I was surprised to know that the 5000 hectare Game Reserve belong to an Indian... It's a proud moment for every Indian... Very well maintained reserve.. Have great animals in cages and also in open.. The place is non alcoholic.. In evening there is a local African good dance event..

It is a game reserve and I did a total of two safaris there with my guide Innocent who was both experienced and informative. I was staying in their lodge which was amongst the best that I've ever stayed in. It was... More

We saw lots of elephants. a couple of them got a bit excited and tried to chase us away which was quite chilling but also very exciting. We came across a lion pride... More

Special mention about Answer the ranger who took us for the drives. He was knowledgeable & friendly and patiently answered all our queries and... More

It is a very large property, the lodge rooms i.e their high end rooms are a little more inside the reserve and are very spacious with a good view. It also has a jacuzzi. Food is only... More
