My family of 4 visited this establishment over 4 days in July 2014. My comments below must also be viewed in the context of the very modest price per head that we were charged, inclusive of meals, not drinks. SERVICE: It is true that the staff were very attentive and aimed to please – a highlight of our experience and... More

We visited twice - once in 2013 once 2012 - we love love love this place and have been to other safaris (in Madikwe and eastern cape) and whilst these were great the drives and actual safari experience didn't compare. This is a lovely chilled out reserve right in the water - we had amazing animal sightings and lots of... More

Everything about Gomo Gomo is great..the staff are amazing and very knowledgable, the animal sightings were incredible even from the deck overlooking the watering hole. Lots of praise goes to Dean, Tallis and especially Harry and Dom. We will definitely be back!

We stayed here for 2 nights with a family of 5 (children ages 10,8,6) and could not have been blown more away by the staff, the lodge, the food and the overall experience. Our private cottage was just beautiful...sheik meets camping. Though they are extremely small for intimate experiences, our children were welcomed with opened arms. Our kids were allowed... More

‘By the way there’s an elephant outside your room’ said Iwan, the manager, as he showed us to our room. The rooms are lovely & spacious and ours had a patio overlooking the water hole and sure enough there was an elephant just outside having a drink. The Lodge is beautifully situated by a water hole and has plenty of... More

We have just returned from 3 nights at Gomo Gomo and are still sad to have left! We had a great experience, mainly due to our Ranger Dean and Tracker Dominic but also the wider Gomo Gomo team.
