We didn't really know what to expect and feared we might soon get bored of safaris. After a few drives, you've seen the animal and just sit there, watching yet another animal.
That was *absolutely not the case*, and I really wished we had stayed...More
What a relaxing time. Saw the big 5 and more. Facilities are excellent and well equipped. Great staff - good bush knowledge. Traversing the different bush types was also interesting. Kids had a ball with good old playing games🤣. Great experience.
The hotel is an excelent place to relax. The safaris we made were incredible and the staff, specially Ross and Sidney, are amazing! The guys really makes the safari an excinting adventure! I just want to thank for these wonderful days!!!

I had an amazing experience at Xanatseni! I was traveling alone and was a little nervous about that but all of the staff were so welcoming that I never felt lonely. I was able to see every animal that I was hoping to see. On...More

Take a nice, warm fleece for morning and evening game drives. Sometimes you go all the way to the south of the park and it can get chilly in the open top jeep. Daps/closed toe shoes for outside evening dining (my son almost stepped on a Scorpion). Camera with a really good zoom lens, mind you the rangers get you so close to the animals, it’s unbelievable. Swimming costumes.. pool area is gorgeous!
You will LOVE Xanatseni! It’s such an amazing place and the staff are unbelievable. We will most definitely go back! Ps. Beware of the monkeys, they are so naughty. Keep your windows closed when you’re not in the room. They broke through the mosquito blind in our room and stole our crisps lol. Have an amazing time!!! Say hi to the staff for us.

Hi ...we were meant to fly direct from Cape Town to hoedspruit but hoedspruit airport was closed that day so we ended up landing at joburg. We then had to get a taxi up to xanatseni .... It took 9 hours and is an awful journey once you get out of joburg! Do not attempt it!!
Highly highly recommend flying into hoedspruit airport and then sorting a transfer through xanatseni to the lodge and back. We flew back from hoedspruit to joburg and transfer is only 30 mins and saw wildlife all the way!
