We've spent 7 days in the Casart Game Lodge three weeks ago and it was truly amazing.
Where do I begin !! First of all, the food is really good, Sonia is a wonderful cook and will surprise you every evening. I am really picky about my food and I've appreciated every single dish she prepared. For breakfast, there is a large choice: croissants, cereals, eggs,... My favourite were the French toasts ("wentelteefjes"), cooked to perfection by Jan!!
The rondavel in which we staid, was nicely decorated, more than clean, well equipped. It had a great veranda where you can sit or take a sunbath and watch the animals drinking at the water hole, a unique opportunity. There is also a big private jacuzzi where one can spend many hours relaxing...
We went on two game drives in the Grietjie Private Game Reserve and we were pleasantly surprised by the diversity of animals we saw. There were elephants, giraffes, hippos, wildebeests, velvet monkeys, zebra, impala, waterbuck, kudu,... There are also a lot of colorfull birds in the park. It was quite impressive!
Last but certainly not least, we really enjoyed the company and the kindness of the hosts/owners. Jan and Sonia are warm, kind people, they almost became like family to us. We felt like if we were "home" far away from home.
Words can not describe the cosy ambiance you feel while being at the Casart Game Lodge. Go there, you won't be disappointed!!! They do an amazing job in the South African bush.
PS: Jan en Sonia zijn schatten van mensen.
