We stayed 3 nights in Ukhozi Lodge with our children age 12 and 17. What an experience! We enjoyed every moment of our visit. I were a bit anxious that two game rides every day would be a little bit too much, but I were completely wrong. It was freezing cold and windy, but we experienced so much with our...

Wow!! Everything you could wish for from a game park. Stunning scenery, fantastic wildlife, superb accommodation/meals and knowledgeable wardens. Ask the guide about the birdlife. You won't be disappointed.

Stayed two nights to finish of a Cape road trip. Wildlife - lots to see and our guide Chelee was extremely knowledgeable and had a great knack of sporting and finding game. Highlights were the lion pride, the rhino with its calf and for me the best, sitting in the land cruiser with a herd of 20-30 elephants walking right...

Really enjoyed the safari trips and our ranger for the 3 days was excellent. The room was a bit underwhelming for the amount we paid but it was very spacious and had a great view - in need of a spruce up and some TLC. I was disappointed there wasn't any wifi available in the room. Food was great, couldn't...
