A group of us stayed at the Springbok lodge 29th of July to 1st of August . The tents were very comfortable, electric blankets, baths awaiting your return from the game drive in the evening, with candles and flower petals. Loved showering under the stars, with ample hot water.
Game drives were awesome, Mike hosted and drove, his knowledge of the wild life and where to find was first class, and his driving skills when a group of Lions were found one morning, move over Jason Button. We saw Lions every day, and other wild life close up, in natural surroundings and in the mornings the hot water bottles and capes were added bonuses to keep out the chill.
Sunrise hot chocolate, and sundown drinks just added to the experience. Ample food , well presented, at every meal. Any drawbacks just one, not everyone drinks sherry and a carton of orange juice would have been nice, was asked for and declined.
