We spent a fantastic time at the reserve. The safari tours were always different, fun and most enjoyable. Our guide, Austin, was as friendly as knowledgable. He gave a special tour for our teens, which they enjoyed enormously. We all learnt a lot and had an incredible experience close to the animals. The restaurant was also excellent, the food and...

We were a group of 4 adults. We went for a 2 hour horseback safari and a private game drive but weren't actually staying in the hotel. All our guides were very well informed, friendly and professional. We learned so much about the animals and got to see most of them up close and personal. I strongly recommend these activities.

The Reserve is easy to reach from the N2 but once you are there you feel as if you are in the middle of nowhere - peace and quiet. Truly stunning hotel facilities with infinity pool (swimming in it whilst watching giraffes approach the watering hole below was rather special). The welcome was lovely with a nice glass of "champagne"...

A very reasonably priced day safari in the Western Cape where they have lions, giraffes, zebras, rhinos, Cape buffalo, elephants and all sorts of boks. We also saw blue crane, the national bird of South Africa, with a chick. The drive round the reserve was a leisurely 3 hours with a very informative guide. Afterwards we had a very reasonably...

Awesome service, great food, and amazing game rides with Ranger Bertie who made the game reserve come to life. The only quibbles and they are minor : wifi in room would be a huge plus though reception in main lodge was very good. Surprisingly far better reception than 12 Apostles in Cape Town. Other point is slow draining shower. Beautiful...

Quite an experience at this wonderful private Game Reserve. We were part of a wedding party who took the Reserve over for three days, and nothing was too much trouble for any of the excellent staff. It's expensive (for S Africa) but the whole experience has much to recommend it. Our particular favourites were the private Game Drives - getting...

Spent three nights here and we weren't dissapointed. Had a room in the Manor House although rather on the small side it was well appointed and clean. Lovely to sit on the terrace and watch the animals who came very close at times. Did one game drive but the highlight was walking with the lions. A must do during your...
