We just stayed for 1 night but it was truly amazing!! They were so friendly and we even got a late check out for free. The ranger T was also super motivated and friendly. Felt like paradise between the wilde beesten! ;-)

Beautiful lodge and room, experienced ranger, great breakfast,lunch and diner. Also the reserve is very pretty!It is a lodge where you sleep in the middle of the reserve so you feel very connected with all the animals.
