Thank you for your review and feedback. We always take this into account to improve our guest experience and service. There are currently 2 lion prides in Welgevonden. It's unfortunate that you weren't able to spot them during your stay. Hopefully the other beautiful sightings and experiences made you trip worthwhile! Kind Regards, Kololo Game Reserve

Excellent three days over Christmas at Kololo - a large family group ranging in age from 70 to six months all enjoyed themselves thoroughly. The accommodation is superb - large beds, beautiful bathrooms, useful kitchenettes and outdoor areas. King's and Queen's Villas were super - so well equipped and exuding a style very much in keeping with their surroundings. We...

A wonderful peaceful place. Our family were made to feel so welcome from the minute we arrived. We were a party of 13 with an age range of 6months to 70. The children were in awe of the nyala family outside the villa. Even hand feeding them. Walking with giraffes was so special. The staff and Rangers were fantastic. Thank...
