I visited Entabeni with colleagues for an overnight stay and was disappointed in the overall service levels and attention to detail. We arrived around 11:30 on the first morning and had spa treatments booked. We rushed from Ravineside to Lakeside where the spa is situated without booking into our rooms at Ravineside and had to wait for almost an hour... More

Nice place, rooms are on the side of the ravine (as the name implies) which is beautiful. The buildings themselves are a little old, but not too bad. The whole place feels like it must have been really grand... a number of years back. The pool was not inviting (but it wasn't really pool weather either). The rooms are about... More

This lovely game reserve was wonderful! We spent two nights at Entabeni and took two game drives. The staff are very helpful and friendly, giving us useful information about the animals and lodge. The ravine side lodge has a fantastic view of the reserve. The lodge was clean and quiet. Sitting outside on the deck is a delight, reading for... More

The reserve itself was amazing. Great guides, beautiful land, animals in their wildlife, and nice staff. The main lodge was nice. Good food and of course a bar. The last night staff cooked outside and performed native and traditional son / dance. It was a surprise and truly made the stay memorable. The sleeping lodges were the only downside. Poorly... More

Adding to it the food was exemplary and it was a very comfortable way to be on safari. I went with my wife but this would be a great trip for an entire... More

Stayed at Ravineside för 5 nights. (traveling with Albatros). Very nice huts hanging on the ravineside with a great view. Occasionally the cute dassie family had a nightly fight or two under the hut. The rooms are basic but very cosy. If it's really breezy you feel the wind inside the hut. Animals roam around the lodge freely so walking... More
