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

This was such an experience. The views, game drives, and adventure were just alot of fun. The rangers and staff were a great pleasure to be around. 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 Ravine-side for 5 nights in Feb 2014 and the entire experience was amazing from the moment we arrived until farewells from all the staff at the gate.

We had a wonderful time att Entabeni. The most amazing environment, helpful friendly staff, more food than you can possibly eat.... The room was simple but clean, comfy bed, magnificent view. The game drives were an experience for life, cheetahs and lions so close that you could pet them ( but did not of course), elephants, giraffes, crocs, hippos and... 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

The rooms are divided into clusters of 4 huts which comprised of 3 bedrooms and a common hall. You are not allowed to leave the premises of your cluster without the ranger’s escort. The room itself was rather basic and the ensuite bathroom looked old and shabby. There was a fridge at the common hall where you could chill your... More
