We loved everything about Bomani, the location, the wonderful staff in the lodge, our fun guides Vusa and Aubz, and of course the wildlife. This wasn't just about seeing animals and birds, it was a total experience from arriving on the Elephant Express to the toast cooked on the campfire for breakfast, a surprise evening dinner set up in the...

Bomani had everything we could want. Accommodation was tranquil, yet exciting. Staff and food superlative. The experiences around the game park were stunning and absolutely extraordinary. Cheetahs, Elephants, Zebra, Lions, Giraffe, Hippos, unique birds etc etc etc. We would recommend the Elephant Express for something unique.

A sliding door opened onto a patio about 2.5 metres wide, and full length. The roof was traditional grass thatched and about 6-7 metres high at its highest point. It was an open plan,...
