We already regret that we booked for only one night. Great staff is making us feel welcome in our complete and big self-catering lodge. Coffee and tea is provided, airconditioning is available too. Because we only booked one night we must do the Game-drive in the surrounding Rhino-Reserve. Actually the game-viewing already started at the pool as giraffes, warthogs, nyala... More

Excellent ranger and excellent game drives. Very good location, the rooms are well maintained. The food is prepared with care, we however did not like the main courses (no choice available) as they were too heavy for us.

The sleeping quarters were relaxing and enjoyable. Great shower after a long dusty day looking at animals. The food was excellent but the wine list was a bit lacking in quality. The beer selection was great though. Our guide was very knowledgeable and knew much about photograph.

This is the place to get away to. To forget the buzz of the city and come experience nature at its best. Had a very relaxed weekend, enjoyed the scenery and the excellent hospitality. The game drives were an amazing experience, a must do when at this lodge

Great place to be, quiet, nice/friendly staff, good beds, very nice accomodation! Great views, swimmingpool with sunbeds,. We had a very nice stay ! Better to travel to the lodge by daylight, the last 15 min. Is a gravelroad.

There is a very familiiar atmosphere and every wish is fulfilled by Tania and Kurd (?). Next to the garden there is a waterhole and one can watch antilopes and warthogs (sometimes even a predator)...
