Game was awesome and its great to get so close to the animals in a natural environment. I think Springbok Lodge is great value for money and would recommend... More

I spent just the one night at Springbok Lodge and from the warm and welcoming staff, the quality of the accommodation through to the knowledgeable and friendly rangers thought the experience was perfect. Accommodation is a tent, but this is no normal tent, you have your own veranda overlooking the reserve, a huge bed, normal (as opposed to bush) facilities... More

We had a game drive that had so... More

An awesome tented camp in a beautiful setting. Great accommodation with nice food. Highlight was the game drives and personal attention and expert knowledge of our ranger - Graham. Our only advice to them is to upgrade their towels in the bathroom.

Had an amazing time in late November 2013. Wonderful location, great staff and accommodation. Graham was our game ranger and was knowledgeable and great fun. Saw the Big 5, including a huge herd of elephants and a group of 4 lions together. On a chilly night, on returning to the room after a dinner the electric blanket had been turned... More

We spent two nights at the Springbok Lodge in November 2013 - we were most impressed by the incredible service, delicious food and our glorious game drives! Our accommodation was luxurious, but still allowed for the outdoor rustic feel with the canvas tent roofing and outdoor shower. Our personal game ranger, Mike, is a walking encyclopaedia! He also made such... More
