We've been visiting our 'happy place' for over 10 years. When our daughter turned 18 there was no other place we wanted to celebrate. Thank you to Lindani staff for making the sunset picnic absolutely beautiful. We were blown away. She will never forget her amazing setting and celebration. It truly was a night never to forget because on the way back to camp we spotted an aardvark!!! A special ending to such a memorable evening.

We’ve been friends for decades. Of course, given how long we’ve known each other, the ‘hiking group’ is more of a ‘strolling’ group. What a wonderful weekend we had. The Waterberg bush is still lush and green after the late rains. We walked, cycled, went birding, ate superb Lindani meals, enjoyed a wonderful Lindani picnic, slept in comfy beds with crisp linen, and enjoyed a glass around the fire ever evening. I adore Lindani. I’ve been more than 40 times, and Lindani never ever disappoints. Thank you Lindani staff, and Sam and Peggy.

Lindani is a gem! We stayed in Skebenga, which was SUCH a treat. The staff clearly put in exceptional effort - very clean, well-equipped, and lots of small touches. Our king bed was extremely comfortable, the swimming pool pristine, the garden beautiful, the firepit great, and the inside fireplace so romantic. We couldn't have asked for more, even if we'd paid multiples of the rate requested. All the reserve's main roads seem 100% for a sedan, but I do suggest rather taking a high clearance vehicle if you have one - simply more comfortable :)

We have been visiting Lindani now for over 10 years. It's our special family retreat and it means so much to us. Living in the busy province of Joburg its the absolute peacefulness and tranquility that we love. We can ride bikes, hike, explore and not see a single soul. The staff are always so helpful and friendly but respect our privacy. Lindani always adds extra special touches to the farm houses like leaving a fresh bunch of flowers handpicked from the office gardens. The houses are comfortable and fully equipped. They even prepare and build the first firepit for us!!!! We will always regard Lindani as our favorite family destination and will continue visiting for as long as we can
