The Bush Braai(South African for B B Q) was not good due to the fact that there was inadiquate fire to cook all the food for 6 people. We ended up going to the Lodge for dinner .

We own a timeshare unit here and it is always a lovely holiday. The views from the chalets are amazing and the wildlife is abundant. The staff are all lovely and helpful; even coming out to check on an 'injured' mouse who turned out to just be lazy. Nothing is too much trouble and the activities are well organised and... More

Lunch and breakfast was at the main restaurant, buffet style, with a variety of meals for all tastes. Sundowners were served in the bush on our game drive, and dinner was served under the trees at a venue... More
