My husband and I have been to Africa three times on safari and this has been one of the weakest presentations of animals unfortunately. It is a nice size preserve, but the animals are small in numbers and once you've seen the lion pride of four, you've seen them all. Only 17 elephants of which we never found the herd...

The rondavels are very beautiful, also on the inside, with a nice bathroom, the beds are great, but we certainly missed a mosquitonet! The gamedrive up the mountain was very exiting, a whole new world once you are there. We had our diner at another lodge( Hanglip?), was cosy and good.

Fantastic accommodations, private & fun. Beautiful surroundings with panoramic views. Easily accessible from Jo'burg. The wildlife is plentiful and varied. Pit fires at night, the food could be better but not the main reason for coming here.
