The setting was very atmospheric and the dance group provided an energetic routine and performance. The meal was plentiful although a little bland. A good way to spend an evening with friends.

We got to see the show one evening as part of our tour package. We found the show not well rehearsed and a bit disorganized. We were disappointed.

A typically predictable holiday entertainment which reminded me of holiday camp or cheap hotels abroad style of evening shows. The young dancers were noisily enthusiastic and of course dragged people out to make fun of them to entertain the crowd. Yawn.

Enjoyed the show, but felt the evening was somewhat overpriced. The dancers were very enthusiastic but it generally felt a bit amateurish.

It is a very long way from Cape Town and therefore it is not possible to do a day visit. You would need to be visiting Mpumalanga and/or the Kruger Park.
