Everything about this place was first class. When we arrived, we were greeted by their friendly staff and were made to feel at home. We were told about what was happening during our stay. We had a two safaris, one in the early evening and one in the morning, a tour of the reptile exhibit, and a tour of their cheetah program. We were also explained about the meal arrangements. All this was included in the price.
My room was a bungalow with a thatch roof and it was all in character of being on a game reserve. From my deck, I could see several herds of animals. I got my binoculars out and discovered that I was looking at Zebras and Springbosk. Upon further exploration, I saw two giraffes. I knew I was at place that was special. The safaris were incredible. I could rave on and on about it. We saw the big five and many other forms of wildlife . The guide was informative and made the trip exciting and memorable. I have amazing pictures to show for it.
The food was excellent and plentiful. Both the dinner and breakfast were buffet style with a wide variety of food. One of the options for dinner was barbeque venison which was very tasty.
If you don;t have the time to go to Kruger National Park, I would strongly recommend you come here. You won't be disappointed.
