From the moment we arrived to the time we left this was an exceptional stay. Our accommodation was lovely and comfortable with a great view and plunge pool. It is a game reserve so isn't fancy, rather it is natural and stylish. The food was varied and tasty. The all inclusive drinks were standard (no limited choices) and we didn't...

We did 4 gamedrives and saw all the animals we had hoped to see, elephants, lions, giraffes, zebras, rhinos, hippos etc. Our guide, Chelee was excellent, very knowledgeable and friendly. Our chalet was very clean apart from the plunge pool but we didn't need it as there was a lovely...

My husband booked this as a surprise anniversary present and it was simply a fantastic experience. The accommodation, food, staff and whole safari experience could not be faulted. Jaybe was our ranger and he was just brilliant-the cocktails and breakfast on the plains were amazing and the walking safari he took us on is an absolute must do for anyone...

We stayed for 3 nights in Ukhozi Lodge No. 4. It is like a log cabin - in the hallway you have the wardrobes, mini bar and tea/coffee station. The bathroom is open plan with a privacy screen.
