Thank you to Madelaine and Jesse for a wonderful time, your place is beautiful and the info that you have for what to do in your area is amazing, that took us to the most incredible experience - interacting with Rambo the Elephant. We enjoyed seeing the lionesses on our game drive, thanks Jesse for your patients.

The lodge and room were extremely well appointed, the food was excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful. Jessie, the guide was very enthusiastic and ensured we had some great sightings but his driving was a bit aggressive and we got the feeling that tourists came first and wildlife second. While the lodge decor is amazing, it is centered... More

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

I spent 2 nights at this incredible property with my clients whilst on a photographic safari. Very comfortable accommodation, mouth-watering cuisine and warm hospitality. A great team, owners Henk and Liezle and managers Jessie and Madeleine made our stay truly unforgettable. The property and the overall stay at African Spirit Game Lodge was undoubtably the highlight of our Safari. It... More
