The reserve is not so big. If you've been to other parks, you won't be impressed. We saw only elephants, giraffes and rhinos besides antilopes. And we had to search for them. It's getting really cold, freezing in a 4x4, so take multilayer clothes and a hat.

This is an amazing large wildlife area. All through it is a cobblestone road that you follow. You could drive through this for days and not see it all. We were lucky enough to see a Leopard among many other wild animals.

loved this safari trip. This was my first time ever doing a safari and I am so glad it turned out okay. Even though it rained the weekend when we went, the evening that we were scheduled to do our drive, it didn't rain, the weather was perfect. We were told that there was a good chance we wouldn't see any lions, especially because of the rain, however as we were driving down the mountain a couple of lions came on our path and walked right pass our truck what an unbelievable experience. Would definitely do this again.

Great safari, saw the Big 5. Breakfast to order as you arrive back from sunrise safari. Lodges fit for royalty (in fact South African Prime Minister arrived as we were checking out...)

it is very safe, it depends on your luck, you may see the big five- all of them - and you may see very few of them. but please do not miss it, It is something to remember.
