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!!) .

We stayed for two nights and had an absolutely amazing time. Jason and his staff were excellent, the accommodation and meals are first class, and the game viewing as good as anywhere in Africa with the bonus of having an up close experience without the hordes of vehicles of East Africa. We spotted four of the big five only missing... More

Been before but the Lodge keeps on getting better. Superb comfortable accommodation, great sightings (4 of the big 5), delicious food and very accomodating hosts who just can't do enough for you. Been to numerous lodges but this is the best and by far the best value for money. Will return soon and look forward to it.

We had the full catered option in which we appreciated the attention for the food that our kids would enjoy. The chalet was perfect for our needs with a... More

We stayed at Baobab in November for 5 magnificent nights. After driving from J.burg and stopping at the local PicknPay for our food and drink, we arrived to the friendly and welcoming faces of Nini and David. Our safari trips were everything we imagined and more. We saw 4 of the big 5 regularly with a possible leopard on our... More
