Booking.com Guest Review GuidelinesTo keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This allows us to verify that our reviews come from real guests like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or their comfortable room than someone who’s stayed at the property?
We want you to share your story, with both the good and the not-so-good. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinions and experiences, which is critical in helping guests make informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, so we treat them with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full and as quickly as possible, provided the guidelines are met. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
We'll use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content, and for the property responses to that content.
We'll allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is to be a feedback distributor for both guests and properties.
Guidelines and Standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly, without limiting expression or strong opinions. They're also applicable regardless of the comment's tone.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include hate speech, discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, or the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and other similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties, and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.

눉Towels have stains. After touching and smelling I can tell it was clean and has been washed, but still if they can provide a totally white towel it would be perfect. Washing basin has some accumulated dirt too.
눇We stayed in the Luxury Safari Tent and it was awesome. Very open-spaced with great view of the reserve surrounded by African forest. Very comfy bed and cosy living area. We had very good sleep at night, and for afternoon nap there were birds singing making the nap even more relaxing. Love the outdoor shower and big bathtub. We saw numerous stars at night outside our own balcony. Food were nice and plenty. Dining area was country-luxurous and cosy made us feel home. Staff were friendly and helpful. Game drives were superb we saw everything we want to see including lions, cheetahs, rhinos, different kind of deers, elephants, jackals, warthogs, giraffes, zebras etc. It was an absolutely amazing experience.

눉- really bad food: most expensive hotel of a two weeks journey through SA with the worst food of all our hotels or restaurants - very poorly cleaned lodge: a lot of stains and apparent filth - poor condition of our lodge and furniture, a lot of the furniture is old and looks really run down - everything looks run down and nobody cares about details - nobody of the "management" seems to care - mediocre service -> really bad price-performance ratio, not recommendable

눉Everything was perfect.
눇We loved everything - pure luxury! The bungalow is enormous and beautifully decorated....staff were incredible...they even set up a dining table in our room for a romantic honeymoon dinner. Our game driver Wonga was brilliant - extremely knowledgable & friendly...the manager Jonathan also joined for a few game drives which really added to the experience and our understanding of the wildlife. We saw cheetahs, lions and all of the other game in during our 3 days there....I actually preferred it to my previous safari in Kenya's famous Masai Mara park. Tyrone and all the guys in the main lodge & kitchen give a great energy too. The food was really tasty and plentiful (drinks too). They had thought of absolutely everything (incl hot water bottles on the game drives). Can't recommend highly enough.

눇Very friendly staff. Only 4 lodges so we got to know the other guests. Jantjie, our ranger, went out of his way to find all the animals. Luxurious accommodation and great food. Loved the all inclusive.

눉the guestrooms need to be checked before guests arrive to make sure that all is in order and to be up to 5 star standard
눇excellent food quality and service and friendly staff

눉Think the food could be better for the price tag. It's not bad and there is plenty of it but it should be better. Also we found some of the staff were not very friendly to each other which was a bit uncomfortable
눇Amazing place, rangers are excellent - we saw so much amazing wildlife and the rooms are great. Even though expensive, felt like it was good value

눉The evening meal could have been more traditional African / game / brai type...
눇Awesome reserve and you are 7.5km from civilisation.... very small with only 4 luxury lodges... lodges themselves are stunning. Game drives were very expert and everything thought of including hot waterbottles for the early am drive!

눇It was exciting and fun, the owner and staff where the best, and we couldn`t have wished for a better guide than Jean and his trainee Tye.
