Some memories could never truly be captured on camera. Thank you to Madelaine and Jes, for this amazing experience. This was truly a special and fantastic holiday for our Australian family that had accompanied us. At first when I booked this place I had expected it to be one of those regular self-catering places but when we arrived, we were... More

We visited African Spirit with family from Switzerland and were all very impressed. We stayed in the self-catering units, which were well equipped and very comfortable. All the staff were friendly and helpful and the game drives were very worthwhile and enjoyable. Our stay was value for money and I would definitely recommend it !!

We had the most amazing time at African Spirit. The staff were all so friendly and the accommodation is luxurious while still maintaining an African feel to it. We so enjoyed the game drives and were so lucky seeing everything except leopard. Stopping for drinks and snacks half way in the bush is really special. The game drivers are very... More

Very friendly service, chalet rooms clean and neat, lodge location on hill good. Self catering chalet could have been placed with better view and area from patio to picket fence to small. Game drive a pleasure with lots of game. Enjoyed it very much.

This is a budget lodge option compared to other in the reserve we have stayed at before. We were greeted by a friendly lady at reception, who took us to our room/chalet. Chalet was neat, tidy and clean. But nothing to write home about. But we were in the bush so I did not care for that too much. The... More

As hosts, Henk and Liezle Brink could not have been more gracious. The accommodations at the African Spirit Game Lodge were found to be just as described; exceptionally clean and serviced daily by their exceptional staff. Everything was perfect.

We traveled as a group of 6. Loved the people, food, animals and the whole experience. Made forever friends on the trip. We got close to all the animals and learned so much. The food was incredible. Can't say enough about the 5 star service and the experience that will stay with us forever. Thank you!!!
