'Tents' are really luxury ensuite rooms with decking looking out onto game reserve - lovely lunch to begin stay followed by first of 2 game drive each are about three hours. Beautiful evening meal on the Lodge veranda. Nothing was too much trouble and of course exciting seeing wild game in natural surroundings with only shots taken with cameras.

Our ranger, Siya was extremely helpful and very well informed about the wildlife, and considering we were there for two days in pouring rain,he worked hard to ensure that everyone...

From the private, very comfortable spacious "tented" accomodation to the wonderful game drives and meals Springbok Lodge was as good as we had been told it was if not better. Some great bird and animal sightings warm hospitality made this a place that will be visited again, and again!

Mike greeted us at the collection point where we parked our vehicle and hopped onto a Springbok Lodge Game Drive vehicle. On the drive to the lodge, our first view of animals - we spotted some hippos wallowing in the pool. We were welcomed with some cool towels and a sparkling welcome drink. Behind the scenes - our luggage was...

Had a great time . The game drives were the highlight of our stay. Shaun our ranger was excellent and very knowledgeable. We saw so many animals and birds, from dung beetles to elephants and rhino. Enjoyed sleeping in the luxury tents and the outside shower was good fun.

We recently spent two nights in the luxury tent accommodation and enjoyed every minute it. The luxury tent is clean and comfortable - our highlight was the luxurious outdoor shower. The tents have air conditioning (which is a must in Summer) and an electric blanket (which we imagine is a must for winter) and is also equipped with insect and...

From the booking of the accomodation with Wendy at the front office, to the superb services of Ranger Siya who made the stay an absolute pleasure with his knowledge and willingness to assist and advise. So if you looking for a place in the bush to relax view game or be pampered, contact these wonderful people
