We really enjoyed our stay. There is a lot of room in the well equipped accommodation. Perfect for self catering, but don't forget your food. The next store is 18 KM away. The game drive was great, many thanks to Kurt. We will recommend it very much.

We had a wonderful time. Staff were attentive and responsive to requests. We had one guide assigned to us for the entire trip providing continuity and ongoing education during the daily game drives and off reserve side trips to the state parks. Would recommend African Spirit to anyone who has ever wanted to visit South Africa.

We loved the lodge. The rooms were very comfortable with aircon which was a real treat in the heat of December. We chose the fully catered option and they went the extra mile to cater for our son who is 14 months and needs his food at very different hours to us. As we expected, there really is not a...

Everything about our stay was really great, the only thing we would have liked is more time between the end of the afternoon game drive and dinner. We felt very rushed with no time even to shower and change. We also felt that the food could have been a little better with more variety and options but we did enjoy...
