8/10 Very good

Magnificent place! Staff could not have been better or nicer. Some of the pictures are misleading, food next to the pool. I would recommend taking excursions and if you have never been on a safari make sure to go to Kruger. There is a big difference between the bush and open plains. The one thing that I didn’t like was communal eating with the same people you go on 2 game rides a day with. it felt like we were on vacation together. I prefer to select the people I share experiences with. One guest said something so offensive which diminished the experience because we were bound together for the remainder of our stay. I suggest letting them know you want to eat your meals separately at the time of booking. That way your actions don’t seem offensive.

Si vous cherchez une véritable expérience du safari vous êtes au bon endroit! Le lodge est tres beau, la cuisine et les vins sont aux tops, les safaris sont magiques et sa taille humaine en fait un endroit ou tout le monde se connaît rapidement et partage le plaisir d’être ensemble comme celui de la découverte des animaux. Que ce soit votre première expérience ou que vous soyez un habitué vous ne serez pas déçu. C’était une vrai belle surprise et compte tenu du prix je ne m’attendais pas à ces qualités de prestations.
