  • Really great weekend away, only 3 hours from Johannesburg. Staff were wonderful, food was tasty and room was neat and clean. Got to see a lot of wild life including 2 male lions…

    A recommander ! Absolument magnifique.

    Allez y sans inquiétude. Logdes sublimes, personnel adorable, vue magnifique, au milieu des animaux, paradis pour les enfants, balades possibles au milieu des girafes et zèbres (à pieds ou en velos). Absolument magnifique ! Vous pourrez également faire des safaris pour voir les bigs 5, 3x par jour (dont 1 inclus par nuit sur place).

    Ein traumhaftes Fleckchen Erde. Afrika pur. Super Landschaft, tolle Tiere und freundliche Menschen. Bitte unbedingt den 6 Stunden Game-Drive buchen. Man sieht da noch einmal eine ganz andere Landschaft als auf dem 3-Stunden-Drive. Man ist quasi alleine unterwegs und hört außer der Natur nichts mehr. Paradiesisch. Toll ist auch, dass man sich auf der Lodge zu Fuß oder mit dem Rad alleine bewegen kann. Das hatten wir bisher noch nirgends. Wir empfehlen diese Lodge uneingeschränkt weiter!!
