Who would have know that there was a game farm on the north coast. We went for an early morning game drive. No big 5 but loads of other animals none the less. The guide was very knowledgeable. He indicated that they will be expanding and introducing more animals shortly.

Well done, we came there for our first anniversary. All was a secret from my partner and you guys kept it that way, she was blown away and we had an absolute blast. I would recommend rain farm to anyone who wants to escape the city for the weekend.

Great weekend away, haven't experienced service like that in years! Always friendly and helpful. The food was top class. We had the 8 sleeper Unit and we had more then enough space and the entertainment area was perfect.

We were extremely impressed by the high level of service and staff interaction. The best part about Rainfarm for us was this fact - the service was exceptional. Food is superb. Setting is tranquil. Spa is a little basic and sparse and cold.
