The game viewing was exceptional, comfortable and relaxed. The climb to the rooms was a bit tiring for a 70 year old but the food and ambience was worth the effort. I

This was one of the most wonderfully intimate hotel experiences we've had. The entire team made us feel at home, and the view from our room was unparalleled. I wouldn't highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys boutique experiences and being surrounded by nature.

Wow! Amazing experience, spectacular food and top notch service. Great value compared to Kruger and the terrain is an awesome back drop. Saw all the Big 5 and several other animals on our wish list. Staff was amazing . We we're the only people one night at the lodge and so they surprised us with a private candle lit dinner in our room. Each day was a little different. I was worried we'd tire of it after a while but 3 days was perfect.
