First of all the staff - they were first and foremost the most important part of our stay. They accommodated us as much as they could, helpful at all times and always had a cheery smile for us. Our group was seven senior students and four adults spread across the accommodation. The girls ended up in one room ( all... More

We watched the Zulu dancers, which was an educational experience - make sure you tour the houses afterwards. The game drive was a bit disappointing compared with some I've done - it was pricey too. Still there were giraffe, wildebees, zebra and impala. All around a posh housing complex, which was weird.

Thanks for your review and your feed back. Unfortunately in the current 2 year drought some of the animals have moved onto the south facing slopes where there is more moisture. This is in the housing estate which is not ideal. After the rain a few days ago the animals are moving back into the reserve. We hope to see... More

The experience was once in a lifetime for me as I will never go on such a bumpy safari again. Would not suggest for the faint hearted or for little kids. It's a very lovely experience but the ride is way too bumpy. Best stick with the other entertainment available.

Thank you for your review. The game drive is a 4x4 experience and can get bumpy which nornally excites the youngsters. I will speak to my drives to make sure they are not going over bumps at excessive speed. We hope to see you again More

I paid for the village tour and dance and croc and snakes park. I went to see the horrible croc and snakes park, nothing fascinating, no tour of the village was given to us as advertised. The dancers looked tired, no effort there... It was a true waste of time for me and my family. We drove a distance for... More

The kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves.....the sheer closeness to dangerous animals like the snakes and crocodiles proved to be a thrill for them. We strolled around the crocodile ponds and the reptile cages. The curio shop has some really gorgeous African arts and goods, we purchased some necklaces and bracelets. Bathroom facilities are kept very clean .We watched a live show... More
