A super place, we will definitely be back! Luxury in the bush. Self catering was a breeze, units were beautiful and well equipped, the decks at the restaurant were wonderful places to watch the sunset. The coffee, buscuits, sundowners and snacks provided on the game drives were much appreciated and added a lovely "extra mile" touch.

We had a great stay at Kololo (with a baby of 14 months); perfect hospitality, beautiful nature where you can walk or go with the bicycle and see the animals (the dangarous animals, lions etc. are not in this part, but easily to see with another game drive). Perfect accommodation, restaurant (with stunning view!) and pool. Many thanks to the... More

Amazing team who goes continuously the extra mile - best game reserve for biking, hiking, barn fires, game drives in nature reserve and big 5 which is right adjacent. The road to get to Kololo would need some improvement but all other experiences are special.

Excellent lodge with friendily, professional personel. The park is excellent. The road to the lodge can be challenging but that's how you know you're in the bush. We stayed for one night and enjoyed every minute of it.

Kololo is the perfect safari destination for families, group of friends and photographers. It is malaria-free, child friendly and home to a large variety of animals! Kololo offers the... More

We had a wonderful stay. Your game ranger / tourist guide, Ryan Trollip, is excellent. He did everything to find animals. Even though we only saw elephants, rhino and other buck it was enjoyable. He stopped at some places and explained things to us. He mentioned a cheetah also that had a kill that morning. the other gusts on the... More

We stayed in Kololo for two nights and had a great time! Did two Welgevonden gamedrives and one at Kololo. The professional and enthousiastic rangers made this an unforgetable experience! The lodge itself is so beautifull, would come back for sure!
