We had a magical three days at this reserve. All of the staff are very helpful and wanted to make our stay comfortable. Our game drives were with Matt, he provided us with some life long memories. His knowledge of the animals were second to none and he did his utmost to find the animals we particularly wanted to see. The children,aged 8 & 10, didn't want to leave when it was time to go. The food is plentiful and the accommodation is comfortable. We saw 4 out of the big 5, there have been no sightings/indications of leopard in the reserve for over 6 months so if you specifically want to see this you may be disappointed. I would have no problems recommending this reserve especially if you are taking children along. Special thanks to Matt, he made our stay unforgettable.
