself is very good but looking a little tired in places. Our shower in particular was falling apart, although the room itself was of a high standard. Service was a little hit and miss. Very good most of the time but lacking when it really mattered. I would recommend Shepherd's Tree. Very good by South African standards and decent by European standards.
