    Great safari experience for first timers. Accomodation and especially service during game drives and meals were great. Many thanks to super ranger Ralf, butler Oupa and lodge manager Ursula. Family from Finland left for home with a great smile. Happy to recommend!

    An absolutely excellent honeymoon venue. A real chance to unwind and connect without the distraction of cell phone signal or tv. Our safari guide was in a class of his own and really something special.
