    The HIGHLIGHT of any trip to the Bush - the safari! What makes the difference of the safari is the lodge you stay with. I give a 100/100 score to Baobab Ridge. see my full review at https://www.tripadvisor.com.sg/ShowUserReviews-g471857-d2042245-r667630715-Baobab_Ridge-Klaserie_Private_Game_Reserve_Kruger_National_Park.html

    Bel posto, bella atmosfera. Ma il lodge avrebbe bisogno di un po' più di cura nei dettagli e soprattutto di una migliore organizzazione. Colazione, pranzo e cena andrebbero sicuramente migliorati...ovviamente il tutto rapportato al prezzo che si paga: per circa 700-800€ al giorno, aldilà dei safari, ci si aspetta qualcosa in più.

    Não existe Lodge melhor do que este. É excelente.

    É excelente. Toda a equipe de atendimento aos hóspedes é excelente. Os safáris foram excelentes pois conseguimos ver todos os Big Five.

    Um sonho de lugar com uma equipe incrível!

    Excelente hotel, com ótima localização. A equipara era muito atenciosa, especialmente o Jason que fez de tudo para que fosse uma viagem memorável. O hotel é um sonho, o pessoal que lá trabalha nem se fala. O motorista das games rides (David) foi incrível. Realmente, me senti em casa longe de casa. Voltarei mais vezes para esse maravilhoso local.
