Gnu Ranch was a great stopover from Johannesburg to Botswana. Very friendly owners even if we interrupted the Springbok match they were watching. We appreciated the fact that they called us before we left home to check if we know the way and also our expected arrival time so that they can wait for us at the gate. The tree... More

Stayed in the lux tent, and was lovely. Very secluded and a great option for a romantic break! Lovely shower on deck overlooking bush! Animals bit sparse, and we went on a game drive, didnt see much, and the game truck ran out of fuel and we had to walk back (lucky no scary animals) but thought it was a... More

Canopy tree tents, good view, nature sounds, game-drive. Good for relaxing. Would like to have seen more animals. Car got stuck in loose sand, 4x4 vehicle would be more suitable for the terrain. Would go back.

Me and my fiancé got engaged at Gnu Ranch. We loved the privacy, bushy accommodation and comfortable setting as well as the fact that our dogs could've been there as well! It is the perfect place for a romantic brake away, family time or big group vacation!!

Loved the accommodation, the location and veld was just breathtaking. The cleaning staff were wonderful and friendly, they just came very late every day (after 9) so we usually cleaned the kitchens ourselves so we could prepare breakfast. But.... Issues with electricity supply, and we spent most of one day without water! Had to fetch water in a pot from... More

I assume that this place is new. The game, which is pretty sparse, is extremely shy and nervous. We stayed at one of the rock lodges, which was absolutely beautiful, I'm sure the other lodges are. However, during a game drive, we came across a rubbish dump, maybe a hundred meters across, with all of the lodge's trash. Not cool!... More
