The ROOMS - Absolutely beautifull, modern and very large rooms. Each suite has its own private wooden deck overlooking the valley. Everything is stylishly decorated with great attention to detail. The views of the bush and river, valley and cliffs are visible from every window!!
The STAFF - it must be the fresh air or something because all the staff we met were just the nicest and most caring people ever! Well done! Natie and Magda WILL impress you with their knowledge and professionalism.
The GAME DRIVES - One word: Amazing!! Apart from the large variety of Antilope and Gazelle's like the Impala's, Eland, Kudu's and Blue Wildebeest, we also saw Lions, Buffalo, Rhino's, and Elephants!! Wow!! The birdlife is abundant and we even saw Vultures in action. The bush and trees are very unique to the area and great attention is given to remove all alien plants. Well done! What a great experience to go on early morning and late afternoon Game Drives every day - and then, being spoiled with a "half way" refreshment stop in the bush - what an amazing experience!!
The FOOD: The best menu/food and attention to detail we have ever experienced!! Seven star all the way!! It was just too difficult to fit the chef in our suitcases!!
Lastly, All six of us visiting wanted to stay longer. A week was too short!!! THE BEST GAME LODGE IN SOUTH AFRICA!!!
