Don't hesitate to book you games. Absolutely fantastic. Friendly rangers take you to wild animals safely. You can see all big five or more. They're just in front of you. Pack a warm jacket. Early morning or night wind is cold. Staff is very warm. Their good services pleased me. Free internet provided but gets down from time to time.... More

This was my first safari experience and I was totally blown away by the luxury and the service. Absolutely incredible. The lodges were very well appointed, the food was amazing - you definitely won't go hungry. The staff are very friendly and the safari jeeps were very comfortable. Would definitely go again.
