Our two-night stay at this small game lodge was memorable. The atmosphere is one of a private house-party rather than a commercial establishment. The level of professionalism was extremely high. The staff went out of their way to make us feel pampered. Our ranger was outstanding, intrepid at the wheel, full of information, and also great fun. She also found...

This is a wondrous place where you feel special and pampered by the staff. Every detail is thought about. We were given a very clear orientation on our arrival amidst a panoramic vista of the valley below us with giraffes peaking from the bush and veld below. We were whisked to our private chalet that was again perfect- a perfect...

Accommodation was beautiful with amazing views from the veranda. Everybody was so helpful and the food was great. There seemed to be food all the time. We had a great walking safari (instead of one of the drives) and we loved the massage in the spa. Game drives were great. Plenty to see and lots of photo opportunities.

Any lack of wildlife is made up for with lovely food and very enjoyable safari breaks both morning and evening particularly the sun downers!! Lovely plunge pool but no swimming pool. Alex was an excellent guide, full of knowledge but delivered in an entertaining way.
