Had a really fantastic trip. The Resort is great the service, food and rooms are all brilliant. We had good game drives and saw a good variety of game, the ranger was knowledgeable and added to the enjoyment. I would recommend to anyone.

I travelled with friends from England. Having never been on a safari I was unsure what to expect. The lodge sits on an elevated site which gives you panoramic views across the reserve. The attention to detail is remarkable. From the very tastefull decor to the delightful staff, it was a treat. The lodge could only accommodate me for one...

From the time we arrived the adventure began, surrounded by the best Africa has to offer and staff that go way beyond their call of duty. We had the absolute pleasure of having Kingsly as our ranger (what an amazing individual). The wildlife was amazing and way more than I expected. when at the resort your every need is catered...

We were so excited for this holiday and booked the honeymoon suite for us for a special treat. The lodge looks really great from the outside and is nicely decorated. The attention to detail though could be better throughout for a five star accommodation. We got disappointed by the kitchen on the first night already. The food was mostly fried,...

From the moment you arrive at the car park and your own personally allocated ranger collects you for the 10 minute drive to your lodge, you know you are in for a special treat.

The lodge facilities are fantastic, modern and yet containing in buildings that are 'native' in look and build. An infinity pool from which you can watch rhino, zebra, giraffes etc close at hand.
