This was our second visit in 13 months. The reserve has a very nice atmosphere, staff are very helpful and the opportunities to see game is excellent. The range of animals is wide. The game seems almost too tame, but this helps to get very close to them and it provides super photo opportunities.

We stayed in one of the Deluxe tent by the river and have animals outside the tent and could walk to the spa in our robes. The rangers were very good and took us to nice close-ups with the animals.

Definitely stay in the bush villas! They are new, gorgeous, much closer to the animals, and SO much cheaper than the lodges/tents. We had a lovely braai out on our villa's patio, watching the animals eat and drink just across the pond from us. Horseback safari was so-so, massage in the spa was great, and the guided safari with Johann...

We had an amazing affordable weekend getaway at the self catering villas. The highlight was watching the hippos right in front of us in a very playful mood and at one stage there were 6 Rhinos, 20 Buffaloes and 4 hippos opposite our villa. Out of this world. The splash pool was a hit as well although we couldn't understand...
