    Perfect first safari experience!

    My girlfriend and I stayed for three nights at the end of March to finish off what had been an amazing trip to Cape Town. We literally do not have a single complaint, all food was amazing from breakfast, lunch and dinner with two different starter and main course chefs and a dessert chef providing exceptional 5star food. A birthday cake and song was kindly given as a surprise for my birthday, as embarrassed as I may have been 😳 General service could also not have been better with constant attention given to ensure a perfect stay. The location is peaceful and provides a great view over the lodge’s watering hole which if lucky has some great game viewing, and the surrounding reserve. Our lodge “Zebra 1” was consistently spotless with comfy bedding, and all the amenities and more, and some occasional lion roars from outside to make it extra special. Both guides we had: Josphat and Ifram (apologies if this is incorrectly spelt) were both exceptional at spotting and getting close viewing of the desired “Big Five” as well as some other beautiful wildlife and fauna. Both were incredibly interesting and gave a great insight into the animals and everything about the reserve. The perfect place to top off an amazing 2 week stay in South Africa and

    Ótimo hotel! Safáris excepcionais. Quartos amplos e com grande conforto. O que fica a desejar é a comida, que depois de um dia começa a ficar repetitiva no sabor. Piscina não aquecida, o que dificultou aproveitar essa área de lazer, pois estava frio
