Very nice people, a beautifull surrounding and tasty dinner and breakfast. We began with a horsbackride safari. The man who gided us was a very pleasent man. He knew allot about nature and the animals and had allot of humor. The next day we went on safari with the fourwhealdrive and unfourtunately it didn't stop raining.

Great game drive with a passionate reserve ranger. Despite the rain, we saw the majority of animals and got good photos with the cover on the jeep. There was a lovely fire to warm us up on our return to the reception.

Out of Africa - this is how we felt! Wonderful experience, quiet and simple accomodation, lovely staff! Arnelle was an excellent game tour guide. We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed 2 game rides (included in the price).

I booked this from the UK and so only had the photos and reviews to go by and thankfully I was not disappointed...it was a truly fantastic place and experience. The bedrooms are tastefully and elegantly chic, with beautiful furniture, clearly thought through by someone with an eye for what a visitor would appreciate. I was fortunate to look into... More

This is my 6th trip around the reserve - and the most disappointing. It is a favourite place to take our visitors and previously we have had a number of very good guides. Sadly our guide - who told me he had been there for 10 years did not match up to his predecessors (as there are currently only 2... More

There is so much potential at PBGR, but there are a few things which, in my opinion, need to be improved. The rooms are spacious and reasonably well appointed, although I believe they should have fridges available as it's not always possible to find a staff member from which to get a drink. There is nowhere for younger kids to... More

The game drive and horseback ride was wonderful! The accommodation average, needs small touches like for example mini fridge in rooms. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The food not good! For the price we expected a better breakfast and dinner. We stayed 4 nights and dinner for the first and last night was the same; a lamb chop,... More

Our party of 5 adults went on a horseback safari on the afternoon we arrived and then the game drive the next morning. On both occasions we had a wonderful time and the guides were informative and helpful We only stayed one night in the Baroness lodge and it was very average. Although the staff were friendly, the lodge itself... More

This game park allows you to get around on horse back , so that one can get really close to the animals and have some autonomy to stop and take photos whenever you want. Our guide Robert was well informed and friendly. Unfortunately we had to wait half an hour to start our tour as some other people on the... More
