We enjoyed our stay here. The place is gorgeous, accommodations are luxurious, and the staff is friendly and helpful. Game drives are definitely not the same as those we took in the Kruger area, but the scenery is outstanding and we saw a number of animals.

We travelled here as part of a motorcycle tour of South Africa. Access road was bad after heavy rain. Excellent accommodation and surroundings as you would expect from a hunting lodge. Sunset drinks on the reserve was something to remember.
