Unfortunately due to the conditions where there had been a drought for 9 months, the animals were all congregated around the river and waterholes. As a result the sightings of the animals were incredible. We saw every animal and it was awesome. The ranger and tracker (Brandon and Jack) were brilliant and the staff in the resort (Amos and Sandra...

We stayed at Safari Lodge for three nights as part of a three-week honeymoon in South Africa and could not have asked for a better experience.
