Very professional approach by staff and we felt at home. The room were neat and tidy everyday. We enjoyed the early morning atmosphere while sitting on the verandah. The drive to the lodge was scenic as well. We will be back soon. Sydney and Mbali Kopong

Very professional and friendly hosts. My reception at the lodge was very pleasant. The cottage was very attractive and clean Very nice pub and lounge area to relax with friends. The surrounding bushes and plenty animals lends for a very relaxing atmosphere.

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

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 !!
