Stayed three nights and found the accommodations good. The only problem was it being early winter and no heat in the cabins very cold when you get up in the morning. Electric sheet keeps you toasty all night but you move fast to get dressed. Friendly staff and game drives outstanding, Aubrey is the finest and saw many animals up...

My guests spent a few nights at Wildside and had a great time spotting animals on the game drives. The accommodation is tented accommodation and a bit rustic but this contributes to the lodge atmosphere. The tents are clean and stocked with tea, coffee & milk satchels with a kettle.

I was so looking forward to this trip but left very disappointed. It is very clear that this camp has become tired, there is no feeling of being spoilt or any luxury at all. The food is very average, the buffets are not presented well and did not look appetising. We were there for 2 nights and on the second...

My son and I experienced a fantastic 3 hour game drive from rhino and antelope on the upper escarpment to lion, wildebeest and lots of other game on the lower escarpment. A truly magical place in a stunning location and at only 270 rand per person it was great value.
