Amazing! Just avoid room #1. Has the fuse box for bar in it and was woken up in the night to flip the switch. The food is great and the grounds are wonderful. Would recommend to anyone. Great for kids as well.

I am extremely hard to please when it comes to spa/beauty treatments. I used to be a therapist, so unfortunately I know exactly when it is done wrong. But... when Melba put her hands on me for my massage, it was like being transported to heaven. What added to the amazing experience was that our couples massage was done at the Bush Spa, which is this amazing secluded area where the birds come to drink water and the warthogs venture closer as well. These ladies are extremely professional and friendly. I can't begin to describe how hard it is to please me with a massage, so imagine how hard it would be to get me to fall a sleep? Well, Melba didn't only put me to sleep, she actually got me snoring!!
The jacuzzi is amazing. The rooms are beautiful. The staff are ALL very friendly, and it was especially nice to be helped in Afrikaans. From David at the bar to Tobias as waiter and the floor manager (who's name I have now forgotten - I'm sorry), and all the ladies at the reception. You were wonderful and made us feel as special as tourists in our own country. Thank you for making my birthday and weekend an amazing one!

Organizing of activities should be dealt with more efficiently, corresponding with your clients are very important. Had communication problem with staff i organised the trip for. Improvement thus required.

The environment was absolutely stunning. My favourite part was the spa treatment. The lodge rooms need a little updating particularly upstairs, but the view is heavenly. Friendly staff and great food.
