After visiting many other game lodges in South Africa over the last number of years, Kaingo is a slice of heaven, spectacular! The ultimate! Best Bush experience ever, abundant wildlife, stunning, comfortable and family friendly. Great food, service and hospitality, Ranger Andre - world class, wow 👍👍- probably the best conservation reserve in SA and best gamer ranger / teacher! Stunning animal encounters, first time that kids could not stop talking about their experience and learning about different fauna and flora! Best in class Thank you to Cisca from Buscapes who arranged the booking and made the reservation - exceptional service
We celebrated a special birthday with family members at Kaingo Game Reserve. The experience was completely unforgettable - from the friendly and welcoming staff to the beautiful lodge, it was just wonderful. The food served was beyond delicious and no request made was too much for the staff. They really made the weekend so special. The sightings were some of the best we have ever experienced and the knowledge and enthusiasm of the rangers was just incredible.
We stayed in the Leopard Lodge which is beautifully finished. (05:00 alarm call of a lion roaring 20m outside the fence!) The food in the restaurant was presented with care and elan, and was very nice. The game drives were fun and the ranger very patient with us and knowledgeable. The bush walk was fun as well. This is a high quality hotel in which to relax and observe game (we saw 4 of the big 5, and a herd of sable - beautiful, and lots more) and learn, it is a not a drive through tick off the animals and go place. We really enjoyed it and would recommend it.
We visited Kaingo Game reserve in January and had an amazing time. The reserve is exceptionally maintained, friendly, and catered or more than our needs. Our guide Andre is friendly, filled with an abundant amount of knowledge across many topics and specifically the animals, including fauna and flora. The reserve was flexible and very accommodating, they exceeded any expectations we had and we highly recommend Kiango Game Reserve. The accommodation was warm, clean, comfortable. Food was spectacular and delicious.
Our family stay at Kaingo was a return to safari after 10 years of absence. We couldn’t have asked for a better return. The main lodge is beautiful. It is fenced in a subtle way which makes it OK for the us and the children to roam free within the garden but whiteout loosing the connection with the wild game. The diversity of the surrounding landscape is astonishing, and we saw plenty of animals and birds. Another draw is the millennia old cave art that can be found on the property. What made the experience even more outstanding was the dedication of our ranger Andre, who was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, solicitous and this both with my husband and myself and with our two daughters aged 11 and 14. He took us on game drives, on nature hikes and we went fishing too! We always felt safe and we learned a lot. Whenever we came back Etienne and his friendly and helpful team took care that we didn’t go hungry or thirsty and they had no problem catering for our dietary needs. Thank you to the whole team and to the beautiful Kaingo game and nature reserve. We hope that one day we might return.…
