I stayed here recently the last week of June. What an amazing experience! Hannes (the ranger) and lodrick (the tracker) are like batman & robin on the safari, the communication, experience and passion of these 2 is profound and you will see it on every game drive. We traversed southern thorybush reserve and didnt feel like it was ever crowded with too many vehicles. These 2 are alot of fun to be around (lots of jokes and personality!) but will always keep you safe. Nature is nature - unpredictable but we were so lucky to see the big 5 and much more thrilling encounters: black rhino, baby cubs! lion and lioness mating and tracking a leopard eating its kill at night. Kruger is the place of my dreams right now: beautiful sunsets, sunrises & starry nights. The lodge was intimate & wonderful, I'm so glad our original booking at kapama got switched to this place. Comfy beds. Fire and BOMA every night. We felt pampered by all the staff, Antionette (the adorable cook) served us 5 star meals at every course. Everything is home-made down to the biscuits in your room. I really did not want to leave. Til next time Hannes, your wife & staff. Don't think twice book here!!!!!
