Score from 8 reviews Exceptional
Our safari guide Jimmy did an excellent job to ensure we saw all the big 5. He made it a memorable experience
The location is great being unfenced and allowing animals to roam through the camp. The tent was fantastic with a/c, comfortable beds and outdoor showers. The staff were friendly and service was superb. The guide and trackers were very knowledgeable and entertaining enabling us to see the big 5 in one day.
Some of the facilities are showing signs of wear and tear which should be addressed given that it is a high end property.
The food was supberb, the staff very courteous, a/c in the tent, the outdoor shower, a comfortable bed...everything
I'd have like to have been a little closer to the wildlife
That you are obliged to join other people during diner and breakfast
Top-Destination for Game-Viewing. Very friendly and experienced staff. Relaxing atmosphere. Luxury accomodation. Delicious food. Incredible, how close we got to the animals.
Super friendly staff, rangers included, we opted to stay in what they call "luxury tent" and it was indeed very confortable. Location of the lodge was also very good and we were able to see 4 of the 5 bigs.
I would not give a good mark for the food.
Perfect spot to relax, become one with nature,to forget the daily routine and enjoy the calmness. Delicious food and extreme friendly and professional staff.
small and simple pool area.
All good, lots of wildlife, staff, food, facilities - in the wilderness
no indoor shower for chilly mornings, but not a showstopper
A wonderful and amazing experience! Thanks to our excellent driver Diff we saw the big five and learned a lot about the animal species, birds and plants. The accommodation is really beautiful with comfortable beds en great food. The staff is very friendly and willing to fulfill all your needs.
fantastic, remote location in a wonderful private reserve with fantastic and very knowledgeable guides for the game drives. The room/tent were unique and luxurious. The food was great and the staff were amazing and always doing little things to make your stay extra special.
