Entabeni game viewing opportunites

Planning our first trip to Africa with junior school aged children and am consiering Entabeni private game reserve. Can anyone tell me honestly what the game viewing opportunites are like? What animals are you likely to see and are there plenty of them. There seems to be very little information around about this place and it doesnt seem to have the same profile as say Kruger or Madikwe!

You are quite right - Entabeni definately doesn't have the same profile as Kruger or Madikwe. You are going to be traveling a long way to SA, so I would recommend a better and more authentic safari experience. You probably would want to avoid malaria areas like Kruger with your young children, so go for the malaria free Madikwe Game Reserve. They have many excellent lodges. Madikwe Safari Lodge (operated by CC Africa) is a great lodge and they offer wonderful childrens' programs.

Entabeni is in a beautiful area but the game viewing will probably be better in the Kruger-area or in Madikwe

Is ther more game in Madikwe then and a greater variety of it? Why would you get a more authentic safari experience here? Reviews are all very mixed for both areas.You are right we will be travelling a long way and spending a lot of money on this trip so it is important that we get it right.

Entabeni is a very popular place to go to. You have to do the extreme helicopter trip, offered now where else in South Africa. You can also enjoy a breakfast on the mountain, only accessible by helicopter! It is an experience of a lifetime!!!

We just returned from a weekend at Earthsong Lodge in Entabeni and had a wonderful time. Not for young children though - too little to do for them, but a wonderfully relaxing getaway for couples. I submitted a complete review with pictures on TripAdvisor on 3 Dec 07 - should come up within the next few days.
