This was a great outing, which started with high-tea at the lodge and end with sun downers on the banks of a dam occupied by a pod of Hippos. We was a pride of Lions and were privileged to hear the male roar. We were privileged to see multiple sightings of Rhino in the their natural habitat. A great reserve... More

This was my last day in Africa and I saw some cool stuff... but this was one huge disappointment. The first thing the guide said was there was no longer a walk with the cheetahs and that our walk in the game reserve was going to be short. With all the joking in this culture, I thought he was kidding..... More

Nice breakfast, very early start (6:15 am), but we did not actually walk with the cheetah. Yet, we could stroke a cheetah and a leopard which was awesome!

one night was pent here during our time in the Kruger area, and this was our bit of luxury, nice cabins in the grounds which you got escorted to after dark, with the sand swept every day so you could see the tracks in the morning, excellent game drives at dawn and dusk with a very knowledgeable guide (despite him...

In one day at Tshukudu, we saw lions on a game drive and got to pet a caracal, cheetah, and leopard. This place is a must visit if you like big cats. We also saw plenty of other game. It's an amazing place not to be missed.

We did the "walk with the big cats" which included a walk with two male cheetahs, a visit with the leopards, and the most informative bush walk we have experienced in the three years we have been doing safari's. We did not stay at the lodge, so can't comment on the accommodations. The walk with the big cats, however, was... More

Went on a Big Cat Walk with two cheetahs. We got to pet them, be really close with them. The climbed trees, played with each other, saw them running, not at their top speed but close enough. We did not stay at the lodge, just went for the cat walk so I cannot say anything about the accomodation.

We did this as part of our stay at Nyati Lodge. We did a game drive, which involve a lot of of the road driving to get close to animals etc. We did get very close to a family of lions.

The accommodations and staff were nice. The food was good with an exceptional kitchen staff and chef who cooks the best desserts! We saw a mother leopard and her two male cubs that made the whole stay exceptional. This place is really trying to make your stay a good one. It is evident in all they are doing, Good place... More
