My wife and I stayed for four days at the lodge and would quite simply recommend it to anyone. The staff are superb, with special mention to the long serving Precious who was there daily to ourRanger Micah, who without exception was tremendous. We saw the “big five” regularly, with the pick being a pride of eleven young lions and lionesses. Thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of our stay and that included the gourmet food on offer as well. Many thanks indeed.

Perfect Honeymoon Getaway

Singapore, Singapore

It was one of the best holiday destinations that we have been to. We had free flow of local wines, beers and spirits and including food. We were both well fed everyday. What made it more special was the company of the staffs that work there. It was more like family. We had one of the best rooms (Room no.1). It had the most spectacular view of the game Reserve. We saw some Giraffes, Baboons and impalas from our room. There were 2 beds. We could choose to sleep either inside or outside (where you have the view of millions of stars and the sound of nature. Highly recommend sleeping outside. They cleaned the room twice a day and every night they leave a lil poem on our bed with 2 chocolates. The plunge pool was our favourite too. Everyday we had 2 game drives and our guide Mr Jan was amazing! It was like we had a new task everyday. He is so passionate in his job and he made us see all the Big 5. We didn't have to ask what we wanted to see because every game drive was mind blowing. It was like we were going for hunts everyday! It was exciting!The animals at the Game Reserve were extraordinary. I also highly recommend going to their spa. Ms Abbey who is one of the therapist does massages the Reiki technique. She is the ability to see your Aura and it is so accurate! We really missed all the staff and we hope to be back soon one day. Thank you for the company.
