The staff are friendly and efficient and you will see a wide variety of animals in an environment that is as close to their real environment as you can get. Getting There I drove from Cape town to...

The staff are so helpful, the ranchers can not do enough for you. We happened on a tortoise wandering the grounds, the ranchers were excited as we were! They gave an impromptu talk on tortoises, it was wonderful. The two safaris were incredibly special, you just have to remember the animals are not performers and will show themselves if they... More

We had a chalet/rondovel with view on the watering hole where apparently animals come to drink (we didnt see them as in winter they have enough water around) but still the view and sunsets are very...

Friendly staff and great guides! Ari is great with the kids as is Abie. Highly recommended. We were there in 2010 and the reserve has expanded exponentially since then. The number of animals and the guides knowledge makes it a fantastic experience. The elephant interaction with Moya and Selati was a highlight for the kids. Don't think about it, just... More

This was our first taste of a private game reserve and while it is small and easily accessible, it provided us with the game drive opportunity we were looking for. Our Ranger was very knowledgable and both the early evening and early morning experiences were great. We were part of a large travelling party and the level of service and... More
