This place is fantastic. It was the highlight of our trip. We did a game drive followed by a walk each morning and a game drive each evening. The location is fantastic. The lodge has its own watering hole letting you sit for hours and see animals come and go. The food was great and plentiful, the staff helpful and... More

12th April 2015.. Arrived around 11.30 ish, welcomed by Ross after a few formalities we were soon mingling with the other guests who were talking about the morning drive they had been on. Couldn't wait for the afternoon's drive at 4pm. A quick lunch at 2pm prepared by " Johnson" everything was perfect. Bags in room and back to the... More

Gomo Gomo was recommended to me by people we met while traveling in Borneo last year as an excellent safari lodge near Kruger NP. Their recommendation did not let me down. I'm so glad we took their advice. My husband and I spent 3 nights on safari at Gomo Gomo which was the right amount of time. We saw all... More

We recently visited Gomo Gomo Game Lodge and what an unbelievable time we had. The place has to be seen to be believed and makes for an unforgettable experience. The staff especially our ranger Ross were as good as it gets and looked after us in every way possible and the morning and evening safari drives were amazing, made even... More

This was our first Safari and we did not know what to expect. We were blown away with the accommodation, staff, location and atmosphere. Saw the big 5 and many more. The chef 'Johnson' is an absolute legend and created an amazing meal for the guests every night. My girlfriend suffers from an intolerance to certain foods and he went... More

First time on a safari and maybe the first time is always the best but we loved it here; not the most luxurious place we've stayed in but the setting beside the watering hole is hard to beat with birds and wildlife in attendance throughout the day and the Rangers (Ross and Lou) were brilliant. It's long days for them... More

We stayed 4 nights in February. Excellent service and very friendly staff, spotlessly clean thatched huts Had 2 game drives a day and saw the Big 5 plus many more animals. The Lodge is on a waterhole where you can watch the animals while relaxing when not on game drives. The evening meal was eaten around an open fire. .I... More

We had the opportunity to spend two nights at Gomo Gomo with our 5 kids (16,14,14, 12 and 9). It was amazing. We loved the small, intimate feel, and the personal service. We had very knowledgeable, professional and kind rangers (Harry and Dean) who took the time to answer all our questions and went out of their way to show... More

We stayed at the property for 3 nights & were able to do a daily morning game drive from 6:00 - 9:00 am, a bush walk for 30 to 60 minutes that starts after an amazing breakfast at around 10:30 am & an evening game drive...

Set right beside a large watering hole, breakfasts always brought entertainment (including an elephant right to our hut) which continued throughout the day. Although not a luxury lodge or the smartest, Gomo Gomo is a small friendly community with knowledgable guides and trackers who were equally excited with every big spotting - thanks Ross and Dom. We had a fabulous... More
