Situated in a nice area and with a luxe accomodation, organized with very nice personal, Kololo is a must for anyone who travels the nothern part of South Afrika.Speical the possibility to walk freely over the site along not dangerous animals is fantastic. Good food completes it all.

After a long drive on a sandy road we arrived at the gates of Kololo. We had a nice lodge overlooking the Welgevonden park. It is a big surprise when you wake up in the morning and see all kind of animals walking in front of the porch. The lodge is nice decorated.

It's absolutely one of my best travel experiences. Great accommodations, great staff. Kololo Game reserve is very ecological and the game drives are peaceful. There are only two game drives aloud to enter the reservation. So no queues of Landrovers filled with tourists.
