This was our first esperience with safari and we were truly stunned by the beauty, the atmosphere, the kindness - everything round this place is unbelievable! You are transported into a different world... A very nice one too. We were lucky enough to see four of the big five on the first drive, and the Lions the day after! Many other animals on the remaining three days we were there. The lodge is stunning and comfortable, total eight (total 16 guests) spacious large cottages hidden in the bush, not visible from your private patio and small pool. Food and service is food and plentiful. Consider taking the jet from nelspruit to impala landing strip, (owned by sir richard brandson who has two resorts in the reserve), the expense is marginal compared to the excitement of flying over in your own private jet and saving yourself two hours of driving.
