I took my wife for a sunset spa package & night in the luxury tents. I have never experienced such individual attention & efficiency before. Thank you Madeline, S'pa, all the ladies in the spa and Cara for the most amazing time. We will definitely be back!!!!!

Wow what an amazing experience we had at the Rain Farm Game and Lodge. All the staff were excellent and tentative, the dinner and breakfast was awesome. We stayed in the Safari Tent accommodation which was absolutely stunning. It was a perfect get away (close to home) for our wedding anniversary.

This is a magic venue for a Wedding or just for a weekend family break. The breakfast was really good with plenty to eat. Just one suggestion would be to put hand rail on the steps going down to the bathroom in Waterbuck Chalet. Would recommend without a doubt.

I attended a three day wedding event here. The pre-wedding braai, wedding and post-wedding breakfast was all amazing! The lodge offers great dining, plus a great little indoor bar to host drinks and a fun night out.

We stayed the night in one of the luxury tents. It was an amazing accomodation with a lot of comfort. Dinner and breakfast both were very good. Also very friendly staff. We enjoyed our visit very much.

We spent the night at the Rain Farm in the Waterbuck. What an amazing experience! We took our 3 children with us and they fished, horse rode and played putt putt. The girls even braved the cold water to swim. The waterbuck unit was lovely and the spa bath was a delight to experience as was the outdoor shower. The... More

We cannot fully describe the wonderful experience we had here - everything was perfect - and we are quite hard to please! The place is beautiful with the most amazing views. The staff are fantastic - so helpful and professional but friendly too - the perfect blend. The food was out of this world - they certainly know good food... More

nice accommodation, and friendly staff but unfortunately the waiter staff were just really under trained. The three mornings that we had breakfast there not one of them did the waiter manage to supply the breakfast as ordered. A small issue but spoilt an otherwise very pleasant stay.
