What a Fantastic Experience ! This 'Family Moon' -( family and friends on Honeymoon with the bridal Couple) was so out of the 'ordinary'. Within hours of arriving we felt totally relaxed and in 'safari' mode. Game drives were most informative and sightings - plentiful. This trip bought back so many memories of the 70's in Sabi Sand.

Baobabridge was such an amazing unique lodge with stunning private rooms. With the roaring of a lion in the night, what more can you ask for from a true African getaway such as this. Thank you to the friendly staff and to Jason for the very warm hospitality. I will surly be going back. :)

This was my second time staying at Baobab Ridge and it didn't disappoint. It is a perfect mix of safari fun and relaxation. With the inclusion of their pool right behind a waterhole, the beautiful chalets that offer privacy, and great communal resources that make it perfect for larger groups and family. We couldn't have asked for a better host... More

Been there with friends, taken up the whole resort for 4 days. It was simply heaven. The nature, the animals, the peaceful atmosphere bathing in a luxury resort with a wonderful staff. Thank you Jason, David and all others for making our stay a everlasting experience. Long live nature, May out last forever.

Thank you so much to Jason and the super friendly staff for such a wonderful experience at Baobab Ridge.

This was the trip of a lifetime! Baobab Ridge had more than exceeded my expectations with their beautiful accommodations, delicious meals and an amazing host and friendly staff members. We also had a fantastic guide, David, who made sure we saw the "Big 5" and more wildlife than we ever though possible. Jane C

Baobab Ridge exceeded our expectations in every way. From the greeting when we arrived to the hugs we exchanged with Jason and his staff when we checked out 4 days later. Our up close and personal experience with the animals of the bushveld took our breath away - the big 5 and far beyond (thank you David!). Let's not forget... More

Being February, we were concerned about the heat and mosquitoes but the cottages are air conditioned and the window openings are well netted and so insect-proof. Jason, the host, was a delight, ensuring all the guests had a good time.

We stayed with Jason and his crew for four nights. What an amazing experience that is 5 star service all away around. We saw all of the big five and so many animals up close in their natural habitat on every drive. If you travel to South Africa Boabab Lodge is a must do. Being from Canada I had no... More

Fantastic - We had a fabulous 5 days ... saw 4 of the big 5 (elephant and rhino in particular only metres away ... not another vehicle in sight - loved it ... and slightly scary!!) . Pete Wilson was our amazing guide, organising 'sundowners' where we could get out and just enjoy bush sounds and sights with a glass... More
