Had a great time . The game drives were the highlight of our stay. Shaun our ranger was excellent and very knowledgeable. We saw so many animals and birds, from dung beetles to elephants and rhino. Enjoyed sleeping in the luxury tents and the outside shower was good fun.

From the booking of the accomodation with Wendy at the front office, to the superb services of Ranger Siya who made the stay an absolute pleasure with his knowledge and willingness to assist and advise. So if you looking for a place in the bush to relax view game or be pampered, contact these wonderful people

Our stay was beyond our expectations! The luxury tented stay, exceptional food and staff, professional game rangers (Mike is awesome) and variety of game that we saw made for a great value and memorable stay. The staff really go the extra mile to make you feel comfortable. Go hungry, don't forget the binoculars :)
