We spent a very enjoyable 7 nights in a private lodge in the park over Christmas. Being in the middle of the bush but in a lovely house with a pool and large garden was a very relaxing experience. However if you come to Dinokeng to see the all of the Big 5 you will need a lot of luck... More

My beef stew was excellent (not too spicy) and served with 2 vegetables and rice. the portion was just enough and not too overwhelming. we went on our own walk near the restaurant between main meal and deserts and enjoyed seeing a jackal running in the distance. we've...

We are currently spending a couple of days here. There are a couple of concerns around this being a Big 5 reserve. The quantity of Big 5 animals lacks badly and chances to see any of these are very slim. Most of the reserve are not accessible to the public and private areas that are, are scarcely populated by most... More

We spent a few days in this big 5 reserve and it was absolutely incredible- if you go definitely do one of the game drives through Mongena Lodge- their game ranger and tracker where amazing and we saw 3 of the 3 big 5 with them.

I only had a short time to see game, and this place was great. The staff was amazingly generous and helpful, our guide was top notch, and I got some great photographs.

We spent a weekend camping at Dinokeng Lodge! Hoping for some peace and quiet turned into 2 nights of hell! The Friday night a bunch of young people camping found it fit to party on till the early hours of the morning! Saturday we spent exploring the Game Reserve, expecting to see the wild animals, the only ones we saw... More

Fantastic experience:) Our Sunset Safari was a beautiful experience, Both tracker and driver were very enthusiastic and keen to share their knowledge and understanding of the flora and fauna. They did a great job and tailored the trip to our individual needs and interests. Compliments and thanks to Jesse and Dafrika. We had a delicious meal in the restaurant afterwards.... More

“African Bush Experience of the highest order” This was something that we had been looking forward to for a long time, we were not disappointed. It was just incredible. We had two extremely well trained trackers, Jesse and Dafnika both these guys were a pleasure and were the reason that we had such an awesome experience. The reserve itself is... More

The park is only 50k north of Pretoria and easily accessible via the N1, its only a short drive. Over the past 4 weeks we have been to 3 other game parks in Namibia and South Africa and this one would be up there with the best. Plenty of wildlife and very few people so it was very relaxing. yes... More
