This is a great lodge for a wonderful safari experience. The food is wonderful and the people knowledgeable and friendly. Peaceful place to relax and see animals in their natural environment. They have a watering hole for the animals who come by during the day. We went on a drive from there and saw Rhino, Giraffe, jackles and a small... More

If you're looking for a safari experience that involves great food, beautiful animals in their natural habitat and a hostess who listens to your needs, THIS IS IT! Our party of 12 stayed at the fairly new guest lodge and had our dinners by the fire in the open air Boma. We were introduced to the calls of the lion... More

We stayed at the fully catered lodge and really enjoyed the stay. The food was outstanding - the best we had in the three week we were in SA. It was so nice to sit on our terrace and watch the animals literally on the doorstep. Hippos, water buck, impala, baboons to name a few. We would definitely consider a... More

What a lovely stay we had during our breakaway weekend near the Kruger National Park. Both the owners was friendly and would go that extra mile to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. We had the whole 3 bedroom house to ourselves with a patio and pool. The owner took us on a game drive as soon as we... More

This lodge is a real gem in all its facilities and graceful hosts. They have real good clean lodge and a pool, patio overlooking the rivebed where animals keep moving in and out. We took a safari tour and treated to one of best dinners. Dont miss the culinary skills of hostess.
