On a day trip we took the 11 am game drive with guide Wessel Fourie and found this excellent. We saw a good selection of animals and the guide made the experience both enjoyable and interesting. As a vet, I was impressed by the first class physical condition of the animals we saw. The drive was followed by a very... More

visit a national park like Etosha in Namibia, then a visit to a Game Lodge is a good idea. You get the chance to see animals in the open. It's like visiting a very large zoo, really. Despite the fact that there are a lot of visitors coming and going the staff deserves full credit for managing to be friendly... More

Leroy was the guide throughout and his enthusiasm and dedication to finding the best possible photo ops of all the animals was fantastic. Endless stories sharing his passion for the animals and the world that surrounded us. Stayed in a lodge in the bush... More

Fantastic value for money!! We had a wonderful 2 nights at the game lodge. We saw four of the big 5 (no leopard) and many other animals (giraffe, cheetah, hippos). However, they are very much in a game reserve rather than the wild - the lions are in their own section, the elephants are also separated and the vegetation isn't... More

We stayed for two nights in both the family room and the chalets and enjoyed every second of it. The service was absolutely amazing and over the top. It felt like everybody in the staff was aware of our special requests, this goes to waiters, chefs, game drive guides, receptionists, cleaners and bar staff. All our special requests was met...

The rangers are all great , very well briefed and holding unique insights into the various animals on the Game Park. The accommodations was lovely, cosy and just a little rustic, very comfortable. The food in the dining room was excellent and the staff... More

We spent two nights in a water hole view chalet. Spacious chalet with very nice views. The game drives were very good. Saw 4 of the Big 5, but this is a reserve, not a zoo. The food served is buffet style with meats cooked to order. Delicious! This is a family oriented place, however, our game drives were all... More

Private game reserve owned by 2 families who want children to enjoy the experience, so very child friendly. It's a lovely place, extremely well run with great food and very professional staff. Highly recommend this place. (Lume is a fantastic guide for the children too - thank you!).
