We had a great time saw a large number of animals on safari. The rooms where really nice and sun downers cold. Definately recommended for a well priced private game reserve experience. Also saw giraffes and elephants on the drive out of the reserve

LOvely friendly, comfortable lodge. great game drives, friendly helpful staff. I can wait to go back, Was lucky to see hyena and wild dog collaring, and saw the dogs the next day running wild. Also saw Rhino dehorning. So not only normal safari, but extra exciting experiences as well. AMAZING

We had a 4 day stay. Had 6 game drives with Marli as our guide, each drive was 100% . Spotted a huge variety of Birds and game large and small- even a herd of elephant with young ones....and the rest of the Big Five gang. Would gladly go back.

very hot in the rooms at night. No air-conditioning just a pverhead fan which didn't do much. not that much game in the area and the game ranger felt it was too far to travel down south where there was more game.

Dear Hilton, Thank you for your time in writing a review. December is the middle of our summer and we apologies for the discomfort you had with the heat. Our units have air-conditioning and the fans usually help to cool down the unit. The Reserve is big and we are unable to reach all the areas in ONE drive. We have no control over the game movements plus the rain and tall grass makes game viewing more challenging as the visibility is less and the animals are more dispersed.

Fantastic time at African Spirit. Werner was an amazing guide and made our stay even more enjoyable. I recommend African Spirit and will go back. The food was superb and plentiful. The accommodation was very comfortable.
