My husband and I had such a wonderful time at Vlei lodge we didn't want to go home!!The staff was excellent in every way: we looked forward to each drive with Prince, the tracker and Devon our ranger. The pair together are so much fun to get to know. Prince has so much experience tracking and understanding the movement of animals in the wild- he found us elephants, cheetah, leopard and lions. Decon our ranger was so dynamic and knowledgable of not just the animals, but of the trees and birds. If you are into birds and trees- he's the man you want guiding you through the bush. After each drive was over, we looked forward to seeing Bhekis, Precious and the rest of the staff for some of the most amazing meals I have had. If you have a chance, you definitely want to stay at Vlei Lodge!!!
