We stayed for two nights in the tented lodges this place was the best thing we did whilst in South Africa. Our guide Jan was excellent really informative and we managed to get very close to a lot of animals which was amazing. The food and service was excellent especially the dinners. If you are coming here make sure you have a decent camera some binoculars and warm clothing and first thing in the morning it can be really cold.
