Beautiful lodge, bounttiful game and superb hospitality – 3 spectacular days in the best of company. A warm welcome, attentive service all the time, really good food, carefully arranged communal areas, sumptuously furnished rooms, splendid guides and all the game you could hope for just outside the gate. All things considered the most accessible and highest value-for-money lodge that I’ve...

The lodge is only 2.5hrs from Johannesburg making it very convenient and easy to get to. It is located within the private concession in the northern part of Pilanesberg game reserve. We spent 3 nights in the lodge and felt very rested afterwards! Having a great field guide like Philip taking one around the park and the awesome sightings we...

We will be back again and again. We travelled with our two young kids and two of their grandparents and everybody had a fantastic time. The service was outstanding (Eva is an angel!) and Regina, the babysitter who looked after our kids while we went on the morning game drives, did an amazing job. A few luxury lodges 'accommodate' kids...

Everything was perfect. We felt like we were royalty, the service was so good. The food was sensational. We had the same ranger every time we went on safari so he knew what we had seen and what he had to look for. Great knowledge.

Excellent game drives both in the local reserve and in the Pilanesberg game park. Our guide Steyn was very knowledgeable and seemed to just 'know' where the best sightings would be. We had white lion males walk past the jeep about 2m from us, cheetahs, a brown hyena, elephant and buffalo to name a few... But the absolute highlight was...

Thoroughly enjoyed our time here. Game drives were good despite the drought! Our ranger, Steyn, was very knowledgable and went through a lot of effort to maximise the game drive! Room was amazing, food satisfactory.
