Could not rate this experience high enough! Nothing to fault. Stayed in Wild Dog tent which even though it doesn't face direct on to the reserve you still get a good enough view. Champagne on arrival, informative safari and great food. The communal eating and tour makes you feel like you are actually on safari. Would 100% visit again, would... More

We stayed at the Livingstone cottage for one night in November 2013. We got a great deal through Living Social half price. On arrival we were met by our ranger Sally with a glass of champagne each. She explained what was going to happen during our stay. She then took us to look around the mansion in the grounds. This... More

Stayed for 1 night with 3 friends. On arrival we were met by Sally, the ranger who made our stay extra special with her friendliness, knowledge on all the animals and bright and cheery ways. After having a safari tour around the safari park where we saw, rhinos, elephants, giraffes, zebras, wildebeest, several species of antelope, ostriches, aftican wild dogs,... More

We arrived at the park around 2.30pm and took our time wandering round to see what day trippers do at the site. At 4pm we 'checked in' and were welcomed with a drink of Amarula, juice or champagne. Once everyone was gathered we put our bags on the minibus to be transported to our tent and we were driven round... More

We took a bit of a chance and booked this for Oct 3rd. Was worried it might be cold and miserable, but despite us having a massive storm on the Thurs eve our lodge/tent was cosy and warm. The whole thing was so well organised, we really felt looked after. Tim and Chloe were always on hand to tell us... More

We stayed here on Friday night and had a fantastic time. The rangers were friendly and knowledgeable and created a relaxed atmosphere from the start. The evening safari was great - all the animals were out and about, doing their stuff - and we were delighted with our tent, complete with double bed. As we sat on our veranda sipping... More

We booked in at 4pm, the staff that meet us were amazing, they were so helpful and sat us down and provided us with a... More

Myself and 12 others stayed at Livingstone Lodge on Friday night for my hen celebrations and it was the best hen do I have ever been on (and not just because it was my own). Our safari guides, Ellie and Tim were absolutely amazing and a special mention to Ellie (I really hope I got her name right) for joining... More

Stayed at the Livingston lodge camp site over the weekend, brilliant location, excellent food and the African Safari tour has an authentic feel added by the genuine South African rangers, ours was Andrew who added an interesting and thoughtful aspect to the tour.
