We were there for 4 nights and the experience was incredible. Our ranger was very helpful and knowledgeable. He patiently answered all our questions, and was very friendly. He made sure that we saw the Big Five before we left the place (though we missed the leopard).
The rooms were huge and the view was incredible. We could see the giraffes, impalas, and other animals from our balcony. In the morning, we would take a break for tea and rusks and in the evening, we would break for drinks while we watch the sunset.
For dinner, we would have our ranger and the safari group dine and mingle. Overall, an excellent experience for a private game reserve.
