The staff are incredible. Our guides were utterly professional and had a staggering array of skills, knowledge and humour. They really made the trip. Bernard was a...

Dear Mouton2015 Thank you for the lovely review. There should always be ice available, but we are aware that due to exceptional heat at the time, the demand for ice was higher than usual and the ice machine battling to keep up. We did buy in additional ice, but as this took some travelling there was a short period when...

The walking Safaris at Plains Camp were the highlight of our trip and our guide was very helpful. We enjoyed being so close to the animals. The tents were comfortable and the food provided by the chef was delicious. The Plains Camp was a good contrast to Rhino Post Lodge which is more luxurious but with twice as many visitors....

Great experience. Wonderful staff. Excellent food. the staff was very friendly and courteous. The driving and walking safaris were great. Sleeping in the bush on elevated platforms with not a could in the sky (except the tent covering us), was amazing. Bernard (walking guide) was amazing, as was Marcius (driving guide). Would love to go back some day.

Great Lodge accommodation with friendly and knowledgeable staff. The position of the lodge next to a watering hole is excellent, with great game walking past daily. Game drives were very informative and full of great sightings.
