From the minute I emailed my request for a night's stay for my sister and I, we were treated like royalty!!! Lawrence did everything he could to answer our enquiries speedily. Check in time is 8 am in the morning and check out time is 8pm the next day!! (if staying one night as we did)!!! So one glorious night and two full days to be spoilt in the spa and on game drives and a drive/walk to the Karkloof Falls!!! Everything was well worth every single star rating and more...The timeless experience is too true to believe...do whatever you want whenever you want including meals!! Game drives with Freedom (thank you Freedom for all your knowledge of the wildlife, birds and trees)!!! Most of the staff are from Zimbabwe (where my sister and I were born and raised) and we felt like home away from home with the friendliness of all the staff. The Spa has Thai ladies giving magnificent treatments very professionally (thank you Noo and Nan) and Augustine, the Assistant Manager, was a pleasure to talk to and fun to spend time with!! All of the staff are excellently professional and very very friendly without being intrusive!! And the views and wildlife.....words cannot express how therapeutic this whole experience was for me!! After a dreadful year health wise, relationship wise and job wise, this was just what I needed....an injection of Africa!!! And to share the experience with my sister..well what more can anyone ask for!!!
Thank you very much Karkloof Spa...I am sorry that I haven't mentioned everyone by name but you all know you made our experience so special and you will always be in our African hearts no matter where in the world we are living!!!
