The stay was made all the more special because of the game that wonders around freely. There was no communication between the reception and the rooms - wifi was offered but that was very intermittent. Very enjoyable non the less

It was great, my mum who is 76 years old accompanied me and the staff at the lodge were very accommodating. However, I was very disappointed to note that the room did not have an air conditioner and a television. But overall it was great.

Cannot believe that such a beautiful lodge is right on our doorstep, Trevor and I had such a great time and wished we could have stayed longer. All the staff were extremely helpful at all times, and our dam unit was out of this world, have booked to go back in March - cannot wait. Thanks to all of you.

We have come before as a... More

Thoroughly enjoyed 2 night stay at Rain Farm. Food was great, the place amazing, the giraffe and zebra relaxing a few metres from our porch at our riverside cottage. An enjoyable experience with pellet-gun shooting and archery. Overall wonderful getaway. Thank you.

It was a beautiful though rainy time. We enjoyed the massages and I the horse riding. The one game drive, complimentary, we went on was the only down side to our trip- no introduction from the " driver" and inaccurate information was given.

Beautiful setting, I thoroughly recommend tent no 6. This is 'glamping' at its best. You can see the game wandering across the scenery. There is a pool near the bar and restaurant. Service is a bit slow but we have all the time in the world. The staff are lovely and alway willing to please. Our second visit and the... More
