    Awesome private game drive lodge

    Very helpful hosts and amazing structure. The free transfer to the airport is a bonus. The safari team driven by Thomas was awesome and we could see the big five in only 2 drives. Their braai was also enjoyable. Recommended!

    Fantástico! Vale cada centavo! Tudo perfeito: vão nos buscar no aeroporto quando agendamos por e-mail e nos levam lá! Todos os funcionários são extremamente gentis e disponíveis com alegria! O sistema é all inclusive, mas bebidas estão fora, exceto nos games drives onde temos uma bebida inclusa, além de garrafas de água mineral à vontade. O quarto é super espaçoso com banheira, camas confortáveis e travesseiros divinos! As refeições super deliciosas! Uma atenção especial para o Thomáz que era o driver que acompanhou a maioria dos meus drivers: ele foi o máximo! Tudo perfeito!

    TRÈS bel hôtel immergé dans la réserve. Personnel très avenant et bienveillant. Le restaurant offre une cuisine haute gamme. Les safaris sont fabuleux avec des levers et des couchers de soleil à couper le souffle. Respect de la nature. Écoutez les conseils des guides sans les enfreindre pour ne pas vous mettre en danger ni les autres personnes qui sont avec vous dans la Jeep. Très dépaysant et calme. Les animaux sont aux portes du lodge non clôturé et de votre chambre.
