Wonderful experience at Eagles Crag

We spent one night at Eagles Crag and it surpassed my expectations. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Our accommodation was spectacular and an added bonus was a private heated pool. Our game driver was very knowledgeable and even educated us on the stars. We were celebrating my hubby's birthday and we were treated to a bottle of champagne on ice after our game drive and a beautiful cake specially made for him the next day. Thanks to everyone at Eagles Crag for making this a memorable experience.

Amazing stay

Leeds, United Kingdom

We stayed at Eagles Crag for 3 nights and absolutely loved it! From the moment we walked in we were treated like royalty by all the staff and this continued for the whole stay. The food is outstanding, from the amazing huge breakfasts, to the lovely afternoon teas and then finished off by a wonderful evening meal. The room was amazing, the biggest bed imaginable, huge shower room and brilliant plunge pool. The other facilities were also great, such at the lounge and gym. Thanks to all the staff who were amazing and ensured we had the perfect 3 nights. We would definitely recommend staying at Eagles Crag!
