This was a gorgeous place! The safari tour guides were knowledgeable and made the game drive interesting! We saw so many animals (and 4 of the big 5!) in just one drive. We really lucked out- you will not be disappointed! and you can also self-drive if you prefer.

The Reserve is situated in a crater, this is a ideal and beautiful setting for the reserve. The summer rains turned the normally dull veld into lush green grass and trees. This time of the year it is truly very hot and humid, so beware. We were lucky to see Elephants and most of the antelope, Giraffe etc. But the rest of the big five were no where to be found. The dam is nice and full with many hippos and crocks to be seen. The restaurant is again up and running but the service remains a bit slow. Until the authorities do no resurface and widen the complete road the potholes will remain a major problem!

The whole experience was great, nothing bad except things associated with my own failings - ie. not quick enough to take a photo of the baby elephants or the rhino running past the truck
